The Curse Of Trust 

So I was thinking if I should share this with you now or wait till my book gets published. Well, I guess I have made my decision already.

Here is a summarized piece of a chapter from my book soon to be published; I really hope you will get the book when it is finally out. (Though it is quite lengthy, I tried my best to reduce it as much as I could). Enjoy this one, and please don’t forget to leave a comment. Much love.

Tell me, What is the biggest burden a man can ever place on you? And What can be so scary and so heavy that you dread to take it on your fragile shoulders? Tell me, What can it be?

Take a moment to think.

To Be Loved Or To Be Trusted? Make A Choice. 

Can I ask you a question?

Have you ever been in love? Or have you ever loved someone so deeply that you swore you could capture the entire heavens as a proof of your unequivocal love?

If you have, then you know how it feels.

Now, have you ever been trusted with something so real and so special? Or have you ever trusted someone so deeply that within you, you had taken the decision to lay down your life if ever a situation demands it?

If you have, then you know how it feels.

Now to my question, (I know I have already asked 2 questions). If you have ever experienced any of these two blissful encounters, and at some point in life you are given only one option to choose out of these two choices, To Be Loved Or To Be Trusted, where will your answer swing to? 

To be loved or To be trusted? Make a decision.

What If Our Words Were Numbered? 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like or how it will feel like if you suddenly wake up one day to the reality that you have only a hundred (100) words to use for each day of your life?

Take a moment to think.

And it doesn’t just stop there. At the end of each day, you must give a report to someone of how you made use of the 100 words allocated to you.

Crazy right?!! Yea, I know, but think about it for a moment.

Now, the question is, What Will You Say?  Continue reading

My Thoughts In 10 Minutes: Day 1.

Will I Ever Be Successful? 

No doubt the last year is gone, and the new year is come, but one thing will always remain, your desire to be successful. 

Of a truth, accomplishments were made and a few desires gotten, maybe you recorded some achievement, maybe got that degree you have been chasing, got that job you wanted, bought that house, wrote that book, started that blog, or even got married or engaged to your sweetheart, and now with the year before you, so early as it is, you are starting to ask if this year will that year where all your dreams come true, and you have probably already envisaged how the end of the year would look like and what you must have achieved by that time, well, it is all good and nice, but honestly, pause for a moment. 

Ask yourself, “Am I ready for success?” 

It is very easy to be swept off the ground with the desire to be successful or the noise people make about it so quickly that most times we forget that there is always a  process to go through and one we must prepare for. We focus so much at the end of the journey that we totally ignore the journey itself, trying so hard to catch up with those ahead of us that we forget everyone got their own path to walk in and a process to follow. The question, “will I ever be successful?” begins to play in our hearts when we realize we are not getting exactly what we dreamed, not realizing that the amount of success we get is directly proportional to the amount of time spent in preparation. It is as simple as that. If you want a lasting successful story, then you must be ready to sacrifice time, and if you want that overnight success, be sure it will last for one night. 

Many atimes, we don’t get what we want because we don’t have the stamina to handle it. Some success are destructive because of poor preparation and management, so in order for us not to perish as a result of it, it doesn’t come to us. That is why I am saying, take your time, as for success, it will surely come. 

Do not rush to attain success, prepare for it. 

Do you want to have a successful career, then go get that knowledge and certificate needed. Do you want to be a successful fashion designer, go harness that skill. Do you want to publish that book, then learn how to be a better writer. Stop wasting your time looking at the distance you have to cover to meet up with those ahead, instead, focus on your process. Trust your process, ignore the side talks, don’t bother about the time, just get that fundamental you need to launch, and when you finally do launch, you will realize that you have all it takes to be what you have always dreamed of. 

So don’t rush to be successful, prepare for it, for success is sweeter when you prepare for it.

The Incomplete Love. 

“I have been in love, yes, I have tasted of its magical savor. I have eaten of its enchanting fruits, and have been held sway by its mesmerizing bliss. I have danced under the open sky, and have experienced my heart been melted with every touch of a raindrop. I have kissed a thousand times, but did all that on  just one lips, and I have loved in thousand ways, but did all that with just one soul. In all these things, I found, love becomes a blessing when the heart trusts who it loves.” 

These were the words of a much other person I have come to respect and to value in this short life I have lived. Interestingly, as the words flowed from her lips, like streams of water from a rock, I couldn’t help but notice, in between her words, Love is indeed beautiful, but trust is a different universe of its own.

Smoke

I got a call late last night; I can’t correctly remember what time it was, but the full moon that hung across the dark sky shone unhindered as silence reigned unperturbed. The wind blew softly as my eyes searched the entire heavens for a star, I was thinking about someone.

The buzz of my phone returned me to consciousness, just in time for me to retire to bed, prompting a big smile to hang at the corner of my lips. I was thinking about her.

Taking a brief pause, I exhaled heavily before answering the phone,

“Hey Blue, (not her real name) how are you?”

Truthfully, I was expecting a response so refreshing and soothing because this was someone I had been thinking about, but what I got made me quake in my boots as my body stiffened, causing my heart to skip a beat. Her voice was laced with heaviness, and I could sense the curly tentacles of regrets and remorse swirling around her breath as she asked me the most cryptic question I swear I  won’t ever wish to hear again.

“Enddy”, she began, “How will you feel if you find out that everything you think you knew about me had been a lie?”
