The Sides and Sizes of Success

Have you ever felt depressed after viewing videos and flipping different photos on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter? Have you ever wondered why every other person seems to have gone farther than you because of the things they post online? Do you see yourself as the last and the least among your peers based on your current struggles and standard of living? You are not alone, many of us are on this table.

However, the truth is, some of us have failed to realise that success is not always about growing faster and bigger, it is sometimes about growing deeper and stronger.
Most deeply-rooted plants do not bear fruits rapidly, but they grow stronger, last longer and eventually produce more fruits than shallow-rooted plants.

Don’t feel worthless because you are not producing the kind of results that others are producing. Not every form of growth is noticeable. Celebrate your small wins, your little effort may not attract loud ovation and accolades. Take solace in the fact that Gods approval is more important than men’s applause.

Don’t be jealous of the greener grass on the other side, focus on your field, water your ground with pride and engage grace for sustainable growth. Don’t get depressed by the growth and greatness of others, celebrate them and build-up faith for your greatness.

Rising first and rising fast cannot be compared to rising favourably and remaining fruitful. Don’t rush the process, don’t ignore the principles. Success happens in stages and cycles.

Keep developing and deploying your gifts, don’t be pressured by the progress of others. Comparing yourself to others based on their result is an insult to the investment of God in your life. We are all wired to win. Celebrate those who are winning.

Identify your grace, find your pace, occupy your space and run your race. You are not created to be better than anyone, God created you to be the best version of yourself.

No one is doing better than you. You are designed to be different. You are destined to make a difference. Your difference is your shade of excellence. Everyone has enough space and grace to win.

The fact that your growth is not striking
does not mean you are stagnant.
The fact that your belly is not protruding
doesn’t mean you aren’t pregnant.
Success has different expressions
and dimensions. You are pregnant with grace and greatness.

You are not lost or left behind. Focus on what God is doing within you, and not on the things happening around you.

Don’t settle too soon, keep grinding. Don’t settle too small, keep growing.

Every Woman is a Wonder

Every woman is a vibrant vessel.
A marvel the human mind cannot unravel.
Her heart is holy ground,
a world of warmth and worship,
and her body: a battleground
where bleeding is a blessing in disguise.
I’m in awe of all the pains and the storms
that a woman’s body can endure.
From period cramps to the pressure of pregnancy,
and the untold pains of childbirth.
Only a dead man will dare to assault this delicate dimension of divinity.
She is a tapestry of tenacity,
a symbol of strength and sweetness.
Her womb is an enigmatic empire
where nations and generations are nurtured
till they are fit to survive on planet earth.
Her breasts are a fountain of life,
the peaks of passion and nourishment.
She is everything a man is not,
and most times, she is everything a man has got.
Every woman is a wonder to behold,
a treasure that cannot be bought or sold.

Happy Women’s Day to all the amazing women in my life. I love you all.
