I had a really ordinary day yesterday. One that started out pretty normal but by 11.30am had quickly changed and completely thrown me for a six. While a part of me had sensed it coming, I was in a bit of a daze for a few hours. Enter the good friends who keep me grounded and the reminders from Fiji about what is really important.

I am constantly amazed at the resilience of the, let’s call them, materially poor. Self pity is not a luxury that can be afforded and resourcefulness rules, no matter what the circumstances. In short they bounce back. They have to if they want to survive.

So today I decided to bounce too.

Something that made me smile as I was considering a litre of ice cream last night, was the discovery of new friends who have raised money for our girls through the Sydney and Melbourne running festivals.

It total so far we have all raised nearly $4000!

This money will help the girls we support and their families bounce even higher…

Warmly,

Jane for team a Girl & her world
