#EchoesOfInspiration: THE MEN WILL ALWAYS BE MEN SYNDROME

None of us will ever find a perfect person because in reality no one is perfect.

What we're looking for is someone who is perfect in their imperfections. Someone who accepts their weaknesses, shortcomings and flaws and yet strives or is striving to become better versions of themselves, gradually attaining perfection, no matter how forever it may take.

What makes our imperfections perfect is the fact that we're able to turn them into something worthy of admiration and praise.

For example: You're a lazy person and that is definitely not a plus. And due to that, You always find it difficult getting out of bed early in the morning plus you are the best person at procrastination, you hardly get things done until the last minute.

But in a bid to be a better person, you had to find ways of working with and through your weakness because you realized that, you couldn't just change and become hardworking or workaholic overnight. In fact you could never become one. So you decided that you'll try to find easier and faster ways of getting the things you have to get done, done, so that you can get your hands off and laze around with the free time you will have left, or better still, get busy with something you'd love to do.  So much that people will hardly believe it when you tell them that you're lazy or can be, since they've come to know you as someone who gets things done.

And it hasn't been easy moving from always lazy to sometimes lazy. (LOL)
But in wanting to become a better person you've had to constantly seek motivation either from yourself or from outside. You've fed your mind with books of encouragement and determination and you've become friends with people who'll constantly challenge you.

Now In realizing that, It is the weakness your personality traits came with, you could have gotten stuck with it, constantly giving the excuse that "that's how I am" , when you know very well that you could be a better person.

Now where does this lead us to?

Reading the comments of a man, with regards to a post from a lady that suggests possible cheating by her soon to be husband, I nearly puked as I read his comments, which argued that men will always be men. This suggests that, women should accept the fact that, men have cheating added to their DNA and so should not expect otherwise.

It is rather unfortunate that some men are like that. Having such thoughts at the back of their minds, and marketing it for women to buy. (which of course gets bought by some women)..
These are the people who go about screaming that they should be accepted and loved just as they are, with no desire to become the better persons they know they can become, since the work involved in change is just too much for them to accept. So they opt for the status quo "men will always be men"

These are men, who wouldn't mind cheating on their spouses and partners. They wouldn't care to apologize for their wrongs because they themselves find nothing wrong with the wrongs they do. They wouldn't be putting in maximum effort to make a relationship work, because they have to live up to the full potential of "men will always be men" syndrome. After all, they're "men" and women are expected to do everything to keep a relationship going.


What I want to say is; if you're a man, don't accept that phrase. It is like saying that it is normal to belch and so you don't mind going about belching everywhere and anywhere.
Thus it is for this reason that some men will stand anywhere to urinate once they feel the urge to. But should that be the case? No. They should urinate at appropriate places as they expect women to do.

If all men chose to always be "men", please be the different man. Be the outstanding man. Be the man who masters the art of self control. Be the man after God's own heart. Daily living to be a better version of the men everyone seems to be used to.

Dare to be different! Dare to change! Dare to transform your weaknesses into strengths with the help of God. Remember, with God, all things are possible!!! Don't be the man who will always be a "man"

  1. Some men, like myself, will not always be men in the world's definition. We will learn, unlearn and relearn 🙌

#InTheLandOfImaginations: WHAT GOD TOOK FROM ME

Efe spun around in her room, as she looked at how beautiful she looked in her dress. She'd carefully chosen this orange circle dress just to look her best. Orange was Ebo's favourite colour and it will suit the occasion best she thought.

She paused... Something was missing... She stood still carefully scrutinizing her look, trying to figure out what was missing... She folded her arms across her chest and tapped her lips with her right index finger... "Ah haaa!" she finally let out.. She needed a necklace and she knew just which one to wear. She'd wear the one Ebo bought her on her last birthday.

She took the clothes off, took her towel and dashed into the bathroom. As she bathed she thought about Ebo, about her and about them.
They grew up together in the same neighborhood, went to the same schools even up to the University. Everyone, including her knew how a perfect match they both were for each other, but the problem was, Ebo didn't seem to see it. She'…

#EchoesOfInspiration: LOTTERY CALLED LIFE

I don't know how old you are but I know that more than half of your life has been used either for giving up, thinking about giving up, almost giving up and thinking you could never get there, you could never get to get stuff done or simply that life wasn't worth it at all

Quick reminder: you're not alone

Which one amongst us asked to be given birth to?

Reality check: none of us!

But we're here anyway, so what are we going to do? Sit down, just grow up and eventually die, or make the most out of this "unfortunate" situation called life?
I'd take the latter. You know why? Because life is like the lottery and  you have to be in it to win it as said in the movie "NAKED"

Many of us have given up on love and relationships. We don't want it anymore because someone hurt us so bad. So in order to avoid getting hurt again, we'd choose to remain single.
Do you know that means you've lost the game? That makes you the loser, that makes you a quit…

#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, …
