After High School..
All your classmates went in different directions into the world to find their place.

Some later acquired university education and are now:
Administrators, etc.
Some are married,
Some now have kids, while some are still searching and waiting on divine visitations.
Shockingly, Some are dead too, don't forget that.
And others are on the sick bed.
Some are running their higher degrees: Masters, PHD, etc. trying to add to their profile.
Some haven't even gained admission into the tertiary institution and may NEVER be able to.
Some Even own companies,
Some are now Directors and major shareholders in global companies.

How do you feel When you meet your classmates, and it seems like he/she has accomplished their dreams And you're not yet close to yours?
So many thoughts run through your mind, right?
First, you think God has not been fair to you.

How about the ones you meet on the street wearing dirty cloths and still struggling for survival ?
Do you get the same thoughts running through your mind?
I guess, NO.
Don't forget too that some are already dead.
Somehow it feels natural to have that feeling of jealousy for those mates who seem better off, but it is really unnecessary,

There is no room for regrets,
We are all different and our paths to greatness are also not the same in distance.
Some might have arrived earlier before you and some after you, but whatever level you find yourself in life,
Please keep trying to break limitations and move further.
Celebrate the success of others, its an indication that yours too shall surely come.
Your friend buys a car now, be happy with him/ her.
Remember when you'll buy yours,
theirs might not be the latest again.
There's no permanent champion, but current champion.

Life is not about competition, do not be in a race with anyone; remember, we may seem to be reading the same book but different chapters at different times.
Don't let the passion in you kill the desire in you, keep it burning.
What you're passing through today;
Write it down because one day the world would be ready to read it, they'll become part of your success story.

There's no height you cannot attain, believe in yourself, define your goals, recognize distractions and don't stop striving.
Spend time teaching yourself, because those things that mainly take people to the top are the things they devoted their time to develop.
Don't be intimidated by your friend's success, the sky is wide enough for birds to fly without touching one another.
Value every little thing that God brings into our life, love God and obey Him.
For with God, all things are possible.

*Now to those who are already on top, Never forget to give a helping hand to those who are down. Because Life is full of uncertainties; the one you helped today to the top might end up being the one to pull you tomorrow from falling.

Thanks @goldbuyer for appreciating this post, i hope to keep up with the writing.

We had a reunion of our graduating class of 2000 for the first time last two months.
What you were saying here played out accurately. Some are getting married now, some have kids taking Jamb, some are praying for 'miracle' and some have gone to the great beyond.

This life get as e be!

Thank you very much @buckydurddle, i lack words to express this gesture, your support and encouragement is heroic. Thank you.

Makes sense
I wish to have nice friends like all of you are in this photo

Very happy nice post


Awww! Thanks @flysky, you will definitely find nice and good friends.

This is so beautiful and really makes you think.


Thanks @magicalmoonlight. It just brings to mind the realities of life.

Great post @favoursampson. Love this line: "Celebrate the success of others, its an indication that yours too shall surely come." I feel sorry for those who are unable to do this! Thanks for sharing.


Aww! Thank you, i'm glad you found something interesting in it. Our shoulders should always be available for others to lean on.

Thanks favoursampsom this is real inspiration at some point I was like that I just hear news that a class mate bought a car and he is building then i would be filled with jealousy but i learnt to tell myself "that the same God who did it for him will surely do the same for me"


Thanks @Ireneblessing, its totally understandable to feel that way some times, i once refused to attend my High School reunion because i felt i had nothing to be proud about and might not be able to answer certain questions from other classmates but now i know better just be proud of what you've achieved so far and more will come. Thanks for reading.


oh, @favoursampson your experience is fun it has made me smile but truthfully whatever step we take in life we should credit God

True and inspiring


Thank you @faithfulomoy i'm glad you stopped by.


you welcome dear

Great write up. Any position we found ourselve in life, we must appreciate it and also learn to support others


Thanks @maximumheight, you're totally on point.
