Nik Wallenda (Dare Devil) Completes Niagara Falls Tightrope Walk

Last night, June 15 2012, a man set the world record as the first person to who walk a wire (and successfully so) across Niagara Falls, from the U.S into Canada and the only question I had in my mind all through was what would possess a man to do such? But then, I got over myself and actually realized that this is not about what possessed him, but rather, this is about the limitations and ceilings that we set for ourselves.

I believe as humans, we are very much capable of a lot more than we can think or imagine. Do we really push ourselves enough or do we just settle for less or for average? I know personally, there are times in my life when I've settled for less while making excuses to convince myself that I was making the best decision. I believed I could not do better or that doing better would cost me a lot more than I was willing to give. But I was wrong and the approach is just a way of remaining stagnant.

Back To Nigeria...

Entering the new year 2012, I did not imagine or even consider paying Nigeria a visit but surprisingly, I did. Last month, May 2012, I packed my bags, jetted on Delta Airlines and off to Nigeria I went.

For those who do not know, I'm based in the United States but I was born and raised in Nigeria. I have a lot of Family and friends over there, and the thoughts of never going back, even if it's just to visit, has never crossed my mind.

I had missed my family and friends so much, I was starting to float (I mean, I was going through the motions, not really feeling anything) and the only place I knew I could feel refreshed was back home. So off I went. Well, it's over 5 weeks now and I'm back on my very comfortable bed in the United States and I can tell you that I had a fantastic time back home. Here are some pictures of me back in Nigeria. Enjoy!
