I woke up this morning feeling pieced. I kept turning on my bed but it was clear that whatever was wrong was really wrong.I started thinking of what could be the possible reason for me to feel sliced and weak this morning. Yes I had a long day yesterday but that sorta long day isn’t enough to break me.I paused… I remembered the funny post I shared on Instagram last night about eating in the dream and I thought the witches and wizards have decided to teach me they are still in business.Again, I thought about the fact that it seems death is flying around lately, kai! I prayed sha…Then I stopped panicking. Worrying doesn’t help anything, it only closes your mind to all possible solutions.I looked at myself, then it came to me that cold must have eaten me up. Usually, I sleep naked (Kee ya sef if you think its wrong), so when the weather changes from really hot to when we don’t really send PHCN/DISCO for light at night, it hits me really hard.First, I dragged myself up, prepared hot beverage, prayed and consumed it. I felt 10% better but wasn’t enough to start my daily activities.Then I decided to take a warm bath. While I was preparing the bath, instinct told me to do the usual walk distance I do some evenings. I stopped what I was doing, kitted up and off I went. It was drizzling but I didn’t care. I knew I needed to heat up my body from within.When I got back into the house. I felt way better. I had the warm water bath and yes! I’m good to go.This got me thinking. If I had someone in the house to cry to or better put – if my mother was alive, I am very sure the first thing that will come to mind is to call out the poor woman to tell her how I cannot move my body then set her into panic mode.Or perhaps, If I was married, le husband for hear word today… LOLBut because the fact that I am all I’ve got has synced in, I was able to get myself together to think of the best way out.Sometimes we wonder how we will survive if a person or certain benefit is being cut from us, but the truth remains – life goes on. We will always get by!In any situation, no matter how big you think it is, all you need do is – pray, drag yourself up, think, follow your guts and walk out of the situation stronger.Issues will come up. Stumbling blocks will arise. All that matter is being strong for you. Worrying will never help you.When being strong is all you’ve got, you are really all you have got.
