Another Blog About Botho

 

A while ago I wrote a blog called Botho and I promised more blogs about the same subject. If you don’t know what Botho is or you didn’t read my first blog you can read it here: https://graciechicksblog.wordpress.com/2015/11/26/botho/

This blog is about how I apply Botho to life in my family.

To be honest, I  don’t always think about Botho, but in some situations I do. For example, the other day we didn’t have much milk and I was first, Botho was absent from my mind so I used too much and there wasn’t enough for my Mum. But then another time when my sister wanted to walk a friend’s dog before school I remembered. She really loves to do it, but she had to do her jobs as well and she was going to be really late so I thought: “I’ll do her jobs for her!” and I did. The reason I did this was because I wanted her to be able to enjoy her walk and not worry about being late. I also wanted to use this opportunity to live Botho style!  Afterwards I felt good because I had thought of her before myself.

The key is to think about Botho in everyday situations you find yourself in and try to make your decision based on what’s best for the people around you.  I need to try as well, we all do if we want harmony and peace for our world.

 

 

Botho may start within one country, Botswana, but I believe that it can spread around the whole world. Then we will live in peac and harmony, no more fighting.

  1. That was a lovely thing to do for Irys Gracie and I’m sure she really appreciated it. I think the Cub Scout Law is very like Botho “A Cub Scout always does their best, thinks of others before themselves and does a good turn every day”. It can be difficult but I do try to apply this to my daily life and I think it helps. It’s always nice to help other people and can really make you feel happy, I know I do x
