ENIGMATIC ARTISANS ……………we just can’t do without them July 7, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — charmingff @ 6:52 am

Last saturday I had to attend my Toastmaster’s meeting though I was suppose to be at a friend’s wedding,I ddint want to miss the wedding and dissapoint my dear friend , but I had to follow my passion first.

But in otherwords I couldnt even think of attending my friend’s wedding earlier enough , this was because her so called tailor who was supposed to make my aso – ebi for me had not delivered it to me , we had an appointment for friday before the wedding day , and he promised heaven and earth that he was going to deliver , he even charged extra because he claimed he was going to do express Job .
I waited patiently on friday , my friend the bride has been checking on him to make sure he doesnt disspoint me , and she kept calling to give me the assurance that he was going to deliver the material before the close of business , poor babe she needed me by her side on her wedding day looking radiant in the SAID uniform ASO – EBI as my people will call it ,because the man refused to deliver , I got the courage to go for my Toastmaster’s meeting the next morning , and he still promised to deliver for 9a.m at the venue of the meeting , Whaoooooo, I must have really trusted the guy , or maybe I gave him a benefit of doubt that being the first time he would treat me right to crave for his service again .

Unfortunately for the fortunate me , I was disspointed , his phone was switched off for some time , the phone was on and off , inbetween the meeting I would dial his number , and damn my credit finish (oopps!!!) , and my pretty friend and club member gave me her phone to call , because she was concerned , I called and behold he asked me to come over to an unknown place to get my material , I was disspointed , After the meeting I wanted to head straight for my choir reharsals , going for the wedding was no more an option , the tragedy of showing up without my own uniform like someone who didnt have money to purchase one .

Why , why is there so much dissapointment on the part of these people , tailors , hairdressers , mechanics , drycleaners , shoe cobblers, plumbers,blacksmiths the list is endless , and I kept asking why ,is it that the number of people doing this job is not enough? , or they get so much job than they can bear and end up disspointing their customers ?,Though there are people who do this Job on the high class range , they charge more and do it right e.g tiffany Amber , out of africa , Honda place and the likes of very big fashion houses and the host of others,but not everyone can afford them .One thing I notice is that some of them never say NO to an incoming Job , reason is because they Just want to make money , and with these the professionalism of their service drops , why would anyone bite more than he/she can chew ?,we all cant do these Jobs by ourselves and that is the reason why some people have chosen that line of profession and are empowered to deliver , the ironical part is some who are even deligent end up doing very bad Jobs for their customers , have had friends who complain of tailors who destoryed their materials ,mechanics who end up causing more havoc to cars than repair , What!!!!

But does it looks like no one has an answer to this issues , NO there is an answer if you ask me , people need to check themselves , if you know this is your line of business and profession,do your Job flawlessly , no one is perfect but dont bite more than you can chew , try and do what you have the capacity of doing and do it well , what is worth doing at all is worth doing well , and if you know you are into good enough continue to learn but not at the expense of your poor customers who are ready to let go part of their small earnings , these people should take their Jobs as services to humanity,

How do you want people to see you and the Job you are doing ?, do you even have the fear of God to treat people right ?, Is service to your fellow human being all about money ! money ! making money , No its worth more , what goes around comes around , if you do it right it would come back very right to you , but if you do it bad it would come back and hit you worse , need I say more , lets all do it right and if you are oportuned to tell them , because we cant do without them in our lifes ,shout it out DO IT RIGHT .

Just me

Be all you can be July 2, 2009

The power of life and death is in the hands of God almighty ,this am very sure of because of recent happenings ,
Its so sad Michaeal Jackson is dead , he gave his all to his music , he had so much fan , there is no kid on the surface of a civilized country who didnt know MJ , I had this firend who loved him so much and always wanted to meet him ,despite all odds ,MJ was still loved by almost but not all ,he was a Musician , A father , A philantropist , A friend , A lover ,the list is endless ,But I took a keen interest in him after his death,I liked his songs so much,but not until his death i didnt take so much time to study his history ,from his childhood to adulthood till his death ,

As I was studying , I found out that ,he had so much ordeal while he was growing up that was of great detriment to his future , my search made me understand that the MJ is very shy and timid ,his father used to beat him when he was a little boy , he abused him and told him he had a big nose , he father molested ladies , and his brothers did this also , but all through this MJ didnt get involved , I blame his parents a lot for his death , I may not be 100% correct but I feel so much pity for MJ even now that he is dead , people are saying so much , stories here and there , some blame him for changing his skin colour not knowing he used to have a disease called UNIVERSAL VITILIGO , his love for children made people milk money from him claiming that he molested little boys , though he wasnt shown so much love when he was a kid , all these affected him phycologically , if his parents and his siblings will rethink ,they ddidnt manage the star/Talent in him very well , they themselves had so much ISSUES ,he grew up not even liking ladies after seeing all the father and brothers have done , he withdraw from the world after he had been bastardised by their stories ,he didnt have true friends , real friends ,he lived his life alone only with the help of maids and servant , but in the midst of all the crises going on within the POP star , any new song he released had a super message to pass across , nice lyrics ,videos that will sweep you off your feet , he did all he can for his music and people , but he got so little from the world ,he lived so much inbalance life , he had so MUCH OF MUSIC and VERY LTTILE OF a fullfilled LIFE ,

Whose friend , wife ,husband, sister , brother , daughter , son , cousin ,acquintant are you today , are they giving you so much while you are giving less of a little ?
On one hand, we must not be harsh and hard. But on the other hand, we must not be weak and excessively soft. We must not be irritable and impatient, flying off the handle and acting out of emotion.We must not be so mild mannered that we become doormats and whipping posts for those who will take advantage of us if we give them a chance. There is a time to be patient and forbearing, and there is a time to be firm and decisive. There is a time to “be not angry,” and there is a time to display righteous indignation. It is wisdom to know when to do which.but above all BE ALL YOU CAN BE ,
Rest in Peace MJ

