To my millions of readers, (calling the things that are not as if they were)
Sorry I have been away since December, I promise not to do that again seeing I have been sorely missed. Yes I know its April but I am still caught up with the festivities of December, not the shopping frenzy bit or spending money I don’t have part but the having good friends around and having loud conversations, shouting over one another and interrupting each other's conversation. Good friends, Good Food, Good conversation, I love it!
I don’t think it has to be January to make a New Year resolution; I give you permission to make it any time of the year! If you have been unsuccessful for the past three months, don’t give up, dust failure off and start again. Let me give a word of encouragement, please forgive me for being so presumptuous that you want my advice. This might sound like a cliché but Go for your dreams, reach for the stars; and do not let anything stop you from reaching your goals. Not the haters, not even you. Sometimes we think we don’t have enough to be successful, we do! What if... the diamond you are looking for is in the inside of you. You just need to give birth to it (...Huh) seriously, that business you were looking to start, do not procrastinate, just go for it. That weight you have been carrying around, start losing it, one day at a time, one resolve, one step before you know it...victory.
Along with your doing, don’t forget to do something nice for someone. As you travel through the underground and you hear the sonorous music of the buskers, do not walk on by, appreciate the beauty in the symphony you are listening to and spare a change. What if when you listen it fuels your senses with renewed vigour for the day? What if...when you tap into the rhythm you will get ‘it’? I know I would want some sort of acknowledgement if I was doing something that creative. Trust me you will feel better afterwards. My brothers, don’t pass by that homeless guy, I know you think he uses his money for drugs, what if he doesn't.., My sister, what if...that boss of yours that is horrible to you at work is going through a divorce or tough times, give him a break. I know he is taking it out on you and it is not fair but at least he is not shooting you down with a gun because he has had a bad day like we sometimes hear on the news. Sponsor a child in Africa or UK; give the gift of your time to people who are needy, what if your money really makes a difference. What if...
Stop waiting for someone else to do it, we complain a lot but it is time to put ourselves out there. Let’s make our generation and fill it with worthy heritages for our children. This is my rant for today; I like to rant for another.
