THE LIVING THERAPY; DO YOU WANT TO LIVE LONG OR DIE LONG BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

THE LIVING THERAPY; DO YOU WANT TO LIVE LONG OR DIE LONG BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE

“Death isn’t the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies in us while we live”.- Norman Cousins

If I’m asked; “at what age do people really die more?”, I will say; “between the age of 20 to 30 but are buried later at old age”.

Many started dying at the teenage age between the transition to adulthood where they experience being left in the coma of indecision, peer pressure, wrong counsels, poor parenting and negative influences.

Very few are actually resuscitated from this coma as they have the chance to live again and get things right while others are left in this disheartening condition till they finally get to meet a blow that would finally take life from them.

Their eyes stopped working the day they lost their vision, their heart stopped pumping immediately they lost their passion; their Central Nervous System started having complications when they can’t trace their ambitions and harness their potentials.

Of what use is a life if he doesn’t understand the time he is living in?

Of what use is a life who has lost the purpose of existence?

Of what use is a life who has no sense of relevance and whose absence is not felt?

As I walk from house to house, across the streets, visit communities and graced events, I have seen a great company of dead cadavers who don’t know their obituaries is that image they see in the mirror when they are yet to discover purpose and do the necessaries in being who God has made them.

Some have given in to embalmment processes of trying to prosper out of their purpose or shortchanged their desires with something just to make a living. The real sense of their lives has been taken away from them and ignorance has been the epidemy of this alarming death rate.

So disappointing today that many organizations some folks found themselves have become their mortuaries, some jobs have become cemeteries while some seemingly attractive opportunities have given many the privilege to attend their own funeral. The undertakers carrying their caskets are their so called “friends”.

Many died because they didn’t survive the accident of their nation’s economic situations, wrong spouse, negative influences, disappointment, choice of wrong carreer and so on. Some were given death sentences by the people around them while others by their hands made decisions to take life from themselves.

I believe some people don’t have to be addressed as “late” after they are buried because their legacies still out live them. I also feel the use of “late” for a deceased means, “the individual is dead for long but late to be buried”.

Men like Myles Munroe, Billy Graham aren’t late because their legacies live on while those individuals who died with their potentials untapped died earlier before they are buried.

Not everyone who died at age later than 70 lived long if they don’t fulfill purpose. It is better to say they “died long”.

A man starts dying the day when his purpose, passion and potentials can’t find expression. Are you among the living on this prospect? Do you want to live long or die long? Do you want to be addressed as late after your demised on earth?

WHAT ARE YOU LIVING FOR? BY OLAWADE DAVID B.

WHAT ARE YOU LIVING FOR? BY OLAWADE DAVID B.

YOU CAN’T BE IDLE

If you don’t want to spend your time in fulfilling God’s purpose for your life, you would definitely spend your time on something fruitless.

DON’T BE AN IDOLATER

If you don’t give your life to Jesus, who is your creator and savior, you would give your life to something else which would be a an idol in the sight of God.

DONT SHUN OR NEGLECT WHAT MATTERS TO GOD

If you don’t make your life an investment for eternity, you will use it for something that will make you miss heaven and grant you a ticket to hell.

LIVE BY BRAVEDAVE

LIVE

Passing through, we are travellers

Conjured to being by a Creator.

Life and death decided beforehand,

Freewill lost before ’tis  found.



We may cheer our breathing

And smile sadly at the breathless

But breath will one day cease

And our dead state will reign for life



While we’re alive, we should live

As free, not as walking dead

Not bound from head to foot in white

But choosing ourselves to walk as light

STOP COMPARING YOURSELF WITH OTHERS BY Dr. BIEN SUFFICIENT

STOP COMPARING YOURSELF WITH OTHERS BY Dr. BIEN SUFFICIENT

If there is any plague destroying young people today is comparing themselves with others. Even adults are victims of this self-destructive habit. If you must compare yourself with anyone, the only person you should compare yourself with is the person you were yesterday.

You have to know that everybody is different. As we all have different finger prints, so our lives and destines are different. Nobody’s life is superior to yours no matter how clamorous you might think another person’s life is. Everybody have their own life challenges. That they have a different challenge from yours does not in any way mean they are better than you.

Don’t ever wish you had another person’s life, because you do not know what that person is struggling with. Be content with who you are, and work on getting better on a daily bases. Make it a duty to ensure that you are better today than you were yesterday. Be comfortable in your own skin.

We always have the tendency to feel that life is always greener on the other side. But my dear, that is not always the truth about life. The only truth I know; is that you can be anything you want to be in life, if only you are committed to make it happen. Instead of wasting your time and life comparing yourself with others, get to work on your craft and make yourself your only competitor.

You need to begin to believe in yourself, if you want others to believe in you. If you do not believe in yourself, no other person will. Until you embrace who you are and decide to make yourself better, there will be little or nothing you will achieve in life. If you do not have a good self-esteem, you will destroy a lot of things for yourself.

Don’t allow anyone to make you feel they are better than you. Just because people paint a picture of a perfect life to you, does not mean they don’t have their challenges. So stop looking at anyone, stop comparing yourself with anyone. Stop thinking your situation is worst. You know what dear friend? There are thousands of people out there praying to have what you have now, that you are taking for granted.

Your situation is not the worst. So be grateful for what you have, why working on getting to the greater height you desire. Be your own person and know you are not worse than anyone else.

When you compare yourself with others you kill your originality. You will begin to try to model your life after others. Trying to do what they are doing because you want to be like them. That will be the beginning of your failure, limitation and downfall. Stay true to who you are, Work as hard as possible. Be consistent and persistent. Stay focused to your purpose, vision and dreams. If you do, the sky will be your starting point as you will be limitless in all your endeavors. YOU ARE UNIQUE!
