Articles: The Awakening – Series 1(The Preliminary) by Godswill Okwori

Love: is an emotion of a strong affection, attraction and personal attachment to a thing or someone.

Passion: is an intense emotion, a compelling enthusiasm or desire for something.

Growth: is an increase in value, strength, number or size
Every living creature harbors love, passion and a desire to grow. As much as this is, people misappropriate love for passion and passion for love. It is also very possible to grow in passion and also grow in love; so, love bonds with growth, growth bonds with love, passion bonds with growth and, growth bonds with passion.

It is very impossible to want to grow in a thing you have no love and passion for, be it a relationship, academics, career or even nothing. Yes! You can’t grow in nothing without love and passion for it.

So, let’s take this short story:
Once lived Nene, a passionate young girl who had an unceasing love for animals, her ambition was to one day communicate her native language with the animals in her father’s field. She shared her ambition with her mother who laughed and told her how impossible it was to achieve that. With a deep love and passion for this ambition, young Nene developed the craft of using signs and speaking her native language at the same time to communicate with the animals.
She tried this craft for one month without succeeding so she started reading books in domestic farming and asking the herders in her father’s field questions about animals. Soon enough, she discovered animals only pay attention to you when they are convinced you love them. With that knowledge, Nene discovered a perfect craft in communicating her native language with all animals she met. She grew so much in that craft that she became famous as she traveled far and wide to teach farmers, herders and agriculturists about communicating with animals – The End.

The routinary force produced from love and passion births growth. Love, passion and growth are one breed; they are of one yoke but if misunderstood can be turned against each other and as a result, ruin your motive.
