It all came to me one night, last night actually whilst I was getting ready for bed, right between changing my clothes and going to use the bathroom. When did my desire to make money and be successful begin? It’s a question that had been floating in my mind for quite some time now.

I am not ashamed to say that I want to make money because well, it’s true. Not to mention, I plan on spending the money wisely. I want to use my money to better other people’s lives. I have good intentions.

However that still does not answer the question, Why do I want to be successful? It’s not like I lacked in my childhood, my parents have made sure we all get good education, a nice house, food to eat, clothing, holidays and many other luxuries, my childhood was amazing and it still is. My family is amazing and I thank God.

Surprisingly enough, it was a person that inspired my thirst of success, my thirst to thrive. Even more surprisingly, it wasn’t my parents, it wasn’t an inspirational celebrity story neither was it those encouraging 4 minute videos, it was actually a boy. Unknown to him, whilst discussing his goals and plans and living according to them, he got me thinking What am I doing? What is MY plan for success? His determination for success is one of the things I respected him and still respect him for.

I also found that along with my desire for success, came my desire for “my big break” something that I could grow and be successful at, I find myself wishing people would cast me in TV shows or movies. In fact, I auditioned to be a TV host for LindaIkejiMedia, I didn’t get into the semi-finals but you get my point.

My mother says I need to find a niche, something I enjoy and would like to develop my skills in but such I am yet to find. I have a lot of interests yet I dont know if I am interested enough for them to be my “niche”. I am currently interested in media and would like to start a youtube channel yet I can’t seem to figure out what type of content I would like to share, again because I dont know my niche.

I would really like to start earning my own money, there’s all this talk about sugar daddies and finding a rich husband to take care of you but it’s all fun and games until he starts treating you like an object that he can throw out at any point in time and you can’t do anything about it because you depend on him and his money to live. Making your own money gives you independence, nobody can tell you what to do with your own money, they can advice you but they can’t order you to do so. And I’m sure you’re thinking Gedo, why don’t you just get a job but hunny you don’t understand, where I currently am, graduates can’t even get jobs let alone myself with no experience whatsoever but the Lord will provide, let’s see what happens.

I hope you enjoyed, let me know your thoughts in the comments, what should I do?

Have a blessed week,

Geespeaks: I’m not getting cuffed!

Hey boos,

It’s been a very long while, I know, forgive me. A lot had been going on in my life that needed to be attended to promptly but now I am back. I received so much love on my last post, the one titled “sorry”, thank you so much for that, I really appreciate it.

So we’ve just hit October and we all know what that means, cuffing season is upon us. Cuffing season defined by UrbanDictionary occurs during the fall and winter seasons where people who would rather be promiscuous or single, find themselves, along with the rest of the world desiring to be “cuffed” or tied down in a serious relationship.

This year however, it’s going to be a little different for me, this year I’ve decided to be single throughout the cuffing season. Now some of you may ask, Gedo what are you talking about, you’ve never had a boyfriend, which is true, I’ve never had a boyfriend but during this time of the year, I always had someone I was talking to and this was also before I had a better understanding of what dating was and what it was mean’t for so I definitely was in a hurry to get “cuffed”.

So what has changed, why have I made this decision? Well, I figured that I actually enjoy being single, not because it allows me to kiss as many boys as I like but because I feel like I have more breathing and thinking space, more peace of mind, it’s almost stress-free . I’m not saying that being in a relationship is a bad thing, definitely not, finding someone who you want to be with is a beautiful thing, I just don’t think I am ready for it. Talking to someone, or having a thing with someone, I realized, makes you happy, it gives you a rush. Anytime they say something cute to you, instant rush, instant happiness, if they say they have mutual feelings for you, instant rush, instant happiness, smiling so hard you think your face is going to burst but being single gives you a different type of happiness, a tiny warm feeling in your heart that just sits there.

I’m not saying being single is the best thing in the world, because it’s not. Sometimes I feel so lonely, I look at people who are in loving relationships and I’m like wow, I wish that was me but that only lasts for a while for me and then I realize that I quite enjoy being single. I like it being me, myself and I, I like that I am using this time to put effort in myself, love myself, respect myself and develop God-confidence so that when indeed God decides to drop that special someone in my life, I can love them whole-heartedly and by that time I would have known who I am and who I am in Christ so I wont feel like I have to change for them.

So cuffing-season, it’s God and I this year, and it couldn’t be better.

Have a blessed week,

Gedo xx
