FEAR!!

symon
Fear affects our perception and decision- making

Do you have any fears..?So do I! Somebody somewhere described fear as an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. I will absolutely won’t squabble with them. Fear has made you who you are. Fear has crushed all your dreams…all your goals…all that you’ve been thinking of. Fear has also grasped the destiny you had. It has grasped it so snugly that it has made you to fear more than before! Fear has piled on fear and sometimes has made us fear the fear!
You’ve silently fallen in the blue ocean with that ‘skirt’. She is too charming such that “you doubt if she ever visits the toilet” But where do you begin? “How do I approach her? But she may go red such that I’m scared! Maybe I employ the aid of her best pal? No no, she also seems to be in the same bus as HER. But I keep dreaming of her! So what do I do? She comes from a well-off locale while I come from those bushes, raised by the power of porridge. I sleep on goat’s skin…she sleeps on queen-size pillows. Oh my! I was just forgetting her dad is a retired military!! I’d rather look for someone my caliber we match other than running away from her dad’s bullets!!” LAD! SHE COULD HAVE RESPONDED POSITIVELY BUT ‘FEAR ‘LET YOU DOWN!!!
You’ve just got some bulk of cash. You are in a dilemma. “Oh! I just got some cash. I’ve been dreaming of making that dream a reality…opening that business and start earning some cash. ‘They’ will now know who I ‘am…all over the villages” But there comes your nemesis…it’s there to curtail your dreams and you’ve got nothing to do to recoil from it. All that trek you’ve been through such that you’re now a step into the hub of your dreams. FEAR! “I may open it and then it may come to haunt me. It can be a complete disappointment… But I don’t have any skills to handle this venture I’m dreaming of. Ok, let me say I’ve opened it and it’s been a hit. How will I manage it? It may come to plunge in the near future!” Now you see. You see how FEAR is taunting what could otherwise have been a success tale. You’ve time-honored fear as part of your living and it won’t stop playing its fraction!
Fear has been the sheer and core factor behind our collapse. We feel like we have no prospect of making it to ensue. He could have healed from such a mere accident but FEAR took away his darling life. Fear has affected our decision making, the way we act and the way we react. Fear has influenced our perception of things in life. Fear of rejection made you not to approach that ‘skirt’. Fear has shattered you mental behavior. You feel insecure because of fear. You’ve got the correct measures from your mind, but you fear putting them into practice. Fear has been your downfall…plummeting your future like an avalanche… Making you lose the fruits you were destined to make a bite into!!
It’s time you lash out the ego from you. Dash past it and let it make no gulley on your destiny. Pretend you know nothing of it. Be daring and have the mood of a warrior at all times. You’ve got a nice destiny but unless you cast out you fears you will never see it!! You have your own fears, so do I! I’m in the process, so should you!!

When feelings go beyond this man’s medulla.

Here the much hyped English Premier League is back. We are approaching match week 6 and we’ve already seen records broken and set,history made from the already 5 matches now dead! This is gonna be a big match week with the London derby between the Blue Army and the Gunners set to kick off…a derby between two rival managers..a derby too interesting to watch..a derby to reckon. Gunners fans won’t forget the 6-0 demolition in favour of the Blues in the last seasons..a demolition that has left many Gunners fans without peace whenever the presence of a Blue fan is felt. And there also comes a single consolation from the Gunners..the Community shield defeat to The Blues plus the fact that the Blue Army is under siege.I’ve got few hopes for my Blue Army but would like to warn somebody out there that the Blue Army just shattered somebody Maccabi Tel-Aviv 4-0 in the first leg of the Champions league! Just a warning..be cautious coz history (6-0 demolition) may repeat itself! Looking forward to this weekend! LOL!..the photo below! A man who won’t  contain his feelings…calls himself “professor” LOL! ramps do nothing.Remember the dog that barks the loudest……….wish u know!!!!

Is This The Life I’m Meant To Live?

Maybe I'm running insane.
Maybe I’m running insane.

