If we don’t like our story,
We can write just the way we want,
Take advantage of the days of glory……
These are words I credit to the song by Toni Braxton and Babyface -Take It Back. I leave out the rest of the words after glory as that ain’t the point for this post; it’s a great song by two great legendary RnB singers.
I digress. If we do not like the way things are at the moment; be it financially, socially, spiritually, we have the ability to change them. God gave each one of us a will for a reason. We can wilfully decide to change the circumstances around us or at least not allow ourselves to get drowned by them through our attitude. Circumstances are temporal as my grandmother would always tell me, ‘never make permanent decisions on temporal situations/circumstances’.
I look at our political scene here in Kenya and the world at large and there’s all these conspiracy theories of who said and who knows best how it went down- the one reason I don’t watch the local news by the way. There’s so much negativity, war and rumours of war. If we all chose peace and to spread peace, doing little acts of kindness with great love, i believe that this world would be a better place. We would have a the same situations/circumstances but a different approach.
Where was I? Oh yeah, If we do not like our story, we can change it. We can choose to take the lessons from our past situations and forge on. Those lessons are the vital tools that allow us to forge a trajectory for our life that’s better than all that has been. I have personally made a lot of wrong moves. Very many of them. I’m not perfect and imperfections are that’s what make us human, but I forge on. Wiser, and more confident.
I just need to know, you wanna go
I need to know that no matter what happens, we will all try and write a different story today onwards.
