Dear Aunty Temilolu,
I always end up speechless whenever I read your articles. They are awesome and so correct. Your column has made me stronger and more determined to toe the right path. I also share your messages with other girls. Thanks a lot. I wish guys too could realize there’s more to a girl than sex and I also wish there was death penalty for rapists so the male folk would stop messing up with the lives of so many girls and the female folk generally.
Dear Aunty Temilolu,
Thanks so much for creating a safe place for we girls in the desert of the snarl of pre-marital sex. Our God Is Your Strength! I hope to be like you very soon.
My darling, precious, glorious, dignified, world-famous and heavenly celebrated Nigerian sisters,
3. Start developing your childhood dreams (Contd.)
May you discover your life’s purpose in good time and be phenomenally great in Jesus mighty name. Amen! As I mentioned last week, a lot of our childhood dreams and wishes were actually planted in us by God as our seeds of greatness. What baffles me however is that later in life most people never scratch the surface of what was divinely invested in them to make them great. God has planted seeds of greatness in each of us and His plan for our lives is for those seeds to sprout, grow and blossom. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t realize this, least of all know how to go about nurturing the seed. While in high school, I remember my mates and I sharing dreams of becoming world leaders, scientists and so on. But quite frankly, after many years, a lot of us are nowhere near these beautiful dreams.
Unfortunately, a teenager’s passion to explore life as it unfolds more often than not out rightly distracts or even kills these dreams. Once a teenager falls in love, he/she has 90% tendencies of becoming obsessed with who he/she is in love with. Now, while an obsessed with love teenager is trying to grapple with his/her studies, where’s the space in his/her heart to pursue tall dreams especially with parents who are too busy to know what fills the teenager’s head and heart? I pray a lot of you don’t end up blaming your parents in future for not helping to bring out the best in you. This is because later in life when your skills have become outdated and useless because they were never cultivated, you may forever wonder what you ever achieved with your potentials and live in regrets.
Too many marriages are unhappy and breaking up because a married woman suddenly wakes up one day bored with life and suddenly remembers her childhood dreams and says she wants to go into politics or some other endeavor and her husband says NO! I bet you if her then fiancé knew her to be a political activist or enthusiast before they got married and if she appeared keen on pursuing a career in that field, there’ll be very little problem in achieving that dream. Also, like minds attract each other. Imagine being destined to shine in a field and your help-mate (husband) kills that beautiful dream and destiny! Most men are selfish, women as well so you have to be sensible and get your priorities right and you have to start now!
Hillary Clinton became a political activist at age 13 long before she met her husband former President Bill Clinton. She has served severally in the American government, and I doubt any living person in the world today possesses her political pedigree. In the race for the White House today, she’s eminently qualified, in fact more qualified than any of the Presidential candidates. Her dreams in her early teens were shaped by her high school history teacher and by her Methodist youth minister who was concerned with issues of social justice and supported by her father. Unfortunately, we are in a society where even schools celebrate entertainers more than highly accomplished individuals in other spheres of life. Your role models will go a long way in shaping your life and your future. What are your childhood dreams? They are far greater than any boy or man turning your head! May God bless you all.
