LIFE IS PERSONAL – THE only Person Who Cares About You is You!
I copied this from somewhere, it’s worth thinking about you know?
LIFE IS PERSONAL:
For good three months I have been away from home.
I came back and met my household healthy and doing fine as if my absence didn’t affect them.
I walked straight to my room and saw how the kids turned everything upside down.
I discovered also that my personal perfume and other things were used.
The foodstuffs in the kitchen were not in the kitchen cabinet.
Wow! they were all busy enjoying, while I was risking my life on the highways, seas, and air.
At midnight when they were all asleep, I sat down on my bed and had a deep thought about life and those around us. I mean our loved ones, whom we risk our lives for to put smiles on their faces.
Indeed, life: “Na per head”. I wonder why people take their lives.
My partner and the kids didn’t even starve a day to protest my absence for the three months.
Haba! they didn’t even wait for a year before using my personal items!
The kitchen was empty, and they were all looking healthy without me.
I can remember how I refused to shop, eat good food, join my colleagues to go for outings just because I wanted to return home with cool cash to assist my partner in making life comfortable for the kids.
Little did I know I was only punishing myself for people who were doing fine and will always be fine without me.
I thought of death, and had a clear picture of how things would look like without me.
It was at this point that I told myself that, life is all about you, and you alone. Those we call loved ones will definitely be fine when we are no more!
I have had stories of women who didn’t make it from the labour room, but their babies did, and today they are great men and women.
Life indeed is personal.
We kill for money to satisfy or impress those who don’t really care if we live or not.
We betray, loot, get involved in illicit business to impress or satisfy those who won’t keep our memory forever.
Take a deep breath friends, what if I didn’t return home?!
Don’t you think life would still have continued for my family?
Now, I Know why the Preacher keeps saying ‘All is Vanity’!
Do your little, don’t go the extra mile contrary to the will of your Creator, to impress or satisfy those whose destiny won’t stop the day you kick the bucket.
Rather be yourself, do your little, and appreciate your efforts even when the entire world fails to commend you.
Your life, integrity, dignity, are not worth sacrificing for anybody under the sun!
Be conscious of your dealings, and put your conscience and Creator first, when taking decisions.
Life, indeed, is personal.
