Welcome back.

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:

Well, thank God he shared that quote when he did, and thank God I came across it again, just when I needed it. 

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.

  1. Thanks, Requine.
    Thanks for reminding us never to make the hustle an excuse. Thanks for showing up today again with result and not reason. Go, Dearie. We are cheering you on!

    Friends, Let’s Stay the Course!
    Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus , who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there , in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls!
    Hebrews 12:1-3 MSG
