As we all are aware…except for some ‘over-exagerrated Ajebutters’, Beans is common name for food. Some people like porridge beans while others prefer beans with rice, ___*add anything u like(just fill in d blank)* or bread as the case may be with the YORUBa PURZONs(no offense). However you want it, we all Love the end product.
What begs this piece though is the day I was asked to pick 1 mudu of beans that would later metamorphorse to Dinner. I literarily went through the valley of the shadow of ‘whatever’ trying to separate the actual bean seeds from the ‘dorty’ and weevle infested seeds. “A herculean task” I thought to myself. I mean, I felt like the ladies in the house should be responsible for picking the mudu of beans that I would eventually eat. *big grin*
A popular saying goes that “We eat to live and not live to eat” and this begs the question- what exactly are we eating? Life could be likened to food preparation; everyday a call to pick ‘1 mudu of beans’.
I Began little by little, picking the dirt and bad seeds. These could be our bad attitudes and thoughts and also the wrong set of people we surround ourselves with. At every point in time we should do a check to see if our friends are actually good bean seeds or they are gradually been ‘eaten up’ by weevles. And as i continued picking, I got to a point where I felt like doing a ‘(p)rbeansing Break’ only to return after food is ready. But instead of acting long film, I started picking the good bean seeds ignoring the dirt which was easier for me. As we grow in Life,we get to a point where the most important thing is knowing and choosing the good and bypassing the wrongs but not ignoring them totally so you don’t mistakenly put them together with the good. Mistakes could happen.
And so I finished picking this beans. It was a victory worth celebrating, so……As A sure Boy.._*enter MayD lyrics here*_…. I pop champagne naaa…. Lwkm. When we are done identifying the good around Us, we then have to cook.
“There are no shortage of good days but Good lives” ;however u choose to prepare ur beans or ur life as the case may be ensure that your recipe is a winning one bearing in mind that we only have one Life to live. On A ‘lighter note’, the WHITE CHAMBER awaits my arrival; that ewa was one in town. Adios….
