It seemed an advantage to be traveling alone. Our responses to the world are crucially moulded by whom we are with, we temper our curiosity to fit in with the expectations of others…Being closely observed by a companion can inhibit us from observing others; we become taken up with adjusting ourselves to the companion’s questions and remarks, we have to make ourselves seem more normal than is good for our curiosity.

So who knows who, who is nobody, who is somebody and who doesn’t know anybody?
It’s amazing how we call a person a nobody, a very common trend in our backyard. A nobody is a person whose wallet is a bit thin, not necessarily empty. Whose bank balance probably is only a balance at month end. It really matters not if you meet your obligations. If you do, it must mean you don’t have obligations worth mentioning.
This side of the woods you only become a somebody when your wallet is bulging and your bank balance looks like a game of commas. It really matters not where these commas come from. It matters not if you sold your soul to the devil.
And who, I ask , is anybody? Anybody is somebody who can transform a nobody into a somebody. Anybody is that somebody to whom you can sell your Soul….
So be careful, watch out because…anybody is the devil😈.
Whenever you feel weak, remember the things that made you strong; whenever you start to doubt yourself. Remember those who believe in you.
If your boss paid you 30,000 every month and you saved all that money without touching a coin, you would need to work for 36 months to get 1million. But if you convinced an organization like The UN to give you a printing job for only 5,000 umbrellas and you made 200bob from each umbrella that would be 5000×200=1,000,000. In only 1day.
It becomes crazy if you want to become a Billionare. Say your boss pays you 1M per month and you saved all that money without touching a single coin, in a year you would only have 12million and you would need to work for 84years to get 1billion (How old are you??).
However, there are 40 million people in kenya if you supply salt to 12million of them once per month making 10bob per packet, it would only take you 1year to be a bilionare. BECAUSE the way to be rich is to stop dealing with Bosses and start dealing with clients.
See the sense?
Life itself is a privilege, but to live life to the fullest – well, that is a choice.
