I have come to realise the importance of having a life. I mean not just being able to breathe but exercising one’s existence in a meaningful way.

My personal experiences have all come to point to the fact that my life is in gear for a great purpose. I cannot afford to waste my authenticity and ingenuity by being bothered about things that have no relevance to my being able to make a mark with my life.

Recently, I had the grace of reliving the birth of my son which was just a miracle in itself but more than that was the fact that I had been given a 50% chance of surviving the surgical procedure due to possibilities of complications which could have led to death. But here I am by God’s grace.

I am alive and so my life must translate into a more meaningful message. If I had passed on, I would not have been bothered by any limitation or opinions of people. And so here I am, choosing to live my life to the fullest as a “dead woman walking”; that is I choose to consider myself dead to anything that will not be an encouraging factor to me maximising the expression of my existence.

There are so many things that could make us cringe in fear and waste away in self-doubt. We have only one life to live. Fears within ourselves and threats from external factors will only waste away our lives. We need to be bold and see what lies at the other side of our vulnerabilities. Most likely we will find our authentic self striving for survival and our gifts and strengths longing for expression. We can be more than we allow life events dictate to us.

My life means so much more and I want to live it, experience it and share it. I know my life is beyond myself and I choose to engage it for a higher purpose than self-indulgence. However, in as much as I make efforts for others to benefit from my existence I will also seek to enjoy myself because it is when I really love myself that I will be able to love others.

Life is short but can be rich; your life means much more than you know or have experienced. Live it to the fullest, considering yourself dead to whatever does not have any meaningful relevance to your emergence.

Keep pushing for more!


There’s a more fulfilling life for you out there; reach for it!
