A community is defined as the condition of sharing or having certain attitudes and interests in common. It’s 3 months since we have relocated to Montagu and initially, it was difficult as we do not know many people in the area. Our friends and family from Cape Town ensured that we didn’t feel alone and we had visitors often.
We are starting to meet new people, some as new to the town as we are. On Freedom Day I went adventuring with newbies like me and a local youngster. Learning new things about the area is always fascinating and then having the opportunity to share your knowledge with others. It is similar to travel. Our need to explore feeds our curiosity and opens our worlds to new things.
Often we enjoy routine and familiarity as it provides us with structure and certainty. It also leads to us being in a comfort zone and we all know that growth doesn’t happen in this space.
