If You Give A Darn

A Healthy appetite is ....
  1. knowing the difference between what you really need and what you think you want. To many there is no difference at all, but to the disciplined, that is the essence of life. The fact that it looks nice does not mean it is indispensable.
  2. keeping a balanced and reasonable perspective in everything. Eat what you may, but always from a small plate. Waste not want not. Never overtreat your ego.
  3. making sure you don't leave your fair lady at base camp whilst you gallop to mount pleasant. Wham bam thank you madam is irreverent. Instead try not to hang up until she is banged up. In all give-and-takes, let her get more than she has bargained for. Remember that the game between the sheets must be an equitable and equilateral marathon, for goodness sake.
  4. realising that money can procure some happiness, but much depends on how the cash got into your hands in the first place. It is important to defer some joy for your own good. Don't be insatiable, it will only bring grief.
  5. realising that doing nothing about that low libido is the shortest path for her/him into the hands of that dog/bimbo down the lane. Until you do, prepare yourself for a war which you have no hope of winning.
  6. knowing that thinking is also part of the deal. So give yourself regular time to stare at the wall. Whatever the colour! What you sow is what you reap. Even in the desert!
  7. taking responsibility. Don't become an addict to anything or anybody, even to yourself. Keep some space for the unexpected. Why fill up with junk simply because it is available. Have some big dream. If it does not come to pass, what do you lose?

Oh Posekyere. Oh oh! I love this.
What a nutritious brain food - I may have an unhealthy appetite for more! lol

You know what I love about your writing? I don't even know how to put it into words. But you deliver important points with the best hook/punch. You always speak the truth but with such a majestic elegance. You are so talented with words. I took time yesterday to read the description of your blog (below the headline) and even that blows my mind. How did you get so good.
All that being said let me also say that you are so wise.
I loved every single point and agreed with them all. "Instead try to not hang up until she is banged up" lol "To be disciplined - that is the essence of life" "Have some big dream.." etc etc. Magnificent. Refreshing friday morning reading!

Gosh, Adaeze!
Blush, blush!
Do you realise that you making my head swell?
Thanks for your ever warm comments.
I really think you have a gift of storytelling. Keep up with the newfound art of narration. Soon you will be a writer of note.
Btw, I am already waiting for part III of "the day everything changed".
Bless and have a wonderful weekend!

Posekyere posts another!

This one swept me off my mental feet.

All so true, all so witty, all so sharp.

Can I copy them and post them on the wall in my room, please, please?

And I agree with Adaeze about you being a maestro.
