What’s good y’all?
Oh…the traffic? Sigh…
Oh yeah, the scarcity too?…heavy sigh
Mehn… Tell you what? It stinks, doesn’t it? I mean we’re in a festive period and all that shouldn’t even be happening at all. Today’s Christmas and new year is barely a week away. We can’t even go out. Staying at home, there’s no light and the generator? No fuel!
You’re thinking this is probably gonna be the worst Christmas of the century. Well, so I thought too until last night. I was complaining bitterly to a friend on the state of Nigeria and she just laughed. I wanted to smack her right in the face ‘cos there’s nothing even funny about anything. After ranting for a while, she said…
“Will you take a chill pill? Calm your nerves Tomi. You complained of the scarcity, don’t you know its temporary, it’ll pass and everything will go back to normal. The traffic? Well New York has traffic too and its worse off and the state of the country? We are still one! Remember Syria? We are not broken and that will not happen anytime soon.
That got to me.
Case in point, whenever you feel like you’re in the worst of situations, always know that it could’ve been worse off and that should be more than enough reason to be thankful.
So be thankful for the fact that you’re even alive to witness these problems… Lol
Do have a wonderful Christmas…stay home and fun with family… Visit a friend. Turn up!
Don’t forget the reason for the season though…
May the joy of Christmas never leave us and may we see many more years of Christmas to come.
