100 Days Of My Youth( Day 75): One Of Those Days..

Today was yet again one of those days! Days that slap reality back in your face and remind you that you’re growing and you need to man up and step up to the challenge that comes with it all.

Right now, like almost any other Youth out there, I’m trying to juggle as many things to get a life I desire to live. Every morning I wake up, I have a myriad of things running through my head that all need to be attended to. Errands that need to be ran, obligations that need to be sorted, demands that need to be heeded to. It’s a whole lot of stuff going on.

Unlike other days, today I woke up with so much energy and vigor to make the most of the day. Even with a mild headache, I knew I’d soilder on and be just fine. A few blogs to submit, business to chase, a meeting where I had to pitch and most importantly payment I had to collect.

However, little did I know I wouldn’t achieve any of those. Infact I did achieve none at all and the day just went to waste. Today was one of those days where you left your house to go make sure you come back with some of value addition to you but nassing!

In the midst of the hustle, the hierarchy and protocol of running a business, the hiccups and twists caught up with me. Just when I expected to walk away with cash, I was handed and LPO and that only meant that no pay and all my day’s plans had been distorted greatly by this small change. It sunk in the hard way! Damn!

Today is one of those days where you just want to walk into the bar like we see it in the movies and take a seat by the counter, order for countless shots of Jack or Johnnie and get wasted under the merciful and watchful eye of the bartender. You’re confused, you want someone to talk to and at the same time you want to be all by yourself!

Today is one of those days where you want to go do something you’d later regret just because of the enormous amount of frustration that work brought. You get the wild thought of giving you ex a booty call and have wild sex like as though you’d never called it quits.

Unlike other days, today has come with its own set of lessons, trials and tribulations. Today has been one of those days where your ability to lead had been tested, where you have to do radical decisions that could land you in trouble or might as well benefit you in the near future.

Today is one of those days where you really want to rant on social media to whoever wants and cares to listen and maybe build small talk and maybe take your sorrow away. Also could is the best day to simply go offline, switch off your phone maybe and stop this blog already!

I blog for believers, spirited optimists, and ambitious movers. I am writing to build a home that will be filled with Ideas & Inspiration.
