Like Martin Luther King, Jr., I always seek to see the positive side of things. I believe the end goal is for the good of everyone. Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. Fortunately or unfortunately, what we see is usually what we get. If you expect failure, misery or disaster, that is what becomes your guest of honour, dictates the kind of friends you keep, and even the quality of your life. If you choose to see prosperity, health, a happy marriage and a better ending, that is what usually comes your way.
The saying: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams,” is one I hold true. What reminded me about this fact is an encounter I had recently with a woman who had last year been forced out of the chang’aa selling business. Unlike the people who used to buy drinks from her, she looked decent and one can only tell she was in that business if she or someone else tells you so.
