GREATFUL FOR THE NEW YEAR

What else am I not grateful for?
For the house I didn't build?
For the contract I couldn't get?
For the big job I didn't secure?
For the Luxury wedding I couldn't achieve?...
For the Caribbean Honeymoon I couldn't afford?
For the first class I couldn't fly?
For the exclusive choice cars I couldn't buy?
For the piece of Land I couldn't obtain?
For the awards I couldn't win?
For the certificates I couldn't secure?
For the friendships I lost?
For the promotion I couldn't get?
for the...for the...for the...for the... for the...for the...for the...for the...I can't seem to remember what else I am not grateful for.
But come o!.....
Is there anything I am grateful for in 2014?
What of you?
Is there anything you are thankful for in 2014?
Let me count.....
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
For the Life I have.
God gave me life 12 months in 2014.
God gave me life for an average of 30 days in every month in 2014
God gave me life for 52 weeks in 2014.
God gave me life for 4 weeks in every month in 2014.
God gave me life for 24 hours in everyday in every week in every month in 2014.

God just gave me life!
You call LIFE JUST?????

Some built new houses but couldn't live in it!
Some got contracts but didn't make a profit!
Some got big jobs and the company closed down the next month!
Some luxury weddings didn't last one month of marriage!
Some crashed on their way to Honeymoon in the Caribbean!
Some flew first class and didn't enjoy the flight!
Some had career destroying accidents in their new exclusive choice cars!
Some were duped in trying to acquire a piece of land!
Some perished on their way to obtain an award and didn't see the award!
Some certificates disqualified qualified persons in securing a position!
Some friendships led to the betrayal of trusted friends!
Some promotions came with some frustrations.

And...some got all above and didn't get LIFE to enjoy it!!!
My friend, you have life, you have hope, you have a better 2015 ahead!
You have everything to be grateful for in 2014!!!

SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!!
Just type "God I am grateful"!
I am not asking you to tell others to do the same. Just share!!!

HOW THEY ALMOST WASTED MY LIFE IN LAGOS

This thing called life. On this edition of Everyday People I am talking about the story of a young life that would have been carelessly truncated. But God saved his Unique Life. Yes! This Life is Unique! It is Unique because of you. There is no other you. No where in this whole life. Yes Uniqueness. That’s what I am talking about? What makes a life unique is what the individual is. What attracts people or a market to you is that niche that distinguishes you from others. What is your unique selling point (USP)? There must be something you should be known for. I don’t know what it is but you have to think about it and create that uniqueness for yourself. What are you ready to be known for? What did Jesus die for? What did the apostles of old die for? What did Martin Luther die for? What did Ghandi die for? What did Idahosa die for? What is Adeboye living for? What does Oyedepo exist for? What is Kumuyi preaching for? The list is endless. What is Dr. Omalu sacrificing for

WHEN WAHALA JAM GBESE! Final Episode!

My People for this Community! How una dey? Last week we started a story on Everyday People and we promised to finish the story this week.  In continuation of the story, below are the extracts from episode one: “I am saying WHEN WAHALA JAM GBESE NA PALAVA E GO GET! The problem became so much that even the neighbors became so uncomfortable with the whole arrangement. This trouble is worst anytime the Man and his wife made love in the night. Our aunty R will always pick a quarrel with the wife of the house. The most painful part is that this man will just disappear leaving the two women to dig it out with themselves. If you were in the shoes of this wife what would you do? Will you allow aunty R to squat with your family in the first instance? Will you ask your husband to drive his sister away? Will you fight your sister-in-law out of the house? Will you start a prayer program for aunty R? Will, you just allow everything to pass and hope for #BetterDaysAhead?”

FALLEN

Our Land was pure. The grass was green. Our Water was clean. The leaves could cure. We drank from the stream With leaves bridged to the rock as cups. As we laved our body under the heavy drops, Our body needed no cream. We were at peace The Palm wine tasted like honey. The village square was our group chat. Words were strong and laughter from the heart. Love was not bought with money. Our Farms yielded with interest. We had enough to eat and ship. Our eyes are closed when we sleep. We worked, worked and had our rest. We were not at war Our Merchants traveled South, West and North. With products of trade for exchange of coins. Women were married not just for groins. Deals were made, no one was fought. Then came the experts with hats and guns. They took our lands and made us Roomers. They deceived our neighbors and made us brothers. Our rights were taken and we became their puns. We were just neighbours They joined No
