“you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”- Mae West
Everybody wants a perfect ending but most don’t work towards building it, some would sit back and dream all day like i don’t get waiting for a miracle or what? i mean please what’s this world turning to actually, this generation is not even helping matters. there are so many people out there the teenagers and youths especially with potentials and dreams but just too lazy to work it or most times deceived by the things of this world like partying, drinking amongst others pretending and living carelessly with the mentality that all things would be just as planned or imagined.
Making mistakes in life is one of the things that make life what it is but then its a shame on your part if you don’t work towards correcting your mistake or even letting it bring you down, remember mistakes are proves that you are trying its not the final say. Just because you tried changing but them it didn’t work doesn’t mean you should stop trying, Most people fail to realise that life is a gift and each day of ones life should be used wisely; don’t just sit there drinking and regretting the things you have done or fantasising about what you want when you can work for.
i always tell people to “Get a life” and by this i mean have a plan and vision for your life, don’t just be in life also make life, live life and maximise life. This life is what you make it and the truth is a life without a vision, plan and focus is worthless and not appreciated.
I am not a fan of making new year resolutions because i believe that everyday is an opportunity to change why wait for a new year before you make things right; but right now i think i would admonish you all to make the very best of this short period before the new year begins and set things right, make note of the things you want to drop back in this year it might be habits, friends, you know what you want to change and drop to make your life better; Like are you not tired of just being the same old you, doing the same thing over and over again each year, hanging out with the same set of people that are not helping you in any way, drinking or smoking trust me you really have to drop these, you know these things; you don’t have to continue with them like really get a life and by this i mean build one not dream one or regret one, I know these things look very easy to do until you start but then one key is to never give up and be determined.
The good thing about life is that it always give you an opportunity to set things right no matter how old you are or how far you have gone, why don’t you take this opportunity and set things right starting afresh this coming year.
Its so much ok to fantasise and dream but if care is not taken most people would live their lives dreaming for what they would never have not because they couldn’t have it but because they didn’t work for it. Always remember ” it does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live”- J.K Rowling
GET A LIFE that’s all i have to say….
[OLARONKE ENITAN ARIYIBI]
Oh gracious lord,
Lingering we come
Awaiting your mercy
Render help unto your people
Our eyes are on you lord;
Near your altar we offer our
Kines as a sacrifice to you
Early in the morning.
Eagerly and patiently waiting for your help
Nibbling in pain,
In agony we cry asking
Thou plague when will thou end?
A question wondering in our hearts;
Nearer lord, nearer we long for your hand.
Arise and have mercy lord; let your
Rain fall down and wash away our tears
In pain and agony oh
Yes lord, we still trust in you
In your infinite mercy, hear us lord
Believe in your word you said, and that we did
In your infinite mercy, save us lord.
Finally back to school!!! How happy can I be like three months at home was just like forever. Seeing my friends again, jisting about the break and all am sure you totally understand these stuff.
As early as this semester began like I have learned so much lessons and I just feel I should share. Ok like am in this most crucial level (300) and you know everyone is trying to set things right and it’s so clear to me now that I have been doing things wrong because I wanted to please everyone I didn’t want a situation where I would be called a sly and stuff but now I totally realize that the key to failure is trying to please everyone and gush trust me I made up my mind that I am just going to do me and stuff and trust me it’s working so well, I don’t have to think about others and their selfish comments or what they would say. The fact will always remain like not everyone is going to like you and your decisions but the important is that not everyone matters so just do you, be you, love for you.
Again I want to remind all the students out there that you can’t do anything without God like be you a Christian or a Muslim you have to involve God in your studies and reading or else you will be frustrated and that won’t be too good. I made up my mind to put God first in all I do, my readings, eating, talking and even sleeping and am seeing wonderful results.
So I will just encourage everyone to just be real and by that I mean be yourself no matter what it worked for me so why won’t it work for you. Try it out even if you are working just be yourself and involve your God in all you do you will be surprised at the results.
#real #God #inspiration
More people would learn from their mistakes if they weren’t so busy denying them.
Psalms 37:5 “Commit everything you do to the lord. Trust him and he will help you.”
God challenges you to obey his word, live the way he has commanded, do your best and leave the rest for him to handle.
Deuteronomy 6:5 “You must love the lord your God with all your heart,all your soul,all your strength”
God challenges you to examine your heart and make sure he has taken first place in your life.
John 14:15 “(Jesus said) if you love me obey my commandments.”
God challenges you to develop a relationship with him obeying everyone of his commands.
I stumbled on this popular quote people always say and decided to think deep about it;
“if you love someone let them go if they really love you they will come back”
Let’s look at this like really is that true. Pushing away someone will it really bring them back or will it just push the person away forever?
There is this quote that explains it all:
“Pushing away doesn’t cause things to come together, all it causes is for things to be pushed away”
I guess that’s the mistake most people make, thinking if you just push this person away for sometime maybe they will come back or whatever. Truly it might work but in some cases the person might never return, have you forgotten we are humans and we think differently; what you are thinking about might not be what the other person is thinking about, he might be taking it differently and thinking you are ignoring him or something and that can lead to the loss of a relationship or friendship.
In my own advice I won’t say one should not do it but be careful how long you push away and the way you behave in that period not to pass the wrong message because if you do it might lead to regret. Just be careful how you do it.
This is what you shall do: love the earth and sun, and animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence towards the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown, or to any man or number of men; go freely with the powerful uneducated persons, and with the young, and mothers, of families: read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life: re-examine all you have been told at school or church, or in any books, and dismiss whatever insults your soul.
