SERIES: I’m ready pt 2

Hello beautiful friends. Its the beginning of a great week and I have decided to start it with another part to my series “I’m ready”.

*******
I’m ready to run my race not yours. I run your race in my heart imagining how I would have done it better in your shoes, wishing your track were mine. Then mine is left behind;empty, untouched, no leader, no gate, a free relaxation spot for everyone’s opinion(good and bad). Your spot becomes my home. A home as a spectator and slave in which I get nothing out of the many(achievements, praises, awards, fame and glory) you get. I don’t get a ‘thank you’ or a single dime in return yet I pay you in cash, time, energy, worry and fear. Now am alone and dejected. You won’t allow me lead you in your race. You don’t accept me and care less because you don’t know am here. Yes, on your track, trying to run your race, not mine. Today, I’m ready to run my race and I’m on track because I’m ready. Its dusty and many high hurdles to jump but who says cleaning and exercising isn’t fun…

Life isn’t a competition. Every individual has his/her own race to run. Sometimes you envy other people and practically start living their lives. You forget you did not start the same time, with the same style, with the same training and you have a different exam ‘type’, a different purpose, a different everything. Begin to focus on yourself and be contented with the person God has created you to be. Stop the pretence and fake way of life you have started. Set yourself to get ready to run your ‘own’ race. No matter how difficult it may seem to leave, setting your mind ready to start afresh or where you stopped, gets you back on track. Are you ready?
********
Have a wonderful week ahead dear friends…Don’t forget to apply these three tips;
1. Stay connected with God
2. Put a smile on someone’s face
3. And remain positive.

Please, check back regularly and watch out for our new post “teens speak” on the 8th of May. Let’s read what the teens have to say…

Series: I’m ready pt.1

Hello my beautiful friends! How is your week going?. Its been great for me. The tears, laughter, inspiration, stress, good sleep, good food and lessons learnt made it wonderful. I posted this on facebook and decided to share with everyone here. Its titled “I’m ready”, and its going to be a series. So, other parts would be posted subsequently. Feel free to post your comments.
PART I: LIFE’S GAME
I woke up early and prepared well for my journey, packed all the necessary things needed, but when I got to my first bus park, life played a different card. I’ve been out even before the sun yet the sun is working at its best before me. Shining brighter and hotter while I wait for the bus. I’ve wasted precious hours at the bus park but I refuse to allow the sun sleep before I get to my destination because the darker the harder. I’m ready to start a walk to my destination though I wished for a jet. I’m aware its not going to be a comfortable one but for how long would I wait?. I’m ready to start not minding how slow it seems. I’m ready to face the storms for I know they would surely come but I do not know the form it might decide to choose.
I’m ready because I’ve realised its only when you are READY, that you have started the race.

*****
Its normal for things to go the way we haven’t planned and believe me it could be very frustrating and depressing. At certain points in ones life, we all experience this. But it doesn’t tag us as failures. We only become failures when we stop(give-up). There are different routes to our destination, so if one gets blocked, we can try other routes(decent). Don’t forget you can’t start all by yourself, you need a higher source to draw from(God Almighty). Don’t be out of His coverage, He is the life you need if you desire to get to your finishing point alive. May God help us all. Amen

Have a fun-filled weekend…watch a movie, try something new, dance around, laugh with friends and more. You’ll gist me ooo. Love you*kisses*
