Hey guys hope you all are fine, at home, and staying safe?
So it’s no news that the whole world is on a stand still and there is panic almost everywhere and been depressed and scared is the most realistic thing to do.
So this is my advice to everyone in this trying period.
I know this shut down of school, work, business and staying at home thing must have obviously be hard on all of us but what if we start seeing things differently?
What if we start seeing an opportunity even in this chaos and difficulty?
For me I think what we do while on this staying at home, compulsory break or lock down period is very important as well and may have a great impact on us both Negatively and positively.
As family this might be an opportunity to rebound, get to spend time with each other and find out things about each other you never knew.
I don’t know what your faith is but what if this is an opportunity to find your lost track in faith, commune with your maker, listen and learn more about him? For me reading the Bible leaves me fearless, my creator says:
For I know the plans I have for you,Say’s the lord
They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and hopeJeremiah 29:11
Reading Psalm 91 at this time leaves me fearless.
What is your Book of Faith or creator telling you at this time? Do you even have faith in him?
For someone this could be an opportunity to take a break from whatever it is you have been up to lately and reflect on yourself, your life, your attitude and get to know yourself the more and probably start working on your personal development because you might discover there are things about yourself that might be slowing you down or things you need to get rid of.
This might just be the opportunity to read a book, or that book you have always wanted to read, watch the movies you always wanted to watch, learn a game(online of course), take an online course, learn a skill, upgrage your skill both soft or hard, by taking advantage of the opportunities on the Internet.
What if you start learning a new design for your product, skill or talent and initiate an obvious upgrade?
For the always busy partners this might be the opportunity to have some time with your partners.
For the students( WAEC, Undergraduate…), what if this is the Extra time you need to read up and make the best grades you have always imagined?
May be yours may be totally different but the bottom line is that you seize the opportunity even in this all seem bleak situation we might be into now.
while we talk about the lost of life or probable lost of life by this pandemic, we also forget to look at the other adverse effect this may have on our economy and other aspects, because sitting at home makes us majorly consumers and almost not producers.
But utilizing the opportunity at this time will makes us come out of this energized, refreshed and as Victors rather than as Casualties and as Victims.
My Question for us:
In this time what message are you spreading?
What if instead of spreading and speaking fear, we start speaking Faith, hope and opportunities?
What if we start thinking about how best this can be managed rather than “how we are all going to die”? A preacher once said “that our life move at the direction of your thought” so even at this time guard your thought and mind against what it is been fed with.
Come to think of it, what has spreading fear or panicking done to better our situations?
I know how important it is for us to be realistic at this time but I just think taking the safety precaution available to us and making best the situation is what is best as such a time like this…
Instead of spreading fear you can share this to help someone get enlightened.
