Dearest PT!

The last time I wrote a letter to you, I was addressing the fact that waiting/resting is not passivity. And that was in June, we are in September, and I think it is high time you read from me. Or honestly put; ‘I have too many thoughts to put under one heading/subject, so how about I just write a letter?’ Yup! Since, I have not had a ‘wisdom nuggets’ post up in a while, this will make up for the gap. [I hope]

When my birthday draws closer, I become exceptionally reflective. I like to think that I reflect a lot [like everyday]; but it’s double the measure during the month of September to October. So I have been doing a lot of reflection lately, and I want to share some in this letter. This reflection cuts across my growth and what needs improvement. I hope they resonate with you…..

HELP! I Can’t Rejoice With Those Who Rejoice…..

The invisible rolling of eyes. The palpitating heartbeats. The compulsion to pretend like the good news were not seen. The search for loopholes to ensure that the good news are facades or don’t last for long. The silent ‘God when will it be my turn’ conversations….are some of the reactions that a person struggling to rejoice with another may exude.

How do I know? I’m a survivor of this bondage. Yes, folks! It’s a bondage. Let’s call it as it is.

Romans 12 vs 15a says…..

Rejoice with those who rejoice….[NIV]

Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy….[MSG]

When others are happy, you should be happy with them…[ERV]

When we read Romans 12, we get the understanding of how a believer is supposed to relate with God and man. So when Paul was urging the Romans to rejoice with those who rejoice, he was just comprehensively expanding on the fruits of the commandment: Love thy neighbor as thyself. Rejoicing with those who rejoice comes from a place [heart] of true love. As an ex-non-rejoicer, [Pardon the impulsive coinage] I can boldly tell you that you have not known and experienced true love till you can rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn [part 2 coming soon].

Career Talk: Foundation Matter

Have you ever studied the work of a Mason or Bricklayer? Personally, I have not studiously taken note of their work, but I can say that whenever I see where a house is being built, there are two things I have noticed.

When the foundation of the house is being put together, it is not done in a day. [Disclaimer: I took note of this, back home in Nigeria, I have no idea how it works anywhere else]. I know the foundation building takes a longer time. Also, there are a lot of bricks and concretes that are used for the foundation building. You cannot expect to just make use of ten bags of cement for the building of a mansion, and the bigger the building that is envisioned, the more materials used for the foundation.

It is not a nouveau point knowing that the foundation of a thing really matters. Personally, I believe the foundation of a thing is very influential in the existence of a thing/experience. This is applicable in every sphere of a person’s life- physically, spiritually, emotionally, socially etc.

But today’s post will be focusing more on career and ambition wise. Continue reading
