THANK YOU, WORDPRESS

This is a little different from what I have always written. I only so indebted that I really have to write this and if I don’t I  won’t be satisfied.

I had noticed that I had a flair for writing right from a tender age but couldn’t get a plat form to do. I thought that I will go to the university to study a course like mass communication and major in the print media so that I can always write but my dream came to an end when I gained admission into the university to study physics/electronics. For five years, I see my dream run away from me without me being able to chase it. I live everyday wishing that I could showcase what I have and master my art of writing.

Then I came across wordpress.com and things never remained the same since that day. I have been able to get my confidence back. I am able to write my articles and my thoughts now. I am to show the world what I have inside and I can now develop my writing skills. I am grateful to wordpress.com for bringing close to thousands of writers that I can read, learn and develop myself.

thank you

I just want to use this article to say thank you for giving this opportunity.

DO IT YOURSELF

Hello peeps, it’s good to be back here again to pick up from where I stopped that last time. What do I have today…*thinking*…okay, I am writing on a subject that I feel will affect most of us  because it is a thing that we overlook most times but which can be very helpful and beneficial in many ways.

Have you seen this abbreviation anywhere before now, D.I.Y. not many of us will readily remember what it means except for the headline of this article, it actually stands for DO IT YOURSELF which I will be referring to as DIY in this article.

DIY is actually as the name implies is refers to any activity that you do yourself without calling on the attention of a skilled personnel or a professional. Most cases, DIY occurs when we need to build, modify or repair something. Let me share my experience before I continue with the article

ImageTwo days back, I was in the kitchen cooking and my mom was also there too at about 8:00 PM, when suddenly the bulb went off and there was total darkness in the kitchen. It was so dark that we could barely see ourselves until I brought out my phone, thank God that it had torchlight. As was the custom in my house, replacing a burnt bulb was always never an issue, so I got a new bulb, got the domestic ladder and 1, 2, 3 up I went to the top of the ladder fix the bulb, and as I was about doing that, the lamp holder just pulled off the wire that it was attached to. On seeing this, the next word that came out of my mum’s mouth was the name of our electrician. Obviously, my mum was implying that we will need to call on the electrician to come and fix it. The electrician is one young man who does every electrical work in our house, from installation to maintenance to repairs, so it was not out-of-place that she mentioned his name.

But I was immediately infuriated for so many reasons, ranging from the fact that I could do but I wouldn’t be given a chance to the fact that if they decide to call the electrician, he will bring a bill for just fixing a lamp holder back to its place and replacing the bulb. That moment I resolved that I was going to imbibe the spirit of DIY, which I successfully did and the kitchen is lightened up again.

There are so many benefits when you DIY. You will be able to save the money you are supposed to give professionals for doing what you actually can do. As much as you may feel that this amounts are so small, but the truth is this little amounts of money when saved will obviously make a huge amount in no time.

Another benefit of DIY is the fact that you get to become knowledgeable in areas you never would have thought you could. There’s a popular sayings. ‘’no knowledge is a waste’’, that is the result when you DIY, you never can tell when that knowledge u gathered from doing it yourself will be needed and appreciated.

ImageFurthermore, when you DIY, it gives you confidence that no matter what time of the day or month or year that anything needs repair, you’ll certainly have no fear of not getting professionals, since you can do it yourself. Though, while it is true that it’s not all faults that we can fix ourselves but the little ones that don’t need some much skill can be done without the help of any skilled personnel.

Finally, DIY cuts across many aspects of life, it isn’t limited to a particular sphere, so everybody can Learn to DIY today as it goes a long way in helping you solve some minor issues on time every time.

QUOTE ME

Many a times, I found myself feeling down and inadequate to continue something I started because I feel I am not doing it up to standard or am just not good enough in doing it. At those times, I just remember one particular quote that has always got me going and I say it loudly, “it can only get better” and at those times I found out that I just get up, puts my acts together and get going.

it acn only get better

For some very few reasons, this quote gets me going because in everything I do, the room to always get better is always left open. One thing, if I feel so inadequate about what I am doing and being tempted to believe that I am not good enough at what I do, then I simply say ,”it can only get better”. I never give up whenever i remember this magic quote.

Yet another reason why I keep going back to that quote is that even when I feel that I am good at what I do, I know that I can’t get it 100 per cent right, then I also look at myself and say that it can always get better. This quote is so important to me that I keep coming back to it over and over and over again because, every sphere of life is improved based on the fact that everything we do van always get better. As a blogger, though I might not have gotten to the vantage point, I might even still be at the bottom of the ladder with respect to writing good articles with very good style of writing, but it can only get better.

For me, that is the magic quote that gets me going, what is yours, and why do you go back to it again and again?
