Upgrade Avaible! Do you need one?

Have you ever been complimented with the words "Forever young". In the sense of fashion and looks, it seems glamorous but if you are not scared of aging with grace, it should keep you thinking. You need that growth.

Once in a while you recharge your mobile phone and upgrade the old version of your anti-virus, facebook, whats app or black berry messenger app, that is a nice thing to do. So you upgrade your software and applications then sit like Humpty-Dumpty on a wall without an upgrade for yourself? Receive my sympathy.

Every season, young energetic players spring up in the world of soccer but the older lions like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are not chased back into the jungle because they are constantly engaged in training and upgrading themselves. No matter how good you are at what you do, everyone needs an upgrade.
It could come in form of reading, carrying out research work, more hours of practice, creating a larger network (your network often directs your net worth), taking up a different or new task and more.

The need for this cuts across professions not minding if you are a teacher, bricklayer, writer, doctor, lawyer, dancer, singer, baker, banker, student, motivational speaker, the list is endless. In every profession, there is a daily march of an emerging and promising formidable force.

Dare to be stuck right where you are and watch yourself being shoved into the bush.

So, rather than lie there like spilled red wine on a dinning table, let's go get an upgrade.

Heads up, people! 

Walking into a shop to purchase an item does not look appealing to me anymore. This is one of my decisions for the new year being that if something is not worth it then there is no point buying it especially trying to impress another fellow. 

I have chosen to stick to buying experiences rather 'things.' One of my observation is that experiences cannot be stolen or compromised. They stick like your gum sap sticks to a tree. 

So maybe before you buy that expensive Emporio Armani wristwatch or Jimmy Choo shoes, it might be imperative to checkmate if there are experiences that same amout can buy you. Don't get me wrong, it is as clear as crystal that you need to shop for clothings, food, phones or luxury from time to time but bear in mind that your happiness can't be tied to any item. That vibe you get is nothing but a fleeting one .

Chioma was that child that will send you hiding your clothes and wrappers far away from her reach for the fear that she will tear them in shreds out of the zeal of designing and making clothes. Her first skirt was made at the age of twelve. 
"Nobody taught me to sew, nobody close to me sews, I didn't even know it was a 6 pieces skirt I sewed till I finally went to a fashion school," She says with an air of humour. 

"I also made bags and a pair of slippers from an old Jean material that happened to be my old skirt. My mum marveled at the thought of Jean slippers then but now we see Jean slippers everywhere." She continues. 
Chioma Vanessa who prefers to go by the alias 'God's favourite daughter' is a graduate of the Federal University of Technology Owerri, an entrepreneur and the present CEO of Nessa Design and Stitches (NDS). A young Fashion and Designing outfit that not only makes great outfits but also runs mini fashion tutorials.

I watched Fisayo click away on his camera between flashes of light. It was at an event about promoting Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's).

I checked some boxes after our interaction. He is industrious, a supporter of social good and very efficient. Call me a stalker of amazing young people and you won't be far from the truth.
