I give myself away!

This is a line from one the songs on my playlist in this season “I give myself away'” by William Mcdowell.

It’s been a long day. My heart is filled with thanks to the Almighty God.

I found this quote on my new found blogger site  Beholding Him Ministries.

Have you given Him, all of you?

Excuse me Lord, You have to wait! Part 1.

This is the part 1 of the series,my attempt at writing fiction stories…seriously!

It’s Saturday morning, the ¬†weather is fresh and cool.¬†Susan is wild awake as usual it has become a daily ritual,to wake up at this time of the morning to kiss the day.

This morning is quite different as she was jolted out her sleep by a funny dream she made her way quickly to the bathroom,as she felt the urge to empty her bowels,maybe that was what woke her from that funny dream.

Coming out of the bathroom, to climb back to bed, she heard movement coming from the next room, “at this time of the morning”, she exclaimed ! she knew that her children were already awake too.

‘You children are awake, what are you doing up at this time of the day?

C’mon go back to bed! ¬†she shouted at them as she opened the door from her room.

Mummy, there is no school today,” Tade replied

‘We would clean the house and do our chores ,mummy please go back to bed.

I should go back to bed so that you  can stay glued to the TV all morning right?

Get back into your room right now! that is an instruction, not a suggestion, Immediately the boys ran back to their room. More

My big fat 600 lbs.. Facing your fears.

It’s Thursday evening night I am up late, waiting for my significant other to come home from his usual Thursday routine. The boys are already in bed, and right about now I’m about to have me some ‘OMG ‘I sat down to watch some TLC Channel. I usually don’t watch this ¬†particular channel all the time,tonight I’m indulging me!

As I sat to watch a new episode of¬†“My Big fat 600 lbs”, where are they Now? This particular episode showcased two obese women struggling with their weight and their journey to regain their lives back.

I saw how these two women faced with same life threatening obesity, responded to the situations  culminating in their individual end -results.

The two of them went through the rigors and pains of surgery,this documentary was actually to show what became of them one year after the surgical operation.

After watching It got me thinking about my own ‘Big Fat 600 lbs’ which may not necessarily be about physical fatness,but something else, some habits or lifestyle that I may be struggling with.

We are the sum total of the decisions we make per time at every given stage in our lives.

In the Morning…

 

Ain’t no need to worry

what the night’s gonna bring,

It will be all over

In the morning.

This is my encouragement to you out there my friend,

You may not know how, you may not understand it all

Go on ahead and sleep over it,

It will be all over in the morning

Because the sun will shine anew,

It will be a breath of fresh air,

The dark sky will give way

To a sparkling bright cloud

It will all over in the morning.

iSucceed…For the love of Mentors and Life coaches.

There is a common African proverbs,

If you want to go fast, go alone

If you want to go far, go in a company.

This proverbs reiterate the importance of working together with other people in order to realize and achieve your objectives in life.  I remember my growing days as a young child, how my father always encouraged me to keep striving to be a better person. He was very instrumental to my passion for reading books, I believe he was a great influence to the kind of books I still read up till date.

Behind every success in life, stands a mentor,someone who lovingly tells us when we are drifting away from the path, who also gives a pat in the back when we do right.  They are found everywhere.

Mentors can be found at home,school,church,sport fields, and in business. My father was my first mentor in the home, I remember when I will come back from school, despite the fact that I was on the top 3 list of exceptional students in my class, and in sport activities ,I felt like a nobody because of my size. I was the ‘shortest’ in my class, that gave me a kind of complex that I struggled with even in my adult years. My Dad was always there to speak boldness and confidence into me.

I believe because of my ‘petiteness’, if there’s word like, and brilliance I could easily draw attention to myself, and as such found people who wanted to help me get out of my ‘complex’ issues and maximize the potentials they saw in me. I found mentors and coaches in my teachers also. I could easily walk up to them and ask questions, receive guidance on different topics from academia to peer pressure stuffs. More

The business of Womanhood is a heavy burden.-Tsitsi Dangarembga

A heavy Burden made light through her gracefulness.

A heavy burden made made light through her tenderness.

The Brick Walls Are There For A Reason.

For a number of times in my life I have clawed and scratched at quite a lot of things ¬†every step of the way as many of us do. Through all the obstacles and challenges I have faced and still do face, I realize that there is no such thing as an ‘overnight success’.

While in search of answers here and there, looking for the right tools to live that successful life, I discovered that invariably there are different definitions to the word ¬†‘success’.

The one definition I  have chosen to stick with is this;

Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal.

When you have a cause, a dream or a passion that’s worth every ounce of your blood and sweat, because that’s what you’ve decided to do….deliberately, then you are a success.

The pursuit of that worthy cause or dream however,does not come over night, it takes time and it involves process,which is a series of steps taken in order  to achieve a particular end. In taking steps to achieve these end, you come face to face with distractions, setbacks , brick-walls, to knock you off the course and discourage you.

I have been facing such brick walls since I started work on my new album project,and believe you me, I’m like Lord, what’s with all this challenges, it’s one thing or another. As you try to sort out one, another raises its ugly head!

brickwall

These brick walls have the potentials of turning your pursuit of success into a nightmare, but you just have to develop a thick skin and have a strong resolute, that no matter what may come your way, you will see yourself breasting the tape at the finish line.

Again this brick walls come in different variant, different shapes and sizes. One of such is when¬†someone is trying to hold you to’ ransom’ and they believe that they are doing you a favor, without them you can’t go further. I was confronted with that challenge recently.

As I ponder on, the circumstances surrounding the event, at first there was  an outburst in anger,stating clearly that I was not going to allow anybody hold me to ransom again, I am taking charge of my life,and I will dictate the pace with which I will go with all my enterprise,especially when you have been paid to do your job,and you are slacking in it. I will not hesitate to bid you farewell.

It is not always easy to let go,when you have built relationships with people over a period of time, at the same time you will be doing them a disservice if you fail to let them know that you can’t condone their behavioral pattern any longer. ‘Behavioral pattern’ -The person is always doing same thing over and over again. We like to play it safe but in the end we may never be able to break through those walls.

Safety is good -until it holds us back in our pursuit of life goals, worthy cause et all. This energetic blockage is a bit tricky when it involves people relationship. It hard to separate out what is a true sense of work ethics and friendship, you find yourself in that space of playing it ‘safe’ because you don’t want to be perceived as someone who is hard, but when it interferes with your life’s call- You had better get out of the ‘safe mode’ and be labeled whatever it is.

To move past this ‘safe mode’ I found that the fear of losing out crept in at first, but gradually as I became more thankful about the situation, I realize that If I don’t stand on my decision to relieve the person involve of his/her ‘position’ and find another alternative,I am not helping the relationship, and the person may think that the whole world revolves around them. More so, it affords me the opportunity to stand up for the things I believe, not allowing someone else to make my decisions for me.

There will always be brick walls in the journey of life and the road to success, its either you break through it, go over the wall to the others side, take the sides, or go underneath to the other side. Whichever way you choose-¬†‘SOMETHING’S GOT TO GIVE’ because the brick walls are there for a reason- To make you stronger,tougher as you hone your success story.

I am grateful for every brick wall I have had to face,and the ones still facing me.

This post is also in response to¬†Colline’s¬†gratitude challenge
