They say, take time and find yourself… Well,when I had nothing to lose, I had everything and when I stopped being who I am, I found myself… Now, that sounds like a positive way to start the month after what seemed like a trendy August… Githeriman chronicles, vifaranga Wa kompyuta and now, this paper bag ban… Too much for a month don’t you think??
Anyway, let’s snap out of that already… September got me up with some new energy… I think I’m going to take over the world this time round –well, last time I overslept… So how bouh we do it together?? Sounds like a deal to me…
Coming out of the masses… And marking your circle – Come on, both you and I know we have loads of people who if I may say, aint all thaaaaat necessary.. Oh yeah! I think I just said that and you don’t like how it sounds right??
I know you love your clique… Oh! I also know how funny Jim is… Buuuut here’s the real deal You cannot laugh from Monday to Sunday… Funny could lead to tears
You MUST say goodbye to some people… If they dont help you become half the person you wanna be six years from now… Theeeen, its that time of the party we call right abou’ now….
You see, It‘s easier to let go of people you don’t like… But sometimes they’re those you need more.. I know that sounds crazy, but here’s why… They’ll give it to you straight outta the pan… They’ll be so blatant when you do it wrong… And that’s what makes us uuuhm,“ not reaaaaallly hate them ”
I’ve found myself countless times passive-aggresively defend myself with that statement… At first its normally like ‘i hate so and so ’ then I slowly drop it to ‘i don’t really hate them…. I just don’t like how they do this and that… ’… But come to think of it, most times, we’re the ones with the problem.
Hang around people who tell you what you need to hear… Not what you want to hear
Its obvious that, our cliques will definitely tell us what we want to to hear… But come to think of it, its like ;
A blind man winking at a woman in a dark room and expecting a reaction... If u want to be better, you cannot please everyone… We’ve heard people time and again say that if you wanna please everyone then Sell ice cream.
Be around people who are where you wanna be..
Leave the crowds... If you wanna grow spiritually, then Spend time with God to build your spiritual muscles. That way, temptations will be just a whisper..
But along the way… You’ll find people who’ll tell you that you can’t get any far.. I mean, we’ve all had people of such caliber who in fact will count down days for you just to see go back to that person you’re trying hard not to be. But, lemme prepare you in advance ; Some people are raised by the devil to remind you of your past…so here’s the thing, make peace with yourself.
They say life is 10 % what you make it and 90% how you take it. Forgive more and love deep. Dont let it go to your head. Being bitter is like drinking poison and expecting the public to die.
Get better for yourself and the people around you.. Everytime u keep building yourself the results will show… Build your thick skin if you have to be better because, If u allow people to bring u down, you’ll come down.
Whatever weakness you have, You got to turn it to your good… Dont concentrate on what you cannot do, it will become an imperfection..And as you climb the ladder up, remember that you’ll be required to climb down and serve others.. So, be humble.
Humility is not wearing a torn shirt, or wearing the same pair of shoe for over a decade and leaving it behind for your grand children …thats fake humility!! Humility will come from being broken before God and only after that, can it be manifested to other people.
Anyone who makes you feel bad about yourself is actually amplifying their insecurities..
You gotta go ahead and be who you wanna be… But first, there are some people you need to shed off…
Look into the future eyeball to eyeball and say, I’M COMING FOR YOU…!!
