Pre Script: Dear Fam.. do you guys see that beautiful lady on my template? yeeeaahhh Mehn! Thats the ever cheerful and always beautiful Abimbola Akinmade i told Y'all about. She is one of the finest and smartest humans i know, and I bless GOD that I know her.. Did I state that she writes for Bella Naija? And yep! She is my Blog crush for the week :) Turn up!
Turn Up Turn Up great Young mind… In Eric Thomas’ voice: “Thank GOD its Monday Ladies and gentle men..” How are you guys nah?? Damn! I have missed disturbing blogsville oh! Whats it been? 7 days or so… mehn make una no vex jo, this nigga right here needed to clear his head. I mean last week was kerosinely mega crazy for me, and my emotions were on a hellish bound level. But you know nah, “man no die man no rotten”, and in Barr. Duru’s voice “JdB if we didn’t die last week, mehn we no go die again…” How have you been? heheheh mehn I am so excited to be back here.. lemme just say a quick thank you to you guys for dropping your kind comments on my last post… lemme also just say, that that post was one of the most painful posts I have ever written, and I hate it so much that I might never re-read it..
might shaa… So how was your weekend? Mehn a phrase has been in my head all
morning oh! And it’s what Mannie said a while ago… It went something like “We’ll
all be rich… “So hold on to that Fam… Cause the fact that you don’t have the
Range Rover Evogue today yeah, don’t mean we won’t have it tomorrow.. Can I hear
an Amen somebody… #PastorJdBmode.
Now I had one really playful post in my head all last week, and I had said to share with you great people, but yesterday evening, I saw a butterfly. Now there are very few things you see in the Durus self acclaimed “mansion”
no go believe ooo there is no Mansion
yet, I just said that cause it felt good in my head.. Plus you know nah, Fake
it till you make it. , and that includes butterflies. Now that was the
Eureka moment for this post, but I shrugged it off. When I went to draw the
rope of generator when this Awon oniranu withdrew power again, I saw the
butterfly again! And you know when I was a Pastor in training till woman and
alcohol changed my destiny, Bro Chinaza taught us in Sunday school, that in the
Bible yeah, when GOD says something twice, then na serious gbege, so I tapped
into the spirikoko side of me and saw it as a sign! Can I hear an amen someborii..
Now in the past days my life has been bleak, it’s been like I lost a part of me, like CBN froze all the money that I don’t have, and like nothing meant much to me.. I couldn’t think! It was so bad that last week Monday ehn, I was an Emotional wreck and I couldn’t as much as compose a mail at the 8-5, and letters took me hours to draft.. But that beautiful butterfly I saw twice last night taught me something, it preached to me. Fam, permit me to kindly tell you something you already know.. The world ain’t all sunshine, mushy mushy, lovey dovey, and rainbow, No! it’s a really mean and nasty place, and It don’t care how tough you are, its gonna beat you to your knees, and keep you there permanently if you LET it. So me you or nobody should ever treat life with a soft spot. But the thing ehn is that it aint about how many times you are hit, it’s about how many times you can get hit and keep moving forward, how many times you can keep keeping on. That’s what it is. Life will never give us that which we sincerely want, I mean pardon my expression, but I see life as a rapist that rapes us all without protection, and leaves us at the mercy of 9months, destiny, and the never satisfied and judgmental public... So here we all are, after being raped and declared with child, we go on with that unwanted pregnancy in our wombs daily, constantly keeping on and not knowing what to expect.. Some of us after being raped by life and realizing that we are pregnant look for a way to terminate our life, some of us look for a way to terminate the pregnancy by indulging in drugs and alcoholism and more random sex, some of us quit, while the really few brave ones like Erniesha Tibs, take life as it comes and just keep keeping on regardless. The few believers carry the pregnancy for 9 months with hope, believing that regardless that the child is in all ramifications unwanted, yet still we love it regardless. We live life with our pain expecting victory regardless.
I once heard a story of a 7 year old and a butterfly. Now this child saw a caterpillar evolving into a butterfly, he watched with awe and patience, as the butterfly struggled to come out of the cocoon which bound it as a caterpillar, he watched how the insect struggled, pushed, pulled, cried, and strove to be free from the cocoon of being the caterpillar, and then the young boy with the best of intentions had mercy, he had pity on the butterfly trying that was struggling so hard to be liberated from the cocoon, and then he ran into his mothers room, got a pair scissors, and began to cut open the cocoon.. He did this so happily, because in his naïve innocent mind, he deserved the Nobel peace prize for setting the innocent butterfly free. But he didn’t know he had done the butterfly harm. You see what this lad didn’t know was that the butterfly that he helped to liberate would from the point of liberation, till death never fly, cause his wings didn’t develop fully, as he had only a wing and a half. You see fam, the boy didn’t understand that the butterfly had to go through so much pain at his evoliution stage to move from being a caterpillar that crawls to a beautiful butterfly that flies. He didn’t understand that the pain, striving, tears and hustle that the butterfly underwent to be freed from the cocoon of the caterpillar was a training period, one that was necessary to develop the wings, a period of training. The child didn’t understand that what looked like a period of pain was in actuality a period of EVOLUTION, so he infact did harm trying to do good.
You see many of us strive to receive pity from the society, we want to get all the “ehya’s” and “Ndo”, and “sorry” as if that is gonna make us better. We hate the evolution stages of our life cause it looks and feels like hell, but we fail to realize that pain is temporal, it might last for a minute, and hour, or a second, but eventually it will pass, and something else will take its place, VICTORY, SUCCESS, WEALTH, TRUE LOVE. We fail to realize that if we quit however, then pain and failure will be ours forever, and we will end up like that Butterfly with a wing and a half all our life. So this morning great young mind I implore you, NO! I beg you to be willing to go through pain, to not take disappointments and failures as the end of the road, but to understand that at the end of everything yeah, everything will be alright. So if everything is not alright now, then we are not at the end… I want you to know that pain, failure, Rejection and being broke is a part of life… so don’t sweat it when you are these phases of life, but just go on your knees, look up to GOD and say “Papa, we are in this together sir.”
Thank you for the past 7 minutes of your time great young minds, you do me a great honor. My prayer for you this week is that that person that is supposed to give you a ride, or pay money into your account, or toast you on the BRT will not forget you or change his/her mind. J Cheers Fam, you are why I write.
