Life Diary ~ Waiting for the Bus.

Have you ever been at a bus stop waiting for the perfect bus? Literally! I’m not trying to go all shrinky and therapeutic on you. For real. I know I have.
I would wait and a bus would come by and I’ll be like:
Nah; I don’t like the faces in the bus OR
Nah; I won’t be comfortable…
Nah; It’s too rugged…
Nah; The music is too loud… Nah; It cost too much
Nah………………………..
I could go on and on.






In the midst of this waiting there is one permanent thing I notice, someone always gets on either of the buses that come by. Not everyone but someone always takes the plunge. That someone may not get to his desired destination, may not be comfortable, may have to pay extra but one thing is sure. That someone is one step of ahead of you. He took the step, left the spot and is on his way.
It takes a while before I realize. OMG! I have been here for 30 minutes. Has it been 3 hours, 2 weeks, 1 month, 6 months, 1 year, 4 years, or what? Aren’t you tired of waiting for the perfect bus? I know I am. 


Teekay you don’t get it:
·         I need to complete my degree.
·         I need to have a million naira to start the business plan.
·         I need to look prettier to be a makeup artist.
·         I need a better phone to keep in touch with my family and friends.
·         I need the Living Bible before I can get the rhema, KJV won’t cut it.

Or are you like me:
·         I need to own a camera to tackle this blogger life I’m about.
·         Or a good phone (iphone 6/ Samsung S6) won’t be bad.
·         Without my laptop, how am I supposed to blog right?
BTW, if you follow me on Twitter @tokonilarry or Instagram @tokonilarry you’ll know about my laptop issues.
·         I need a better platform (domain name), blogspot.com and all the wahala it’s is giving me won’t cut it.
And the list is long oh. Trust me!

Good news is; I eventually took the bus. That is why I’m writing to you at 6am on a blogger app on my phone instead of blogger dashboard on my laptop that is way easier. Truth is the perfect bus might never come. If it eventually does, you might be too weary to recognize it or just too tired from all the waiting.
Bishop TD. Jakes said “Instead of focusing on what you don’t have concentrate on what you do have and what can be created from those ingredients”
The perfect bus is here. It just takes perspective to recognize it.
Perspective is greater than reality. Yes!!!
Wow! I see you taking strides to hop on that bus. Go for it darling! You’ll be amazed.




Love Always,

Someone sent me a link to this and I opened it just out of curiosity. From the very first word. It had me captivated and I couldn't leave. It surprisingly even relates to my situation atm. God bless you.

This is insightful... I love it. The simplicity and the piercing provocation to action is masterful.
