Times and times without number have I come across self disrupted, downward, discouraged, dismayed, downcast-ed dispirited, daunted, pessimistic, glum, sulky, gloomy and bummed out individuals. WOW! It irritates the living day light out of me living only the night-light. You know why? You really want to know why? It’s because brothers and sisters! you are not the first! For all I care there is almost 7 billion humans presently leaving in this world and this is excluding the ones chilling six feet below. Do you really think your case is the worse; do you really think you are the first one to have lost a job; do u really think you are the ugliest person on earth; do you really think you are the dumbest individual; you must be thinking you are the first one to have failed a course or exam or module or whatever; do you really think you are the poorest (referring to myself); are you the first one to have been born in an undeveloped country in other words slum in other words ghetto in other words bush, people have been dying (may their soul rest in peace) but trust me you are not the first person to have lost a close one (just lost one myself); you are not the first and trust me wont be the last.
I don’t know about you but when I tasted beer and wine some time ago, those things tasted nasty (agree or disagree) but I get people telling me it taste good and they somehow manage to down the drink; Coffee, with no sugar; it doesn’t taste good either even with sugar but again I have mates who haven’t started their day if they haven’t taken a cup of coffee, we take grape fruits I am sure too. These my friends is life. It’s sometimes bitter and don’t taste so good but somehow we have to gulp it down.
In the sport of athletics precisely huddling, athletes don’t run around the huddles, they have to go over them no matter how high or low. Same applies to life, the obstacles are placed there for us to go over them, if not then why live? I for one is part of the bunch of people who sometimes think that life sucks, life is unfair, life is a b***h, life is cruel, life is bla bla bla. Truth of the matter is nobody has had it all good, fun, smooth and easy all the way. I recently read an article on CNN and it pointed out how chief executives of big companies happen to experience a dozen of different emotions in a day across their work and home some which are fear, disappointment, loneliness, anger, frustration, confusion and so on. Even the president of the United state of America isn’t having it all sweet and don’t let me get started on celebrities.
Dear friends, for some reasons we have been placed not in Mars or Jupiter but on Earth for a particular reason. These obstacles are just distractions; its alright to fall but rise again, its alright to cry but wipe out your tears and smile again, its alright to fail but rewrite and take note of your mistakes, its alright to miss but don’t forget to re-target and finally its alright to hit rock bottom because except u want to remain there, u can only go upward.
