We all have wants and needs; many a times we often let our wants override our needs.
While chasing our wants we forget to look at the world around us. We want something so bad we pray about it; we look for it kwa udi na uvumba; we try and get in touch and find someone or whoever can help you get whatever it is you want. But have you ever stopped and looked around to find what else is available? you might actually find what you need and not what you thought you want.
Opening up your mind makes you see the world for what it is and not what it should be as you want it to be. Opening you up to new experiences; Experiences whether good or bad take them and learn from them; may be you might end up getting what you wanted but not just that something better.