 

COMPLETETION or RELATIONSHIP ? June 23, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — charmingff @ 9:58 am

this is something have been pondering about , what is a relationship ?
A relationship is normally viewed as a connection between two individuals, such as a romantic or intimate relationship, or a parent-child relationship. Individuals can also have relationships with groups of people, its about personal growth , people coming together to explore their diffrent worlds and areas of expertise and to transfer those worlds and expertise into themselves , if we dont undeerstand this we we will loose out on the best of relationships ,it needs to be built and nutured so even if the relation is no more in the relationship you would have learnt or gained something , our souls have different worlds , we dont go into the relationship to say this is what we are ,we go into it to explore the worlds of others and to grow and to develop as we interact with one another , hence we begin to learn more things about ourselves and develop ourselves to become a better person ,it is going into a new world then binding takes place.
So completetion is finding completetion inside of us,

 

JUST DOING ME

Filed under: Uncategorized — charmingff @ 9:04 am

Hmm I thought I could really write everyday but , really have been reading instead of wrtiting , and while reading have been getting inspirations ,even a slight sound can get me inspired , have been learning as well , because if you want to do something well you have to learn from people who have done it perfectly , really have been busy or maybe , have been thinking , or rather have been tied up trying to build my passion , but I think my best is not good enough , really I can rate myself , and that is something everyone needs to do , tell yourself the truth about you , if you know you are doing well , give yourself a hug , pamper yourself , if you know you are doing otherwise retrace your steps , the painful thing is to know the truth and not do it , which is very possible , but one thing for sure is dont comdem yourself before God , dont go to God thinking he wont listen to you , probably because you have done something wrong and you know it, no one has a perfect life , you might be looking for it , but sure you CANNOT be perfect, so go to GOD like a child that you are , talk to him like your friend ,refrence him and draw him closer like a spouse .
OK yesterday was father’s day , and to all father’s and father’s to be , I pray you’ll find God’s light, And hold it in your hearts,God guide you with his grace to be a man that you are , a head/Leader that you should be , Its a Man’s world , hmmm ,did i just say that , but it revolves round we WOMEN …………

stay with me ………the voice needs to be heard

How on Earth May 7, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — charmingff @ 7:27 am

I went to the bank yesterday , and there was so much traffic , this because of fuel scarcity , it was so bad , it took me almost 1hr.30mins to get back to my office , which was too much compared to if there was no traffic , and there on the bike I was thinking, why ! oh why! this scarcity has been on for a while , it got resolved and now I dont know why there is scarctiy again ,
I looked up and wondered why is there so much strife in this part of the world ?, why is there so much struggle? why do we have to struggle to get everything , but not everone suffers , people get rich , verywell Good , some people become poor hmmm thats not good at all , there is so much strife going on in the world , each part of the world are faced with various issues , problems they have to deal with from time to time , if I ask this question from now to infinity I wouldnt get a clue nor even an answer ,some say the answers to all the questions in the world is in the Bible , well thats not a lie , to a reasonable extent the BIBLE been known as the word of GOD is true and answers a lot of questions but not questions like why is there sacrcity of fuel that we produce by ourselves ? or why did a guy become a gay ?
Anyway i wondered this way till late in the night when I closed from work , because the traffic was mega , meaning it was real standstill , Oh God where is the hope for a better life , where is the hope for a better society or country , where is the hope that things can only get better , why is it that though they say that it will get better and in the quest for making it better , we have to go back so backward to be able to move forward ,
And I concluded God has the answers to all the questions , we have really trusted ourselves so much than to lean on him , maybe he is fighting against us becasue we are not sentistive , but now we are talking of millions of indiviuals now created by one mnan , What a man ? What a God ? but you know what after all said and done , we live the life GOOD OR BAD and we all DIE .
I thought in my heart , that the irony of life is that we all owe death a debt that we have to pay someday , be ye who live in the best mansion in the world or white house or even in the slum , someday you will die , the good people die in a bad way , and the bad die in a bad way as well , this I think it’s unfair but who am I to question the answerer to all questions ?, why will a good person die in a motor accident or ,die of sickness, or some other type of death , anyway, I know God has his ways , I just pray he grants us a life of ease , to live with ease all the way till we go to meet him .

cheers

Everything to me April 23, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — charmingff @ 10:56 am

I got to work today and the song I really wanted to listen to is so funny , anyway something I like about the song is the lyrics its says ” you better think wise , before you faulter be wise , hmmm to me it sounds strong , I think the song tells me alot about what am going through now , imagine I really dont want to stop updating my blog but am always too busy ,
things have been pretty Good , God is aligning me with my heart desires and destiny , its just that know trusting GOD takes a lot of time to master , there are times you want something and its seems it will never come , you have even imagined yourself using the thing or with something/someone you want , for me my imagination works very well , but there is this song I like so much “Everything” by Fred – Hammond
some part of the song says
My future and my history
My freedom and my liberty
My strength my joy
My life, my peace
Oh Lord You’re everything to me

When I felt lost and alone
You came and changed my story
On the pages of my life
You have revealed Your glory
Oh Lord You’re everything to me

I really like the part of the song that says “ON THE PAGES OF MY LIFE YOU HAVE REVEALED YOUR STORY , that is so powerful
God is all have got , my one ,my all ,my love ,my life
hope same applies to you make him your everything ,because you have got nuttin to loose

cheers
Funmi

A VOICE TO BE HEARD: Because my voice needs to be heard
