Firstly, there are so many things I hate; of which being taken for granted is chief amongst them. And that seems to be coming around a lot this week.
This was my original intention for this post. To cuss and fuss and moan until I have exhausted all the anger in me. Well that is not going to happen this time around. I am just going to say something short. I am thoroughly and totally exhausted. I have had a particularly stressful day today at work and this week in general has been exhausting. So please dear Lord, if you indeed love those whom you have created, do not send some more temptation my way because they wouldn’t know what hit them. Thank you for answers to my prayers. Amen.
Secondly, I am at that point in 2017 where I desperately need a time machine. Only, if I could turn back time to 2013 in particular. There are a lot of things I could have avoided that would have prevented the mess I find myself in called life in 2017. You see my actions and inactions are having a side effect on those I love. Everyone says I would have been a different person if I hadn’t taken those steps back in 2013 which brought me here now. While this might be true, at least I would have been able to sleep soundly. I would have been able to live my life without a guilty conscience.
But since I cannot perform that invention so quickly. All I have is a refrain from one of my favourite musicians to hold on to;
“Hush little baby don’t you cry, everything is gonna be alright,
Stiffen that upper lip up, little lady, I told ya
Daddy’s gonna hold you for tonight
I know momma’s not here, and you don’t know why
I can feel how you feel inside
It might seem a little crazy, little baby
But I promise
Everything’s gonna be alright…”
Please someone should be nice and send me an ice-cream. Sugar popcorn as well too. I have no idea where to get a proper cheap ice-cream in this Abeokuta.
