Rolayo's Journal: "Simplicity"

Rolayo's Journal is the very interesting story of a young lady. It's a journal that showcases what she passes through- the fun times, the not-so-fun times, the temptations and the trials of her every day life. It's a journal being kept for her unborn child who she plans to call-"Kikelomo"....It's being featured on this blog occasionally on Tuesdays....i'm sorry today's entry is coming in today... Just incase you missed the last journal entry you could catch up HERE

Here's the 33rd journal entry...Enjoy!

Title: "Simplicity"

Dear Kike,

I find a lot of things attractive. It’s like a gift...I tend to look for the beauty in anything or anyone, and also to give people the benefit of the doubt. Most times, it’s a beautiful trait, but other times, people misuse the trust. Of the numerous traits that I like to see in a human being, one of the attributes I admire the most is “simplicity”. I don’t know what it is about it, but it totally endears a person to my heart. 

The simplicity I am talking about isn’t simple- mindedness, but a simplicity  of character; a simplicity in aura. I like a person who just is- not too much airs and graces about them.

I have an uncle who is accomplished and successful in his career, and is also a father and a husband. Everyone complains that he talks too much! He can engage you in a 7-hour long conversation if you let him. On the other hand, I admire him a lot. He can find his way around any city just by “flying okada” and “jumping cabs”. He doesn’t mind making his own cup of tea or his own food or just giving help to people around him. 

I need to learn to live simply too. To 'un-complicate' my life and live it to the fullest. I need to learn to take things as they happen not take them so personally. I suggest that you do the same thing too (as per doctors orders) :-) You’d probably be happier and live longer. As for the side effects... I dunno of any! :-D Maybe people who don’t get you may take you for granted tho- but who cares?! It’s your own life, live it!.
