THE BEST PLACE TO BE IN THE WEEKENDS.


I love weekends.

I see it as a part of the week that i get to examine, plan and relaunch myself for the next.

Once I begin to have a very busy and tiring week, I begin to long for weekends. And it got to be a specific weekend. Very specific.

You will believe me that not all weekends are alike. No, they are not.

Have you woken up to a weekend where you work yourself up from the beginning to the end. No time for leisure, creativity or fun. Just boring chores that will want to choke you if they literally have hands. That’s not funny, but it is. I tell you.

But, you know, weekends are great. It’s always beautiful especially when the weather is awesome.

By awesome, I mean mild, bright and sunny day. Weathers like these are top notch for me.

Imagine waking up to a sun filled day, bright bluish sky, and a little mild temperature. It sparks up beautiful and scintillating memories.

No doubt you had some of those experiences too. Ever woken up to feel like today is actually another day? Yes, I’ve experienced it.

Lately I had that experience. It was so nice that I had to remember the aroma of some delicacies. It was as if those aromas where there lurking in the cloud waiting for  me to experience it’s touch on my senses.

Think about a place where you need to be renewed?

Think of a place where you need to strengthen more?

Think of a place where you need rekindle the flames burning in you already?

Think of a place where your sanity expresses life?

Think of a place where your happiness will know no bounds?

Think of a place where you get rejuvenated?

Think of a place where heaven touches the sky?

Think of Church!

I mean it.

Those hymns that are sung by the choirs. Oh, how wonderful. Very apt. Touches the deepest part of my soul.

Sometimes I wonder if they are Angels. Come on, am serious. Whenever I here them sing, especially the voice of the children choir, I am lost in the heavens.

Then imagine if the priest or pastor is such a lively personality. You would want to sleep in there because everywhere will just be alive, healthy and on fire for God.

DELAY IS NOT DENIAL.

Delay can be defined as a situation in which something happens later than it should.

Denial can be defined as an unwillingness to grant something asked for.

Delay is sometimes caused by our refusal to deny what has the capability to cause delay.

However, delay comes in order to teach us how to endure. For in endurance we get God’s Approval, and in getting God’s approval we have Hope.

What causes delay in Life is not far from Composure, Attitude and Relationship.

In Composure, how you act before an opportunity. Do you judge without reasoning? Do you make a Move without deep contemplation? Do you react without reasoning? Do you solve without calculation?

In Attitude, how you behave before a fellow human being. Do you segregate or despise? Do you irritate or devalue? Do you connect or disconnect? Do you engage or disengage?

In Relationship, how you relate with your fellow human beings. Do you appreciate each others work? Do you help each other achieve their goals? Do you complement solutions? Do you commend efforts made?

Delay sometimes comes when we are not ready.

If a child asks his father who owns an estate asks for a flat at an age of 8, his father won’t be able to give him such a wish because his son is yet to understand the value of what he is asking for.

You can’t get ahold of something you barely know how to manage or Value. You will devalue and mismanage it instead.

Everything In Life is accorded to your capacity. Temptations and challenges are accorded to your level of understanding. You don’t get what will kill or useless you. You get what you will be able to solve and excel. This is why there is a class, a division and a family.

Delay is also caused by the act of giving up and Lack of persistency in approaching what you intend doing.

Delay can not be avoided but certainly, the part or path of denial can be avoided.

This can be achieved through;

Knowledge ; The information you get from experiences. Teaching or being Taught. Working or being worked for. Leading or being lead.

I recommend you read my post on Why Books and Knowledge is not power

Understanding ; To form an opinion or reach a conclusion through reasoning and Information. Knowing how something works. Knowing what is being said or saying what is being known.

Wisdom ; The Application of knowledge through right conception. Applying what is being known and experienced in a justifiable way.

Hope you got value?

Before you give up on the victory so far – Read this

There is Hope. There is the future. We cannot stop because of what happened to us. A true warrior is known by his scars. This is our scar. This is our pain. But we shall bear it. And we shall prevail. We shall see gain coming with arms wide open to us.

