Loudest Ovation

When is the right time to leave? Is there ever a time to leave? It’s often said that the best time to leave is when the ovation is the loudest.

What happens when we feel the ovation is not yet loud? What happens when you keep telling yourself, “just try one more time”. What do you do while waiting for the loud ovation to kick off?

How many of us still nurse dreams of eons ago? Oh no, reality hit and we forgot to dream rather we fell into a rut or do I call it the rat race? Then we start the same cycle of having a dream, never bold enough to bring it to reality, fall into set expectations as given by folks and our environment and just forget to follow the stars… ergo dream

Guess this is a rant of sorts… or maybe the world around me is going crazy and I am trying not to lose me in the noise or maybe I just want to strike out and stay unique.

Have you ever felt like you are in one place? Like you are running in a maze or perhaps chasing your tail? 

Oh well, maybe you got it all figured out…


Lime to Lemonade

lime to lemonade

A popular saying – when life gives you limes, you make lemonade.

This has been the case for the past 3months. You realize that whether you are hungry or full, the sun still shines and the rains still fall.

When you think that you are strong, Life throws you a curve. And you either halt or take a turn or retrogress.

What did I do? I removed my 6-inch heels and put on my flat shoes. And walked the talk. I am not there yet, but I am still moving. A quarter of 2017 is rolling away, and never to come back, I just look at myself in the mirror and say, It ain’t over yet. I still have 3 more quarters to go. My colleagues moan how broke and tired they are. I smile and tell them, at least you are alive to moan. Me, I just carry this smile that doesn’t reach my eyes and move on with life.

In this first quarter, I learned how to prioritize. Compromise took a new level. Yeah, nobody said Life is Fair. And I am a wiser person.

Dear patient readers, what has the first quarter of 2017 taught you? Did you, like me learn to talk less and think outside the box? Did you feel like you running in a maze with no end? and Did you feel like a zombie, wake up by 4am, catch a ride to work by 5am, work like a drone bee till 5 or even 7pm, get stuck in traffic for another 2- 3 hours depending on where you call home, get home late and conk out! sleep or laze through the weekend?

Congratulations! you survived! Now, go kick some ass in April!
