I dashed straight to the room to freshen up because there was this program I wanted to watch n Fox TV by 7pm. Finally, I got to the living room and there was my younger brother with his feet crossed on the table and a drink by his side; he was watching El-Classico. “Oya give me remote oh, I want to watch my program.” I said stretching out my hand towards him. ‘But I am watching match na.’ He replied without throwing a single glance at me. Pissed, I tried collecting the remote from him forcefully but the whole matter got escalated instead as he was determined to not skipping his match for anything. It finally got to my mum who came to settle the war. I explained to her and she drew closer to me with her hand on my shoulder (I wonder how that works self…) “But he was watching his match first na, so just allow him for today. Some other time” [Case close].
To a very large extent (like 99%), who gets there first is more likely to be the one that stays there throughout. The same theory applies to our day: As a wise man puts it “What you wake up to determines largely how your day will be; you wake up angry, the possibility that you will be angry for most of that day is high. The same for being happy.” So I want you to wake up to this:
You are beautiful [and handsome too], you are the best creature of creation; His masterpiece. He calls you the apple of His eyes So you are not going to be special, you are already special; important and relevant. You have embedded in you abilities that can transform the world, wisdom that can marvel the world, a smile that can melt any mountain and strength that can withstand and overcome any circumstance. You stand the chance to weather any storm, conquer any battle, compete with anybody, you have within you the seed of greatness. You are blessed and highly favoured.
Have a blissful day ahead and be happy always. Cheers!
