If you get what you want, will you really want what you get?
That I used to bite my nails is no longer history but that I’m trying so hard to keep them LONG should be in the Guinness world book of records * do those books still exist self*?
I had bitten my nails for the better part of my life and trust me when I say that I had battled with keeping them long, or at least make them presentable. I fixed my nails severally especially when I had an event, so as not to embarrass myself. When I had to shake someone or do anything with my hands in public, I had to apply great caution. When anyone asked why I bit my nails, I always had to be economical with the truth( or if you chose to call it lie) most times saying that I liked my nails short just when I couldn’t keep my hands from my mouth was the truth.
I met some tall dark handsome,take home to papa/mama, propose to me, make me your wife brother early in the year, I was quite busy at the time so I couldn’t get my nails fixed. I was stunned when the brother specifically asked to see my nails after going on about how he likes well manicured nails. Biko, Na so I no gree call the brother or pick him call again oh as I shame pass the word SHAME. The embarrassment was impeccable.
Anyway, I now have long nails and all thanks to my one and only doctor-Mama Vero as she treated my nails to its present healthy state.
However, there is a problem, most times when I’m in the kitchen, I get so careful not to hurt myself or damage my nails. Just yesterday, I almost cut off my nail/finger due to being overly careful not to destroy my long& well manicured nails. Immediately, I asked myself ‘is this really worth it’?
Now that I have long nails, I have to be careful so as not to hurt myself; need to be careful for it not to break. Ever heard ‘each new level has a new devil to deal with’? Well, you may feel I’m taking this small matter overboard but all I could conclude is this ‘after getting what we want, will we really want what we get’?
Many at times, we want different things at different times for different reasons. Whether those things are good for us or not is inconsequential at the time. Some of us go all out to get what we want irrespective of whose toes we step on in the process. We hurt family, friends& loved ones all because we need to get whatever the ‘it’ is.
Biko, my well manicured nails need to rest. As we go through this week, may we be careful of what we wish for or want?
So, think about this ‘If you get what you want, will you really want what you get’?
