I recall my MUM telling me about a man in my
hood who became popular for engaging in money
rituals just to buy the 80's edition of the Honda
Prelude. U wouldn't buy that car for 50k today.
Some other guy brutally murdered his brother
(whom their father gave cash to travel for the
purpose of re- stocking their warehouse), just
because he wanted to acquire the rave of the
moment - Pathfinder Jeep. That same vehicle is
now beta described as a coffin. I remember my
whole street gathered to watch a truck deliver a
very large satellite dish to my neighbor's house.
Today a dish one tenth that size delivers 50
times the value and is in almost every student's
room. What about the Volkswagen Santana,
Mercedes Benz V boot, 505 Evolution, Toyota
Crown, all overtaken by latest models of Camry,
Honda, Bugatti, Bentley, X6,Acura and Infinity....
Vanity! A lady left her true love because some
rich guy then persuaded her with a golf, which
turned out to be the only car they ever owned till
date. She found out too late that true love is
invaluable. A friend declared drinks because he
launched the Nokia Communicator for over 100K
in 2002. Today that phone would embarrass the
owner and is a joke compared to the low cost
and everyday phone. What about d MTN sim card
that many people went extra miles before they
bought for over 30k, today you will not buy it at
N100 because all networks are begging people
to even take it for free. Just Recently BBM, that
lots of girls had to do some unspeakable tins for,
just because they want to PING, is now even in
Android phones like Tecno. People are still
making the most horrific sacrifices over 'vanity'
and make enemies over worthless material
things. What can I Say? Look back at that one
thing you wanted to kill or die for years back and
see what has become of it today. There is
absolutely nothing you can't achieve, all you
need is, to be on your ground, a little time and
PATIENCE and you will thank God witout
regrets.Be Wise!
Life itself is Vanity
