So Royalty.. Last week Thursday I had to go to Samsung Office at Ikeja to fix Dr Duru’s Laptop, and then I ended up trekking he entire Oba Akran ** looks at shoe, Chei! I have suffered in this life. I was on my own oh, and then having that my sisters licensing exam is coming, and her stupid craze man Laptop didn’t know that now was not a good time to crash, I had to go fix the laptop, where as Dr. was supposed to pay some money into my account. Have I told you that Dr likes to put her phone on silent and throw inside inside her bag that it would take an Ultimate search to find it? So ongoing to Ikeja, my FBN account balance was N1,877, and my Stanbic was N470( I dey owe them sef :(), so in pure Naija English I was broker than a Broken iPad screen last week. Not like I was broke sha, I just didn’t have liquid cash. So after those goons at Samsung had wasted my time finish, it was time to go home. Looked at my phone, No Alert, call Dr. taa For where, the phone just kept ringing like Dj Cuppy was using it to do DJ work at a party. It was then i knew that my own e haf finish.. I was about to get screwed and my woes had begun, as I didn’t have cash in my wallet to go home.. and those Mumu Buses no get POS machine :( You know that Mogbe moment when you don’t have money, and then the person that was supposed to credit your account decides to leave her phone in silent in her bag.. Well Yep.. I was there. Frustrated was an understatement. And I jejely started doing Gulder ultimate search, looking for an ATM that would pay me in denominations of 500 so I can jejely take out the last withdraw able N500 in my account, but for where? All the Mumu ATM’s in Ikeja were only paying 1k and above. At one time I went to Wema bank.. Not GT oo, Wema bank that doesn’t have customers ooo, to take money, and their ATM sef was paying 1000.. as in I was burnt, confused and frustrated. I Called my sister and taya! For where, it was like she was dancing to her ringtone. So it was at that moment I faced my fears, walked into FBN and attempted to withdraw N 600 from the counter.
Omo as I dey enter ehhnnn see fasting and Prayer that I was scabashing in my mind, hoping that I wouldn’t go and jam somebody that I went to Uni with at the service desk oo, or a lady that I once toasted inside BRT there... So once I got in I first looked at the cashiers to check if I knew them, but heaven so kind the coast was clear, and upon realizing that I knew none of them, I went straight to the customer care lady and was like ma I need a withdrawa slip. Heheh when I filled the damn thing out, and she saw 600 Naira ehnnn.. heheh her Eyes popped out.. but wetin concern me, is it not my money ni? So while she did the whole processing to take N210 for counter withdrawal thingy, I sat next to her, legs crossed and ** in Ijagz voice, I was feeling like a pimping. After wards I went to the lady at the counter and jejely gave her my withdrawal slip of six hundred naira ONLY.. hehehe I saw her smirk a bit but what concern me? Is it not my money? As I left the bank that day with my head high, and my 600 naira in my pocket I got thinking.
The Bible says that we are created in the image and likeness of GOD, hence we are gods. If I am correct then, it means all of us were actually born kings, born wealthy, born to rule and not to be ruled over, but the thing is most often yeah, most of us judge ourselves by our present forgetting that our future should define us more than our today. I mean we don’t have to be the richest now, the most beautiful, or the most charismatic of people to get all that we want or to be happy, all we need is the proper mindset of Royalty, the ability to believe that we are much more than our present, that we are worth more than our today, that there is hope for a greater tomorrow, regardless that today isn’t all that. I was listening to Pastor Joel Osteen this morning as I took my shower with
Ice cold water. At one time ehn, I
almost ran out of the bathroom.. aha!! Lagos weather shaaaa, the water was too cold, like Titanic kinda cold :(…. He said something
about the Queen of England, and it had me thinking that the Queen doesn’t work, walk and live with so much poise cause she is the richest, nor cause she is the most Beautiful,
I mean my baby is far more beautiful than the Queen of England jo, but the Queen
of England works with so much poise cause she KNOWS she is Royalty, because she knows deep within her WHO she is, and I think that’s something
that most of us don’t know, or we fail to remember. We fail to remember that
our Today doesn’t define our tomorrow, that regardless of the fact that things aren’t
all we hoped for, or that we have just 600 Naira liquid cash in our wallet **Shines
Teeth, that everything will always be that way..No! We have and can create a
better life for ourselves regardless of our today.
So this morning, I implore you great young minds to be the very best that you can be all time every time, to not let your “”NOT SO GREAT”” today define you, but to hope for a better tomorrow. I dunno why I am adding this, but to all who have failed at very important times of life just like I often have, lemme just add that Failure isn’t a definition of who we are yeah, but a definition of what we did in a wrong way, so never give up on your dreams regardless of what today is.
Thank you for the past 7 minutes of your time Fam, you guys do me a great honor. Ehm.. **Scratches Head to Esther koko and Moby asking how I know its 7 minutes, well all I can say is use your church mind and accept that it is 7 minutes ooo jari, and the lord will bless you richly as you accept it.. **Shines teeth.
