BRIEF HISTORY OF MY LIFE: “I MAY HAVE NO TELEVISIONS, BUT I WILL NEVER LACK VISIONS!” -The Inspirational Parrot



THE INSPIRATIONAL PARROT
THIS POST CONTAINS A BRIEF LIFE HISTORY OF MYSELF (THE INSPIRATIONAL PARROT); I AM THE CEO/FOUNDER OF TRENDSOFLEGENDS BLOG AND TRENDSOFLEGENDS TEAM. I AM HOPEFUL THAT THIS HISTORY OF MY LIFE IN BRIEF WILL INSPIRE, MOTIVATE, AND MAKE POSITIVE IMPACTS IN YOUR LIVES AS YOU READ… 

BEFORE YOU GO ON TO READ THIS BRIEF LIFE HISTORY OF MINE; IT IS SUBSTANTIAL TO REMIND YOU THAT THOUGH I MAY HAVE NO TELEVISIONS, BUT I WILL NEVER LACK POSITIVELY GOOD VISIONS IN MY LIFE.
THIS IS JUST A BRIEF HISTORY, I DIDN’T INCLUDE THE HISTORIES OF MY LIFE DURING MY CHILDHOOD. I STARTED FROM MY LATE SECONDARY SCHOOL DAYS.
WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, TOWARDS THE END OF MY SECONDARY SCHOOL LIFE, EVEN BEFORE I GOT ADMITTED INTO THE UNIVERSITY; I KNEW I HAVE THESE WONDERFUL POTENTIALS, BUT THEN I ALWAYS WISHED TO DIE AND GET MY SOUL OUT OF THIS COSMOS ALL BECAUSE I HAD NOT STARTED VISUALIZING MY DREAMS COMING TRUE. 
THEY (MY DREAMS) WERE IN ME, BUT I DIDN’T BELIEVE THEY WERE THERE, AND I WAS SOMEWHAT AN INTROVERT; MAYBE USING PHLEGMATIC WILL EXPLAIN IT BETTER. MANY PROPHECIES ABOUT MY POTENTIALS CAME FROM THE MOUTHS OF MANY MEN OF GOD. 
THEN I TOOK PROPHECIES TO BE MERE PLEASING WORDS TO SOOTHE THE MINDS OF THOSE CHRISTIANS PASSING THROUGH TRIBULATIONS: THAT WAS MY MENTALITY AND ASSUMPTION THEN, BECAUSE I HAD NOT REALLY EXPERIENCED THE EXISTENCE OF GOD, BECAUSE I HAD NOT FELT THE PRESENCE OF GOD THEN.
THOUGH I WAS GIVING UP, BUT I COULDN’T STOP STRIVING MY WAY TO THE TOP [THAT IS ONE OF THE MYSTERIOUS EVENTS IN MY LIFE, WHENEVER I TRY GIVING UP, I COULDN’T]. EVEN THOUGH I WAS OFTEN DISCOURAGED, YET I SAW MYSELF PROGRESSING IN LIFE.
IN MY MATERNAL HOME WHERE I WAS LIVING WITH MY GRANDMA; RIGHT THEN THERE WERE NO TELEVISIONS, BUT I HAVE MY VISIONS INTACT: MY MIND BECAME THE TELEVISION WHERE I TELEVISE LOTS OF THINGS/SCENARIOS [BOTH GOOD AND BAD].
WHETHER THERE IS ELECTRICITY OR NOT, MY MIND IS ON AND DISPLAYING THINGS/INSIGHTS/PLANS, INTER ALIA. I MANAGED TO BUY A WALKIE-TALKIE WHICH I USED TO LISTEN TO WONDERFULLY DIDACTIC AND INSPIRING PROGRAMS ON RADIO STATIONS. 
I ALSO BORROWED NOVELS FROM MY FRIENDS, I EVEN BOUGHT BOOKS FROM THE LITTLE MONEY I SAVED FROM MY POCKET MONEY. WHAT WE HAD THEN NEVER BOTHERED ME THAT MUCH [BUT IT DID BOTHER ME]. I ALWAYS THOUGHT OF THE DAYS WHEN EVERYTHING WOULD BE BETTER FOR ME AND MY FAMILY (TEARS ROLLING DOWN MY EYES).
THE COMPOUND OF MY MATERNAL HOME WAS FENCED WITH PALM FRONDS, AS BIG AS THE PLACE IS; AND TERMITES ALWAYS ATE UP THE FENCE TWICE OR THRICE IN A YEAR, LEAVING MY GRANDMA AND I WITH NO OTHER CHOICE THAN REBUILDING THE FENCE EACH TIME… JUST CUTTING THIS STORY SHORT. GOD, YOU KNOW WHO YOU REALLY CREATED ME TO BE; MAKE ME THAT GREAT PERSON AND I PROMISE TO MAKE OTHERS GREAT AND HAPPY IN LIFE.
