Hope all is well, as I don’t know about my grandfather’s Mr Ndhleleni Ephriam Sesi, where about. He has lived a life and I appreciate who he portrayed in my life.
He and my grandmother Nophumzile Gloria Sesi which he use to call her Nozakhe or Zakhe (RIP) were good parents. They both ensured our house in Khayelitsha was a home, proper to raise a happy young man I am today.
So that you know about a wonderful life, cared for. I guess that’s the reason it’s quite celebrated. My name is Sivuyile Sviggy Sesi which was also named as Michael. Very special that one born after me, she is called Vuyiseka, then after is Thokozile which we are about nine siblings, not forgetting my cousin sister Noluvuyo. My family is quite big and one in the family has own life.
It’s not that bad living at No: 3633 Luvuyolwethu Crescent, Ntokozweni, Crossroads, Nyanga, 7750. Konke nje kuyindlela nje ekhethekileyo, engaqondakaliyo, meaning it’s not easy it’s complicated.
The General Assembly of the United Nations in its resolution 66/281 of 12 July 2012 proclaimed 20 March the International Day of Happiness recognizing the relevance of happiness and well- being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives.
“On this first International Day of Happiness, let us reinforce our commitment to inclusive and sustainable human development and renew our pledge to help others. When we contribute to the common good, we ourselves are enriched. Compassion promotes happiness and will help build the future we want.” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Message for the International Day of Happiness, 20 March 2013
The United Nations invites Member States, international and regional organizations, as well as civil society, including non-governmental organizations and individuals, to observe the International Day of Happiness in an appropriate manner, including through education and public awareness-raising activities.
Thought of the day to everyone: “In the midst of my sceptical, cynical, often pessimistic nature exists a slender capacity to believe, if only temporarily, in a guiding, unseen power, and whenever this happens, I go with it. That’s what inspiration is. You don’t get it from the gods. You make it.”— Jeffrey
