Three Decades On
Its been almost 9 months since my last post and looking back now, I had been drifting gradually from writing and focused more on joining the race that over 2 million individuals before me had run faithfully.
I was born on a cool Saturday morning somewhere in Lagos Nigeria, back when the military junta was making a comeback and the Naira was stronger than the US Dollar (yes, that time existed in our history).
Fast forward ten years, and my most dominant thoughts were how I was going to prepare and scale through my common entrance and G2 examinations in order to gain admission into a secondary (high) school. I was bummed though as I was not allowed to write that year and had to wait another year before I could prove my mettle against other brainiacs in the state.
Two decades on, my life revolved around getting my grades up in the university, flexing my public speaking vocal chords and chasing the girl of my dreams. I got my heart broken for the first time and was depressed for about 6 months, got better towards the end of the year and had a couple other heartbreaks in the ensuing years (that is another blog post)
Taking stock on the day commemorating the third decade spent on God's green earth, I am married to the love of my life, sit on the board of a couple of companies (www.itooknow.com, www.mugusguide.com, www.wawradio.com, www.dedgedigital.com) consult for a couple of organizations (www.goldelsh.com, www.fifthgearplus.com), host a couple of technology shows on radio (www.digitalspaceng.com, www.facebook.com/pcfixnigeria3)
I have learned a whole lot, but some of the lessons that stood out are as follows;
* Somethings can be thought, others can only be caught (you have to go through it)
* No matter what you do, people will talk. Do it anyways.
* Life is all about stewardship. We find fulfillment for our lives ONLY when we live for others.
* No matter how bad your luck is, someone else has it worse. Be thankful.
* Life is a gift. Use your time wisely.
Thank you for reading, hope to write another soon.
