Intelligence was a splash [on this very day] from all corners!
Speakers took turn to share their experience and challenges on the cost to becoming the lady they are today. It was a night not just for women as a number of men also came out to cheer their wives and/or sisters on!
At the end it brought to fore [again] the intricacies and importance of women to the home and society at large.
It was a night of all things beautiful. There was music, poetry, networking session and whole lot more.
The convener, Tomide Olukuade, promises to bring back this unique medium for women's expression very soon, and on a more consistent basis not just in Lagos but across different cities in the African continent.
Watch this space for details on the next SPILL event coming to you VERY SOON!
Please scroll all the way down to see video below for highlights of SPILL's inaugural event held at the City Mall Onikan Lagos.
Journeying to the city of greatness starts with a step. It starts with a decision, with a degree of vexation - vexation with a dowdy and lowly life that companions you only with scums and skunks. Interestingly, the need to make that journey becomes apparent at the point of tiredness but the journey itself starts from the platform of desire and eagerness.
You've got to be tired of the old, despicable, average unproductive life. You've got to be tired of the pass-me-down lifestyle that makes you a mere shadow of others. You've got to be tired of being tired. Somewhere deep within, you know that you're better than who you are right now. That feeble knowledge must gain strength and feed your hunger &desire.
There's a greatness within you that must catch up with the greatness ahead of you. Pay no attention to that voice that says to you, “nothing will change. You're always going to be like this". Get in the path. Keep taking those steps. Keep moving. Once you've chosen the path of greatness. The path chooses you back. The path disciplines you and your desires. It tests you and weighs you. It opens up to you, at first with the tentativeness of a child and afterwards with the gale of an October Rush on a Nigerian university campus. [I made you chuckle. Didn't I?] Sometimes the city appears farther than your steps can take you. Fear not. Every step that falls on the path draws the city nearer. And soon enough you make it to your goal.
Its not that you've not been great all along. You are greatness in search of manifestation. You are looking for the city of your greatness because that is where your greatness functions; where the greatness within embraces the one without. Undoubtedly,there is an environment in which your greatness flourishes. You must recognize it and take your journey towards it. What are you waiting for?
Get on with it.
And with God's help, you will succeed!
