ATTENTION! ATTENTION!! ATTENTION!!!
Please poke all those who went to bed singing Green Day's hit... wake them up, September has ended!
In case you're wondering; while you slept, we cried, played, sowed, talked, loved and hoped a little more.
Its October 1, the first day of the rest of our lives, a day we celebrate the beginning of the next 50 years as a nation. 50 years that once again present the options to either push for greatness or turn up the volume on complaint speakers!
As we begin the last lap in 2011, we remember our tears - over the loss of dear ones, over unfulfilled dreams, over the failures of a potentially great nation, over the many stumbling blocks we face on the pathway to prosperity.
We shed tears because our hearts feel pain but I invite you to come with me into the rain, let it wash away your grief, depression and disappointments. Let it wash away every cloud hindering you from seeing the way forward. Let it not just be rain, let it be SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS!
· Pray with faith that victory is near.
· Enjoy the gifts in your possession (life and loved ones).
· Activate the CAN - DO spirit.
· Cultivate the habit of praise.
· Encourage others by doing the right thing first.
Be at PEACE with yourself, that's the only way you can help the nation pursue peace.
92 more days to the New Year. It’s enough time to get a new job, make a major breakthrough in your business, conceive an award winning idea, sow a seed of kindness, seek for forgiveness from the one(s) you've hurt, forgive the one(s) who've hurt you, fall in love, propose/accept a proposal to/from the one you love.
POSSIBILITIES... Endless possibilities abound. Tap into it for a brighter, better and befitting future or wait on the side line, murmuring and complaining of the things that have gone wrong. It’s your CHOICE, the FUTURE begins now.
Receive the baton of a new day, a new grace, a new path; take off into EXCELLENCE.
Happy Independence Day Nigeria (ns)!!!
