Have you ever had something so good and really exciting that made you want to jump out of your skin and scream to the high heavens, but at the same time it was a catalyst and a fine important recipe for disaster? Perhaps, maybe not all things in life may claim to have both the good, the bad and the ugly qualities at the same time, and very few things can boast of having these devastating qualities in their ranks, but if there is anything so amazing and scary when deep considerations are put into the matter and when the light is shone from another perspective, it is the paradoxical effects of having to set a goal for yourself in life.
It is not the quick steps that counts, it is the giant strides that matters.

Can anyone be perfect?
Let me guess, automatically, your answer is an emphatic NO!!! How dare we say we are perfect, or have the idea that we can be perfect in this world where there are so many reasons and ways to prove that every man is still subjected to his own share of demons and weaknesses? Who are we to place ourselves or dream of comparing our broken image with the status of a God-like personality who is not subjected to our enormous inabilities and glorious shortcomings? Or have we forgotten so soon that we, all of the time, are enslaved by our own passions and desires, that even when we see can clearly recognize that these desires are not as pure as our intents, we labor so dearly to see that we get what we want? How then can we talk about perfection or even dream of the idea of it when we are plighted with these inadequacies?

Now if you are reading this at this point, then it is most certain that you are one of three categories. Perhaps you are among those who I have really succeeded in stirring up their curiosity and appetite for the understanding of this problem and to figure out the solution, or perhaps you are among those who have no conviction of what I have been writing, and you are only reading this just to see where it ends. And yes, the third category are those who are neither here nor there, only reading for the fun of it; but then, I must make known one startling truth; the answer, as we should see here, may never truly satisfy our raging curiosity and the answer we get here may never come close to what we hoped for, but surely, it will stand with time.
It’s no telling secret that the dawn of each new day brings with it a bearable burden that stirs up a familiar concern within us as a constant reminder, and in the similitude of a nagging lady, begging us to conjure an answer to the challenge, how can I change the world today? Or more importantly, how can I affect someone’s life today? Well, except you are not thinking or musing over this, then I must be very candid to point out that your problem is quite bigger than what we are delicately trying to uncover here, because the purpose of every life is to affect another, and if for any reason we find ourselves failing to achieve this, then we probably don’t deserve to live.
Wow! it’s really been a while since i wrote anything here, i must confess, and while i may have a genuine reason for that, i sincerely apologise for going off the grid just like that.
Well, it really have been crazy and busy these past few days, coupled with me trying to complete my book, which by God’s grace and help, will be published this year, (yes, i said it, I am writing a book, yaaahhh!!!) and other time consuming matters, i must confess, i really do miss this place. And just in case you are reading this, and you are a publisher, or you know a very good publisher, please get in touch with me, I will so love to have a conversation with you.
So, let’s go into what we have for today.
Life doesn’t start with you, neither does it end with you.
Think about this, before you were, there have been, and after you, there will still be. Now this may seem a little bit crazy and scary because we may be tempted to question the value and importance of our existence and ask questions like, ‘Am I really important’? Or ‘Why then was i created’?
Well, the beautiful truth is, You are very important, You are Priceless, You are Valuable, but the worth of your existence can only be measured with what you inspire in others even after you have gone.
Believe me, You won’t be here forever, inasmuch as we wish we could stay even when time is no more, but the hard truth is, at some point, you will leave, everyone will leave, and it doesn’t matter how much we believe we have invested in a place, we all have to leave, and after we have gone, life will still continue.
The question we must begin to ask ourselves is, ‘What do I do with the time i have’?
You may not have the power to control what had been before you, but you do have every opportunity to decide what happens after you are gone. What you do with the limited time you have will determine what is said of you.
Think of it, what will you inspire when you are no more? because you will leave.
The weight and the pain,
The hurt and the tears,
The night and the terrors,
A lonely heart feels it all.
Time may not heal it all,
Words may not solve it all,
Success may not cover it all,
For a love lost may never be replaced
See those smiling faces,
Hear those singing voices,
Watch those dancing feet,
For they are what will be remembered when time and music stops.
So, love everyone you can,
Cherish everything you can,
Appreciate those around you today,
For you never know who may stay or leave tomorrow.
