Its another beautiful day and I think GOD for the gift of a new day. Life is something we all should be grateful for no matter what we are passing through. I have noticed that asking people about what they are doing or want to do with their lives tend to drag down the conversation. But if the conversation is about fashion, food,movies or music they are so excited and absorbed. Ask them about their ambitions and the light in their eyes goes out. People don’t want to talk about their career, school or anything about their future. This is really sad. Why should talking about your life be a boring topic? It should be the most interesting thing to talk about. This boils down to youths not discovering themselves and the reason for their existence. And it leads to lack of direction which cripples the entire system. This sort of problem is typical of a society like ours that makes us believe that doing certain things when we are young results in future happiness and fulfillment. For example, most Nigerian youths think or believe that ” oh well, I will go to school,study, graduate, do my compulsory NYSC & get a job, build a house, get married etc. The mentality that the society owes us after playing our part by going to school, we feel the society owes us a happy life. But we know that life has never been that easy especially now except we want to dwell in self deceit. Again, being busy doesn’t necessarily mean that you know what you are doing. Yeah! You are an undergraduate, very good… You have a job, very interesting… But my question is, why are you doing what you are doing? Why will you be tomorrow? How about 10years? Are you doing what you want to do? I ask these questions because it seems to me like most people are moving blindly believing that somehow, things will work out in the end. But should we be playing games with this one life we have? Well, I leave us with that question. Its Friday again. THANK GOD ITS FRIDAY… Do have a most peaceful and fun filled weekend. Be Enlightened! Be Inspired!! Be Motivated!!!
