We crave our different kind of buzz

20 January 2014, 16:12 Martin Beck Nworah

Life at different stages,offers us the opportunity to become who we want to be. These opportunities are disguised in difficulties hence we often lose hope even before we try. So today,I implore us to create our own buzz.

 Decide for yourself the type of life you want to live and make efforts to make your dreams a reality. Craving a different kind of buzz means doing things in a novel way,a way that is new in nature but also very much beneficial. We live in a society where we are all pressured to fit in or be left behind. We grow up with this mentality and each time we don't meet up with the expectations of others about us,we feel bad;really bad.

So today,I reach out to everyone who is trying hard to define his life. That one individual who has decided that he will create his own buzz/life and will not allow himself to be ruled by other people's fake life principles. Its hard I know,I have been there before and I understand how it feels to be dejected and side-tacked. Keep the faith,don't give up. When you are starting something new,people will always push you hard to see if you will crack. When you persevere and hold on strong without cracking,the same people will come back and praise you for your determination and doggedness.

When Lorde sang royals,I read the deep meaning of the song and I enjoyed the lyrics. You should too. When you're out to create something new,close your ears to negative people who will always give you reasons why it won't work. The journey is long I know,but we will succeed. We will be great. We will achieve greatness and together,posterity will always smile on our little life efforts. Till we get to the Promised Land,I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
