#M.I.A

 So….I’ve been MIA! Don’t say it! I know. (rolls eyes and smiles) Thanks Felicia! Well it happens even to the best of them. Just ask Wole Soyinka about that time…You know what? Forget it! He probably won’t even remember. He’s such a genius he will write you a poem about “When life takes over” rather than narrate any time in his life when the “creative juices” just weren’t flowing because the mind was crowded or distracted.  We get carried away by our daily struggles that we lost touch with our creativity. I’ve tried to coin the perfect words to a perfect article that screams “She’s back” and well.. let’s say I’ve found it but first, let me tell you about my away time. I learned some life lessons that will please me to share with you.

  1. LIFE IS TOO SHORT. ONE MINUTE SOMEONE IS HERE, NEXT MINUTE THEY ARE GONE. LIVE EVERYDAY LIKE IT IS YOUR LAST.
  2. YOUR MOTHER IS ALWAYS RIGHT AND LOVES YOU MORE THAN ANYONE EVER WILL.
  3. IF IT IS NOT GODS’ TIME FOR YOU, PUSH PULL, FAST AND PRAY ALL YOU WANT BUT UNTIL IT HIS APPOINTED TIME FOR YOU, YOU SHALL NOT WITNESS HIS GRACE. SO BELIEVE IN THE SAYING “Gods TIME IS THE BEST”
  4. UNTIL YOU HAVE WALKED THE CORRIDORS OF A HOSPITAL AND SEEN PEOPLE SUFFER NOT BECAUSE THEIR SINS ARE MORE GRIEVOUS THAN YOURS, YOU WILL NOT GLORIFY GOD FOR YOUR SITUATION NO MATTER HOW HARD IT IS.
  5. THERE IS A REASON WE DO NOT GET TO PICK OUR FAMILY SO STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT THEM. YOU DIDN’T PICK THEM. GOD WHO MADE AND LOVE YOU SO MUCH DID. YOU SURE YOU WANT TO PISS THE MAN UPSTAIRS BY DARING TO IMAGINE HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT’S RIGHT FOR YOU?
  6. IF HE BRINGS YOU TO IT, HE WILL BRING YOU THROUGH IT.
  7. TALK LESS, LISTEN MORE. THAT’S WHAT WISE PEOPLE DO.
  8. IT’S OK TO NOT BE OK. IT’S OK TO CRY BUT KNOW WHEN TO PICK UP YOUR CROWN AND KEEP WALKING.
  9. YOUR CLICK IS YOUR LIFELINE. YOUR FRIENDS ARE THE FAMILY YOU GET TO PICK. DON’T SCREW IT UP ELSE YOU WALK THROUGH LIFE ALONE WITH SHADY PEOPLE.
  10. THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT WHATS APP GROUP CHATS. THERE IS JUST SOMETHING DELIGHTFUL ABOUT IT. IT IS A KIND OF THERAPY ON ITS OWN! THANKS AGAIN MARC ZUCKERBERG!
  11. YOU MUST SACRIFICE TO GET WHAT YOU WANT. CHANGE CAN ONLY COME WHEN PEOPLE ARE PUT OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONE. GET OUT OF YOURS TODAY AND BECOME MORE THAN THEY THOUGHT YOU WILL EVER BE.
  12. TRUE LOVE IS RARE BUT HONEY IT DOES EXIST. 
  13. BREATHE.
  14. LAUGH.
  15. EXPLORE.
  16. TRAVEL.
  17. MAKE YOUR OWN MISTAKES, THEY TEACH THE BEST LESSONS.
  18. GET THAT DRESS YOU ALWAYS WANTED.
  19. IT MAY SEEM LIKE FOREVER, BUT YOU WILL FIND YOUR WAY EVENTUALLY.
  20. LET IT GO IF IT DOESN’T MAKE YOU HAPPY.

 

Well now you know there is beauty in being Missing In Action (MIA). Now you can hold on tight, it’s February and things are about to get bumpy up in here! You ready?  Feels good to be back. Thank you for staying true. Te Amo!

Yours Truly,

Sammy
