What people think we would become

When i was little i admired doctors and nurses. I really applauded them for going through the moments of saving lives and loosing lives at the same time.  How they convey good news and at the same time find the right words to disseminate bad ones. 

I was really inquisitive. I can remember asking my aunt how kids came about and she often told me that when a man and a woman love each other so much then the woman gets pregnant. Well….i wondered why it had to be the woman getting pregnant.. how about the man, or isn’t the woman loving as well?

I was more concerned about how the baby came out of the stomach. Trust my aunt, she had an answer for every question. Guess what she said, guess!!! Smh she said, “when the child is ready to come out, it comes out from the mouth”. What!!! Did she literally mean that the woman practically vomits her baby?? Hell No! 

Believe me at my age, vagina delivery would have made more sense. God dammit you mean to tell me from the mouth. With the way i was shaking my head i guess she taught she had succeeded in confusing me but “Nah”. She made me more inquisitive which landed me into what i call “presumed career choice”. Yes people.. We are just getting started. 

I was 12 when i started my “oversabi” you can call it “busybody” whichever one you feel comfortable using. I decided to go live with my uncle who is a doctor. It was really exciting seeing what really went on in the hospital. I got to understand the human body.  Not all of it though but as a human being one ought to know about oneself. 

When i talk about certain things related to the human body as a result of my little experience people just concluded that i would make a fine doctor. Just like that.” Seriously”, I mean do you have to be a doctor simply because you know about your body. We make mistakes that should not have been made simply because we rely on medical practioners to study our bodies for us. Here is a saying: “prevention is better than cure”. If we get to know the things harmful to us we get to avoid the need for treatment or cure. How can we know the things harmful to us without understanding how our bodies work??

My knowledge in human science made my parents think that was my field. But in my case it wasn’t. Did i really have the skill? (I answered that  a longtime ago). The part of the world where I come from is where parents, uncles, aunts, friends etc.see a child rebuilding his broken house and say, “this child will be an engineer, an architect”.   When a boy gets the Tv repaired his future has been seen or when a girl dresses corporate you hear,  ” she will be a bank manager”. When you are so good at arguing and defending yourself confidently well.. I hope you know you will become a lawyer. 

Sometimes I wonder what some families had to say about their wards when they fix a torn bag or fix a worn out shoe or fix a broken tap. Probably this may be their comments, “you will make a fine cobbler(shoe-maker as we call it), a fine plumber”. Woe betide you that you mention the above words just because you see how well the child can fix a bag or a shoe. The next words that may come your way may be  ,”It is your child that will be a shoe-maker or plumber”. Just because a child can do certain things at a little age does not mean that is their career in the future. As people grow certain factors influence their choice of career. Each passing year comes with a different interest all together.

Harmony

via Daily Prompt:Harmony

Music makes no meaning without harmony.  It is called “Harmonie”in French.  Imagine that there is a live concert and all that you hear is noise.  You don’t seem to get the words and how they flow or impact in you as well as the feeling. Music is nothing without Harmony. This reminds me of “The  Sound of Music”. When Julie Andrews(Maria) sang,  the music was in accordance with her heart, mind, body and soul. I could feel the Harmony in the songs that she sang. I think I can almost hear my child hood coming lol..Do…a deer……lol….Re…a drop of golden sun…Mi …a name I call myself…Fa…a long long way to run…

#TeamHealthyFriendships#

We all have friends or should I say clique of friends….but few of us have healthy relationships (please for the love of God I don’t mean the intimate kinda thing).

Back to what I was saying…a good friend brings out the very best in you..this doesn’t mean that you don’t get into arguments or a fight(my oh my my friend can testify). The good thing is you know exactly how to get back together. At every stage of my life I meet new people.. well you should know that sometimes friendships are temporary depending on the situation. 

The good thing is I learn the good stuffs and do away with the bad stuffs..of course not everyone is a saint. Well..let me introduce you guys to my friend from Equatorial Guinea. We met  two semesters ago and guess what??? ” we clicked”. We sometimes don’t have it all rosy but we rock
