I see it has a reset. A lot of things hs happened. Evil is being revealed, relationships are being tested 😂 institutions are being tested, business also tested, and the economy.

Basically this lockdown has somehow defied the system we’ll always been working and believe on.
Basically what I’ve learnt is that life and freedom is not guaranteed, live the best out of it

The lockdown taught me three cardinal things:

1. To value the blessing of physical interaction, especially with friends and family.

2. To stay nimble in the face of an ever-dynamic world.

3. To understand that massive opportunities for quantum leaps are seeded in major challenges.

Well, with the Lockdown and the government implementing online learning, it was paramount that we did something unique.

The Makoko people that I take care of, can’t afford to learn due to unavailability of Data or devices.

Reinventing ourselves meant we had to see how to make the children not lag behind.

With the available IPads, we have been able to bridge that gap

It really taught me to live better with people. The measurement of love is not based on your ability to provide for there every material need.

It’s based on how much quality time you are willing to spend with them without feeling irritated. It taught me to reevaluate my priorities and there is more to life than just accumulating wealth a d material things.

The virus really humbled the human race. Science failed us, technology failed us, even economic theories failed. But the only thing left standing was the word of God.

This isolation is teaching me to improve on some skills that I have always wanted to learn, it has also given me the time to do some introspection.

The lockdown came with mixed emotions for me. Staying home didn’t bother me at all (I’m a stay at home baby), but having to follow a death toll and infection toll was straining. Fear for the future, anxiety that I and people I know might join the statistics were emotions I majorly battled with.

And yes, many times I had difficulty breathing. Not because I had the virus, I just felt suffocated from all the bad news.

The lockdown has been pretty interesting for me. I’ve enjoyed working from home, interacting with family and trying my hand on a few recipes. It’s taught me to be grateful for the times we could go out and smell the roses without a face mask.

I treat every experience in life as a lesson, including the lockdown ushered in by the pandemic.

Here’s what I learnt:
1. If you see a pin, pick it, don’t let it lie on the floor.

2. Be human! Because you are first human before you become any other thing.

3. If you don’t take care of your environment, it could kill you

4. The universe will give back to you what you gave it.

This lockdown for me has been a blessing

It has helped me to fully understand the best Gift I have got, develop a new skill, put to hold what I have always believed and embraced the real me that is giving me Joy.

It has helped me enjoy the fact that I really don’t have to be in Church as it were to enjoy the love of Christ nor to fellowship with God as I developed a stronger relationship during this period

It has also helped me Go back to my drawing board and reorganize my self, preparing strongly for a fulfilled life after the LOCKDOWN

I have taken some bold steps this season, made some mistakes and by God’s grace made progress

Definitely life after the lockdown can only bring more blessings

And finally, the lockdown has helped me appreciate and love humanity the more, seeing everyone as equal in love.

So spiritually, I have been more intentional with my fellowship with God

Mentally I have been more aware of things I can do within my capacity especially as regards my strength and weaknesses.

Intellectually I have been more equipped through books and movies.
