Thank God for my shoes – they fit.
I woke up one day and I realised
that there were many things about my life I was not satisfied with
or better still, there were challenges that were threatening my soul.
I then asked myself:
“Why should anyone envy me and want to be in my shoes?”
They don’t know how far I’ve come,
know what lies ahead of me,
or how dissatisfied I get with myself from time to time.
People don’t know the troubles that you’ve had;
or the price you had to pay to get to where you are.
All they want to know is that they wish they were like you.
But why should you wish
you were in anybody else’s shoes
when you hardly know how they fit?
When you’ve worn your shoes for a while,
they take the shape of your feet
and align to the way you walk.
If you were to wear my shoes,
you will not be comfortable in them.
So I stopped wishing that I was in someone else shoes
because they might not fit.
Instead, I thank God for my shoes,
because they fit!
I have learnt to be the best in whatever I do,
and I know that no-one can replace me
anywhere or in any sphere.
I am an original!
And I know for a fact that
my God is not in the cloning business,
He makes originals!
So, make the most of today;
Do your best in whatever you do;
And most of all,
Be the best you can be.
Besides, you have this beautiful life to live ONLY ONCE!
So, LIVE IT TO THE FULLEST!!!