Sometimes I feel like the life I’m living is a complete breakdown nonetheless there comes a moment or two I cherish being extant. At times I come into asking myself ridiculous questions. “What If my mother did not give birth to me? Could I have been born somewhere else or could there be no me? When precisely I’m I going to bid farewell to this planet and if that day comes, will I be given even just a second to observe the response of the mourners? Who is going to ‘blubber’ the most and who is going to weep the least? How will my spouse/girlfriend retort? Will she attempt to jump into my grave to start the voyage with me? Seems like I’m running insane, aren’t I?” All these inane questions will for a time ring in my skull. I will even giggle loud at myself at sometime.
“One day I’m going to be that gentleman I’ve been dreaming all these days. Will I be Bill Gates? Obama? No! I want to be that hotel boss I’ve been nostalgic about all day long! But still I can make those punch lines, why can’t I make it in front of that mass? No, I feel like I can make it in front of the cameras and do the news briefing. Yeah! They call it broadcasting! I want the masses to see my face and heed my accent day after day! Should I carry on with my freelancing and blogging? This online kind of obsession? I tried it and I can see a destiny out of it! But I need adequate time out too! So what do I do? What do I opt to? Perhaps not a hint! But I have to make to all those dreams a kind of integrity. So where do I start?” All these will also sphere in my skull. I will even giggle loud at myself at sometime.
So is this life doing justice to me? Predicaments all day long. Dilemma 24, 7,365 so that I feel like I need a bit of psychoanalysis. I’m the only piece they are looking up on. I’m the only piece they have their eyes on. Some look upon me for role modeling but do I make the grade? I’m I underrating myself? This is the hub of my living after such a hike. Nemesis, Isn’t it? Hey guys, poke into this and tell me something!

The Sorcerer… I Wonder What You Gain Out Of This!

