Here we are again at our weekly pond of sharing with one
another. It is a delight to be your host on this platform. I hope you are not
getting tired of me neither am I clogging your box?
Today is the 5th day in the 5th month
of the year. I pray that you will rejoice in this new week and you will not
disappoint God and humanity. May your good deeds this week evoke great
remembrance for you always.
As a young man who left the University in his early
twenties, I have had a mind of my own as regards who I should be five years
after graduation. Unfortunately, not all of these dreams have been fulfilled.
However, I had the opportunity of discussing this with my grandfather and he
told me there is a difference between College Fantasies and Out of College Realities.
I hereby share with you, the two sides of expectations which are Fantasies and
Fantasies can be defined as “Alice in the Wonderland”. A
land where everything is smooth and there is no hassle. A land where one will
transit into abundance with no pain. A season of abundance with no lack.
Fantasies can be likened to a dream, fantasies can be likened to an expectation
and lastly, fantasies are imaginary anticipations.
Realities are the actual occurrence of all events. Realities
are hard facts. Realities are the real life experiences. Realities make more
people come alive; it gives them the opportunity to handle situations that they
cannot imagine prior to that time. Realities give birth to responsibilities.
Realities shake off “baby fat”. Realities make people adjust.
Realities are the season of modifications for many people;
they would have been living in a world of fantasies but once realities dawn on
them, they sit up and brace up for the challenges at hand. Realities had led
people to committing suicide because they lost the zeal to continue the journey.
Realities make people know that there are confrontations.
Get prepared for realities beyond your fantasies. Men have
their fair share of the season of realities. However, note that the realities
of a man might be different from that of a woman; the realities of siblings
could differ; the realities of colleagues could vary. In all realities exist.
Whatever be your realities, just ensure that you stand to
the task; do not give you. Your fantasies (dreams) will soon materialize. All
you have to do is to endure and enjoy today’s realities (challenges) which have
a way of modifying you as you journey to your fantasies.
Enjoy your week.
