Many engaged in money rituals just to buy the 80’s edition of the Honda Prelude. You wouldn’t buy that car for 50k today. Some Other guy brutally murdered his brother just because he wanted to acquire the rev of the moment, Pathfinder SUV. That same vehicle is now better described as a coffin.
I remember as a kid, my whole street converged to watch a truck delivered a very large satellite dish
to my neighbor’s house. Today a dish one tenth that size is in almost every student hostel room. What about the Volkswagen Santana, Mercedes Benz V booth, 505 Evolution, Toyota Crown, all overtaken by latest models of Camry, Honda, Bugatti, Bentley, X6, Acura and Infinity ….Vanity. Some ladies left the love of their life because some rich guy had persuaded them with a Daewoo Racer, which turned out to be the only car they ever owned till 2day, while enduring the most terrible marriage in this life. They found out, but too late, that true love is invaluable; that intangible is to be cherished over tangibles.
A friend declared drinks because he launched the Nokia Communicator for over hundred grand 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 many people went extra miles
to buy for over 30k, today you will not buy it at N100 because all networks are begging people to even take it for free.
People are still making the most horrific sacrifices over ‘vanity’ and making enemies over worthless material things. What can I Say? Look back at that one thing you want to kill or die for today and see what becomes of it tomorrow. There is absolutely nothing you can’t achieve, all u need is a little time and patience and you would thank God without regrets… All is vanity!. Never forget that fact…. #WapX
