A humble Woman Radiates Beauty

On the issues of adverts that come to my table, I am not supposed to be judgmental and so I tried to ignore Princess Adeyinka’s beautiful picture. I tried, honestly I did, but then the caption “Princes Adeyinka @ 60” caught my eyes. What! 60? Why is she looking 30, and still very charming and still very attractive?... I looked at her pictures again and again and, some kind of forces, on the inside of me, began to compel me to write something; something that people needed to see, learn and maybe emulate; but where will I begin?

And so I picked my Cell phone, and through Whatsapp, I sent a text message to the publisher. I said, “Sir, I need to write something befitting about Princess Adeyinka. Do you have any info about her that I can start with?” Few minutes later, probably after he must have searched for the best adjective with which to qualify her, he replied, “She is a loyal wife, a dutiful mother and a humble woman. She radiates beauty and very kind. Her Husband is a Pastor”

With what he said, I found myself in a deeper blue Sea and so I text him again, “Ok. How many kids? Does she have a nick name? What does she do for a living?” He replied, “I will send more later” He didn’t send me anything, maybe he forgot to and so the thought of her pure, young innocent looking face filled my mind throughout that afternoon, even to the point that there was no space in my heart to embark on something else. And so I packed up my Laptop, picked up a pencil and began….. ‘A humble Woman Radiates Beauty”

No doubt, I said to myself, the few words with which my publisher qualified her, fits the definition of a humble woman. I know my publisher very well. For such an overloaded qualification to have come from him means that Princess Adeyinka’s action speaks louder than words. She must have been a person who knew that humility is not stupidity. She probably must have known too that the only way to gain people’s trust and love is through mutual respect,

The fact that she is a princess and still maintained ‘the loving, loyal, dutiful mother, humble woman and very kind’ as my publisher described her, is an eloquent contemporary testimonies and legacies which she has bequeathed, showing again that examples are much better than precepts.

I am not asking all the women out there to be like her, but, at least, there is something to emulate. Could it be that your attitude is the thing holding you back from achieving your potential or meeting someone destined to help you or even the success you earnestly deserve?

Has it always been your decision to insist that things must be done your way, though you may be ignorant of the fact that you might be doing the wrong thing? This means that you are not humble enough. Do you always impose your decisions or stuffs on others, not minding whether they like it or not. This means that you are not humble enough. Is your heart always compelling you to do something that will benefit you alone? This means that you are not humble enough. Are you the type that has no second thought or have feeling of remorse? Whenever you needed something, you must get it or all hell will be let loose. This might mean that you are not humble enough. Are you the one that is always creating bad impression about others? Do you always trying to overshadow others? This means that you are not humble enough.

Are your kids are not proud of you? Are your friends proud of you? Is your spouse proud of you? Do people always find excuses to avoid you? Are you the ‘leave me alone!’ type of person? If you are, maybe you are not humble enough.

There is something more I think you should know. Has it always been your choice to see yourself as being too important in social gatherings? Has it always been you who condemns every other person’s contribution? Has it always been your decision to bark and nag at every slightest provocation? If you are, then ultimately you will be the one to have the headaches, sleepless nights, anxieties, frowning, constant sadness and most of all, you will be the one that will be aging rapidly.

Please, if you just realized that you have been dwelling on the wrong side of life; then, your decisions, your lifestyle, your habits and ultimately your attitude must change. Don’t get it twisted, like I said, humility is not stupidity.
