A Renewed Sense of Purpose

There are just about a few things that are as frustrating as having so much to do but little time. You see, this is not an issue even proper time management can solve because the issue didn’t come up because you didn’t manage your time properly, but because there is so much to do that time, no matter how properly managed, is just not enough. And this kind of problem, I have observed, usually arise when you find purpose- a purpose for your existence and your relationship with both your environment and the people in it.

I had the privilege of spending time discussing with one of my oldest friends, Joel Akingunola, recently, and in the course of the discussion, he shared Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard commencement speech with me; actually I started reading it on his phone but due to lack of sufficient time at the moment, I asked him to mail it to me so I could read it up. But because of one thing or the other, I couldn’t get back to reading it until I was with another friend and we were talking about ideas that could be profitable. The discussion then led to the area of goals and “where do you see yourself in…?” Continue reading “A Renewed Sense of Purpose”

Memories Never Fade…

We never really move away from an old life, we just suppress it to entertain and make space for the new one. Sometimes, the new becomes so comfortable that we begin to forget what the old life looks and feels like; we suppress it into oblivion.

But the truly interesting part is that, we never truly forget because we never really moved on in the first place.

Why? Continue reading “Memories Never Fade…”

Selfish

The one constant thing I’ve always cared about is myself. In any situation I find myself, anywhere, any time, the one thing I think about is how I can leave a better me or gain from whatever situation I am….or at least, even if I can’t gain, I should be able to leave without losing. That sounds selfish, I know. In fact, very selfish, I know too.
But the thing is, if I don’t care about myself and becoming better and gaining or in the least break even, who else will?

Sincerely, Life

Life is a mystery no one can fully understand. I’ve come to learn, a lesson not easily learnt, that life is the best teacher…yes, life! No one teaches a better lesson than life.. On faith, on morals, on love, even when you are not ready to learn, she teaches still, till you reach that stage when you understand why…or other times when you never know.

Self-Love

Somewhere along life’s way you’ll meet someone who will change the way you’ve seen life, who’ll give life a new meaning and make you feel like you’ve been living in a dream all these years. you’ll meet someone who will wake you up and make you feel  love. Someone who will rock your whole world and make you feel alive. Along life’s way, when you feel
like nothing else could happen that would excite you, that nothing else could interest you, that where you are now, if it ever gets better, it’s because you got enough wealth to see you through life, and that happiness everyone keeps yapping about is not what they say it is…

Solace

Disappointments and let downs, pains, storms, battles… I’ve come to learn, are part of life. Someone or something will bring you down once in a while. Life is not a bed of roses, not filled with goodies all year round… I mean, everyday can’t be Christmas and therefore, disappointments should be seen as part of life, part of becoming who you are meant to be, a section of a bigger picture. See disappointments as stepping stones, not obstacles. Continue reading “Solace”

Silence

There is a kind of quiet that unnerves you. When you ask a question out loud and demand a response but none seems to be forthcoming, or when you require an assistance but the other end seems to be just dead. That silence, that kind of quiet fazes you, makes you anxious and possibly perturbed. Or perhaps, you ask yourself, “what  next?”, “what do I do now” or “where do I go from here. And you look to the universe to give a sign…just anything to assure you that you’re not lost, that you’re not without purpose, but it seems like the universe and all its resources turns it back to you, and there is no response.
