OLD AGE

Nature is not kind to men who did not cater for their old ages when they were young .

Build your own house where you will live in your old age .

Build businesses that will feed you in your old age .
Create conveniences that will engage you in your old age .
Build friendship and goodwill that will serve you in your old age .
Right now , start to be relevant in your mosque or Church and community so you could be reckoned with in your old age.

  • Old age could be very lonely and agonising for men who did not plan for it.
  • May you not become a liability on your children in your old age .
  • May your children not wish you an early death when they can’t manage you again in your old age .
    An old age without penny in your pocket is a slow, agonising death sentence !

Be warned now…!
There are three categories of people you cannot do without as we are growing older , your family , people in your place of worship and childhood friends , who include your Old School mates .

Friends , take it or leave it, at 60 and above , loneliness kills because the children you are working hard for now will go their ways to raise their own immediate families and pursue their own destinies , just as we did now . At that time it’s these people in these 3 – categories that take away loneliness and keep your company .

Pls, out of your busy schedule , set time out to say HI ! to your real – old – age – cure – against – loneliness . In the 3- categories , the only one that knows you better and can relate with you down to heart are your childhood friends .
So why are you feeling too big or inferior to come along ? It’s not possible we’ll all be at the same level . Some will be very rich , moderate and some poor – that is the beauty and misery of life. Some will be so educated , while some will still be Secondary school certificate holders .

If you are up , bring others that are willing up , and if you are down , never bring those that are up down with your mouth or attitude .
At close to 50 years and above , you have 10 to 15 years of active working life.

Stop saying I am this, I am that . Flow into other people’s lives and let then flow into yours .

Respect friendship and value relationship .

Let us pass this to all friends on our contacts , Rich or Poor .

You can’t exhibit pride . Live simple .🥣🍵
