Many chances we keep in our lives that we search for something far greater than what we already have and searches for deeper meaning to what has been unto us. Hoping for something better, I believe, is what mankind is so profoundly involved in. We always believed that our ability to face the future and live each day is anchored on our hope that tomorrow will be much better than today and way greater than yesterday. It is our ability too, to look beyond today and be optimistic that the light that comes through us tomorrow will brighter inside our hearts and within ourselves.
What made us wanting for more in life is our inability to appreciate what we already have. In this life, nothing is perfect. No perfect friends, family, husband or wife, boyfriend or girlfriend or partners. No perfect careers, vacation, office or even cars. Because we wanted something far greater and perfect, we are stressed to no ends and disappointments starts to creep out of us. It spills over to what we consider to be important to us at present – our careers, our loved ones, families and more so, those we hold materially. If we only learn to appreciate the simplicity of what life can bring then it will be less stressful and depressing.
We hope each day that ours will be better tomorrow but I believed that when you are able to appreciate what life has to offer today, there is no need to be hopeful for ourselves but we can be hopeful for others already. When we have what we have and appreciate it, then we do not want more than what we already have. Instead, we hope on hope of others. We hope that they too will be able to get to where we are and appreciate life. Our contentment defines the person that we are and it defines further, the character we so impressed on others. When we are contented with what we already have, we can hope, yes we always can but surely, it will not be anymore for us, but for those whom we know who still clings to their hopes that their lives will be better. By that, we nurture a contented heart that radiates to others who have seen us, our hopes and our life.
All women who come out of this world are born beautiful. No matter where they are, what their life’s station is and what careers they take, they are all, as I said, beautiful. Why was it that women remains so alluring in spite all the stress, chaos, and challenging the world have become? It is because they are made by God to balance the earth from the folly of men. As many would universally suggest that behind every man’s success are women. One man’s meteoric rise to everything he dreams on are all too honestly, supported by women. Women are the substance of each man’s character. Women are the sisters, daughters, girlfriends, mothers and wives any man can ever wish for.
As we value women of today, let us not forget that they too are of equal rights to men. We never aspire a society that is so chauvinistic at its worse against women. We shall never be threatened by them, instead, let us welcome their silent prayers, their approving nods, their cheers and their disappointing tears as well as fears. We are never complete as men without the women we love. We will never be complete if we neglect the women we care so deeply. Much more, we will never be in a society full of better opportunities for all if women are not around. For sure, there are more sacrifices willingly can be borne out by women than of men.
We men, must learn to appreciate our women. We can never explicitly state that our women are just “men” wooed but they are, much felt, the delicate balance that makes this world go round. No man can ever be successful without their women whom he loves so dearly. The dotting sister who easily gives in and supports us, the understanding mothers who appreciate us and the grandmother who continually pamper us. Women whose beauty far reaches even the most coveted Helen or Athena and how great is a woman? Well, one must learn from mythology as well as history that it was a woman who launch a thousand ships, a woman who made Samson weak, a woman who ruled Egypt and a woman who spied for the British and of course, was it a woman who made us believe that love is what we need to foster transparency, truth and accountability.
