ImageYou know when you just have that feel in you to write something??  Well, maybe you don’t have that feel, but I do, once in a while and this is one of those times. So I’ve been going through a stage of growth, I think and development in my life, and I’ve come to realize that there are so many things that are over rated, so many things that are underrated…. in fact to be honest I think the problem is just a case of misplaced priorities. What is important to you? Lemme tell you like a five min story. When I was much younger, I was a helpless romantic child! Lol, all I wanted to do was grow up and get married, of course I wanted to have a job and all that, but getting married and most importantly falling in love was like my number 1 goal. Funnily enough, because of that, I refused to date while I was in sec school, told me myself I wanted it to be just perfect. Well, to cut the long story short, I ended up with the wrong person, twice if I might  add! Lol and do u know  what I got from those experiences? You need to get your priorities right!.. I had always wanted God to rule my relationships, but I would always go to Him, after I had made up my mind on what I wanted, and not before, and we all know that’s not the way it should be. My number 1 priority was fall in love, it really didn’t have anything to do with the people themselves, it was just me. I was blinded by my desires to be in a relationship, I didn’t see what was staring me in the face! 😦 So now, I like this guy (have liked him since God knows when! ) but for once, I told God bout it first before I even let myself consider it, and do u know what? I’ve come to this point where, even though I still like the guy, my mind isn’t centred on whether or not we date. Because I have my priorities straight! And even though I still want to get married ( not letting go of that!) it’s not my number one goal in life! I have other things to think about, and other things to look at. I have my priorities right!  Don’t get me wrong  o! I’m not saying in the past all I’ve ever wanted was to be a house wife, nooooo,  no way! I’ve wanted to do other things, but because I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with my life, what I wanted to become and all that, instead of going through a period of searching and seeking and trying to understand what what my calling was, I just told myself God would reveal it in His time, and I shifted my attention and priorities, to  something that I knew I could see at that moment,( if that makes any sense!) But anyways, what I’m simply saying in this rant is this. You should have your priorities right. Know what is important, to you and for you, you are not your neighbor, don’t take his priorities as yours! When you have your priorities right, it’s easy to stay focused on what u want in life, and what you need to do to achieve it! I’m not sure if this makes sense, or of it’s even helpful to anyone, but like I said, it’s just one of those moments when I just want to write so I did! 🙂
