In love but no leg

in love but no leg

I lost my leg when I was 19.
 I was dating a girl at that time and we were very much in love. After a while, she suddenly decided to move abroad, claiming that she wanted to earn some money for us.
 I wanted to believe her but was convinced that she was lying. I told her we needed to break up and that it would be better for her. One month later, my doorbell rang.Food: friend plantain and egg
I took my crutches, opened the door and there she was. I didn’t even manage to get a word out before she slapped me and I fell down. She kneeled down beside me, hugged me and said, “You’re an idiot! I didn’t run away from you. We’re going to the hospital tomorrow and there’s a prosthesis waiting for you. I went abroad to earn money so you’ll be able to walk again — do you understand?”
 I was so overwhelmed with emotion that I couldn’t utter a single word — I just hugged her tightly and cried.

Everyday gives a new start

I've always viewed life from the sidelines,
Just watching it pass me by,
In the past too afraid to just let go and live,
And lately too tired to try.

I've envied the people around me,
So invested in living each day,
While I spent my time hiding out from the world,
And searching for ways to escape. In love but no leg

For most of my life, I truly believed,
I was here to help somebody else,
But now it's so clear it was just an excuse.
To avoid living life for myself.Love is an action word

It's sad that our lives and the pain we endure,
Can weaken our strength to move on,
But if we get lost in the scars of our past,
Without knowing our lives will be gone.
Advice to my younger self
Its true people are disappointing,
They can turn in the blink of an eye,
But we can't avoid hurting each other,
When we all want a chance at this life. My YouTube page

Dear Nigeria

Letter to My Nigeria
How are you today? I hope this letter meets you well. I am writing this to you from the corner of my bed as I try to express how I am feeling right now at this moment. Firstly, I want you to know that I am truly happy that you are still standing strong despite being the storms and challenges you are facing.       Nigeria Just like every other storm, we become better and stronger when we overcome them. So I ask how long will you continue to face these storms and challenges? How long will your people feel trapped in the system? How long are You going to keep us in the dark with packaged lies? How long do we wait till You are completely free? You have gained Independence for 58 years, yet it feels like there is no true freedom. Freedom feels like an illusion sometimes in this country.    law stories You have the highest population of youths in the continent yet there is no Nigerian dream for them. Over the period of last month, I have met several people in their 30…

To -Do-list Tips

Unable to focus & get things done? Always Forgetful?

 Here are a few things I do when I find myself unable to concentrate or focus during the day or forgetful and to boost my overall productivity and performance and ensure I am checking off the important tasks on my to-do list.   letting go

One thing I have learned about myself is that I forget a lot even to a fault if I should add but am working on it, in fact, that is why I always carry a small dairy everywhere. ...

I write down all the things am supposed to do that day and then I do it. dad

 1. I make sure I do one task at a time and finish it before I embark on a new one.

2. I have a priority list which I stick to, I eliminate all distractions and only have things open or around me that will contribute to me completing the task I am working on. https://www.justychidd.com/2018/06/let-life-race-you-out-your-fears.html
