It’s sad that people go their whole lives searching for something they already have. I was at a party recently, when it was time for serve desert, I was served vanilla cake, it looked nice but I wanted chocolate cake because it looked nicer, more indulging and delicious than the vanilla cake.
I could have asked them to change it but I said oh well! I will just have a taste of the chocolate cake since my friend Sarah had been served chocolate cake, when I tasted it I was really disappointed it didn’t taste as nice as it looked.
But the vanilla on my plate tasted awesome and to think I initially wanted the chocolate cake that got me thinking that sometimes life serves us vanilla cake but we want the chocolate cake we see on other people’s plate because it looks dark, rich, seductive and delicious. We do not bother to taste ours first, so we do not know that are lives are as good as those people we keep comparing ourselves too maybe even better.

I strongly believe God created everyone with a purpose, but like the story of the wicked servant who buried his talent because he believed he had been dealt the worst hand by his master why did he do this? He felt those who had two and five talents were automatically more prosperous than he was.
Most of us think this way, we think we have no talent and someone who can dance, sing and act has a better chance of being successful than we do, but it’s not true, there are individuals whose only gifting is being wonderful business men and women and that have managed to be more successful than most singers, actors, musicians etc in the world.
We need to create our own stories, just like the many great men and women we hear of and how do we do these, by pursuing our dreams on a daily basis, being persistent, patient and never giving up. Most importantly focus on you not others. People can serve as role models but you must decide to emulate their positive traits without trying to become exactly like them because you never know you might have a bigger assignment in this world than they do.
