Travelling for Christmas
In this part of the world where we live, travelling for Christmas is very important and every Christmas season, we embark on Christmas journey back to our villages or from one city to another. Come with me as I narrate to you my experience in this year’s Christmas journey.
I was to travel from my College to my residential home which is in the city of Ibadan. The city of Ibadan is the largest city in West Africa. I was travelling from far eastern part of my country to the west. I entered an eighteen seated bus and my journey was meant to be just eight hours but due to bad roads, traffic jam and driving breaks, we spent sixteen hours travelling on this very day. Well, this journey happened on the 22nd of December.
We passed through six different states before we got to the city of Ibadan. When we got to Benin City, we had a flat tire. The worst thing was that it happened to two of the bus back tires and we had to stop on the high way to fix it. There came the communal life style of the people of Nigeria; every passenger in the bus came down to fix the tire. It was only the four ladies in the bus who did not participate in the action.
It was fun fixing the tires and I was taking some shorts with my phone cameral and the same time assisting in the fixing of the tires. We had to use jack to pull the bus up and bring out the tires one after the other well, our driver did it himself but we the passengers helped in inspiring him by making a hell of noise. When we finished fixing the tires, it was now time to fix in the both tires but the Jack our driver used got spoilt!
We had to come together and pull up the bus while our driver arranged the tires on after the other. Belief me, it wasn’t easy pulling the vehicle up, the ladies didn’t assist us, they were busy gisting with local women who were selling oranges. The action lasted for about two hours, this was because we were not professionals. During the period of intervals, I went to join the ladies who were not helping in anything at that time, they were only buying oranges from local sellers there.
These local sellers sold oranges at very cheap rates. I asked one of the women selling the fruit to prepare one for me to test. She did as I said and after testing it, I found out that it taste so good and I demanded for some supplies at a very cheap rate. We interacted with the local residents of the village and we all laughed out and forgot our problems (problems that we are facing in the name of democracy). One of the local sellers was so friendly that she taught us some of their local mother tongue, it then occurred to me that Nigeria is truly big and diversify. I have never heard that language before in my entire life, the tone was so unique and the orange seller was very happy, she even expressed this as she laughed out each time ten seconds passes that moment. The local residences were happy and satisfied. To them, we in the city and with western life style are missing a lot; they had little to worry about. The little gain they make from selling oranges behind the high way is enough for them.
When I got home, my family members came out to welcome me and I presented to them the oranges I bought while coming back. I felt so good of because all my family members have being waiting to welcome me, my phone switched off on my way and we arrived Ibadan city late. We arrived by 10 pm. What a Christmas journey I had. Do you care travelling with me next time?
Chicken for Christmas
Have you ever wondered what it will look like if the whole world kills and shares one whole chicken? I can imagine how top presidents fights and struggles for their own share of the chicken. You can imagine President Barack Obama struggling to get little part of the chicken that is meant for everyone in the whole world. What a Christmas it will be!
World leading counties such as USA, Britain, China, Russia, France, will use the principle of military threat to take bigger of the share while smaller countries will beg for help and unity of other small countries to get their own share. Western Europe headed by USA will preach democracy as a weapon to confuse the rest of the world so as to get their own better share of the Christmas chicken while China will preach communism to get their own share of the chicken.
Countries in Africa such as Nigeria will get the left over shares giving to them by the leaders of confusion and hide them at the Swiz bank only for the privileged few. Yes of course, they are confused, they don’t know the actual meaning of democracy but they claim to know. America and the West gets half of the chicken, China and Russia gets almost half and the remaining part that is very small goes to the confused countries such as Nigeria.
West and American presidents will demand for their own full and satisfying share so as to get enough distributed among the proud citizens of their various countries while the leaders of powerful Asian countries (China, Japan, Russia) reacts to protect their own interest so long the leaders of Democracy don’t tamper with their own share (powerful Asian share). The shares of the less powerful countries with majority of them in Africa keeping quiet and accept any share given to them. The leaders of these African countries don’t protest because the few share of the chicken goes to their personal accounts in Swiz bank or those who wants to talk will keep short and pretend that all is well before drone jets are sent to eliminate them from office in the name of democracy.
