Compass

Dear God it’s been a while. I know it’s my fault. I hid when I backslid. I guess it’s like a program in us. I mean ain’t it funny Adam and Eve did the same thing.
Yet the most perplexing thing is you came knocking once more. You just never give up do you? I’m not complaining.

I feel lucky that no matter how many times I fall you’re ever there to pick me up. You know you said forgive 70*7.

It scares me. Does that mean 490 times? I’ll admit. I don’t really understand this because it feels like I’ve been on a roll for what seems like eternity. I mean haven’t I surpassed 490? I am not proud of this but I am scared. I try not to sin but then sometimes subconsciously I lie then it hits me after that I did and it scares me that one day you may not be there to pick me up. I don’t want to be alone. Not away from you at least because I feel you in my chest spilling happiness. Mending my soul leaving it forever smiling.


Like a father you have been patient. You watch me sin but expect me to learn from my choices and if I’m being honest pain is a damn good teacher but you knew that. That’s why you didn’t stop me from going down the dark road. You wanted me to learn from the scares and the things that go boom at night that I desperately wanted to be a part of. Peer pressure am I right. Then at the end of the road you stood patiently awaiting me, your prodigal son. I guess that’s why they say there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

I can never be good enough. Not for the world, nor for your grace but you don’t need me to be good enough. You love me for who I am.. Which is why when I’m down you come to mind. When I’m happy I raise my voice.


Even in between I still look to you. You are my compass. For in this life we learn and evolve. We change constantly. Lose people, Lose love, We lose ourselves, Our minds, but even when all is lost. You’re still our compass. You’ve always been the North point. In the end you are hope when we have none. You are peace when we need it most.

You are life when we are on the edge. You provide when we have none. You are first and last. Our friend and master. You are that which we cannot see. You are that which we feel and believe. You are will un faulted. For you are I am.

Legacies

Footprints and legacies can be hard to form. Sometimes the world takes you in a completely different direction from where you want to go.

Let me explain. Imagine you went to school. Chose a four year course in the spur of the moment not knowing who you are or what you want to become. You chose out of the thought that it won’t matter what you do. I mean very few people end up doing what they study for.

Two years down the line you found your passion. It came late and there’s no looking back. You decide to stick with the course as you do what you truly want. Multi tasking can’t be that hard right.


However, the passion grows and all the other activities feel like a hindrance. You have less time for your passions and it is stressful. You want to drop everything. Telling yourself everything will be okay. I mean you believe in yourself and you know you won’t stop until you reach your goal.

Reach for the Stars


You truly want to burn every boat but there’s a lot at stake. Too many people to disappoint. Hell you feel like hiding just to thrive on what you feel is truly yours. Avoid the critics and the million lectures from family and friends. Everyone thinking you are crazy. Letting go of something safe. Something guaranteed to take a risk.

It can be constricting to dream a dream while chasing a different reality trying to be patient enough to finish the study you are on just so you can reach for the Stars and fly higher than limits reach.

Freedom

Dreams that burn your bones. Dreams that stress through your pores, that make your heart beat faster, louder. Dreams that make you restless.

You are left wondering if you should quit to chase your dream leave footprints that will teach your predecessor to go after their passions or values or should you cower to pressure. Be patient not sure if when you are done you will pursue your dream or succumb to more pressure from the ones you love and be imprisoned by regrets of what could have been.

Chasing your dreams

Choose the path that leads to your happiness. Everyone lives their lives separate from yours. The world may abandon you now but when you succeed, you will once again be the pride they want to be associated with. Choose your path. If you have no direction, don’t stray from the path you have been raised on. You will fall on your own, alone. Leave the path only when you know you are ready and sure.

Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart. -Roy T. Bennett.

Dos and Don’t of Valentines Day

The month of love has finally arrived and as always ladies, some of you are about to be disappointed big time.

Some, well the lucky few who actually get more than they expected. Well let’s just say alot of people envy you.

So here are some does and don’t for Valentine’s day.

First things first, The Venue. Guys, please do not take a lady out to a fast food joint that she probably goes to daily. I don’t care how broke you are.

Valentines day

It is cheaper to make her a nice home cooked meal and I don’t know. Set up some candles set the mood. Fast food restaurant or places you know she frequents are a no go zone. Try something different. Take her for a picnic at night or a weekend away to a peaceful place. Try something out of the box.

Ladies on the other hand try lower your expectations. You might end up missing out on an amazing night because you’re hung up on a trip to Fiji.

Peonies
Peonies

The second thing you need to remember is roses aren’t the only kind of flowers out there. I mean we have red carnations which are cheaper by the way, orchids. They last longer than roses and damn do they scream exotic. My personal favorite would be peonies. They have this fairytale feel to them.

For the ladies. Don’t expect him to make a big deal out of Valentine’s day like you. Men don’t tend to be all mushy and sentimental about this holiday. I mean I get it. Do we actually treat our men for Valentines day? Hell if he got a PS 5 on the 14th. Valentine would probably be one of his favorite holidays. I get it’s a ladies holiday but don’t make it all about you. Compromise.

Next thing you need to know is Valentines day comes with goodies. Sexy lingeries, cute undies. I mean you don’t need a man to buy these things. Just get one for yourself. Feel sexy.

Take care of what you eat. Things like garlic and onions can leave your mouth smelling. It ruins the mood. He probably won’t lean in for a kiss at the end of the day.

Ofcourse the biggest mistake any guy could make is to forget about the holiday. Plan ahead. Look for substitutes of packed restaurants. Make an early reservation. Oh and don’t forget, you might not be together on that day but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a belated Valentine.

Lastly, dress up. Feel sexy. Go out and make other men jealous. A sexy woman is confident. You’re a mood girl. Don’t sit around sulking because you are all alone. Don’t spend the night on that sofa watching chick flicks or Hallmark movies. Heck go live them.

Hit him with your car and fall in love. I mean it’s Valentines. Anything can happen. Cupid is granting wishes. ♥️
