After being away from blogging for some months, distracted by world politics, the rant on Twitter street. The Trumps and the Hillarys. I was hoping my Timeline will breathe some air after the election. But No!
Everyday and every time something new happens and the trend. I am picking up lessons from everywhere I can. From books, to blogs and experiences.
I am struggling to dissipate the noise around me, I could not do away with all, squeezed the rest like lemonade and turned them to music.
As the curtains to 2017 were opened on that first day of January, I wondered if I start running now and fast, I might get tired and lose my strength while in my path to that which has been assigned to me this year. The declarations this year was powerful but I have to live by them by seeking first the Giver of all gifts.
What does the year hold for us beyond the recession, Trump’s victory, and bringing it home, Buhari’s indefinite medical leave. There seems to be so much distraction everywhere, the list is endless.
But we need to speak to ourselves more, have the real conversations on how to uplift and build our communities, most importantly being united.
In this world right now, make the most of every opportunity, be the best you can be. Don’t be too rigid with yourself and with others. Judge less, respect others, believe and never stop believing and take action.
I would not be going off anymore as my words would never suffer recession. And learning about business in the 21st century, chilling with a cup of strawberry tea with colleagues at the office. And my partner, Jide always teasing me with some bossy talk.
Yes, I am afraid of some things, but I will do it afraid. I will write afraid and I will speak afraid.
Plus today is Valentine’s Day.
