The “W” Series Part 4 – The Whiners

By Olushola Yewande

“Renew, release, let go. Yesterday is gone. There is nothing you can do to bring it back. You can’t “should have” done something. You can only do something. Renew yourself, release that attachment. Today is a new day – Steve Maraboli”.

I would really love to burn this quote in a disk and add sound effects, so it might just be a song to sing in the ears of the whiners. To tell them repeatedly, that they can’t have the past again, and they only have the present. The whiners team love to stay in the past, they blame the past for the present. “Oh Simbi, why is your hair looking rough?” “it’s my hairdresser, she made it 1 month ago and I still think she is not good at the job”.

“Oh Simbi, why haven’t you gotten a job?” “Oh, my boyfriend broke up with me, I’m not in a good state of mind.” “Simbi why are you not working towards your goals?  “I really don’t know; I think it’s because I lost my former paying job.” Just like Simbi, the whiners best excuse is the past. Why is their best ‘WH word’? Why me? Why did this happen? Instead of taking steps to move forward, they choose to reverse. Nobody has gotten it together, life is unfair to all on different levels, but you just must move on, that’s the best action you can take for yourself. Enough of the complaining, grumbling and dejection. Today is a gift, harness it. Own it.

You can’t change who you are yesterday, but you can determine who would you be tomorrow by working towards it. You are not your yesterday, let go of those weight, today is here and you are here and that’s powerful.
