We Crazy People…We Are Not Alone…

I suddenly found that those random ramblings I had going on in my head that I put down in my memo pad, was not peculiar to just me. Other people could relate to them.
As 2012 brought me unexpected twists and turns. Some good, some bad, I realized that it also taught me some valuable lessons. For one, there’s actually a lot of people like you out there. If you haven’t found them…rest assured, you will. Because you are absolutely not the only crazy one with crazy ideas. Someone up there made sure you’ll have company.
It also taught me that no matter how hard you fall or how low you sink…if it won’t kill you…then it sure made you stronger. I can’t count the number of time this year I felt like I died. I know I am being quite dramatic here, but I’m sure you get the message. And then of course it hit me, apparently, we’re all phoenixes and when we “die” we just come back through those ashes. Kind of like shedding bad skin. Its not pretty when it happens, but it still does. And you come out better.
2012 also taught me the beauty of inner peace. Yep, I found that this year. If you didn’t find yours last year, you probably will eventually, or you already have and you didn’t recognize it. Inner peace is seeing the world through bigger eyes. Eyes that embody every good side we have. Discovering your inner peace, is like diminishing that side of you that’s naturally selfish and becoming all-giving and selfless. Its fluid, and graceful.
I’m human of course, I have my moments. But inner peace doesn’t make those moments last.
In 2012, I met some individuals that changed my whole way of thinking. And by meet, I mean figuratively. I haven’t actually met half of them. They are the ones who showed me that I wasn’t crazy for dreaming big and that I can do anything regardless and my mind is my only limitation. Those people show me that things can change, if I want them to. And if I work hard enough…then the sky
is my limit can be my starting point.
In 2012, I learnt that other people were not put on the earth to be your heroes or supporters. Even if they’re related to you. They don’t owe you anything. And if they’re kind to you, well, they’re doing it because they want to.
In 2012, I learnt to let go of grudges, accept the changing nature of people and also realize that you can’t possibly know what people are thinking and that’s that.
In 2012, I learnt not to judge anyone. Not to cast a single stone for no reason. To look at everything through detached eyes and from every side.
In 2012, I learnt and in 2013, I intend to practice. And learn even more…
P.S: If you watch the kung fu panda movie part 2, it might give you a better understanding of inner peace.
Article written by RED…
Approximately 20 years ago, RED crashed into planet Earth from Mars. She was meant to crash into yankee, but somehow ended up in Nigeria. She has no regrets being in Nigeria, but fights actively against the decay and rot in Nigeria especially in its Universities. To be honest, RED cannot really fight…cause she loves peace. So instead of fighting she writes and uses her words as a weapon to create change in Nigeria. And she won’t stop typing until…
