🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃🍂 Do you want life to work for you? Then you must work for you. Wishing, hoping, simply sitting and waiting for good things to arrive in your life don’t work well. What does work well is, when you do the work to bring about the kind of life you desire. The more responsibility you take for your own life, the more satisfied you’ll be with the way life unfolds. The more you invest your time, effort, imagination, and creativity in life, the richer your life will be. It might sometimes seem that a free ride, no effort, and no responsibility would be nice. But that’s not the case at all. What truly makes life good is, knowing you’re deeply involved in making life good. What brings real fulfillment is when you are working, with commitment and persistence, to create that fulfillment. Give up any fantasy of a fairy-tale life simply dropping into your lap. The very best life for you is, the life you’ve worked to create for you. 🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃🍂
1. Ethiopia Top of the list sits Ethiopia, a profoundly beautiful East African country with a history that stretches back many thousands of years. It was never colonised, so the tribal customs and hospitable traditions you can see here are largely just as they’ve always been. Take the Ethiopian coffee ceremony: the women of the household meticulously roast, grind and boil the aromatic beans, before presenting three consecutive cups of exceptionally fresh coffee to their guests. The process can last for hours, but it’s considered a real mark of friendship.
