Thoughts That Keep Me Awake At Night

I decided to make this post by this time of the night, because some of us nursing this particular thought stay awake through the night.

In the last quarter of 2016, I met an old acquaintance at a fast-food joint. I was already eating before I noticed him and moved over to his table.

A jolly good fellow who always cracked everyone up with jokes and good vibes. I asked how life has been treating him but he was reluctant to answer.

"Beck we dey. We just dey rough am dey go."

He was served and as we ate, we reminisced on old days and life. Then suddenly he blurted out; "It is good to know oneself and believe in your journey."

"Have you turned to pastor Moti? What do you mean?"

"Beck you won't understand. If I told you where I was coming from now, would you believe?"

"You have always spent your free time in hotels and expensive waists. So which one did you shut down recently?"

He washed his hands and told me he was serious about what he was about to say.

"So where did you go?"

He visited a native doctor his friend referred him to who would "wash his destiny" so he could hammer. But before the washing, he insisted the man should divine into his future and tell him what he saw.

"Beck my guy, the man told me I had a good star and I would succeed, but I will have to struggle hard. But if I don't want to struggle, he will make the road easy for me."

After some seconds, I paid him and thanked him for his consultation.

"Did you do the washing?"

"No I didn't. Since he already knew I had potential, let me go through hell and work hard for my life. I don't want to invoke spirits I don't know about."

Two weeks before the lock down this year, we were chatting and he told me he has built a duplex for rent in Asaba. And other good things happening for him.

I was so happy for him. It took a long time coming but he learnt through the hard times.

As you're going through hard times now and thinking of easy ways to pass out, remember there's always a price for the short cut.

See through your life's process and you'll be eternally grateful you did.

It may not always be easy, but you can always reach out for any emotional or career related stress you're going through.

Till we get to the Promised Land, I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
