EXHAUSTED

img_5543

When the mind is at war with the heart, air becomes suffocating.
So sad, last night became the last time. All that is left are the memories of the usual spot.

I woke up with my eyes shut. Afraid to face reality; so scared to revisit the thoughts that put me to bed. What do you do with unpleasant memories? Burn or crush them?
Unfortunately, Just like the wind you can’t catch them.
They keep hovering around and won’t leave your head.

Who takes the blame after a fight?
Do you push it on one fellow or blame it on the overflowing emotions?
Really, who should take the blame when anger takes over?
Is it the tipsy brain or the impatient mind? Continue reading

DEAR DIARY

image

I haven’t seen anything or anyone as loyal, secretive, and faithful as you are. Most nights, I drench you with my tears, fill you with my complaints, and there has never been a time where you let my secret slip through your guard. I laugh, you laugh. I cry, you wail. I’m silent, you’re calm. I’m happy, you glow. You’re just too faithful!

You’re  always there, waiting for me to paint you with my thoughts. Today, more than anything I would want you to respond. Speak to me. Be blunt if you have to… You’ve been quiet for so long. Continue reading

FALLEN LEAVES

imageThere are different sources to every fortune. When one door closes, there’s another path waiting to push you further and farther in life. Nothing ever empties completely on the face of this earth.

The young ones keep growing while the older ones draw closer to their grave. While some people are mourning over the loss of their loved ones, others are feeling the joy that comes with birth.

Life is more like an exchange. You’re either receiving, giving, gaining, losing, living or dying. The moment you’re taking a breath of fresh air, some other person is breathing his or her last. It’s certain that you can’t understand the beautiful bliss that comes with happiness if you’ve never been under the knife of sorrows.

BE AHEAD OF THE CURVE

imageThe joy that comes with writing is quite indescribable… but when you have to prove yourself to a  wide range of audience and top executives, you’ll understand that it takes a lot to write. People value depth, perfection and  great standards.

Nevertheless, Writers are gods! They do not only feed your imaginations; they create both fantasies and reality around you. I love the power behind the sword of writers, and today I will be sharing what is titled: QUICK LITTLE AMATEUR SCREENWRITING TIPRANT (TM) by Geoff LaTulippe.

Do have an interesting read.

FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN PITCHING A SCRIPT

  1. When you’re pitching a script to someone, you’re pitching yourself too, like it or not. Because you’re building a business relationship. So, when you’re asking someone to read your script, you’re asking someone to open the door to being a creative partner with you on it. Continue reading

AGAINST ALL ODDS, LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

I have this friend who doesn’t freak out easily, no matter what happens. He tells me that the worst case scenario in life is being too afraid to try or venture into new things. He is a young executive producer, and capturing the beauty of life through the lens of camera is his forte.

Today on spotlight, feel the words of a young man who spoke from the depth of his heart.

imageWHO HE IS

“I am Chimaobi Anthony Okpala. I am a Nigerian, from Anambra state; in Orumba north local government area. I’m from a close-knit family. My father is late. I’m blessed with the warmth and love of my only brother and mother.” said Chimaobi

“Would you consider the death of your father as the lowest point in your life?” I thoughtfully asked.

“Yes, it wasn’t easy. It happened when I was quite young but I can still remember everything. It’s still so clear, like…”

I had to cut in, because he was getting a bit emotional.

“So is it safer to say that you grew up too fast?” I asked Continue reading

SMILES ARE GREATER THAN TEARS

THE POWER OF GRATITUDE

imageThere are different kinds of people. There are those who take in every breath and breathe out gratitude, no matter what life throws at them. Such people don’t break easily. Far from getting everything they desire or reaching the height of their dreams, they keep living large. Life in its entire strictness has nothing on them. I know you’ll be wondering, “How do they do it?” What’s the magic behind their ability to wear a smile and laugh out loud even when the hardness of life tries to break them into pieces?

It’s GRATITUDE; the rare ability to allow the beauty of life becloud its difficulties. It’s that power that allows you to say thanks for the smallest of offer or kindness you receive. It’s the sense of fulfillment and contentment that weakens the torture of life. Continue reading

THE UNIVERSE IS OURS, NOT YOURSimage

Stars twinkle and shine together, because a single star can’t occupy the whole sky. This reminds me of how much we can achieve if we can come together, appreciate our differences and pursue our goals in full force. Competition can be a catalyst for growth only when it is healthy.

Undoubtedly, we all want to forge ahead, stand firm and not be relegated to the background. This can only be achieved by investing so much in our abilities, walking in our own lane and not speeding to overtake, overthrown, overshadow, or pull others down.

It’s true we’re stuck in the same universe, but our journeys are indeed different. It’s an individual race and you don’t need to run it with baggage of insecurities. Greed, jealousy, hate and unhealthy competitions are very toxic and only show signs of weakness, lack of control or confidence. You don’t judge another man’s success or means of achievement with yours. we all can’t get to our destinations at the same time. Some will get to their dream land on time while others will catch up later. Continue reading
