Yes, darlings, don't forget to be AWESOME!
BTW last night I started working out again after some months. I've been too BROKE to register in a gym. When I was in Surulere I used to go to the Stadium every morning to work out but there's no where I can do that now. And the weight just keeps piling up (is that correct English, does weight pile up? I think not.)
So yesterday I decided in the evenings I'll drive down to an estate nearby, park the car, walk, jog, run... do whatever. They've also got a park in the estate for residents, but as I'm sure nobody will come and say "do you live here? Show me your house in this estate" (I hope not sha. LOL) I will also work out and do aerobics in the park as I can't do that on the road. It'll also be an opportunity to meet people as I always see some very nice looking people hanging out/working out there. My only hope is that I'd have enough energy in the evenings when work is done.
Already when I was brisk-walking last night *B called and I told her where I was and what I was doing. She frantically said
"Nwando shake your bumbum, shake your bumbum very well as you're walking, there are many single men in that estate."
ROTFL! Hahaha. I nor get power abeg. How am I to brisk-walk and jog and simultaneously roll my waist and shake my borrom? LOL.
In today's devotional (Our Daily Manner) Pastor Chris writes about a woman known as "The Ugliest Woman Alive" who was born with a birth defect that has left her weighing about 27kg even as an adult. Yet this woman, Ann Velasquez who weighs 27kg, has no body fat, no muscle tissue, unpadded feet, prone to stress fractures, blind in one eye with limited vision in the other has gone ahead to become one of the great motivational speakers of her time and a book author. She's also a public speaker and an anti-bullying activist. She says that God has blessed her with the greatest blessing of her life, which is her syndrome.
WOW! So basically what to many others would have been a curse, for herself she has made a blessing. What for many others would have been an obstacle, for herself she has made it her breakthrough. What to others would be a limitation, to her is an instrument of elevation.
As I imagined the difficulties, challenges and limitations she naturally has and yet lives a fulfilled life I inevitably asked myself; So Nwando what is your excuse?
I challenge you to ask yourself that question this morning; WHAT IS MY EXCUSE?
Have an AMAZING week ahead beautiful people. Remember to stay awesome!
