Kenya is two hours ahead of Nigeria, but it does not mean that Nigeria is slow, and it does not mean that Kenya is faster than Nigeria. Both countries are working based on their own "Time Zone."

Some one is still single..Someone got married and 'waited' ten years before having a child, there is another who had had a baby within one year after marriage.

Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a job; and there is another who graduated at the age of 27 and secured employment just after national service.

Joyce Meyer started her own ministry at age 41 and still alive today at 71 years old. 

Someone became CEO at the age of 25 and died at the age of 50 while another became a CEO at the age of 50 and lived to 90 years. 

Everyone worked based on their 'Time Zone'.. 
Some people have everything that work fast for them. Work in your “time zone”.

Colleagues, friends, associates, younger one(s) might "seem" to go ahead of you. Don't envy them, it's their 'Time Zone.'. Yours is coming soon. Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good. You’re not late… you’re on time!..its ur time zone...

A teacher asked her students to bring some tomatoes in a plastic bag to school. 

Each tomato was to be given the name of a person whom that child hates. 

So, the number of tomatoes would be equal to the number of persons they hate. 

On a pre-determined day,  All the children brought their tomatoes well addressed. 
Some had two, some had three and some had five, some even had 20 tomatoes in accordance with the number of people they hated. 

The teacher then told them they had to carry the tomatoes with them everywhere they go for two weeks. 

As the days passed the children started to complain about the decay and smell of the tomatoes. The students who had many tomatoes complained it was very heavy to carry and the smell was too much.

After a week, the teacher asked the students “How did you feel this week?” 

The children complained of the awful smell and heavy weight of the tomatoes, especially those who carried several tomatoes. 

The teacher said, “This is very similar to what you carry in your heart when you don’t like some people. 
Hatred makes the heart unhealthy and you carry that hatred everywhere. If you can’t bear the smell of spoilt tomatoes for a week, imagine the impact of bitterness on your heart as you carry it daily.” 

The heart is a beautiful garden that needs regular cleaning of unwanted weeds.

Forgive those who have angered you. This makes room for storing good things.
Get Better, Not Bitter!

The Balance

There was a poor farmer who lived in a village. He used to earn livelihood his family by milking a cow and churning it into butter.
One day, after his wife prepared the butter, he goes to sell it in city.

Each knob of butter weighing 1 kg. 

The farmer used to barter it for sugar, rice , soap and oil with the same shopkeeper for several months.

However this time, after the farmer went, the greedy shopkeeper thought of a idea to extort more money from his customers by selling lesser quantity of butter for the same price.To make the size change not very apparent, he decides to break the knobs into 900 gms but to his dismay, each knob measured exactly 900 gm. Shopkeeper was hurt and felt cheated.

The next week, the farmer again comes to his shop . The shopkeeper starts hurling abuses at him. He accuses him of deceiving his trust as he had claimed each chunk to be 1 kg. 

The troubled farmer humbly spoke "My brother, being poor I do not have sufficient money to purchase weights. Whatever sugar I take from you, I place it on the other plate of taraazu and match it to the same"

Whatever we give to others, will come back to us!
