I’ve been pondering my roots…
Did you know that The Ivory Coast is the world’s largest cocoa producer? This relatively unknown West-African nation gifted the human race with 1.448 million metric tons of its yummy goodness in 2013 – 31.6% of the world’s total.
What does this have to do with my roots?
41 years ago (yesterday), Lil’ Baby Conz breathed his first breath of the warm equatorial air in Abidjan, The Ivory Coast’s second capital.
Two civil wars later, she boasts a fast growing economy, a stable democracy…
She’s the jewel of West Africa.
Her rich, tastelicious resources are one reason.
Let’s be that way, too.
Let’s find one thing we’re good at – a gift, something we contribute to the world – seed it, grow it to the max, then harvest its fruits and share them as broadly as possible. That’s where I’m at these days. Hope you’ll accept my challenge and join me there.
So this is 41, huh?
Not quite what I expected.
Then again, that’s the journey.
I figure about five more years and I’ll have this “life” thing figured out.
To Your Gift,
