I'm currently under medication and my mind is restless.
Its just interchanging thoughts and randomly for that matter... several issues fill my mind now and its not worrying at the moment. They should be insignificant ... What is paramount right now is the question i want to put forward to my few and far between readers.
How far have you come in your journey of life and what is your current assessment?
Over the last weekend i embarked on a trip to Akure, Ondo state. The reason being the witnessing of the solemnisation ceremony of my college (University) buddy and Former Room mate. For over 3 years about 4 of us shared a flat. I guess he was the oldest. there were the other two guys; Gando and Gestapo. funny enough they shared the same name.
Fast forward 4 years after all of us were expected to have graduated.
and in the middle of July i get a phone call from him (we called him sonita). He proudly announced to me that he was getting married on the 4th of September and had chosen me as one of his grooms men.
As i sat in the Van taking me to Akure, i reflected on what i was about to witness. In truth, he seemed like he was going to be the first of us who was going to ditch bachelorhood.
The question now was have i ever given myself to the eventuality of this sacred institution?
In life's journey it is almost part of the rites of life for a long living man to aspire to take a wife who shall become his mate, and also it is the same for a woman.
Of my few readers, i guess that majority of you are young people. At one point or the other you all shall make that decision to take a life partner.
the truth is this in my opinion is the most sacred of rites as we pass through this world.
Death, which is inevitable is also one of those; to become dust again.
I question myself if my awareness has brought me to this very threshold.
If in truth, at my over twenty something years on earth i have come to the point where i ask myself; will you take a wife? Have you found one who your heart longs to merge with or to raise a family with?
I think about it, i hesitate.. are you thinking about it?
What stage are you on?
Have you found a partner?
These questions are several, they make up a list you might find in any marriage counselling medium.
But i ask you as one of you? It is not to urge you or pressure you? because in truth the question might not be about a life partner, it might be about you Position at work, evaluation of friendship and relationships, it could be about the need to become somebody or make a mark.
The most paramount thing is; ask yourself; where are you right now, and do you think you are meant to be there at this point in your life.
It took me months to evaluate, sometimes i would hesitate. But i finally am at the point where i know my position and and know where i should be (not in the marriage sense oh!).
I'm making a move now, with God in my heart and a past full of experience.
It changes from here on for me.
What about you?
Are you static or you really want to move?
