I’m so sorry that there has been no new post in soo long, it seemed like a while to me too *covers face*. Thanks to everyone who checked up on me asking why there were no latest posts, there is now..lol.. been so occupied with work and planning for the major event my NGO is organizing this December tagged ‘Bright Christmas’ (PS: Bright Christmas is a way to give back to the people by simply putting smiles on their faces and sharing with them the joy and the laughter that Christmas brings…soo that’s basically it) I hope you remember Christmas is only a month away *dancing*..lol. Don’t mind me..I know you do.
Todayyy, I’d be sharing with you what I finally decided to share after much thinking and pondering..There really was much thinking believe me, you want me to tell you? hmm? okay, I would..So this is pretty much how the conversation between me and TGAA, my blogger self went..
Me: OMG!! I haven’t put up a blog post in like forever
TGAA: You see, and there are so many things for you to blog about..
*flashback to the diary in which I wrote them down, picked it up and hurriedly flipped through the pages…there you are!*
Me: I can see them but it’s not just time yet..
TGAA: No post about relationships under ME-motions?
Me:Well…I just haven’t been in love lately..lol (couldn’t help but laugh at myself)
TGAA: Yes! How about that one topic that has always been on your mind to blog about
TGAA: That one now…
Me: *grumbles* I don’t….ooh! I do oh…but I’m still gathering momentum for that one…
TGAA: sigh..*feels defeated*
Me: *back to work*
That was a few days back but here I am now…
During the week, something happened..A friend who was once my tutor asked me to write a testimony for his website, basically about the tutorial and all..the things I learnt and the exam scores I got. I wore my thinking cap and reminisced on how I was before and after the period I attended the tutorial..picked up my computer and started to write.
In the end, it turned out to be a very lengthy one…Of all the many things I put down, one of them was how ‘The tutor’ always encouraged me..during the tutorials, I was a late comer, a noise maker, an ardent hater for anything that had to do with calculations so I abhorred Math and Economics. However, all these changed afterwards…how it happened I don’t know!
Under 3 months, all of that attitude changed.. I asked myself, why does ‘The tutor’ do all the things he does. He must have told himself he wanted to change the attitude of people like me who had just given up on a whole lot..he must have told himself that he wanted to change ‘hate’ to ‘love’, how he wanted to inspire and push others to doing great things…
So I asked myself, why do I do all of the ‘things’ I do? All the good and the bad..Do I do it for people to clap for me and sing my praises or for the reason behind why I do things to spur people on to doing even better things? Why do I sing? Why do I blog? Why do I go to church? Why do I choose to work with an NGO to effect social change via social media? Why do I make people laugh? (PS: I think I have become so funny so much so that I am compared to Bovi, a comedian in Nigeria..lol 😉 )
Why do you do all the “things” you do? Ask yourself this and carry out a self-examination…I’m still carrying out one on myself too.
Have a blessed weekend>>
Lots of love and chocolate,
