Procrastination…

I am most genuiely not proud of this but i put the pro in procrastination. If there were awards for procastinators, i doubt i will have enough space for my plaques.This picture is the typical everyday me, pushing over ever single thing I mean everything till a later time or date. I debate with myself on things as simple as taking a bath, eating, praying , reading and writing its that bad.

Procastination Is that thing that subtly steals time, always making you do what you dont need to do at expense of things that should be done. Procastinate now then apply the fire brigade approach later, always putting yourself under undue pressure.

With procastination i have learnt the easiest ways to overcoming it is to first, believe in my ability to actually do what i ought to with that in mind giving me the boost of confidence needed, i start the task with the hardest making it easier to complete the task. Its easier to finish something that is started, the most important thing is starting, once in a race you are bound to get to the finish line willingly or not it’s just the logical thing to do.

Let me tell you a story……

 

It’s trying to suffocate me, I am been strangled, this is It,I should just give up, this excruciating pain is worse than any I have ever felt, I didn’t think it will be this bad,I didn’t bargain for this,I am looising my will, I am better off not strugling the harder I try the more torture it is, I should give up this is beyond what I can handle. I will just be quiet and stop struggling,yes it feels better now, perfect not so bad after all i did’t I have to put myself through all the torture and pain. 


The peace is deafening why is it so peaceful, I want peace but this is not right,it’s so quiet and empty,i need to retrace my steps and atleast see what is on the other side. Oh not here again i dont know if i can go through this tortue again, what do i do now, i have to choose but what? How do i even choose? this uncomfortable peace or that struggle?

I am stronger than this, i gotta fight back, i know i can, i should at least try and see what is trying to kill me. I am fighting. I will overcome. A kick, a blow, it hates voilence, a knock i am doing it, its retreating, let me try talking to it, wow it cringes when i talk, this is easy i am crushing it, i see the light i just have to finish this nameless creature. I did it i succeeded , the light here is way better than the uncomfortable peace, i am glad i did it.


The fear of the Unknown is a battle we all fight in our minds, it’s what every one has had to deal with at one time or the other. The struggle to be or not to be, the real hustle to get it done and over with. What most of us fail to understand Is life Is all about taking risks, everyday is a fight, a struggle, an oppourtunity to win. The moment you let fear have control over your mind and you stop trying then you are as good as dead. With life the struggle never ends, you have got to decide if you want to have peace and be stuck in nowhere, or move on and fight the good fight knowing fully well that there is always light at the other side.

Today in History

Having a little bit of time on my hands and not having much to do, I typed in the words that will now be the topic of this post, while going through great past events of time this particular story stuck out and I gave it my undivided attention. It is a little lengthy but i assure you it will be worth your while.

1955- Rosa Parks ignited the bus boycott.

In Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks is jailed for refusing to give up her seat on a public bus to a white man, a violation of the city’s racial segregation laws. The successful Montgomery Bus Boycott, organized by a young Baptist minister named Martin Luther King, Jr., followed Park’s historic act of civil disobedience.
“The mother of the civil rights movement,” as Rosa Parks is known, was born in Tuskegee, Alabama, in 1913. She worked as a seamstress and in 1943 joined the Montgomery chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
According to a Montgomery city ordinance in 1955, African Americans were required to sit at the back of public buses and were also obligated to give up those seats to white riders if the front of the bus filled up. Parks was in the first row of the black section when the white driver demanded that she give up her seat to a white man. Parks’ refusal was spontaneous but was not merely brought on by her tired feet, as is the popular legend. In fact, local civil rights leaders had been planning a challenge to Montgomery’s racist bus laws for several months, and Parks had been privy to this discussion.
Learning of Parks’ arrest, the NAACP and other African American activists immediately called for a bus boycott to be held by black citizens on Monday, December 5. Word was spread by fliers, and activists formed the Montgomery Improvement Association to organize the protest. The first day of the bus boycott was a great success, and that night the 26-year-old Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., told a large crowd gathered at a church, “The great glory of American democracy is the right to protest for right.” King emerged as the leader of the bus boycott and received numerous death threats from opponents of integration. At one point, his home was bombed, but he and his family escaped bodily harm.
The boycott stretched on for more than a year, and participants carpooled or walked miles to work and school when no other means were possible. As African Americans previously constituted 70 percent of the Montgomery bus ridership, the municipal transit system suffered gravely during the boycott. On November 13, 1956, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Alabama state and Montgomery city bus segregation laws as being in violation of the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. On December 20, King issued the following statement: “The year old protest against city buses is officially called off, and the Negro citizens of Montgomery are urged to return to the buses tomorrow morning on a non-segregated basis.” The boycott ended the next day. Rosa Parks was among the first to ride the newly desegregated buses.
Martin Luther King, Jr., and his nonviolent civil rights movement had won its first great victory. There would be many more to come.
Rosa Parks died on October 24, 2005. Three days later the U.S. Senate passed a resolution to honor Parks by allowing her body to lie in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.

This story brings a lot of things to mind,the boldness and courage of this woman even though it is said it wasn’t pre planned,it just goes a long way to tell us that even in our subconscious somethings stick. I can imagine what was going on in her head, how tired and frustrated with the level of racism then, she stood her ground and didn’t give up her right to sit like any human with or without colour. As extraordinary as this story is,it saddens me to realise that racism still thrives not just in the states but all over the world. My hope is that some day really soon we all will get to understand that we are just passing through this world and every individual is equal in the eyes of our maker,no segregation whatsoever we are all one race. God bless all peoples and nations of the world.

Welcome to the last Month of 2016,I hope you get all you hoped to.

Cheers.
