We learn everyday, every time and from everything. Most times I learn from “quick encounter” with people. Below is one of the various things I have learnt in just a glance.
As we drove past meat-market, Abakaliki, we stopped to pick up few things and there was this young girl shouting in pain as a result of the hot water being used on her hair… Yes she just finished making her hair! Looking at her shout I was forced to laugh.
“You should be saying sorry to me nah” she said
“Lol! You wanna look beautiful… So, you must undergo the stress and never except sorry. Sorry anyway”
This little encounter with her taught me a lesson. She wanted to look good but she must discipline herself and undergo the pains and stress of looking good.
There is no road to success that is simple and easy… To get something good, you must pay the price, it might be painful, people may laugh at you but it doesn’t stop you!
I laughed at her but tomorrow someone will tell her how beautiful her hair makes her look. They may laugh at you but don’t mind them, you may feel the heat but always know that the fire will not burn you… You may feel the breeze buy always know that the ocean will not get you drowned!
Oh! Perhaps I am supposed to give you a bible passage to make it more clear!
“So don’t get tired of doing what is good. Don’t get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time.” Galatians 6:9 (NLT)
Nothing good has ever come easy, great and successful people are simply ordinary people with lots of determination. I hope this blesses your life.
God Bess you!
