Beautiful imperfection

 

red block by Tolu Oluwapojuwo

 Imperfection as it were

We don’t feel comfortable 

When it comes our way

But it appeals to our creative minds

Because its beautiful 

As long as it doesn’t hurt

It takes time to be perfect

It takes years most times

But it pays to be perfect

Though we might not experience it quickly

Accept your imperfection

Then you are set for perfection

Then the journey will be easier 

And sometimes faster

When we accept who we are

There is Beauty in imperfection 

A good way to remember the last harmattanĀ 

A good way to remember how dry the harmattan was.   
This was taken during one of my morning street walks earlier this year.  

 It is usually a mini forest in the middle of rainy season but now void of freshness in dry season. 

Good morning great minds!

Getting the best out of the worst

  
Getting the best out of worst situation. After the 20minutes heavy rain today, some drainage channels spilled over their boundaries to main the road to the extent that even vehicles had to slow down. While others were fighting on how to get out of the mess, my instinct instructed me to pick up my camera and tripod. Here is the result.

Thriving for mastery

  
    
 I am not yet the best (in whatever capacity you might connect me with)

Yet, I thrive to always do better than I ever did. 
Some call that excellence or excellent spirit, Yes! 
But I also call it Intentional Growth
If by any chance I might attain the pinnacle of my pursuit here on earth. 
Reaching the highest height, set before I was conceived. 
With God on my side,
Christ working in, with and through me, 
The Holy Spirit leading, teaching and encouraging me,
The Angels of God always on guard, 
I trust that I will Be, Do, and Express MY BEST
Then my generation will realize I have never been in competition with no other man but me. 
Thriving to be better than my immediate passed minute.

#Commercial bike seriesMost local and road side “pick-up” or “drop-off” parks in nigeria have one thing in common. You always see commercial bike riders waiting for potential customers or dropping someone at the park.

In this image, a woman is loading her goods on a bike after dropping off a cab from the farm. She is probably taking the goods to her shop for sale to the end users.
