I am not the type that spends hours at the market pricing the same item from stall to stall before finally going back to the first because it is cheaper- the part that makes some men not want to carry their wives to the market. If the price is fair enough I go for the item and leave as soon as possible (not womanly uhn?).
Well that fateful day I went to the market to buy food items. The market of interest has an uneven topography and the layout was very poor- not like I had an option anyway, it is the biggest market in town. One can actually get lost while trying to locate a stall (or maybe I am not good in that aspect anyway), so I am always alert whenever I go to that market.
The first market woman I met had good looking vegetables on her table but I wasn’t satisfied ( no big deal in being an Oliver Twist ). So, I went to almost every vegetable stall in that market with the hope of finding fresher ones but unfortunately I kept seeing stale looking ones. After a long time, I decided to go to the first stall and then I discovered I could not locate the place again. I tried tasking my brain as to where the stall was located but all to no avail.
Due to time constraint, I settled for the nearest available one and went to buy other things.
That is exactly how people roam all around life, looking for the “best” or the “perfect things”. They keep on the search until they discover at the late hour that there is no perfect thing. People have changed jobs like clothes, in search of the “best” only to settle for something “ less” after a lot of wasted years. People have remained in their state of fantasy about a perfect partner (spiritual, career or personality-wise) until they reach their forties or fifties.
NOTHING IS PERFECT; IT JUST DEPENDS ON HOW YOU TURN WHAT YOU HAVE TO WHAT YOU WANT. What do you think???
