One Man's Dream - A Success Story

Dreams come to everyone in different ways; some it’s about the finances – accepted, others it’s about impact, influence and career achievement.

This is a short note one someone I respect in the NGO line shared on Facebook recently; I thought it was well said and inspiring.

I’ve known him to in the charity line for a while and finally seeing him achieve his dreams puts a smile on my face. I believe achieving dreams shouldn't start and end when we think of the fame it will bring or the increase in finances; though important, societal impact is also a big one.

Congratulations to Matthew and his team, looking forward to seeing him soon.

On achieving his dreams, he has these words to say….

“I Started in 2005 to work with Orphanages in Africa having been invited to join Link A Child in Nigeria for one of their projects. 8 Years down the line, having worked with Orphanages acros Africa I am finally able to realise a dream and the goal I set back then: To have my own Orphanage where I could commit my Life to ensure that these fantastic children get the most happy and fulfilling life possible with a good education behind them. When I moved back to Africa over 10 years ago as a spoiled, selfish, Irresponsible and immature kid I never thought I would be able to get this passion for others but I have to thank my friends especially in Nigeria who stood by me even when I didnt deserve it and helped me grow as a person and humanbeing. The list of friends (That are more my Family than just friends) are too long to mention stretching from Scandinavia to my peeps in Especially Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. Thank you all for always being there for me and getting me to where I am today. The Mensah Living Water Children Centre in Arusha, Tanzania, will officially open in November after we have taken al the children on their first ever Holiday while we finish the last part of the buildings, Water bore hole, Children play ground etc.. Thanks again to ALL my friends Old and new and to God be the Glory”

Most People

Most people don't care enough to make a difference.
Most people aren't going to buy that new thing you're selling.
Most people are afraid to take action.
Most people are too self-involved to do the generous work you're hoping for.
Most people think they can't afford it.
Most people won't talk about it.
Most people aren't going to read what you wrote.
Fortunately, you're not most people. Neither are your best customers.

The bell …

The sound of the bell
That sound of awkwardness
 The fright it sends down my veins
Of joy, fear, presumptions and guilt
Joy of good tidings set for reap
Fear of evil burgeoning
Presumption of superstitions foretold.

Guilt of sins past.
The bell cries out loud
Roars even into the darkest parts;
Into the wood and beneath the deep pool
 There’s only few and one thing
 That separates the bell from me
The Walls;
 The walls high and mighty
The walls so strong yet fragile
 The walls built to keep me safe
But no, here they come falling flat.

Forget about good

Forget about good Good is a known quantity Good is what we all agree on As long as you stick to good, You’ll never have real growth Bruce Mau, Designer

These Women ...

These women Their shoes are maxi-high Their lips are full-on red Their bags and dresses fit And match like the perfect sky But their attitudes, oh their attitudes Their attitude roar like a roll of thunder. These women They laugh, smile and gaze Like it's all little, casual yet So small; they call shots and spots As if they mean harm and no more, nothing extra These women They desire neither acquire No remorse because after all They are women. (c) Adeola Ojedokun
