Last week I felt hugely inspired in London too. Well, it’s always inspiring but this was an especially wonderful week. After visiting the Women of the World Festival on the South Bank – celebrating International Women’s day, and attending the Woman on the Move Awards – I felt incredibly moved by all the stories, refugee women who had gone through possibly anyone’s biggest nightmares, but yet they are courageous and persevere and look forward to a better future making a change for themselves and others.
It seems that the news in the past year have been extremely depressing and the world is losing hope to become a better place. I find it extremely saddening that we only see and hear about dreadful things people do to one another.
Unfortunately ‘the news’ mostly reports about terrible stories, which would discourage anyone to believe goodness in the world still exists. It is hardly motivating when we see no light at the end of the tunnel to keep moving forward.
There are many incredible projects and people who have brought change to many people in the world. It is great to hear these motivating stories as they make us see that there are good people achieving amazing things through pulling together, persevering and believing that change can happen, that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
