So today it dawned on me just how badly the current state of the Nigerian economy is affecting everyone around me.
I had my own meltdown six weeks ago but God and the great people He has blessed me with, helped me snap out of it.
These really are tough times for everyone right now and to be frank I get it. The dollar keeps going up like an antique on auction, the fuel scarcity is rendering everyone immobile and the stifled cash flow is forcing people to strap up and count their pennies.
It’s downright depressing but here’s what I’ll say.
Take a deep breath, think about everything you do have and have achieved despite this harsh situation and smile.
Be happy and thankful that you are alive and healthy.
Don’t worry about the things you can’t change and appreciate the things you can. Focus on being the best you can be and share these moments with people that lift you up and encourage you.
Are you stuck at home with nothing to do? Find a new hobby, read a book, join fitfam and start working out. bottom line, be happy!
It may be hard but look at it this way, no matter how bad it gets, there’s always some one else that’s got it way worse than you do. Besides, sometimes it gets worse before it gets better but it will definitely get better. So, look forward to it, be hopeful and remember ( in Sia’s voice) you’re never fully dressed without a smile.
