Nollywood actor, Joseph Benjamin has written few words of advice for his fans on how to become positive and better people by indelible marks in ‘the sands of time.’ Read on…
"Good morning Fam, my morning thoughts as I reminisce. As we journey in through this glorious day. Stay positive, leave indelible marks in the sands of time. Marks that will resonate long after you are gone. Make someone's life reflect the goodness that you exude.
Leave a smile on faces wherever you go. Let the thoughts that linger in the hearts of people after you, be inspiring, refreshing and thought provoking. Be a trend, do not give in to the trends. Strive to be a better version of yourself everyday.
Folks around might not always understand you during the process. They will certainly, embrace you after the process. Your life and pattern will then set a standard for living. Because you have allowed truth to be the standard for your life. Making sure that your belief is unwavering. Your focus is not shifting, your vision is not obscured. Always be true to thine own self. Who said you will not make mistakes? Oh you will, tones of them, and I am the chief of making mistakes. But I have realized they are learning curves. They have thought me to be a better version of myself.
I stumble, I fall, I rise, I smile and I glide through the waves and turbulence that life and it's complications throw at me. I have been hurt many times, my process also must have hurt certain folks. Maybe through my decisions and oblivious altercations.
My past and it's choices, most times came visiting. I made peace with it and myself, and have learnt from the experiences that it brought. Hence I strive to be a better version of myself and careful about the choices I make today. Being true to who i am, and making my footprints indelible.
So like in the famous words of Beyoncé, but in my own version. I will be confident to say ( I WAS HERE I LIVED, I LEARNT, MY LIFE IS A GLORY AND NOT A GRIND) have a blessed day Fam," he wrote.
