It is I on your screen this time, at this moment, with this small gist.
The time is 5:11am and I just realised something..
It has been a while you have seen my post.
So, here is something I have for you, that might just sit you up or fall you flat on your face.
In this article, I will share with you what the title entails and why I chose that.
But first, a small tale.
Around this time two weeks ago, I needed to return back to the hustling and bustling of Lagos, and this happened ..
I was dishing out hot articles that would make anyone feel I have got my act together (I actually felt I did).
I was getting people to notice what I was doing, and it was really great.
Until, some things creeped in ..
One Time Wonder ..
Self doubt ..
Not doing what I say ..
Now, all these things didn’t happen at once, they came one after the other.
And instead of focusing on plans to get myself up and running, I focused more on the vehicle that will take me to my destination.
It cost me a whole lot, and made me lose some valuable time that I should’ve used to get things up and running.
It cost me some relationships as well.
It also made me realise I am human.
Now, being all human and not wanting to remain in that loop.
I decided to do something instead..
I gave myself time to breathe.
I decided to give what I had and not what I hoped I had.
I decided to make accurate plans (still planning).
I decided to take my life into my hands.
I decided to choose myself again and again because I realised that if I don’t do this for me, no one will.
I decided to reach out.

Now, this isn’t a motivational talk, it is more of an action talk, and a more of don’t let life pass you by talk, also a more of get your act together talk.
