Out With the Fake...In With the Real

Preview to Post

A friend of mine relocated to Lagos a while back...when I asked her how she was adjusting....she was like "NoLimit people just love the pastic life"...she told me about people(I'm going to generalise and include guys too 'cos it is true!) taking out loans to rent apartments in highbrow areas like Lekki and buy cars they can obviously NOT maintain!!!
She also said said everybody tries to act like an elite and in most cases...people can see through the fake veneer...so I ask again what is the point of going burst to impress people that don't even know you exist?..."Babes" in this post can be anybody...if the shoe fits snuggly,wear it.

Out with the fake plastic life...in with the real happy life!!!
Quit it...just cos your galfriend drives a top of the range car doesn't mean you should get a loan to upgrade yourself to her "level"
Babes renew your mind...believe me when I say it isn't worth the hassle...what exactly is the point?
you want to be recognized as the shiznit...sizzling hot gyal about time...err that is a good ambition...actually it is a great one...but babes at the detriment of your financial health? At the long run, you won't be measured/judged by all that so please take a chill pill...it is deeper than all that...
If you can't be accepted the way you are by your friends...warts and all...I really wonder if you ought to be rolling with them in the first place...
Putting your financial life at risk just because you want to be in the "IT" crowd is in my opinion a foolish thing to do...I'm sorry if I'm striking a chord...c'est la vie, the truth is what it is...

You're not to be blamed entirely babes...I blame the people that make you think you're not worth a dime just because you're not living a "certain" kind of lifestyle...what ever that is...
You need to understand that people....regardless of who they are and what they have are just that...human beings with strength and weaknesses too...they are not God and will never be...and no you shouldn't make them one *I shudder to think of what it'll be like if man was God*...I digress

No you shouldn't make them gods...their word is not bond...guess what? all humans have the same lowest common denominator...we all go to toilet...so why oh why are you making them your standard...letting them dictate what you do and how you act directly or indirectly...babes you don't need that...you need the Most High!!!

Don't be fooled,most of the time,what you see is not what you get...they have their own issues and pains too you know....wake up and sharpen up...
surround yourself with people who love you for you and are not afraid to tell you the truth even when it hurts...the ones who won't judge you for being too rich or vice versa...
I pray you see you the way your maker sees you...you're special...you're top notch quality...yes you are...look in the mirror and tell yourself that...cos it is the truth!!!
get your validation from a Higher being...not mere mortals...
you're unique and rival-less...come on babes...wake up from your slumber and be who you ought to be...a queen:-)

Woman...Man With A Womb...




I'm a woman...A man with a womb...I'm fragile yet I'm durable...I'm made of refined product(s)...I am soft yet so hard...I'm a warrior...an amazon...
When I set my heart on a mission...I go all out to accomplish it...Heaven help you if you are an obstacle in my way...you either move or you feel the impact of a moving trailer...
I'm the sweetest thing that can ever happen to mankind yet can be as bitter as bile...
When I'm happy...you feel it...When I'm not...you know it!!!

I have been blessed with the gift of multitasking...watch me...do the school run,,,whilst mentally jotting down the day's to-do list and prepare for the morning's board meeting simultaneously...I talk the kids through their homework whilst preparing dinner and on the phone to my girlfriend dishing out words of encouragement all at the same...
I could have the phone in my ears...whilst painting my nails...chatting on my laptop and watching my favourite late night show...all at the same...I'm a woman!

I'm a gift to mankind...I make or break the hardest of men...Ask Samson if you think I'm joking...
I can be the wind beneath your wings or the tornado that pulls you down...
I am created to love...be it a man,woman or child...the nurturing instinct in me will spring up...Don't ever misconstrue my tears for a sign of weakness...it is what makes me unique!

I am a woman..Strong...intelligent...resourceful...A man with a womb...

Trudging on...Regardless

Enjoy this...



Bit by bit...step by step...I'm getting there...
Not taking anything for granted...Every pain...every joy...every moment to be cherished.
It doesn't matter what I think or feel...what matters is that I align my life to Your will...THE BIGGER PICTURE...
I will be grateful for the sober moments as much as I am for the great times...since I know the trials expand my capacity to receive from You...In the end...it will all add up.
When and if I have to go through pain...all I ask for is the grace and Your mercy to bear it all...'Cause of my own accord... I WON'T and I CAN'T...but with You by my side I know it will be a walk in the park...it will be just for a short while...
I am still eternally grateful Lord... and I know you love me too much to leave me the way I am...
