These 14 days: An Unexpected But Very Impactful Learning Curve.

HEY Tife , popularly known as Baby girl πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ how has 14 days been

TIFE: Thank you so much Tola!
The lockdown has been pretty interesting.
First, I was certain it was going to blow over in a few days. So I didn't pay it much mind. Then I heard the President's first announcement. Oh my God πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
But honestly, it has been pretty good. I've learnt and learnt and learnt. I've taken up spontaneous projects, improved my relationships, talked to God more, renewed my relationship with Coke 🀣🀣🀣and yes, I've been waking up by 9. Or later.

 TOLA Lol , I love the coke part  🀣🀣.so far what have you missed?πŸ˜ƒ

 TIFE : I've missed work! I've missed Lagos!
I've missed the early morning rush and late night traffic. I've missed my colleagues and my bosses. I've missed the ofada woman and ÌyΓ‘ Γ€mΓ lΓ . And the Hausa okada guys who think they are somehow immune to mortality but can be pretty fun to engage.

 TOLA : 🀣🀣 TIFE said “immune to mortality” and someday you will take me to that Γ¬yΓ  Γ€mΓ lΓ  joint . I love food adventures . It’s been more than 14 days now so what have you learnt so far ma’am ?

TIFE :  This period, I have learnt πŸ˜„
At the beginning, it was really easy to be sad and just complain endlessly about what was not working.
But I'm grateful for the help and comfort and strength that God gives.
Very quickly, He reminded me that He's Emmanuel, God with us. So whether I am at home or at work, God is still with me. He's not distant.
So we move!

Perhaps, one of the most vital things I have learnt is that there are different seasons in life. The right understanding of the various times and seasons in life is your ace. Your understanding would shape your perspective and that would ultimately shape your experience.

Again, it is really easy to see what is on the surface. But the surface view is almost never the whole thing.

Also, fear is a terrible thing πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. So guard your heart and protect your space. God has made readily available the spirit of power-strength. The spirit of love-you can reach out to others and extend the love of God to them. A sound mind-you can make wise decisions. Fear doesn't allow you do all that. It limits your seeing, makes you selfish and influences your decisions.

 TOLA :  Tife To finally wrap this wholesome , lively  conversation up , What is your own take on how we should spend the rest of the pandemic break ?

 TIFE : This is where I'm tempted to say Do it! You know, sign up for that course, watch that webinar, learn that skill, start that project.
While these things are important and time is truly expensive, I'll say to breathe! Really, breathe.
Be still and know that He is God.
Ask questions. From God, from your teachers, from Google, from yourself.
So you are properly positioned in this season.
For some of us, it is to learn. For some, it is to reconnect. For some, it is to start. Just be sure that whatever you're doing, it is for the right reasons. You're not setting up that class out of fear of financial bankruptcy. And you're not not setting up that class out of fear of failure.

Thank you so much , if there is anything you have exposed for what it is , it is fear . You have taught us to not let fear decide for us . That is a wonderful take home amongst other and thanks for making us have fun with your TRUTH .