(Based On a True Story)
Ouch! The pain all over my body again? Just like the morning of the other day! How come it was early dawn and I was having a hell of feeling like that? What the hell was happening to me? The whole of my joints under siege! Jesus Christ! I couldn’t even make a movement from my bed and I could hear my mum calling out! “Ye…s, but I couldn’t barely finish out the reply. What another hell! My voice had gone hoarse too! Never had I experienced that throughout my life! Just heard stories of such sort but I thought it was a holy shit of misconception. I tried my best and bend from inside my blanket head down facing the pillows. I made a short prayer.
“I fail to understand you since yesterday! You’ve just decided to provoke me these days, haven’t you? You are such a nuisance! You take years to respond my calls and you wake up such late? Can you please wake up and do your part! Or is it this shit of blanket that’s keeping you in here? Unless I strip it off, my irate mum who had just stormed the room roared out. She forcefully dragged away the blanket I was in cover with but what a hell! I’m out of my under wears! My mum had hastily vanished out at the speed of lightning! She seemed to not have understood what was happening: neither did I understand the same!
Unbelievably, I found my missing under wears under my bed! Out of rage, I burnt them. I saw my mixed up mum sitting on our doorstep. She called me and I went and sat just next to her. She asked me what was going on. I failed to give back an answer because I myself did not understand what was going on! This was the second day such happened! However, I narrated to her all what I had been experiencing throughout my sleep. She was really a mixed up woman who seemed eager to know what was going on. “Oh my poor son! You are under siege from the dark forces…the sorcerers! And they are not from far. Just round here! We need to seek urgent resolution from Father Francis right away. We late and this develops to a lethal issue out of control. Go and change your clothes we go right away” my mum ordered. Out of rage and fury at the spell of them…sorcerers… I decided to firstly find a direct resolution but in style. I told my mum I was not accompanying her out of accusation that I was sick. She decided to leave me back home.
“Hey you there! You unscrupulous fool! You better listen to me right now because this is my first and last alarm!” I had begun to bark to everyone all through the villages that crack of dawn. “Do you really have work to do? How will you hover around in the night disconcerting above suspicion beings all throughout? What do you gross out of that? Yesterday I woke up under my bed instead of on my bed, totally stripped off and with mud throughout my legs. Not only that, I felt throbbing pain all over my body with blisters all over my palms. I was told you labored me on your farm without pay! How could you do such immoral deeds? Nevertheless, today I woke up just exactly in the same state. Pain all over my body. I’m innocent, aren’t I? The why me? Imagine my under wears stripped off my body and dropped under my bed! What does that mean? Don’t you have work to do instead of flying around all night disturbing people’s sleep? You are cursed! Ok, let me then warn you today since that was my main agenda. If you haven’t received a thorough fight throughout your life, then I bet you are just a step closer to get one! I’m sure you are listening to me. Come again tonight and I’ll show you what a fighter I am! You’ll never forget that time in your life. I’m welcoming you officially tonight…not those non-official visits you make always. I hope you’ve heard me right. Wicked fool!” I roared to the villages.
The next day was one I won’t forget for life! I woke up to a horror of mess! Mess like hell! The pain in my body was unbearable. I got sense and what I smell was hell! The room was stinking like a decomposing dead cat! I thought I had been farting to myself throughout the night. Holding and squeezing my nose tight, I decided to gain courage and see what was wrong. Oh my, the thousands of flies buzzing in the room was quite a horrendous scene…and then I saw what I did not expect! Huge mountains of human stool on every corner of my room! Mind you, they used my only best pair of shirt and trouser as tissue paper! They tore it into pieces! I almost shouted out loud but then, I found it nonsense. I had caused this myself. Only if I knew, I would not have gone aloud shouting to the sorcerers throughout villages yesterday!
A knock on the door brought me back to my senses. I opened the door with panic only to realize that it was mum and my older sister on the doorway waiting to know what was going on. Their palms covered their noses. “What the hell stinks from your room?” my mum asked. I ushered them the way in to witness for themselves. Just before they got deeper, they came out at the speed of light. My sister initiated a small laughter which caught the attention of mum. They exploded into a spirited laughter. I chose to join them. We looked like fools. Three lunatics. “I learnt from your sister that you went round the villages roaring to people like an insane. You provoked the dark powers…the sorcerers. That’s not how you deal with them. Today is Sunday and we are going to get resolution for this. Father Francis told me he will be accompanying us here after service for prayers and seeking of resolution. Go put on your only remaining pair we go to church. You are lucky they didn’t see it. Next time, don’t take action from your hands” my mum advised me.
I decided to accompany them to church to see the man of God. I was a furious and mixed person. Fortunately, resolution was found. I can’t stand with sorcerers throughout my life! But there is still a question that I need an answer from them. WHAT DO THEY GAIN OUT OF THIS?

Controversy??

Hey guys help me out!!According to my understanding,a look-alike is a person who closely resembles another person in their looks.I’m currently facing such a hard time being treated to a look-alike with a certain Nigerian artiste called Davido.Frankly I’ve been knowing less about this artiste but not unless people started commenting about my resemblance with this man did I kept myself busy to exactly browse this artiste.There is something I hate,..being given a new name I don’t like & which I’m not used to.Mind you I’m not exactly resembling this man!Keep a close look at the close ups below and give me your views!Really is there any resemblance?Let me know before I tell my “branders” what to do.

A time for appreciation!

They say,you give appreciation to whoever touched your life most.I take this chance to do so.When there is a time I smile most It’s as a result of seeing the photos of these generous beings and imagining where my life would be right now without them;where my goals would have gone without them.I will always not get exhausted to tell them how they have jerked back my goals which were almost crushing to the ground!They deserve my gratitudes.Thank you Mama,your great husband,& the lovely kind-hearted Kennedys!Thank you Mr.Samson.Your mentoring brings what you aim.
You are always in my heart and always will I smile because of you!
May THE ALMIGHTY reward you back in abundance!Amen.
Heartly appreciation from:
Symon.
