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.
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.
It’s been quite a while since i wrote anything, not for lack of what to write or shortage of inspiration, the truth is that i have been lazy to write, and even as i write this, i am not so sure if at the end of this little ‘unsensible’ piece, i will still find the strength to hit the publish button. Well, i do hope i make that decision.
Maybe you are reading this and you are already thinking or saying out loud, “this person is not so serious with writing”, or you may find it funny to hear me say, “writing is my life”, yea, i know, it does sounds like a joke, but truthfully, that’s the truth. winks!
I had a goal for this blog this year, (had, not have) and we are barely gone past the first quarter of the year, but here i find myself thinking if i should make a different goal or try to find a way to achieve this not broken but bent goal.
But thinking about it, there is no big a dream or bright an idea i could think of or have that will come to reality if those little foxes that destroys the vines are not taken care of. I guess all will still amount to me chasing the wind.
I know my problem, or at least two of them, and before now i thought i had them under control, but if the past few weeks have taught me anything, it is that, Our weakness and fears are constantly looking for new ways to overcome us, and if we go to sleep without beating them into submission, we give them the opportunity to overtake us.
And now, i must learn again how to be consistent.
To be sincere, I have no words to quantify or qualify how I feel right now.

HHow I started my blog.
Well to be honest, writing is my life, and in the midst of this chaotic world, I find peace in my scribblings.
I was going through a terrible ordeal at some point in my life, having lost my sister and mother to the cold hands of death, my life felt like it wasn’t going anywhere, and I was wallowing in the pit of depression, but writing saved me, God used it to save me. I had a diary where I wrote my thoughts and emotions, and I felt, hey why not share what you feel and think with the world, they may help you or benefit from it. So I started blogging, and the more I write, the more I hear a voice in my head telling me to continue. I can’t remember a day where I don’t write something.
Don’t let me bore you with your long story.
Advice to New bloggers.
Well, I don’t know if I am qualified to be giving advice because I am still a toddler in this world of blogging, but if I were to say something, I will say, Be You, Be Original. Write from the inside, and write it the way you see it. You don’t have to use superfluous words to convey your thoughts, just keep it simple and honest.
My Own Nominations.
Well, 15 is quite a number, and there are so, many beautiful blogs I have read, so I will just mention a few. This doesn’t mean others are not beautiful, every blog I follow are amazing.
Of course, there are still many blogs I enjoy and I know are deserving of this nomination.
It is quite refreshing to share a little of myself, I have always wanted to do this, maybe this will make me share more, but for now, I am just happy for this recognition.
