Hello lovelies, welcome to yet another MAGIC MONDAY. For me, Mondays come with a challenge, a sense of responsibility, a feeling to make a change and something that just makes me feel to need to kick ass and that’s the reason why I’m writing this.
The past few weeks have been clouded with a form of discontent feeling for me. I wake up feeling as though i have nothing going for myself, as though I’m just wasting my youth, as though I’m not happy, as though I can’t get the things I want because I’m just unlucky. I find myself beating myself so hard for not achieving alot of the goals I set for myself, I see myself praying to God to place me where I’m supposed to be and to take me to where I want to be, I want to start living my dreams and at some point I failed to understand that it’s one step at a time, there’s no need to rush, what matters is planning and enough planning and execution.
At some point in your life, you would have to do a lot of planning. At some point in our lives we would have to stop running and learn to start walking. It’s not how fast you get to your desired destination, it’s how well. When you move fast, you move without taking corrections, you move without watching the side blocks but when you walk, you walk with the mistakes and the corrections, you make each step better because you’ve learnt from previous steps. When you run, until you get to your destination you can’t see your mistakes, what bitter moment it would be for you to go back after arriving at your destination to correct the mistakes you made in your way.
Take a look at Oprah Winfrey, Linda Ikeji, Laura Ikeji, even your local church wasn’t built in a day or in months, it took a rough time for all these figures to be who they are today. Jackie Aina did make up for years before becoming a pro, suffered from a divorce and used YouTube as her voice, today make-up brands and women empowerment organisations are in search for her. You too can be where you want if you can just wait and enjoy the process of working hard and being patient.
So if you feel you’re not where you should be, take your time, walk one step at a time, plan, take corrections, pray to God and things would fall into place. Whatever comes easy won’t last and what lasts won’t come easy.
