GREATNESS OVERRATED

Let a man alter his thoughts and he will be astonished at the rapid transformation it will effect in the material conditions of his life. And....yes, I know altering once life into a whole new path isn\'t as easy as most of the what-not puts it. But effort put towards any positive direction is considered a metamorphosis to greatness. It is more than a society\'s expectation for one to be in dire need to fit within the boundaries of good will as it is embraced as an act of commitment to one self to be of help to his fellow beings. Despite the fact that greatness is desired by many, no one really can tell the exact measure of greatness. It is material possession or it is level of education achieved? I think I would be right to say measure of greatness is just by a notion. It can\'t be backed up by a certain juncture of attainment. And that\'s why it disturbs me when people think other people settling for something is less of what they should have settled for. It is not judge-mental but self-centered and morally unjustified. In a journey to be the very best I can, I have found myself being the worst version I can be and for a minute I felt like my life was somewhat a physics excerpt, you know, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. In the essence that, my toiling and diligence towards a better me is at times shattered back to the latter in equal measures. And as I truthfully agree that as a being of Power, Intelligence, and Love, and the Lord of his own thoughts, man holds the key to every situation, and contains within himself that transformation and regenerative agency by which he may make himself what he wills, God knows it ain\'t easy as such. It is humiliating let alone frightening just looking at the number of people mostly in Africa who are drowning in depression and sort of emotional torture. The kind of pain that doesn\'t speak for itself out loud unless when it\'s too late. The kind of pain that doesn\'t have to have a bandage on so that one can know you are hurting. I said mostly in Africa because I feel like in our African countries we don\'t take depression with the seriousness and anxiety on our Country is way off the grid and the measures put to help curb this disorders or help heal the victims is not an inch close to par.I believe the youths in our nation are doing the best they can. But the amenities put up by the society to succor the efforts of our young men are missing in action. It is a kid in Baring, Laikipia, Kajiado or Samburu who will wake up tomorrow morning just like the norm, milk the cows then head to the plains to heard them. That\'s the best version of greatness he will ever know. He will know his better part of his life that greatness is not missing to milk the cows in the morning and not missing to head to the plains every day. And he will be glad he is great at it. It is a mother in Kakamega who will wake up each and every day to go for odd jobs in better-off families farms to feed her 6 children.She will believe that waking up everyday to go work in her neighbors farm is her greatness. And she will be glad that she is great at it. Then there is you, you will wake up everyday and you will do what you always do. You will be glad that you got paid for what you did. But you will be depressed because either you are not good at it or there is something else you feel that you can be great at. There will be a feeling that something else holds your greatness. It is you that shall be great if you seek that greatness. For if it pains, you sure as hell going to gain. For you that judge your friends for settling be it a relationship or a job that you feel isn\'t good for them, that\'s you feeling that you can\'t stomach it but they probably feel at home. Greatness, is what you do and your heart freely swings in harmony as a kite with every move of your bone. Greatness, is a song that your soul sings when you are asleep and when you are long gone. Greatness is greatness when we look at it, with judgement, without jealousy, without hate but sheer love.
