Sometimes you have a floating feeling as if everything happening is not to you but to another person and that’s good. Sometimes, you don’t know. Sometimes, it’s best that way because sometimes, it’s best to figure out that that they lied and progress isn’t in linear motions: sometimes, you have to move backwards to move forward. Sometimes, you go in spirals.

Sometimes, you have to hold on to let go. Sometimes, you need to let go to hold on. Sometimes, it’s not a simple equation of two plus two and the fractions and decimals get grounded into larger word problems and it may take time to figure out. Sometimes, you need to read and reread for it to make sense. So sometimes you have to run to become a better fighter.

Sometimes, reading makes you a better writer. That means that sometimes experiencing pain may make you stronger.

Today, the 24th of May 2021 is the birthday of a very close friend of mine — Moyosore. Happy birthday, Moyo. I wish you all the best in life. I pray that God blesses you exceedingly and abundantly above everything you can wish and ask for.

This is Cruise Control. Until next time, I am Oloye Emeka saying life na cruise, catch am.
