Wow! My people, we are now in the month of February. Just like play, like play, January has ended. And you know what? No..., the month did not in any way seem long or drag. Instead, it just went by very fast…..at least for me.
So, tell me what happened or did not happen to you last month.
Did you just sit, and watch January go by, just like that? Or you bullied yourself into doing one or two or more things? Did you grab your whole self and as usual go with the flow to here, there and everywhere? Or did you actually plan, focus and follow through?
Whichever one that you did or let’s say maybe just happened to you - please, hail yourself; there is really no need to complain even if you are disappointed in yourself.
Come on, is a new month not upon us already? Brand new 28 days can make anybody excited, particularly, when you know you will celebrate Valentine’s day and also elect the man (not to worry there is no woman aspirant) that will rule your country for another four years.
Anyways, back to what I was talking about before Val’s day and election came into the matter.
......so yes, there is no need to complain. Actually, at this point, if you ask me and because this is what I always do; beginning of the month is a good time to check where you are at on what I call the “doing-the-to-do” scale.
And a quick assessment of how you are doing-the-to-do should be helpful.
So go on. Go on and introduce questions to yourself.
Are you letting the fear of failure make me curl up when you should be out there taking your shot?
Are you actively seeking opportunities?
Are you ready to seize opportunities as soon as possible, where they present themselves?
Are you waiting for other peoples’ validation to fuel your drive to go for what you want or what you want to do?
Are you, are you…..?
Okay. So, sit up straight now.
You need to hear this. In fact, I am only just holding myself back from yelling it.
No one (no one)'s gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong.
Yes. It's true!
No one's gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong.
Oh, and also yes, I actually took this words from a song that is swirling in my head even right this minute as I write.
And this particular song, since I woke up today has been blasting in my head!
Mind you, I did not party yesterday.
Or......hold on a minute, did I?
Beautiful people, Happy new month to you😊
Let’s meet here again,
P.S. Find the video to Ace of Base 'The sign' song on this link.
Below is the lyrics: “The sign” was done by Ace of Base and was part of their 1993 album called The Sign
[Intro] Whoa, oh, yeah
[Verse] (Ah) I gotta new life You would hardly recognize me I'm so glad How could a person like me care for you? (Ah) Why do I bother When you're not the one for me Ooh, is enough, enough?
[Chorus] I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes I saw the sign Life is demanding without understanding I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes I saw the sign No one's gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong... But where do you belong?
[Verse] (Ah) Under the pale moon For so many years I've wondered who you are How could a person like you bring me joy? Under the pale moon Where I see a lot of stars Ooh is enough, enough?
