THE PARCEL

How do you react when you receive a parcel? Excited and eager to see what it is right? Now what happens before we finally see the real thing? We unwrapp, don't we? Of course we do! And we do it excitedly in spite of how difficult it could be. And when we can't do it ourselves, we ask for help right?

Some parcels are wrapped in such a way that, you'll need tools to unwrap and open. If you have ever received a parcel from my mom, you'll know how unwrapping a parcel can give you stress and probably get you depressed.

Some parcels are also fragile and need to be opened with care
Some parcels also have very simple wrappings with no wahala.

Most often, before something good and worth having comes our way, we go through a lot of hardships and challenges. Some are very depressing, some are not so difficult, while still, others can make you nearly hopeless.

It is quite sad that during the difficult moments, we're hardly able to keep up the excitement. There's a common saying that we are all familiar with "nothing good comes easy".

God gives us parcels that we have to unwrap to see what blessing is hidden that will be to our benefit. These parcels come in various forms such as; business ideas, discovered talents, job opportunities, travel opportunities and many others.

In order to get these parcels unwrapped, we need to go through the process of removing celotapes, cutting wrappers, opening boxes and all the things we do in the process of unwrapping the gift.
This can be equated to the challenges and hardships we go through to actualize our dreams and to work out our ideas of setting up a business, writing a book, getting the degrees, getting the promotion etc etc

We will have to work hard to unwrap the parcel and get to the gift that God wants to bless us with. And while we're at it, depending on how it has been wrapped, we'll face challenges and difficulties.

But let us not lose hope no matter how difficult the unwrapping becomes. Let us keep up the excitement

And while we're unwrapping the fragile parcels, let us remember that we need to do it with care, and thus, it will take time.

 Just as we ask for help when unwrapping a gift, sometimes from the same person who gave it to us, let us also, In the same light, go to God and ask Him for help each time we face difficulty in unwrapping the parcels He gives to us.

God bless us all.

#TheReminder: GO GET A COPY

Hey there,
I cannot remember the last time I shared a blog post. It has been a great while. I have been away and doing nothing really except reading so much, school and getting into facebook squabbles(lol). But it is all over now. Time to get back to things that really matter. Aye!

So here is how we are going to start. Here is how we are coming back. As God willed it, my maiden book is almost done and it is titled THE REMINDER. I had a good friend help with the editing and here is a review he wrote. I'd like for you to read it and get to know a little about this book. In the meantime, till i start writing again.


"The book you are about to pay for has a hundred and thirteen pages besides the forward and introduction. It contains a collection of poems, memoirs and narratives from several sources all crafted to tell an elaborate story that is supposed to be a reminder that will strike you to respond to the things we so easily ignore.
In this book, The Reminder, you will find you…

#EchoesOfInspiration: GOD IS A TAXI DRIVER

Last night I met God. He was just getting off the phone with someone.
"in an hour's time" He said roughly, yet calmly, then he ended the call. I bet it was a prayer he was answering. (Thinking about it, that one hour he said, could mean one year oo)

When I saw him. I just knew he was the one I'd go with. He laughed a lot and for some reasons, I was drawn to him.
So after boo negotiated the fare,  I took my good bye kiss which he always, carefully plants on my forehead in the same way you put an egg down.
"Keep the jacket" he said smiling as I opened the door lazily and sat at the back seat

After sitting, I took a moment to scan the seat, as my ears caught the sound of a favorite gospel song playing and I'd never seen a taxi so dirty like the one I sat in.
"Oh what happened here?" I asked calmly though with displeasure.
"Oh a woman I just dropped off" he replied shrugging his shoulders like he really wasn't bothered about it, no, …

WHY BREAKING YOUR VIRGINITY IS PAINFUL

Bonsoir!

I guess you had an amazing weekend. I'm wondering why nobody thanks God for Mondays. I mean, there's nothing like TGIM as there is TGIF... Lol

Everyone knows that a woman's first sex is painful, breaking her virginity is paainful! But do you know why it's painful?

When we buy a "tear rubber" product, what do we do to them in order to use it? As the name suggests, we tear the rubber!

Imagine you were the rubber being torn.. Ouch!
Breaking your virginity is painful because as a virgin, you're a "tear rubber" product. Your hymen that is attached to you happens to be the rubber that gets torn and voila! Sex is sweet afterwards.

Wondering what I'm driving at?? It's simple! START UPS! Start ups are a painful experience from the beginning. You'll be wondering why you're struggling to learn that new skill, why you're suffering to start up that business, why you're struggling to adapt to your new work or school schedule, …
