I hate routines, it smells too…I like change. I mean that’s why we have white rice, jollof rice, fried rice, coconut rice, Chinese rice…Routines are like stagnant water to me, it stinks and makes me want to puke. I know I have to produce result and not give reasons but I don’t like to do the same thing, the same time, the same way. It’s boring!
I don’t pray at the same time, same way and say same things every day. Since prayer is communication and it is important for me to pray, I apply all forms of communication. Sometimes I do the listening while I lie down, sit up or do house chores. I end up having one of d best ‘time outs’ with big dad. But when I fix a specific time to carry out a specific task that has to be done daily, weekly, or monthly, arggghhhh …I have never seen anyone as inconsistent as ME during this time.
I like to read novels more than motivational or inspirational books. If it’s d latter, I get stuck or it takes longer time to finish. But stories, hmmn! Stories keep me alive, open my mind, make me see beyond my nose, stories make issues, situations, circumstances of life vivid to me. I get inspired, renewed and ALIVE each time I read a novel. Now, get me right, I don’t just read anything. I read write-ups, short stories, articles and novels orchestrated towards my belief, values, and life goals.
I have tried to do stuffs like others. I have also tried to do things like those who have inspired me overtime, I tried some of their routines and schedules but guess what… I always just fall flat like dough that’s lost its potential to rise.
I like to talk too …*grinning*… PRODUCTIVELY! But I like to sit and talk with individuals, two or maximum of three people per time. I don’t like to talk to people or to a large crowd. I am not saying I will never do that…but I enjoy one on one conversation. I like conversations that stimulate deeper relationships. When I have such opportunities I feel sparks on my inside. I want to do everything to see my audience of one leave excited, inspired and renewed. I want to say things that will make that person ruminate once in silence. My power is in simple words and my focus is to inspire.
I am comfortable with ME; I am relaxed in my very skin. I love to be ME and I remain ME. I can only be a better ME. I will never be ANYBODY!
As I write, I am making up my mind the more, I choose to be me, to explore my gifts and endowment. Importantly, to stick with the Potter…He made ME; He will teach me how to be me in accordance to purpose … That’s just ME!
What about you? Who are you?
Talk to God, He’s got the blue print!
