Living In The Past

One of the best decisions in life one can make is dealing with present reality by managing attending situations of life within contemporary means. It is often said that it is the decisions made and actions undertaken in the past that brought us where we are now. That is looking at it from a systemic angle.

With life come choices and chances. There is different between stand-up and stand-up now. You can easily recall how many times you came late to the party (delayed in taking a necessary step to achieving a portion of success). Mind you, the world comes with its surprises.

That day, yet to take my bath in the early morning, it was my ethos not to taste anything called food until I brushed and had shower in the morning.
The menu that fateful morning was boiled yam and fried egg. I use spice just like the Chinese when doing my fried egg. Yam was perfectly boiled and good to go. I took my time and added some cayenne pepper, sardine, sesame oil, onions, blended pepper and tomatoes, thyme and magi cubes. It was going to be luscious super.