MIND YOU, MY MOM DIED IN 2008 WHEN I WAS IN SS2; WHEN MY WAEC (SSCE) WAS ALREADY AT HAND. THE INCIDENT TOOK PLACE SOME MONTHS BEFORE THE DAY I WAS GIVEN THREE GREAT AWARDS FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE IN SENIOR SECONDARY LEVEL OF EDUCATION COURTESY OF ABAGANA COMMITTEE OF FRIENDS [ACF], LAGOS BRANCH [AND I SWORE TO DO SAME TO OTHER STUDENTS ONCE I HAVE THE RESOURCES, SUPPORTS, AND/OR SPONSORS]. 
TO BE SINCERE, I DIDN’T ENJOY THE DAY I GOT THOSE AWARDS BECAUSE MY DOTING MOM WAS NOT THERE [THOUGH MY DAD WAS THERE WITH ME], I KNEW BY THAT TIME HER CARCASS WOULD HAVE BEEN EATEN UP BY ANTS; BUT I STILL ACCEDED TO THE FACT THAT HER SPIRIT WAS REALLY THERE WITH ME, MAYBE HER SPIRIT WOULDN’T BE HAPPY ON THAT DAY BECAUSE I MYSELF WASN’T: THAT’S LIFE FOR YOU. 
ANOTHER TRAGEDY MATERIALIZED IN MY LIFE IN 2015; MY DAD (OZO-NWAYO ABAGANA) PASSED AWAY A DAY BEFORE THE COMMENCEMENT OF MY 2ND SEMESTER 200 LEVEL EXAMINATION IN NNAMDI AZIKIWE UNIVERSITY AWKA, UNIZIK, [WHAT A BAD NEWS!]. 
BUT DO YOU KNOW WHAT? I WROTE THE EXAM AS IF NOTHING HAPPENED, NOT BECAUSE I DIDN’T VALUE MY DAD; I VALUED MY DAD, I STILL DO AND WILL ALWAYS DO. I GOT NO SPECIAL PATRIMONY FROM HIM (MY DAD), BUT I THINK I INHERITED HIS WISDOM, MORE THAN HE HAD HIMSELF; SO I VALUED HIM. 
AS A LAD, HAVING LOST MY DAD GOT ME MAD AND I ALWAYS EXPERIENCE TEARS DRIPPING FROM MY EYES EACH TIME I REMEMBER ALL THE THINGS I NEEDED TO FIND OUT FROM HIM; [HOW I WISHED I DISCOVERED MY GIFTS IN THE EARLY STAGE OF MY SECONDARY EDUCATION]. 
HAVING ACCEPTED THE REALITY OF MY DAD’S DEATH, I MUSTERED UP AND WROTE THE EXAMINATION BECAUSE I VOWED NOT TO LOSE IN BOTH SIDES: FAILING MY EXAMS, AND HAVING LOST A GREAT ICON OF PEACE –CHIEF P.N. ASIEGBU [OZONWAYO ABAGANA], MY WONDERFUL FATHER. 
HE ALWAYS SAID TO ME “NWA MU [MY CHILD], I KNOW I DON’T HAVE THE MONEY AGAIN TO SEE YOU THROUGH UNIVERSITY…BUT I KNOW THAT GOD ALMIGHTY AND MY ANCESTORS WILL MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU…” JUST CUTTING THE STORY BRIEF.
I AM NOW ASKING MYSELF, WHERE AM I TODAY? IS THERE ANY FENCE MADE OF PALM FRONDS IN MY MATERNAL PLACE AGAIN? HOW MANY TELEVISIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE? 
I HARDLY WATCH TELEVISIONS AGAIN WHICH IS EVEN THERE RIGHT IN MY ROOM ON CAMPUS; I AM NOW ADDICTED TO LISTENING TO RADIO PROGRAMS. 
I KNOW MY FAMILY STILL HAS MORE DISTANCE TO COVER, AND I AM WORKING ASSIDUOUSLY TO MAKE SURE OUR DREAMS AND DESTINIES ARE FULFILLED. 
I WENT TO PRIMARY SCHOOL AND I WAS KNOWN SO WELL FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE [CENTRAL SCHOOL UKPO, DUNUKOFIA L.G.A. OF ANAMBRA STATE, NIGERIA], SAME WITH MY SECONDARY SCHOOL [NNAMDI AZIKIWE SECONDARY SCHOOL ABAGANA, NASSA]; AND I HAVE MADE UP MY MIND NEVER TO LEAVE THE UNIVERSITY [UNIZIK AWKA] WITHOUT BEEN KNOWN FOR SOMETHING GOOD, AND I THINK I AM ALREADY LIVING UP TO MY AIMS.
NOT THAT I AM LEAVING UP TO THE EXPECTATION; I HAVE GRADUATED FROM UNIZIK (APPLIED BIOCHEMISTRY: 2016/2017) AND I AM SURE THAT I DIDN’T LEAVE UNIZIK WITHOUT BEEN KNOWN FOR SOMETHING GREAT AND GOOD OR MY NAME BEEN HEARD.
