Ladies aspire for more

13 October 2014, 11:57

For everything I have enjoyed and I'm still enjoying in my life now, I owe them all to the women in my life. These women believed in me and held on strong through hard times. These ladies are making sure MBN's dreams and aspirations will be brought into fruition within the shortest possible time and I thank them so very much. To the women in my life, I thank God for the special gift of you. No one can take your place.

For our young ladies of NOW-a-DAYS, I bend my head in shame. If you are a lady reading this,you need to aspire to something more than just an iphone, tablet, hair, lashes, nails ,comfort and what have you. You need to aspire to something more than just marriage or bearing children. In all honesty and sincerity,you truly need to aspire to the best in your career and life. The women in my life have made me realize that what a man can do, a woman can show him the better and more productive way of doing it. They (women in my life), when there seems to be no road, created wings and helped me to fly above my challenges, soaring high above them all and succeeding when I lest expected. They taught me that a lady can be the reason for the life of a man and from my experiences in life, I have come to accept that statement.

As a young lady, what do you aspire to? Husband? Career? Kids? New car? Comfortable and rich home? Side chick? What have you? If there's anything the ladies in my life taught me; it is the fact that when you work smart and dedicate your resources and energy to positively developing yourself, everything good will certainly come. The cars will come. The foreign trips and business meetings in the first class sec of Emirates will come. The wealth, affluence, popularity and everything that we have ever wished for will certainly come. But for now,the ladies in my life taught me to be focused and invest in that person I want to become.

You must look beyond the 10K or 100K he will give you for that night. You must see beyond being his toy and leaving your destiny at the mercy of hotel rooms and nightclubs. Life is harsh I know; but if we all turned to the way of vices because of life's hardships...who will survive to tell the tales? I respect the ladies in my life because they sacrificed so much to be where they are today. They denied themselves many good things just to see me smile and that is the height of being a pelican. My dear lady,not everything on earth is sustained by bottom power. You can make your life better and be like the ladies in my life. Don't let the men play you like a game,you have a choice and a life.


You have a choice and a life! Take it! Receive it and make it the best. Life is hard and some choices make things even harder but we shall overcome. You need to constantly remind yourself that whatever it is that you are passing through today, can never be compared to the joy that will come at the end of the tunnel. I believe you can stop posting pictures of your boobs on instagram and stop cursing out on twitter. If we believe,there's no limit to what we can achieve. And if it seems so hard a burden for you to carry,I'm always here with a helping hand. I care!
