I didn’t want to write today.
I didn’t feel like writing.
I didn’t know what to write by the way. Or so I thought.
So I waited till the last moment possible, looking for something, anything, no matter how little, to write. For my writing is a gift, a gift from me to you. And I didn’t want you to miss the gift for today. Of all the privileges God has given to me, this is the best I can offer to you, at least for now. You probably know why I write already, yeah, I wrote that here.
I still don’t know what to write, but I’m writing. I think that is a good place to start. You see, in deciding what to write, I browsed through my notes and stumbled upon this quote shared by a Coach, Friend, and Christian brother, AbiodunBEYOND, in a Leadership course he coordinated earlier this year:
So I’m still writing, giving you a glimpse of my mind, of its fears and cares. Truth be told, writing makes the writer vulnerable to both personal and public criticisms. Well, acting, singing, speaking and the rest do the same too. I’ll keep writing anyway.
This evening, I had a conversation with my best friend, who is a Graduate student. Among other things, I encouraged her not to quit her program, despite the challenges she has recently been faced with.
The world as we know it will only listen to the difficulties you encountered in your journey, when your SUCCESS STORY is complete. People do not want excuses where performance is expected. We are familiar with the likes of Nelson Mandela, Ben Carson, and Bill Gates, today because of a common factor- PERSEVERANCE.
And because of that same factor, Today’s post didn’t end up BLANK.
So DON’T give up, Friend. You too CAN.
Thank you for reading.