It will not be easy. As the day goes by, as the weeks follow duly and as the months run into years: it will not be easy to forget. But we can forgive ourselves of the cautions we failed. We can look forward to a better days: ‘Cause we know they will come by.

Let’s motivate ourselves. Let’s encourage ourselves. Let’s raise our hands once again and believe that it will be well with us: cause it will!

The best we could do now is to encourage one another. Send text. Make video calls. Stay connected. This virus might be deadly but there are viruses much deadlier than this.

Fear. Depression. Loneliness. Insecurity. These are viruses of the mind. And you will believe me that anything that affects the mind has a consequence on the body.

Let’s keep hope alive. As long as there is Life, salvation is around the corner.

Together we can. Let’s also remember our brothers and sisters in other nations where it hits most. Let’s put them in our prayers. God will surely save them, Amen!

We’ve been through this before. We can still do it again. There is the light at the end of the tunnel.

Before you give up on your future – Read this

One can even determine when you ought to move and when not to move. Surprisingly enough they will predict your future; which is more crazier than crazy.

I came to understand that no matter what you do people will have that short sentence they will have to say about it.

Like, if you try to do something that they don’t understand, they will cuss up and down the sky looking for a way to take you along with their misery.

Sincerely, what you need to understand is this; the act of talking and discussion will never end. It won’t. Even if it wants to, it just can’t.

Funny enough, the dead, ghost alike, talk also. They do so, and Sometime, they gossip about, leaving what they are supposed to do. Which is Rest!.

But Hey, do you know that, Being ‘Talked’ about or discussed, is a natural Phenomenon that, i will say, makes you a ‘Somebody’, something ‘Worthy of discussion’ and should you heed to it,you will never get to where you are meant to go in Life.

However, being dictated, made a zombie, and literally configured on a course by certain individuals, is what those ‘certain individuals’ could do and you, keeping the tabs on, keeping it real and remaining focused, is what you could do.

You, need to break off; step aside, break out from their Prison of words and Run as fast as you can. That, will help you a lot.

Wait a minute, dear, re-read the previous paragraph. Again. Again… Again. Are you done? Alright, let’s continue.

Furthermore, feeling comfortable in this kind of situation, for me, is not a good idea. If you care to hear the words they have to say so that you won’t go contrary to their feelings; to avoid being seen as a contradictor, then forget about the future you are dreaming of. Here, i mean, a justifiable and trustworthy future. Don’t quote me wrong!

You cannot serve two masters at the same time – to listen to the past and future – you either follow the former or later. Whichever you take, the consequences are all yours to bear.

When an individual moves forward without looking back, he gets foresight and insight on how to overcome the stumbling block on his way. But when he looks back and still intend to go forward he is Confused;he or she doesn’t know what he wants and where he wants to go.

In this journey, looking back is only permitted if you wish to count your blessings and to name them one by one, so that you will realise that ‘you have come this far to go back’.

Stop listening to the negative words hovering in your area. You are way more and better than that. Trust me. I am, too.

Nobody is above mistake. You walked the wrong path, you made the mistake, you failed and you loosed is not the end of the world. There is still hope, a space,a road you can still walk on that will take you home. Hope on it, Faith in it, you are still alive.

Keep going, the future is better. Stop presuming that the things said to you is the end of your journey. You still have the world to change, a family to love, friends to spend time with, and places to go.

Success, that lovely thing everybody wants, don’t just fall off from the sky. It hangs up there waiting for someone that has the mind to come and get it. It won’t fall if you don’t take the risk. It won’t fear you, if you don’t grab the courage. It will be there looking at you the same way you’re looking at it except you act, except you make a move that will change your life for ever.

And mind you,you can not keep on listening to the negative words and still want to jump.You will just be wanting to commit suicide. A good time suicide.

The decision to stay happy and remain happy is in your hands. If your heart beats for the future I see no reason why your body should beat for the past.

Shalom!
