I Recall a man in my hood who became popular 4 engaging in money rituals just to buy the 80's edition of the Honda Prelude. You wouldn't buy that car for 50k 2day.
Some other guy brutally murdered his brother (whom their father gave cash to travel for the purpose of re- stocking their warehouse), just 'cos he wanted 2 acquire the rave of the moment - Pathfinder Jeep. That same vehicle is now better described as a coffin.
I Remember my whole street gathered to watch a truck deliver a very large satellite dish to my neighbour's house. Today a dish one tenth that size delivers 50 times the value and is in almost every student's room.
What about the Volkswagen Santana, Mercedes Benz V boot, 505 Evolution, Toyota Crown, all overtaken by latest models of Camry, Honda, Bugatti, Bentley, X6, Acura and Infinity#to mention a few.... Vanity!
A lady left her true love because some rich guy then persuaded her with a golf 1, which turned out 2 be the only car they ever owned till date. She found out too late that true love is invaluable.
A friend declared drinks because he launched the Nokia Communicator for over 100K in 2002. Today that phone would embarrass the owner and is a joke compared to the low cost and everyday phone.
What about the MTN sim card that many people went extra miles before they bought for over 30k, today you will not buy it at N100 because all networks are begging people to even take it for free.
Just Recently BBM, that Lots of Girls had to do some unspeakable things for, just because they want to PING, is now even in common Techno phones.
People are still making the most horrific sacrifices over 'vanity' and make enemies over worthless material things.
What can I Say? Look back @ that one thing you wanted to kill or die 4 years back and see what has become of it today. There is absolutely nothing you can't achieve, all u need is, to be on ur grand, a little time and PATIENCE and you would thank God without regrets...
Be Wise! Life itself is Vanity and nothing stays on top of the game forever. BE THANKFUL.