Well, smaller countries only receive, they don’t agitate, if they do, drone Jets will be sent against them with the help of CNN and BBC, the world mocks hungry citizens of less powerful countries as pictures of hungry people who did not get shares of the only chicken available in the world for charismas. These powerful countries only practice the so called democracy within, they don’t practice it without. Hope you understand me. What an experience of chicken for charismas which has being happening for several decades now.
The place of colour in your relationship
I will be writing on the place of colour in your relationship. Do you know that colours are very powerful? Yes, they are very powerful; the truth is that your partner is in love with one colour or the other. Everyone has one favourite colour or colours; it is now left for you to find it. Your partner’s favourite colour is that colour that melts down his or her hearts whenever he or she is in bad mood. Let look at what your partner’s favourites colours can do for you as you drive further to show love in tour relationship.
Colour enhances forgiveness: do you know this? Well, if you make your partner angry and your partner is finding it hard to forgive you why not try using his favourite colour to wrap up a gift and write on it ‘I’m so sorry my love’. That will surely help. Your partner does not have power over how he or she should react whenever he or she sees his or best colour. Try it.
Colour restores lost or dying love: absolutely truth, love can be restored by the presence of colours. Have you ever tried decorating your house or room with your partner’s favourite colours? Take note that you have to do them when your partner is not expecting them. Colours can provoke your partner to love you again. As I said initially, no one has power over how he or she should react when the person sees his or her favourite colour. This can work very well in marriages especially those with weakened love or lost completely.
Creates open mindedness between partners: the love and happiness one will derive from the introduction of colour will create atmosphere for open hearts minds between both couples/
Colour can bring back happiness. Well, for me, whenever I see my favourite colours, I find myself being very exciting and happy. My favourite colour is white and my Love normally calls me her Angel whenever I wear anything with white. I try not to be angry because of my colour. Are you wondering why? Well, I can’t help it, you also can’t, and that is the nature of things. Go and make good use of your partner’s favourite colour(s). Thanks and see you soonest.
I don’t like rats! I hate their mouth,
They make me shout
I hate their colour
Its reminds me of horror
Rats are fearful enemies, always running
In the night, climbing my legs when I’m sleeping
Yes, because I’m sleeping
Always making my sisters to be screaming
Rats are uninvited guests
Always putting me under quest,
Quest for what? Quest for their defeat
I have my fears to beat
I have wage war against THEM
Like that war between David and Goliath
I have my fears to defeat
If I really want to succeed
I heard her sing
I heard her sing like a Nightingale
Her voice was loud and peaceful but was as powerful as a gale
Her voice was louder than that of the Israelites
Calling my attention to the presence of sun light
I heard her children shouting; ‘we are free! We are free!!
Yes, but whose children are free?
The children of her that sings
They have be given some wings
Some wings to be flying
They have being told to stop crying
I listened very well to her song
She sings song of INDEPENDENCE!
She sings; ‘NO MORE DEPENDECE’, NO MORE DEPENDENCE!!
WE ARE FREE FROM OUR TASK MATERS!
YES! AFRICANS TASK MASTERS
Have you wondered what you can lose being frustrated? This is one situation most humans have not being able to handle; some people are easily frustrated and once they find themselves in that frustration, they act in violent way, some will keep shortening their life spam by being quiet while they wallow in pains emotionally, some will stop what so ever they were doing before falling into the frustration mood, some will use abusive words, some take harsh and regretting decisions etc. Which one you find yourself doing, which maybe negative to you and those around you, you just have to stop them. Do you know you can stop acting those ways and be the controller of your actions whenever you are frustrated?
A good friend of mine was frustrated by one project he was doing; the project failed him after so much investment, do you know what he started doing after he got the result that his project has failed? He started drinking! He was used to drinking whenever he is frustrated and he wasn’t happy with it but couldn’t help himself out of it. This is because humans act like something that has been programmed; our body tends to act in a certain way once we continuously act in that way for a particular reason. This is because we get use to certain acts consciously or unconsciously. My friend drank on this particular day and went home driving and had an accident which led to him losing one of his legs! Don’t be shocked please. One of my friends do eat too much whenever she is angry; she buys things, my other friend has formulated a character of destroying his properties whenever he is frustrated. All these people do regret after such actions and want to stop them. Well, I’m trying my best to help them out. Are you like that or you know someone with such character?
