WHATS THE RUSH?WHERE ARE YOU COMING FROM AND WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
My life seems slow?awwww am very sorry for you.honestly,before i sympathize with you,let me ask you this question.please with all due respect is there any thing you have learnt so far from this slowness in all aspect of your life?
You cant say no?especially when you have principles or morals.
Morally in my local dialect,there is a saying that “when god takes his stone,he doesn’t throw it fast”
So tell me in the comment section if you have not learnt any thing at all from this slowness?
Let me tell you mine:
My mom will say,you are growing so what your plans about marriage and i go like don’t worry in his own time.then she will start comparing Auntie Mary’s daughter who is married and I remind her of Auntie Afia’s daughter who rush into marriage and went mad after a year of emotional,verbal and domestic abuse.
I can go on and on.
My dreams of becoming a nurse was shattered after long years of applying.
Everything of my dreams practically collapse right before my eyes and many more .
But through it all,i have learnt to trust the process and embrace it.
“FOR EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON,A TIME FOR EVERY MATTER UNDER THE HEAVENS.
A TIME TO BE BORN AND A TIME TO DYE.
A TIME TO PLANT AND A TIME TO PLUG OFF WHAT YOU HAVE PLANT.
A TIME TO KILL AND A TIME TO HEAL.
A TIME TO BREAKDOWN AND A TIME TO BUILD UP.
A TIME TO WEEP AND A TIME TO LAUGH.
A TIME TO MOURN AND A TIME TO LAUGH.
A TIME TO THROW AWAY STONE AND A TIME TO GATHER STONES TOGETHER.
A TIME TO EMBRACE AND A TIME TO REFRAIN FROM EMBRACING.
SO WHAT THE BIG QUESTION HERE?
WHATS THE RUSH?
I wish I can say this or write this article again when I have achieve my ambition as a blogger,TV Producer/Director but I have not gotten even close to what my mortal intelligence want my handwork to achieve.
Can I say,am having a slow life like what you saying or going through?
Most often than not,we go like,
God what is happening to me,my friends are getting married,all my classmate have accomplish our childhood dreams of becoming a nurse and married.I have tried nursing application for fifteen times in six years.
The people I sat in the same class are driving big cars and am always getting cold from smelling ampit of Trotro mate,honestly some Trotro mate e realy have to do something about their smell, anyway .
I can use my life as an example,we are three girls,my younger once have two kids each when I was still a virgin.
I was a nanny taking care of others kids at the stage in my life when I was suppose to start taking my life to the next level.
Do you still thing your life is slower than someones?pulse and listen,go round observe and ask.You wil be marveled.
What is the rush darling?
Simply embrace the process.
A twenty four years old friend shared his emotional experience with me days back and that actually inspires me to write this article.I was very thankful to God for two reasons when he told his story,he said KUKS,I have made a very big mistake in my life and I don’t regret it.First positive effect of mistakes,I wanted a car and my brother advised me not to buy because he will buy me a car in good time,but being an entrepreneur and having money coming into my account,I ask myself what the heck?why should I wait for my family to buy me a car in their own God knows when.
So fast forward,he deposited money for a car and in few weeks,the car thought him a great lesson.Did he even learn enough lesson?he allowed himself again to be duped again in a car that barely cost 40% less than the amount of the car.
The car never moved in a day without a fault, not forgetting that,his money got locked in the first deal and again the second deal. kuks i have literally loan a lot of money to my friends that they have not even paid and now am stranded.
One lesson he told me he has learnt is that,he nearly had an accident with the second car and had to trek to his destination to borrow money from a good friend of his and all his friend could do for him is to buy him club and meat.He said MAN i don’t need this,all i need is some money to tow my car from the roadside to the owners. but guess what his friend said,I DON’T HAVE MONEY NOW.
So i ask him,why were you rushing to have all that?he said I THOUGHT I NEEDED A CAR.
One good reason to me base on this story that made me happy is that he is just young and in such cases,it better you face such things at a young age to learn before it too late for you.so I advised him to thank God and not to be sad.
Another observation he made himself was that, you see your love ones when you are broke and depressed.this is a guy who actually like high grade girls but when he encounter this,no high grader was available to help than his poor junior high school ex girl friend.
SO AM ASKING AGAIN,WHATS THE RUSH?
I have practically been delayed in literally everything in my life,but honestly that what my physical skull thinks but i promise you,you have no idea of how i have matured in all aspect,if not for anything,my five years celibate life has thought me what book or no man can ever make me understand and believe in.
I might not know which part of your life you are facing slowness or stagnation,but there is one thing i know for sure.”ITS ALL PART OF GODS PLAN’
How will i inspire you today with this article if i had not gone through and embrace all the slowness,stagnation,disappointment and betrayal.
STEADFAST IN WHATEVER YOU BELIEVE IN AND TRUST THE JOURNEY. PEACE OUT.
Am friendly,let get to know each other.
