The Bamboo Lesson by Blessing Chidinma Amadi


If you plant a Chinese bamboo seed, it will ignore you and sleep in the ground for up to even 5 years. Then within six weeks, it sprouts up to 80 to 90 feet!

You didn't know right? Oh. Maybe you knew.

If you are asked how long it took the bamboo to grow, what would be your answer?

Well, 5 good years.

Rain fell on it, feet matched on it and passed over like nothing was there, sun dried life out of it, grasses grew on its space and overshadowed it. What a pity! But you know, is a strong breed, a specie with strong belief in its self. It ould keep waiting, and one day, it sprout, it pop its head out and give warning to all around. And then it pushes forth and even becomes a shelter for all around.

My dear, every year, there is always this proclamation in church or anywhere else. You receive the promises of God and you tell yourself; "it is my year to shine", but for many years you have been playing that music with nothing to show for it. This year, you started the same way. Let me tell your the truth, this year may end without something in hand to show for it. But the 1st of January next year, someone may call you up and say; "we have been watching you ma/sir, please blah blah blah"....(with that one line or envelope that would change your life).

The bamboo tree is my greatest motivation!

It makes me keep rooting. It keeps me be aware that something is happening right within and when is matured, the fruits will fall down, so riped, and I did wonder "why did you get this riped?"

If you are not rooting, you may take longer to sprout. While waiting, you need to keep rooting deep into the ground, so that when that blessing caomes upon you, when that door you have been knocking at opens, you will be strong enough to handle it.

The honest truth is; many of us are not yet capable to handle what we ask for. You are not yet capable to handle the fame, the wealth, the relationship ups and downs, to give up sleep😎. Like you need that discipline. We need it. I specially need it. Maybe have not even loved yourself!

This year, start rooting deep. Give yourself a chance to know more. Get in contact with people who know more. Make research, teach yourself more. Let your eyes be opened in different aspects.

While waiting to sprout out, to conquer and to dominate, root deeper!

I am so rooting deeper, praying deeper, reading deeper, working deeper, socialising deeper. Is not going to be easy, but we have to try. A lazy man cannot be a king.

Sometimes, you are coming from a place of pain in your life. Pain that has been persistent for a while. And you don't know what to do about it. You are always sad. You have thought about taking your life many times, but the thought of how your family

This is the question that many ask, and many men are positive about it, but first, the question should be; SHOULD indecent dressing increase the percent of RAPE? In all honesty, let us answer this question like human beings that are not mentally sick

In this world, the people who deserve an applaud for the work they do are those who expose their health for our sake. They are those who get dirty their best of clothes to serve us. They are those who deflect their ego for that job not everyone can

With the help of multi-lingual ability, the power of discrimination can be limited drastically. One would hardly find a reason to neglect or underestimate a global citizen/foreign folk or make him unable to laugh at a local joke in class....

This is a very delicate age, not just for your sister but yourself. If mum, dad or anyone have given you an impression that whatever you do doesn't really matter because you're male, please reset your mindset for your own good! For your own good...

1979 by Blessing Chidinma AMADI

It was a suggestion stampede and laughter filled the room. Many funny suggestions hauled in, but they gave Blake a lot of insight. To end the get together, he introduced Asher as his girlfriend and thanked her duly for the initiative. They were all happy for him. He had succeeded to build stronger the “33 bond" again! The couple decided to start something beautiful with the mixture that left everyone wanting more, and that was the beginning of a company that would later become historic; “33 Export Lager Beer". More historically and memorable, of friendship bonds. Every year, the same time, the 33 class of 1978 came together to celebrate the Blake’s initiative of 1979!

The Assassination of BOWL

It was time for Nisha to bath us, so we get ready for aluminium pot's birthday, and she decided to finish the little detergent she had left before going for the lime colour liquid soap. Who to go first was the problem! I mean I am a bowl. I am expensive. My adoption took a long while because of my rareness. This was the fight. I explained all these to them and they wouldn't listen.
