Two stories.

So I used to wonder about people who do price too low. They price food items, they price with keke, they price with shoe menders. They wait no matter how much in a hurry for that 10 naira balance. Something that is clearly 50 naira, they will price 30 naira. I wondered this for a long time till i was on thier side of things lol.

There's this boy that lives around my area. He must have some kind of medical condition because he can't produce words correctly. When I first moved in, he saw me with my bag, he rushed to help. I tried to stop him but he insisted on helping me. See me o. I refused till a lady living in the compund I was about to move into told me to allow him else we'll keep dragging and he only means well. He helped me and lingered. I understood and gave him small money. He was very grateful. I came to discover that he normally comes to throw away the dirt of everyone without being asked. Sometimes he is paid, sometimes he is not but he keeps coming.

My point is; not everyone will start an Ngo.
Don't wait till you start an ngo.
Don't wait till Government holds empowerment programs. You can help in little ways in your community.
Sometimes you leave that ten Naira change. Sometimes you don't under price.
Sometimes make a purchase just to help.
Sometimes leave a tip.
Sometimes share.
When you can afford it, be of help.
Especially to people who are willing to work for it. They know they need money. They know they lack the means, knowledge or opportunity to make it. But instead of begging or just walking up to demand from you, they work, they offer a service. Be of help. Encourage them.
It's not stupidity. It's kindness.

I know some are dishonest and always will be
I know the world is an evil place
I know people can be ungrateful
But let's add increase to the light not the darkness.
The change really, actually starts with You.
It's our Home - our country, it's in our hands to help each other. Do Help.

Happy New week! If it's not starting happy, declare happiness and joy for yourself, yes, you have that power.

There lived a man who had financial difficulties. Business wasn't going well, despite how hard he tried. Then came a Sunday, he went to church as usual to worship. During the exhortation, the pastor shared the following scripture; Ecclesiastics 11: 1 Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days.


Her leg ached.
Her waist ached.
Her neck ached.
Dinma was all shades of uncomfortable and didn't know which part of herself to rely on. She turned her neck in quick rotations in an attempt to reduce the ache but it did her no good. She cursed within. This was supposed to be a fun and happy day, not one filled with aches from all parts of her body. The fact that She had been an usher did no good for her. Two hours is a long time to have been standing. She sighed resignedly. The girl beside her turned and smiled at her sympathetically, she managed a weak smile in return. The Security officials were still perambulating, disappearing and reappearing, she dared not sit. If she wasn't spotted from the podium, the officials would certainly see her. Only one person had been excused to sit because of illness and it had been announced to avoid display of smart stupidity.
She picked the ceremony booklet from her seat for the umpteenth time to check progress. There was still three pages …
