DICTATE YOUR FUTURE LIFE NOW
With Odongo Odoyo
Today let me take a break from my usual jargon and some words of elders that will make life better. In many occasions, we tend to forget the wise teaching and wisdom that goes with it. We do not have time to sit down with the younger generation or is it the opposite that they grow-up with very little if any, knowledge of their expected future. It takes a humble and strong heart to share such words or teaching which would inspire the future generation. They may not be every-day teaching but a set of kept knowledge in the archive.” Never fight a man under grace, because the grace he carries will disgrace you. The death of a lion cannot be announced by a goat. When one’s goat gets missing, the aroma of a neighbour’s soup gets suspicious. The future belongs to the risk takers, not the comfort seekers. The words of the elders do not lock all the doors, they leave the right door open. A deaf husband and a blind wife are always a happy couple. Coca Cola only sold 25 bottles the first year and kept going, never give up. Let what you cannot do tear you from what you can do. A child who asks questions does not become a fool. The first person you think of in the morning or last person you think of at night is either the cause of your happiness or your pain. Be careful who you trust salt and sugar are both white. To make a different in life you don’t have to be brilliant, rich, beautiful or perfect, you just have to care. Kindness is like butter, it works best when you spread it around. The walls don’t only have ears, they also see. The leopard is beautiful, but has a bad heart. Everybody is nobody, trying to be somebody. Fake hair, fake nails, fake eye lash, artificial face and sometime fake behaviour, yet a woman will say she needs a real man.Never open the door for an armed robber, let him break it, it is part of his job. Sometime you have to play the role of a fool to fool the fools who think they are fooling you. One man’s food is every other man’s food just because one idiot refuses to eat it doesn’t make it poison. If you have a mom, there is nowhere you are likely to go where her prayers has not already been. The person that reads the terms and condition is the one who writes it. The chief, who doesn’t know what to say, says that his friend has said what he would have said. Just because you met them at the church doesn’t mean they are the ones, demons go to church too. And a foolish man tells a woman to stop talking, but a wise man tells her that her mouth is extremely beautiful when her lips are closed. My readers, l will continue with the remaining part but l trust that you have learned something.
