Maybe like me, we have at a time quizzed ourselves: what will happen? If a lion so tender and young could be termed a cub is placed with a likewise contemporary calf; what will happen? Well I’m sure that answer is right too, if you did provide any that is. But whatever it is, I hope it’s good enough to point out the fact that we need not associate ourselves with a seemingly unending battle of the strong. Is survival hence tarnished? Certainly not! In fact survival becomes the basis for a united front and maybe biology gets to revise its course of evolution all over again.
Dwelling in the past, sometimes makes us focus majorly on the not so good moments, a critical case of wrong decision and a subsequent course of action. Invariably we tend to revive questions that do not get the right answers which is not based on our ineptitude but that we have rightly placed ourselves with the wrong audience, hence, what we get instead of answers are just platitudes, the perfect reason for a continued battle of the strong – News Flash: We endured, We survived, We’re moving forward. This is only true when we are ready to let our past be our past, when it no longer precede our actions, when we let the actions of our most respected figures remain their actions, when we take to our future en masse, when we no longer do what we can but what we should, when we allow ourselves be rid of corrupt practices frowning at acts in the same vein and doing what we should to curb it, when we are ready to work and walk in tandem which should be subject to oneness of spirit and above all when we are ready to love our fellow citizens just like ourselves. Then, would we have learned from wanting to survive and amassed for ourselves enough strength needed to rewrite the course of evolution and strength they say is in large numbers.
The jungle as we know it is big enough for the survival of the cub and the calf but it is going to take unity and open mindedness to tough the poison of hatred. If we must survive, we must see ourselves not just as citizens but also as equals working in tandem toward our survival and this is substantial enough to eliminate our fears of the thicker jungle (future). When we have survived, what we leave behind is our legacy, which in turn fosters a new, and a sustained way of life.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlighten about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Yes! We are powerful beyond measure to climb the tallest of trees, swim the deepest of rivers, and survive the most violent of storms, powerful enough to tough whatever the jungle terms hardship. Powerful enough to be whatever we want!
Go out there and live your dream.

    I love this.
    Like a great quote said ” Don’t stop running. If you can’t run, keep walking. If you can’t walk, crawl”. Don’t ever give up.
