Midweek Fix: Dreaming



Some things get old.


Matter what we do, they grow old and die. Sometimes, that’s the intent.


But in this case – no matter how many times we hear it, it remains true.








The best writers are yet to write books. Somewhere in a bank somewhere, some cashier looks up at the screen everytime an Asa video comes up and says ‘that was me in the university’.


Well. What happened?


Life happened, abi? I understand – and that’s why you’re in a bank somewhere doing your daily thing. And that’s cool.


What is confusing is why do you complain about the life you chose? Did someone hold a gun to your head? Even if they did – complaining about it won’t change it.


Life; the whole of living is a risk. Fear grounds us. People dare to do daily – and that’s why we have Facebook. Twitter. Whatsapp. WordPress. Mr. Biggs. Chicken Republic. Ice Cream. Smartphones. Jeans. And millions of tiny things that come together to make life fun.


We’re more powerful than we realize. It’s too easy to get sidetracked in today’s world!


But if you have a plan. If there’s something you see so much of it keeps you awake nights, stop being so scared.


Do it. ‘No time to check time’. 2014 is as good as gone.


You may not agree – but come and read this again in a few months!


Stop dulling. Start believing.


Do it. Do it. Do it.

    This is so on point!
    It calls to mind: ‘Whatever your hands find to do, do it wholeheartedly’. And like Tony Rapu will say, Shut Up & Move On(SUMO).
    Thank you for sharing.
