You remember those times when we used to recite the quotes of fallen (RIP) heros? It's like they areback but practically.
Be a fighter? Mmh.. Not a good title, but as I once told my lecturer 'lemmi support my argument... I stand to be corrected'. In my house - niliskia ikiitwa 'siimba' - I have something encouraging on the wall. It's my uncle's actually. It reads 'DON'T QUIT'.
Such a cliché right? That's why instead of don't quit, I say, Fight on. Be a fighter.
Now,now now... Fights? Thought we were peace lovers? Duh!? Ok. Don't fight peace or with people. I'll make sure you are arrested if you do. Over years, we try to better ourselves in our fields. It just becomes so damn hard sometimes.
From all corners we face the bravest of our enemies... Setback that is. Personally, I know that it sucks not to grow. You also can't grow if you fear a setback.
My biggest setback is somebody I see in the mirror every morning.
So damn brave. He holds me down tight on bed and makes sure am not awake.
He tells me we'll go for jogging the next morning, and it never happens.
He only demands meals and he's like a gold digger in me. Always wants something. Always gets it. Nkt! What a loser am I.
Guess what? He's so stupid sometimes. Laughs at me in the lavatory.
Its time we part ways. Its time he knows he's under our roof, when I say we, I'm taking God as an ally in this fight.
And the famous quote drops, the guy in the mirror is your competition.
WTH! Patrick, be a fighter. You can do this.
