‘What are you doing with the alphabets?’ asked people.
‘I don’t know’ said I.
And I indeed did not know!
From A-Z, everyday I picked up my phone (yes, I started writing with my phone) to write, I’d feel a little afraid because I would think of how the previous alphabet was simply the best I could have done and how I never could top that.
But I think topped it every time. Life is easy to understand if you’re willing to believe in its simplicity. I always want to learn from my experiences in life; sour or sweet, and from this series I have learned
- To trust the bigger Man inside of me: like I said, until I picked up my phone every day, I didn’t know what I’d write; not even the topics. I used to form the topics as I wrote and I gave myself little or no time to think deep about them. I’d just type the first word and the stories will develop.
- To see the potential in everything. Can you imagine that I wrote something substantial on letter X??? Wow. I’m never looking down on anyone again. If only we would try harder on people who seem impossible to teach; to love; to care for; to bless… We would definitely see great results.
- People care! Thank you to all the people who read and commented; and to those who didn’t comment but just read and to those who referred others; you guys always made my heart race and my face smile.
I called Debo this night and as we spoke, I told him that with the end of the alphabet series, I felt like someone who just lost her job and was now trying to find her way.
It’s daunting to try something different when what you’re doing works fine. But try, I will – I have no choice anyway. What use is life if it’s same old hum-drum living? Of what use is a talent if it becomes routine?
I’m currently writing my exams now and I honestly need a no-brainer scheme for the articles I’ll write this period.
I’ll probably stick with writing on the primary colors (as advised by Debo) or something else.
