It’s the good life…

I still look forward to that day.

That day that I will just lie in my warm bed the whole day.

Have breakfast in bed, Lunch in bed and just lie there. No stress. No worry about life.

I look forward to that day that all I will be doing is picking business calls from clients and telling them to work as per my schedule. If am not available, no meeting will take place.  I call this the good life. No meeting will take place because I will be the boss lady. I do the clients hold a meeting without the boss-lady been there? This is the life I fancy.

I want that life where I will hire a chauffeur anytime I want to.  Sorry, I mean full-time chauffeur. Of course, this days everyone is driving. For me, I will be driven. I will be giving orders to what I want.

I want the life where I can have anything I want at any one time.

Isn’t this the life that we all want? Let me speak for myself.  Yes, this is the life I want. I want this life so bad that I sometimes wonder whether what I am doing today will one day get me there. I want this life so bad that I would do just anything to get me there. By anything I do not mean getting a ‘sponsor’ as I hear they are called nowadays. This reminds me of one lady that I saw in town (Not mentioning where) go in a lounge and came out with an old guy enough to be her father. “Oh dear God, please help this generation” was all I could murmur to myself.

One question that bugs my mind is, how do they just do it? How is one so comfortable walking with ‘Le sponsor’ in the middle of town? How did they even meet in the first place? Is the situation always a win-win or is it win-lose? You know, all this questions! Who will ever give me answers?

I never want to reach such a position in life. I want to work and be the best I can be. I don’t want to be idle. My mama once told me that every minute counts and that I should take care of the minutes, hours will take care of themselves. No, am not a motivational speaker, just trying to put some one two quotes into your head for the day.

I wanna start now. I want to have a good life. Of course everyone wants a good life. A good life with no stress but full of love and full of life. I want to wake up one day and find my lovely husband already  up staring at me saying “Hey hun, here is your breakfast.” I will then smile and kiss him good morning. But see, is that ever going to happen? Haha, someone come slap me and tell me to get back to reality. I might just be having one of those Kithy dreams that never come to pass. They just remain dreams. Dreams that will never be. But seriously this is the good life. The good life that am talking about.

That life where I can go to a vacation with my loved ones and not worry about when to come back and go  to work. I want to live like a boss. I want to watch the sun set as I relax down the beach and sip a glass of wine.

I wanna look back ten years from now and tell my kids how I struggled to be where I am. What I got did not just come from thin air. I had to put up all my effort. I had to forego some things and some friends who brought negativity in my life. I like positive energy. The energy that keeps me going.

All I know is that I want the good life. Anyone who is reading this, remind me in ten years to come write about how the good life is taking me.
