My Harsh Africa~Guest blog by Lizelle LeRoux

Today I believe I have squeezed out the last morsel of harshness from my body.

I am willing to make PEACE with you now Africa!

I accept you! I allow you to be you!

I now allow Me to be ME! I am not you!

I have been you for too long, unwittingly, I have soaked you up for 20 years, then ran as far and as wide as I could, to ‘get rid’ of you, to be FREE. Another 20 years later I am back, to make PEACE!

I can no longer run. My body has halted me.  I have completely exhausted my body, hopefully not beyond repair, running for 20 years to get away from you, but all this time, you were inside me.

Your harshness, your pain, your suffering, your struggle, your rape, your violence, your abuse, your isolation, your humiliation, your mistrust, your shame, your cruelty. 

Never a moment of PEACE, never a moment of just Being, Relaxing, feeling SAFE, feeling Cared for, feeling Supported, Provided for. NO, never in Africa, and never with Africa still inside me. 

I release you now! Into your beauty, your wildness, your storms, and your self induced lack and limitation.

I receive with humble gratitude, the power, the strength, the absolute incomprehensible levels of perseverance, the ability to ‘survive’, to always have hope, to see beauty and possibility in everything. 

Thank you Africa!

I set you free now, as I set myself FREE!
