Must every hunger taste a meal?
Must every thirst sip a drink?
Some appetites should be put on check and some desires must be calmed.

Certain chances may be enthising but taking hold of them could spell doom.
Not every free meal is truely free.
Be sure before you get involved.

A thrilling adventure, a daring escapade,
a risky business or a dicey affair.
These may be fun while they last but
draw the thin line between safety and risk!

Some things generate excitement but expose the ones involved to risk.
Some others are outright crimes but feel like the cool thing to do.

Evaluate your desires and drives,
filter them and sift off chaff,
make healthy choices and be a worthy model; gratifying only worthy desires.

I once made a related comparism.
I asked the question; Fulfilment Or Acquisition?
This time around I’m considering the emotion.
Check before gratification!

It’s not about what’s in vogue but about how you feel afterwards.
Properly consider gratification and don’t forget to ask: Who Is In Charge?

-Nnamonu Tochukwu.


About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!
