When all seems bleak,
Many believe life is a mystery while few others see it as an illusion but one fact people are often blind to is that life is filled with myriads of people whose realities are built just in their imaginations and their actual existence is just a shadow. Many people become depressed when they realise that the closer they seem to walk towards their destiny, the farther they are from it. Many people begin to lose hope when they come to a realization that their life is simply a shadow of the life they have dreamed to have.
Let’s make it simpler guys, many of us have an understanding of who we want to become and many of us have created fantasies of where we want to be but circumstances surrounding us makes us see these dreams and aspirations as mere fantasies that exists only in our heads. Then, comes disappointment, depression and dejection which makes most of us begin to restructure our lives solely around our present circumstances and at the end, settle for mediocrity.
The truth is, it is not wrong to dream neither is it wrong to have fantasies but the question is; how far have you worked towards achieving these dreams and fantasies? Here is the problem; many see the reality they fantasize right in their presence but are blind to see that they need to move just a little further beyond the shadows. They need to understand that it is not enough to be close, it is enough to be there.
Many of us blame our country, background and association but in reality, they could be mere factors but we are the masters of our destinies. In this same country, background and association, people have walked into their destiny so we can get there too if we don’t settle for less.
We need to go back to our drawing boards, find ourselves or re-brand ourselves as the case may be, access our journey in comparison with your destination and know if you are on the right track or you need to start the journey all over. Finally, build an empire that will accomodate your dreams and you will see beyond those shadows.
It is another year and another opportunity to walk closer to our destinies. It is never too late and I know we would take that step.
