Hey people. So malaria got me today but I’m good now. Even malaria can’t hold me down 😉
Any way, I had enough time to think today and I kept reflecting on the mistakes I’ve made this year. The wrong steps I’ve taken and how I even made those mistakes.
I almost counted them as life lessons but to be honest, they are mistakes I could have avoided, easily, so it just boils down to when we as humans decide to apply that common sense we are supposed to have. LOL.
I mean, let’s face it, most of the things we beat ourselves over are things we knew in our hearts that we probably shouldn’t have done but yes we are humans and we get easily carried away either with matters of the heart or just physical things.
Like we discussed in the youth chapel on Sunday (one of the things I thought about), we are all aware of the two parts our hearts are divided in; The part that knows very well the right thing to do and The part that gives concessions to what we ought not to do. The problem I personally have is going with the other part, the part that yields to the ‘Do not Do’. I’m guessing I’m not alone on this one.
So I’m just on my bed, making promises never to do anything without thoroughly thinking it through. Is that going to work? I don’t know but I would certainly try. I have started cultivating the habit of asking enough questions before jumping into anything. Some of us just believe that ‘what you don’t know won’t kill you’ but to be honest, we are just scared of knowing because once we know then we are faced with the responsibility of making a choice, those choices that we want to elude so that we can hide under the cover of ignorance.
Ignorance is not bliss, it’s more like the basis of disaster because whether you like it or not, things would happen, of course they would, and you would still have to make that dreaded choice but this time it would be accompanied with greater consequences that you probably can’t handle and it would wreck you.
I hope we all have the courage to make choices that won’t hurt us in the long run and to stick by these choices no matter how tempting the other side is, no matter how coldstone-like it can be (no don’t lecture me about oreo overload or chocolate hazel, I cannot let it go 😒) LOL.
Three promises I’ve made:
1) I shall not rush. Things happen in their own time. I would work towards it and keep my goal in mind. I won’t try to cut corners.
2) I shall ask questions. Be fully knowledgeable about whatever I want to get myself into. It’s better to turn away than have regrets.
3) I shall not give up. Giving up is not an option. Never. I won’t give up on Love, on Life and most importantly, I won’t give up on God.
The weekend is close, don’t forget to surf the blog for easy style ideas. So sad I’m missing the Lagos Fashion and Design Week though, work has me hooked but I have good friends who would get me pictures (I hope ☺️).
If you’re turning up this weekend say Ayyyyeee and if you’re not say Ayyyyeee too 🙋🏽🙋🏽 LOL. Have a fab weekend guys.
LoveandKisses from TANG.
