You had the priviledge to be delivered in a best class hospital, I was born at home and both of us survived.

You went to a private primary school and I went to a public primary school, we both graduated to the high school.

You could afford to study in Kings College, I could only afford the government college, but we both took the senior school exams and excelled.

You proceeded to the prestigious University, I struggled to work and pay for my studies at the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN). We ended up with thesame NUC recognized degrees.

You got up from the bed this morning and I rose from the floor, we both had a blissful night rest.

Your clothings are all high-priced, mine are just there. We are still covering our nakedness.

You ate fried rice garnished with a tasty sauce and roasted chicken, I had locally made food, but we were both satisfied.

You ride on a very expensive car, and I use public vehicle but we still arrive at our destination safely.

You may be reading this post from your Samsung Galaxy S9 or Iphone X but I typed it with my IPhone 4 (broken screen), we bothl view the post.

Lifestyle is not a contest and there are so many approches to adopt in getting a lot of things done, different tracks all leading towards the same finish line.

Just because your fellow is achieving things faster does not mean that you are not progressing.

Happiness does not come from possessing everything, but making the best with what you have, it has to do with how you see yourself.

Happiness is not having what you like but liking what you already have, and being contented.

That is my point.
