I was surfing through one of my Facebook accounts, and I saw pictures of my old school mates and what they’ve become
Eminiolohunseyifun(Am the one God bless like this) was a notorious boy back then in sec.school,he never had the intention of going to Uni,but he went and came out with 2nd class,he now works as a banker in First Bank.
Opeloyemi(I should be thankful) was a smart student back then in sec school,he was among-st the student who wrote WAEC in ss1 and passed..He entered school before any of us and was given physiology,when he got to his third year, he had a problem with a lecturer and was expelled.He didn’t give up,so he processed to study Medicine abroad and he came out in flying color..
Azubuike(the past is your strength” or “your back is your strength” ) was the laziest of all student,when we are asked to uproot the weeds or cut grasses,he’s always the first to get tired,he sleeps during lectures,but as at today,he is in the Military Force..
Yelwa(Born at the time of abundance or wealth) was a beautiful,smart girl..She wanted to be a female aviator,but her dream was shattered in her face..She was married to an Alhaji (as her culture demands),she tried her possible best to run out of the marriage but to no avail..As I speak to you now,shes carrying the pregnancy of her 3rd child..
So my dear friends, being top of your class does not necessarily guarantee that you will be at the top of life.You could graduate as the best student in finance but it doesn’t mean you will make more money than everybody else. Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life. Never ask for a lighter rain, just pray to God for a better umbrella. – That is the attitude .Life is not about finding the right person, but creating the right relationship. It’s not how we care in the beginning, but how much we care until the very end !!!its often said that if you want to go fast you go alone,but if you want to go far in life you need people,mingle with healthy and productive people and always remember you cant do it alone.Some people would try to throw stones in your path,in fact some would,It depends on what you make with them; a Wall or a Bridge? Remember you are the architect of your life.Disappointment is indefinite, Often when we lose all hope and think this is the end,remember it’s just a bend, not the end.One of the basic differences between God and humans is, God gives, gives and forgives. But the Human gets, gets, gets and forgets. Involve God in all you do, Remember the Attitude of your Gratitude would determine your Altitude. “Sometimes we fight who we are, struggling against ourselves and our natures. But we must learn to accept who we are and appreciate who we become. We must love ourselves for what and who we are, and believe that the destination is more important as the journey. DON’T FORGET TO THANKFUL WITH ALL YOU HAVE and REMEMBER AM NOTHING BUT A REMINDER AND VOICE..#Aminahthinks..God bless us all.
