Hey darlings, I know I usually post around 12noon, 1pm but something beyond my control happened and I am sorry about the late post but here I am and so is Talk Thursday
Like I said in my last two posts on ‘Talk Thursday’, this segment is open to everyone and a reader decided to send in a post I really like. It got me thinking and I’m super glad I can share her post here for you all to read and tap into.
I recall a training session I handled a while back, I asked my colleagues at work, “if you weren’t here, what would you be doing? I mean, what if you came to work and for some reason, your password had been recalled and you had been sacked over night, what would you do? They began to look at me like I was asking the type of question WAEC asked me in 1999. Hmmm, I don’t know oh, Na Wa oh, I have never thought about it, come to think of it, I just wake up and come to work, some even said God forbid bad thing”. These were the responses I got. Every one had something to say, either verbal or non verbal. When they were done answering in different ways and forms, I simply said every one was created to excel at a particular thing. When you are alone, in your space, having your me time. ( I’m hoping we all have our reflection time) what truly does our heart and mind tell us we should be doing? What does our heart nudge us into doing. It’s that particular job/ activity we are most happy with and In many cases, all things been equal, we make a successful living from( all things being equal). I know a few people who have their boots Laced always, ready to go and they are on top of their game. These are people who read different courses in the university and some of them veered off into things they found their passion in, things that make them happy and yes, they are excelling. I’m truly delighted to share these people with you.
