Rantings from a fellow Nigerian

Another four hours today, and a website I am designing isn’t even responsive yet. Painfully It doesn’t even look like it. Trust me, it’s energy-draining. Nonetheless, just like the words of a good friend of mine:

Think about the profit😌


More than the pain you see today is the gain ahead. It’s a process, and time will tell.

Oh! Back to today’s post. I have decided to rant today, and it’s a beautiful one.

For a while, I have been in a different state in Nigeria, not until the ASUU strike caused a shift. While I got home, and till now, I had an experience with the electricity distributors. πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ It seems like the rain affects them a lot.

I was amazed at the kind of electricity they supplied to my street. What caught my attention and made me write today’s post was the different types of bulbs around my environment.

Should our hearts leap for joy when NEPA brings light? What should be the right for individuals is now becoming something we hardly get πŸ˜”

πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ From a distance, when I was walking home, I saw the white bulb and it was very bright. I was glad and thought to myself, Nepa has changed.

Lies!!! They were the same πŸ˜‚ it was just the bulb that deceived me.

After walking a few distances from the white bulb, I was disappointed after seeing the yellow bulb. The light was still dim. The difference was clear, and here are two lessons I got from these bulbs πŸ˜‰

Same opportunities, different outcomes

Okay, I know physics, lumen and watts have a part in this. That is another tale πŸ˜‚

Two parties may be given the same opportunity. While one may thrive, the other might not.

While it is true that the same current passes through these different bulbs, their respective outcomes differ. You will appreciate this better at night.

Opportunities! They come in different ways, consciously or unconsciously. For instance, access to the internet is an opportunity. When it’s your turn, what do you get back in return?

Situations but different reactions

πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ Shay it’s a bulb that is teaching all these bayi? Come on! You just learn the lessons.

Both yellow bulbs and white bulbs passes through a lot (poor power supply) their build differs, so also their reactions (the light that shines).

How well are you stuffed from within? What makes up your core values? What’s with God and you? How well are you grounded in His word to keep your being and sanity?

Hey dear, build up from within. How much value do you invest in yourself? Situations necessarily need not be unpleasant. What if you got that opportunity you ever sought for are you ready?

So, here’s a pause to my ranting and my experience with the light bulb πŸ˜„

Don’t forget to share your thoughts in the comment box. Thank you so much for your presence here 🀭

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Truly the white bulb seems brighter than the yellow bulb… ( Both are powered from the same source )… The fact is, invest in yourself, build up from within, have consistent communion with God, and sincerely, people will see your good work, the results of your efforts, and will ask you, why is yours different? why do everything about you differ? (….. It must…. Just like the outcome reaction of the white bulb..)

  2. Omo. I’m ngl this piece just made ne realize that I have the same opportunity that some people do. It’s just my ability to push that determines how far I’ll go.

  3. I was thrilled to read this not just because of the style of writing but how relatable this is.

    It was a nice rant! And I loved how you coined lessons from it
