Weekly photo challenge: Create – Rose tinted spectacles

The other day, whilst listening to a rather boring talk on how to create a better future for ourselves here in South Africa, sitting amongst some rather stuffy business people, the speaker said we have to create work, and our happiness, for ourselves as if we have no government.

“Don’t wait for Pretoria*, they’re not going to pitch up.” (*Pretoria is the SA’s executive capital, where our president’s office is situated).

This week’s theme made me think of this guy, who I met on a media field trip, doing a story on water being supplied to a very poor community.

“I see a bright future,” he told me. He has literally, and figuratively, created is own rose tinted spectacles.

  3. And I love his positive approach… The same attitude keeps many desperately poor people alive around the world… Thanks for sharing this!🙂

    • In my work I meet a lot of desperately poor people, and most of them are, on the surface at least, happy. I think it comes with learning to live with what you have and never wanting more than you need.
