H2H: EYELASH DRAMA...


The other day I was walking to the bustop and it was ridiculously windy. Almost 4years here and me and the English wind have never gotten along. It has made it clear that we are not friends. Anyways, I digress, it was really windy and I felt something in my eye. The wind has blown something in my eye. So I kept scratching and hoping the thing in my eyes will go away. This was about 8:20am because my class was for 9:00am

So I got to the bustop still scratching. Tuesdays are really long for me. I have class from 9:00am to 6:00pm. Got on the bus back home around 6.30pm and my eyes still didn't feel okay. I finally got to my room in one piece and looked in the mirror. My eyelash was in my eye, it had been there the whole day.
While I was blaming the wind for attacking me.....




Then I started to think. Just how often are we the ones in our own way? It's very easy to blame others for our down fall. It is easier to look for other ways to justify our inefficiencies and shortcomings than to say you know what, I didn't do my best or I messed up.

DID YOU KNOW? King Saul was in his own way all the time. He was chasing David all the time blaming David for all the wrong things in is life and because of that, he ended up dead. He kinder killed himself (1 Samuel 9-31)

If you ever want to do anything great, you have to get out of your own way. You have to look at yourself in the mirror and get your eyelash out of your eyes. Get pride, contempt and fear out of your life. Most times, we are our own worst enemy. 




Lots of love,

PS. This is a new segment on my blog where I share my random experiences and what I learnt from them. It's my "heart-to-heart" moment with you guys with no fashion whatsoever Lemme know what you think....

  1. Going through that phase right now, where I feel I am my own worst enemy. Praying to God to help in my transformation because it has stopped me from achieving a lot of things. So thanks for the blog post. Nice to know what other people are going through and how they are overcoming it.

  2. True words, Tomi. Thanks for sharing! Sometimes, we're the ones that need to change, not the frustrating person or situation we're praying about.

    And Saul... I've been reading up on his life lately. His story has to be one of the most interesting ones in the Bible. Self esteem issues mixed with pride and so on... Sad, really.