I believe that humans can control their actions by choosing to do so and this can be done by choosing to do positive things at all times. Take for instance, if you start from today to engage yourself into music each time you find yourself frustrated, or you start by saying positive things such as I’m not going to drink this time around, I’m not going to eat too much or spend too much this time, I’m not going to destroy my properties, I’m not a slave to this character, such sayings will put you in the right frame to come out of it without doing some negative things. You can control yourself, yes, you can, just say it constantly and your inner part will respond to it. As for me, I listen to music once I’m in a bad mood and it has helped me not to take decisions that caused me regret. This is what I call programming your life to act in a particular way. Best of luck.
A very simple way to fail is by trying to please everyone
I can only write wise saying only if I read wise saying; knowledge investment is the most profiting investment
That it worked for you does not mean it must work for me; being original is the answer.
Successful people don’t join the crowd because they are successful because of the crowd
It is very easy to criticize but difficult to act
Your greatest enemy is your fear
Life is not fair so, don’t expect things in it to be fair
Don’t quest for the point where you fail on floor but quest for where you slipped off
Nothing is free in life not even salvation is free
Life is a race; not all that were conceived were born, not all that were born will enter the main race, not all that started the race will get to the touch line, not all that got to the touch line will receive the award, not all that received the award will survive.
Men of great ideas cannot implement
There is a reward for every single thing you do
Every man will complete his circle period on earth; nobody is too young to die and no one is too old to live
The four Cs and H in the journey for success
Commitment; be committed in anything you do
Consistent; always be consistent
Correction; take corrections when necessary
Communication; make your communication as clear as possible; say your mind
Honesty; be very honest
Hate no one, like everyone but love a few
You can know who a person is by what he says about others than what others say about him.
Be the best friend of the person who makes you smile and the friend of the person who adores you but be the wife of he that brings out the best in you
Never wait till you are pulled, so, take action!
Guns don’t kill; humans do!
People with no ideas makes so much noise
It’s very easy to dream but very difficult to accomplish.
Do not allow people to determine who you should be because what you will be comes from within, make your choice yourself.
Always listen to your inner heart, the truth about yourself dwells there
Knowing who your friends are makes you good but knowing who you really are makes you great.
The difference between the rich and the poor is the lost of opportunity and taking advantage of one
A message for the New Year
The New Year is around the corner and what are you doing about it? In one of my posts, I advised that you try and celebrate your Christmas with a mad person and see how wonderful your season would be. I mean it but this post dwells on what you have to do to get prepared for the New Year. Believe it or not, 2012 will be a very unique year for all; more hunger and more food, more death and more birth, more failure and more success etc. This means that only those with a well programmed life will get more of the positive side of 2012. The question now is what can you do to have a programmed life for 2012?
First, you have to believe that natural forces will have upper hand come 2012 and many more European countries will face much more problems which were caused by their forefathers- colonizing Africans for selfish motives. If you find yourself in that part of the world, try as much as possible to have a food storage centre and save more money and spend less. This means life programming; you have programmed your life to operate in a particular formula. I mean it! What is the next thing to do?
The second thing to do is to be good to all black people; be good to any one with African descent. it is the turn of the black people to rise to the top with greater influence. Countries from Africa will smile because nature will reward them, so, be good to them so that they can be good to you. Remember the needy no matter how small you may be having. These steps are what I mean for your life to be programmed.
Finally, set a target that is realistic for yourself come 2012. Make sure your goals are very realistic write down all your mistakes you did in the past year and write out how you can correct them. One of those targets should be to get married for those of you who are old enough to get married.
These things will help you experience a more fulfilling 2012; please, do take note of all that I have noted here in your note pad because it will surely work out these ways. Check out for countries like South Africa, Egypt, Algeria, China and Iran. HAPPY NEW YEAR IN ADVANCE!
