The popular saying ” May Hay While The Sun Shines” may seem comon but it’s importance cannot be over emphasized.
It is important for one to remind one’s self of this popular saying as it spurs in us the desire to impact one’s generation positively, even as a Youth.
A lot of young adults keep making an error! What error? They think the popular saying “children are the leaders of tomorrow” still apply to them.
Thus, they feel, “I can still relax today and do whatever I like, because tomorrow after I have graduated from school, after I am married then I shall begin to rule”.
How wrong they are! And that’s why you see many young students who engage in clubbing and reckless partying, wasting their time on sex based relationships that leads nowhere, indulging in cultism and fraternities, smoking and sometimes commiting murder.
They feel “why should a young child like me worry myself with the issues of iife, let me enjoy myself, then tomorrow I shall do what is right and appropriate”.
The big question is When is Tomorrow? When is the right time to utilize one’s self to impact people’s lives positively? Is it now that you are still young? Why must it be now? Thats a food for thought!
The truth is, it is meant to be NOW, not tomorrow:. Children are the ones to be rulers of tomorrow but youths are meant to begin ruling Today.
You are not a child, you are a young adult. Young children are the ones who can still relax and fold their arms because their time is actually tomorrow. But yours is Now!
You still have a lot of instruments in your hands; if dream of becoming an entrepreneur, the best time to start a business is in your youthful state.
Many older people also have the desire to begin their business, but a youth can do it over and over again till he gets it right.
If you desire accumulating knowledge academically, the best time you can do that is your youthful stage.
It will be easier for a young lady to travel from Africa to America to get a certificate than a mother of four. Youths! If you have the opportunity to do something, do it before the opportunity fades out.
Take advantage of favorable circumstances!
Youths and students should do things accordingly and appropriately. If you have the opportunity of going to school, then do so squarely, if you work or do any other thing, then do it with a passion, don’t join bad gangs corrupt associations so as not to blame yourself in future.
