Inspiring you! Look at the bigger picture

Hey Lovelies
As usual, I looked out of my window again, it is one of my favorite things to do as my room is on the second floor, which allows me to get a great view of the city centre that is but a few metres away. It is always a pleasant sight and I never fail to take it all in. This time around, I brought out my camera to make a few clicks. I am not a good photographer, but it was more about getting a representation of the beautiful image to linger.

                                It's not as good as the real picture, but it will serve for the good memories either way. 


I never see that part when I am out walking those paths. I see one building, then the next; I see streets that look better than others. Some of the lights from the building shine brighter than others, some do not have the lights turned on; but when I look down from my window, what I usually see is a consistent picture of a beautiful city, with all the lights glimmering concordantly. The interesting bit is the closer you get to it, the more the whole beauty diminishes.

This is exactly how life is. When you are caught up in an aspect of life (yours or anyother's) what you see is just that aspect. It may be beautiful on it's own, it may not be, but one thing is sure, it is not as beautiful as when you sum it up and look at the whole picture. Some of us like to focus on the 'lows', forgetting that they are meant to complement the 'highs' so when you put it all together, it should make for a great picture. Some of the buildings in my picture look more beautiful than others when viewed closely; some are taller than others, some are better crafted, but whenever I look at this view from my room, all I see is a beautiful image that works perfectly, with the beauty and the lights blending in from all angles. 

We make the mistake of capitalizing on the negatives that we have in life. We allow them weigh us down and forget about the positives. We look at our hands that are not "perfectly shaped" and ignore the legs that everyone seems to compliment. We look at what we have on our plate now and forget what we had some moments back. When you find yourself in your worst moments, think about the best ones too. When you feel down and it seems the situations that are vivid are those that only seem to drive you nuts, step back a little and sum up your life into one big picture, what you will see will amaze you. The big picture is what you should always concentrate on. When things aren't working, it is because you are focusing too much on one part. Step back and look from a distant, and you will appreciate the beauty that your life is.

Have a great week ahead

Love always

  1. Turn Up turn up mama. Okay i so concur. When i was in Uni yeah, often times i and my Big cuz would be broke for Africa ehn, and we would just stay in the room feeling all gloomy and easing up and down. And then Bam!!! That very moment we would get cash, we would come together and cook a very ghen ghen meal with this Millionaire smiles on our faces, and just before we ate what ever Biafra concursion we had succeeded in cooking, we would say to ourselves: ""Day wey we chop, make we remember days when we no get"" lmao.. Thinking about it is kinda Funny now, but it was not funny then oh! You see Mama, life in my eyes is a bloody confusion, but I am learning that focusing on the very present during sad times will only make us more gloomy, but thinking about the possibility of a glorious future, as well as summing up all our blessings and counting them one by one would most definitely help us see that indeed, Echi di ime( meaning Tomorrow is pregnant), and that today, this very moment, that it aint that bad afterall. Cheers Mama, and do have a ghen ghen week ahead... Its christmas in 9 days.. jingle Bell is playing in my head ooo :) :)

  2. I totally agree. We are almost always focusing on the things we don't have, completely ignoring what amazing things we already have. It's said that we have no idea what we've got until we loose it....sad but true. Like duru says, thinking about the possibility of a glorious future should help you move forward and not linger on should haves.
    Merry Christmas
