Choose Your Battles Wisely

This is not my last blog post for the year but i thought it wise to drop this piece before the year ends. We live in a time where battles are inevitable. We must be wise as to choosing the battles we fight. You cannot pay attention to every dog that barks just because it is very loud. Sometimes, all you need to do is pretend you did not  hear the dog bark.

If you live your life paying attention to every passer by or listening to every word that drops, you will end up hurting yourself. Sometimes, act like you did not see the passer by or simply ignore the word. You just have to choose your battles wisely, that’s all i’m trying to say.


Personally, i used to have a problem ignoring people or their actions towards me, but i must tell you the truth today, i am an advocate of that now. It’s the best thing you can do for yourself. Ignoring them does not mean you dislike them or you’re not man enough to face the situation; it only means you just cannot afford to stoop so low or get into unnecessary dramas with anyone. 

If no one has ever spoken a word about you that hurt you badly, then this article is not for you, but i’m not sure there is anyone who has not been hurt or betrayed by someone. You probably may have reacted with words or actions then, but i must tell you today, ignoring them is far better.

You cannot afford to get into the year 2019 with same people, dramas and battles. You need to be a better person in 2019. If you must fight any battle, make sure it’s worth it. Some battles are meant to take your peace away and you need that peace my darling. Therefore, choose your battles wisely.

Love Your Pace

There is actually no need to put yourself under unnecessary pressure. Don’t go worrying about how fast others are moving and it looks like you are on a stand still, you will hurt yourself. Learn to love your pace and look  less unto others because I’ve come to realize that everyone progresses differently in life. Your pace is far different from others so do 2019 with this consciousness. 

Be With God More.

Trust me when i say you need God more than ever before. Nothing works without God. He  knows you better than yourself and He can never leave you nor forsake you. In the year 2019, love God some more and be with Him through it all.


Well, if you know me well, you will know how much i cherish smiling. Smiling makes you look younger and better. Don’t do 2019 with a sad and heavy look o, try as much as possible to smile at least. Come to think of it, if you stay angry, the situation cannot change, so why not try and give a smile instead.Trust me when i say the year may not be all that nice,i mean it’ll definitely come with it’s challenges but Smile through it all. 

Trust Your Instincts

Trusting your instincts is one thing you should never fail to do all through the year 2019. 

Render Help

Help those who cannot repay you. Do it and make life better for them. There are rewards when you help the helpless. In the year 2019, don’t shut your eyes to the needs of those who need it.

There is so much i would like to say, but i need to stop here for now. We are just few days away to saying goodbye to the year 2018, personally i cannot wait as i know the year 2019 is my year of triumphing graciously… I wish you a better year in 2019.

 I hope this article helped you in a way, please, a lovely comment would be nice. Just say something and let me know you were here. I sincerely thank you for visiting the blog and i plea that you tell others about the blog as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you. See you in a bit.
