As innocent as children are, they can be bothered about what someone thinks of them, and in trying to impress people, they lose their dreams and childhood.
There is always something new to learn from Aunty Betty Irabor, in a recent Instagram post she listed the 8 things she would do differently if she had the chance to live her childhood all over again. Simple but really powerful.
If I were to live my childhood all over again, there are many things I would do differently …
I will raise my hand in class and ask “stupid” questions and risk being laughed at.
I will not give up my passion for sports ( hurdles) because someone said my knocked knees were pronounced when I ran,
I will make more effort in my math class even though Mrs Osho called me olodo,
I will smile more because it enhances my beauty.
I will not play victim because I was raised by a single mum,
I Will face and challenge my demons instead of running away,
I will fight back and get my hands dirty instead of always recoiling.
I will appreciate that I have invisible wings and that all I need to do is flap my hands and fly..
But thank God I got a chance to be all that I thought I couldn’t be… It’s morning yet..
