Two days ago, a good friend sent me an audio note which was an interview with a man in his sixties, the man mentioned 10 things which one would regret at age 60. I started playing the voice note, and because i was busy working, i started jotting down the points as he mentioned them, after listening to all; i just had to share with you all. Here it goes:
Not making the most of your time – I am doing my best to not be guilty of this one
Not saving or investing enough – i am working on this as well
Not spending more time with family – this is so important i have changed my routine to suit my family
I came across this animation months back and I was glued.
I did again today and as before, I’m thinking large screen, a badass story line because Shango is awesome indeed, popcorns without sugar/salt and what else….
I want to see this on a large screen. Who wants to partner with me on this project?
Its way past the time we should be promoting works of arts that are originally African. I love Walt Disney, don’t get me wrong..but nothing beats bringing it home.
So if you or anyone you know, knows Walt Disney, kindly send them to me for a partnership on this Project. I don’t need to worry about whether this will be a block buster or not, I only need you to understand, nothing beats the 401 Orishas associated with the Yoruba Tradition.
Just ask Susanne Wenger; God bless her soul, and a whole lot of other…
There I was, in my apartment, I had stayed away for almost two months, believing by the time I got back, I did be over the fear of our house being burglarized. Staying away didn’t work because I stayed up all night my first day looking at my door.
By 7am, the sky was bright, I felt better and slept for about one hour before getting on with work. Came another night, I was exhausted from a long day, finally got to sleep around 6p.m., I doubt I slept long before I flew up seeing it was dark. I thought, oh my, another bout of restlessness:'(:'(.
I ended up leaving my apartment around 10pm for a friend’s apartment who offered me their couch. Oh my, I was grateful. My friend and the whole family were super kind and warm. Imagine as a sibling waking up to find an homeless person had broken into your apartment and taken over your couch.😂😂. All the while I still felt a little down worrying about what I couldn’t help.
Next day I headed out to town to meet up with a friend who was in town and I hadn’t seen for 6years. On my way back, I thought to myself, why not go see a Kevin Hart Movie, that should boost my mood further.
So I did, I watched Central Intelligence..oh my, that’s a side of #TheRock I hadn’t seen, dude was hilarious. And #KevinHart did what he do best, make bird calls…kakakakoo🐓🐔🐓🐔🐔🐔🐓🐔🐓🐔😁😁😁😂.
That movie gave me another perspective to look at life, how ones life could switch from good to bad or bad to good in an instant, how not to ever bother when people remind you of how you used to always have the best ideas, and still do, evenwhen it looks like they are doing better than you.
Be focused on you and where you are headed.😍 Same day while surfing through facebook memories I came across this:
Same day, I called a friend who works around where I was, and even though he was headed out already and there was traffic, my awesome friend came back and gave me a big hug, reminding me of the fact that everything was going to be just fine. Next day, I switched rooms in my apartment. Perhaps that would help me overcome the fear. Yet to try it out.
A big Shout out to all the friends who stick by each other, who go out of their way to hold each other up. Can I hear a whoop whoop 😍👍.
The weekend was better and great. I met with two beautiful moms who made my transition into the weekend a good one.
I had to postpone a training but the responses to my postponement wasn’t so terrible. I also got myself another power bank/Bluetooth speaker/torchlight to replace the stolen one, this is way cooler.
I can boogie on the move without my headphones, did I mention it has an inbuilt omnidirectional microphone.😎
I also got a beautiful comment from a friend in the WordPress community. The thought that I make someone feel better with my posts half way round the world, is an inspiring one.
A big shout out to all the good people out there spreading love and happiness in our troll-filled world. Sometimes, a change is perspective and a switch in routine might be what we need to paint a great picture, or overcome that fear & sadness. Or in my case, a visit to a cinema😍😍.
I always say its okay to feel down occasionally, never let the feeling stay for long in your heart, it will eat you up till you can see no more.
Earlier these morning, a topic was started in a group I belong to on how crazy the world is today, and how rampant evil is spreading, and how we should embrace Jesus because the end time is here. My response to that was this and I would like to share here.
I think its pretty obvious that the world has gone crazy. Note that I didn’t say ‘is’. The real question is what are you going to do about it? Pardon me if am not a sucker for any religion. One thing I do believe in is this, I was created by definitely a God whose awesomeness I can’t begin to describe, and am pretty sure the last thing he would want me to do is become scared and paranoid at our crazy world, but think about ways I can bring a positive change to my immediate environment and the world at large, give someone a reason to smile and think of ways to alleviate the suffering of the poor man, by that I mean people who are actually helpless and hopeless, not the lazy person who has opportunities but won’t use them.
I will not preach to another to go to church or mosque or temple more or go on their knees and start confessing their love for God (whoever that is to them in various religions), I’m not even worthy to say I love God, but am pretty sure he loves me unconditionally. (Joseph Prince). That being said, love yourself, love your neighbor. Don’t be greedy, selfish, share…share..share..knowledge sharing is power. Stop hoarding…Hehehe…knowledge is indeed empty except it leads to love (Pope Francis). Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.(Buddha quote).
You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection (Buddha). Your CHARACTER matters more than your religion, just my opinion, you don’t have to agree, I tolerate yours, do same with mine.
Yorubas say ‘Iwa rere ni eso eniyan – good character is the beauty of a person.
All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark. (Swami Vivekananda). Ifa likewise asks us to practice being an Omoluabi (a person with a good, gentle and humble character), that exhibits iwapele (patience), iteriba (respect) and inurere (good intention).
These are food for thoughts for us to ponder on and practice. #justmytwocents on this crazy world we live in.
