Crown me “Best in Multitasking” because I’m frying chicken, singing, dancing, and writing this. No, I’m not lying.
Merry Christmas, loves!! 🎉 It is with joy and gladness in my heart that I announce that today is my daddy’s birthday and I’m his favorite child so I’m receiving gifts 😌.
I didn’t think that I’d be happy today, considering the fact that I’m alone in Gombe and I miss my family. My friends traveled and I’ve just been chilling on my own. I’m even going to the radio station later today for a programme. Who works on Christmas day?
Chicken stew don ready.
Anyway, I woke up happy and so far, the highlight of my day is that my Muslim neighbour bought a lot of chicken for us to celebrate with. I got drinks so we’re just going to have a feast. I’m not expecting visitors and I don’t think he is either. We move! 😂
So, quick one yeah? This isn’t supposed to be a motivational speech. We’re just talking okay? Some of us have a lot of reasons to be angry, sad or frustrated this period and it’s easy to allow all the negativity consume you but the truth is, no matter how frustrated you are or how much you frown or complain, whatever issues you have will not magically disappear.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with optimism. Nobody is saying that you shouldn’t be realistic but what use is anger and complaints when it won’t change anything? You’re just wasting your time. Instead, lets take one day at a time. This is what I’ve slowly begun to learn and tbh, there’s a lot to be grateful for. Anytime I start thinking that I’m broke or stressed, I remember that there are hungry children on the street but I have a roof over my head, I have an education and I can give to people. That’s a lot to be grateful for.
I almost burned the rice.
So, in our festivities, let’s remember to be happy because problem no dey finish. Let’s also give back to people if we can. We’ll be fine eventually.
I’m almost done cooking. I still don’t get the concept of cooking for over 2 hours just to eat for 10-20 minutes. Come on! Anyway, it’s Christmas.
Merry Christmas, again. Don’t forget that Jesus is the reason for the season. I love you and there’s nothing you can do about it.
