Hypocrites! I’m Judging You.

These days, my Christain brethren are becoming far too annoying. It never ceases to amaze me on how some people find it very easy to critique the doings of others, yet when you take a good peek at them, they are full of potholes of errors that need to be filled up.

These ‘oversabi pipus‘ are usually quick in recommending what their neighbours should do to stop the fire from consuming their domain, meanwhile very slow in advising themselves and the smouldering embers of their own burnt out domain serves as an evidence of their hypocrisy and inability to put out that same fire.

I suggest you save such priceless advice for your good self and so you know, I am judging you through my slanted eyes.

Footnote:

Oversabi pipus – a broken English/pidgin English that ‘means people who know it all.’ It’s a concoction of Portuguese, English and West African flavour.

To break it down:

Sabir – A Portuguese word – To Know

Over – in this case meaning excess

pipus – West African twist for People

Out of the silent breath

The air is so crispy

The birds are quite chirpy

The magic of nature abounds

As I imbibe all the sounds.

At no age does the learning of the mind stop except the strictures that we place on ourselves.

Most times the term being set in our ways that we loosely use is actually a self-imposed and nice way of saying, I don’t want to be bothered to change.

For as long as we can keep our minds open to assimilate knowledge, our inner core is rejuvenated, constantly growing and the perspectives of our horizons remains broad.

Midnight Motivations and Musings # 72

We are all a whirlpool of dreams and ideas but a lot of us undermine our capabilities and always nip dreams in the bud with comments like ‘oh I couldn’t,’ while looking on as others go about trying to achieve theirs.

I can’t, I couldn’t, I am afraid and so  many of such self limiting statements are defeatist and they are like monsters that simply grow bigger with the smallest confirmation.

Yes you can, but only when you’ve tried to. You’ve got nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain, if only you will have the audacity to try and have fun while at it.
