Hello everyone, how are you doing? How is July going for you? As promised in my last post, I will show up here at least once monthly in between working two jobs, studying for a Master’s in Public Health, and every other thing.
I am starting a monthly series tagged Heart to Heart with Perry on this blog. It would be real conversations and I am looking forward to our interactions.
In this first episode, I will be sharing my recent meditations on Life.
About two Sundays ago, I saw the news of the passing of Sound Sultan, a popular musician in Nigeria, it was a rude shock, and I was saddened by it, the last time I had felt the pain of loss so deeply was when Mrs. Ibidunni Ighodalo, a popular event manager passed. I was deeply saddened by that news. I had a similar experience also this time. I felt very tired and uninterested in any activity, but I thank God I was able to Bounce Back!
The question that was playing repeatedly on my heart was “What is the point of it all?”
But I know the point of it all. It is to do what we have been sent to do because you and I were specially sculpted to solve a unique problem in the world, Purpose. It’s the reason for our pain, joy, and difficulty. We sometimes experience these things because of those coming behind. So we are well equipped with the necessary skills or information to help them navigate their own difficult season.
Like I usually say, we must live before we leave. Staying conscious of our now, enjoying it, and rejoicing in it because our joy is in the process not necessarily in the result of our process. Think about it, immediately you receive what you have been working so hard on, you begin to desire new achievements. Those things never satisfy us. Having more money only makes us desire to have more money.
Also, we have to give people their roses while they can smell them. Tell them all the good stuff when it would mean so much to them, give gifts when they can enjoy it. I found the quote below quite interesting.
“Funny how we do not realize the true value and legacy of a living icon until they suddenly pass away. Truth is, there are many living legends among us, we just do not stop and take time to notice their worth until it’s too late.” – Germany Kent
We should definitely celebrate people while we have them with us. Celebrate yourself too. You deserve more credit than you are willing to give yourself. You’re doing amazing through all the challenges, you are not where you want to be but you are not where you used to be either.
I would like to read from you, how do you cope with the news of death? What keeps you going when you get tired of life?
