‘Light up the world with a match stick’ – Chuka Royalty.

Do you ever find yourself frustrated with the world and the people in it. People can wear their plastic smiles and everyone is so keen to ‘fit in’ when we were all born different?! I read somewhere that one of the most tragic things is to die a copy when we were all born to be unique. I realised some years ago that I did not want to be like everyone pone else. I set my heart on being extraordinary. However to think something and follow through with action is not always the easiest thing. In fact sometimes it can be very hard.

We can often make decisions but the opinions and input of others can make us reconsider our previous convictions. I fell into the trap of allowing too many people into my thought process. I found I could not please everyone and the frustration and stress of expectations was too much. I had to do some soul searching and discover my life’s purpose. Why was I created? What can I bring to the earth? How can I show God’s love to people? How can I live every day with passion?

The thoughts led me to what I believe my life purpose is: to be an inspirational writer and singer. However with any journey there are obstacles and turns in the road that can make you think that somewhere along the line you got it wrong. Sometimes even friends and family can make you think you do not know who you are. When you feel pressed upon do not give up on you. You should not give up on you because your creator hasn’t. God has you alive for a reason.

Here’s a great song to keep you going.

As Chuka Royalty says “You can light up the world with a matchstick!”

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: www.nissiknows.wordpress.com My literature blog: www.plantainperiodicals.wordpress.com NMx