NDJP, THE INSPIRATIONAL PARROT

THOUGH LOTS OF PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW OR MAY NOT RECOGNIZE THE INSPIRATIONAL PARROT PHYSICALLY, BUT LOTS OF PEOPLE HAVE FELT MY IMPACTS IN VARIOUS MANNERS. I SO MUCH THANK GOD WHO HAS BEING PUSHING ME UP AND FORWARD.
IT’S NOW I KNEW WHY I AM PART OF THE FAMILY I FOUND MYSELF IN, NOW I KNEW WHY I AM DESTINED TO BE AN INSPIRATIONAL WRITER AND A MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER: BECAUSE I HAVE LOTS OF STORIES TO WRITE AND TELL]. 
I NOW KNOW WHY I PASSED THROUGH EVERYTHING/CONDITIONS I HAD ENCOUNTERED IN LIFE; THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE TO GIVE CREDITS TO: I AM SO CONFUSED BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN FROM -MY SIBLINGS, RELATIVES, FRIENDS, TEACHERS, MY FOSTER MOM [MRS. EBERE EKWUNIFE AND HER FAMILY: I BELIEVE THAT MY BIOLOGICAL MOM [THOUGH SHE IS LATE] STILL LIVES IN HER (MY FOSTER MOM)]; MY MENTORS, LOTS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE CONTRIBUTED IN GOOD WAYS TO MAKING ME WHO I AM TODAY; HELPING ME GET TO WHERE I AM TODAY, AND HELPING TO KEEP ME GOING.
I AM NOT GIVING UP, I AM NOT GOING TO STOP, EVEN WHEN I HAVE GOTTEN TO THE TOP. EVERY STORY MAKING UP MY LIFE HISTORY IS A SCROLL OF INSPIRATION TO BE UNRAVELED; BOOK OF LESSONS TO BE READ OVER AND OVER AGAIN; OMNIBUS OF MOTIVATION TO PASS ON TO GENERATIONS TO COME. 
LET ME END IT HERE, THE PARROT OF INSPIRATION WON’T STOP SOON IF HE KEEPS ON WRITING; ONE DAY, YOU WILL GET A BOOK CONTAINING ALL THE STORIES MAKING UP MY LIFE HISTORIES. MAY GOD WHO HAS GIVEN ME THE HOLY SPIRIT AS MY MUSE KEEP ON GUIDING ME, AMEN.
KEEP DOING YOUR BEST; DON’T GIVE UP AMIDST ANY TEMPEST; KEEP YOUR MIND FREE FROM ANY DISCOURAGING PEST; SEE YOURSELF ATTAINING THE POINT THAT IS FARTHER THAN THE HIGHEST; BELIEVE IT THAT A DAY SHALL COME WHEN YOU SHALL BE DEEMED ONE OF THE GREATEST. 
DON’T GIVE UP! #TEAM_TRENDSOFLEGENDS DIDN’T BEGIN A DAY AND GET KNOWN THAT SAME DAY; IT HAS BEEN A GRADUAL PROCESS, GOD HAS BEING HELPING ME TO IDENTIFY WITH THOSE WHO HAVE SOMETHING THAT CAN HELP ME IN IMPROVING AND DEVELOPING MYSELF MORE AND MORE: MEETING GREAT PERSONALITIES WHOSE ACTIONS AND LIFE STORIES CHALLENGE ME TO MOVE ON.
TO ATTEST TO WHAT I AM SAYING ABOUT #TEAM_TRENDSOFLEGENDS, KINDLY GO TO GOOGLE AND SEARCH FOR “#TEAM_TRENDSOFLEGENDS” AND SEE THE RESULTS. 
LET THE GREAT AND BETTER CHANGES MADE BY OTHERS BE CHALLENGES TO YOU: BELIEVE IT THAT YOU CAN MAKE SUCH CHANGES, EVEN MORE THAN THEY DO/DID. 
YOU BECOME BETTER AND GREATER THAN OTHERS NOT BY MERE SAYINGS, YOU HAVE TO WORK HARDER AND BETTER THAN THEM. YOU CAN’T MAKE RICHES SIMPLY THROUGH MERE WISHES: APT ACTIONS ARE PARAMOUNT.
I AM ENDING THIS PIECE WITH TEARS OF JOY DROPPING FROM MY EYES; STILL WISHING MY BIOLOGICAL PARENTS ARE STILL ALIVE TODAY. GOD KNOWS THE BEST.
SPECIAL THANKS TO MY GRAND MOTHERS, MRS. UGOYE ANIEBONAM; SHE WAS THE ONE WITH WHOM I GREW UP WITH. SHE DID ALL HER BEST TO MAKING ME A BETTER PERSON IN LIFE. UNDER RAIN AND SUN, SHE WAS TOILING TO SEE THAT I AM FINE. 
SWEET GRANDMA, I PRAY GOD TO KEEP YOU ALIVE AND HEALTHY BECAUSE I REALLY NEED YOU TO ENJOY MY WEALTH SOON. NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO YOU; NO MATTER WHEREVER I MAY BE IN LIFE, I WON’T GET YOU OFF MY MEMORY.
