Commuting in Lagos is one of my greatest nightmares about living here. It is a survival of the fittest —literally. The rush into the bus will show you that if you couldn’t get the only one seat left amongst the 10 people clamoring for it, then you weren’t the fittest. And in the slim chance that you do get it, you’d be grinning from ear to ear in victory. But that’s not my story.
One morning, I was at the bus stop trying to get a bus to work, but all the buses going my way only had available seats at the back, and my preferred seating is usually the middle row or front seat(when I’m truly lucky). After turning down at least 3 buses,some of which insulted me for not choosing to take what was available, I began to wonder; is there really a perfect bus?
I just got notified that my last post was the 500th post on the blog. Been actively writing here for 6 years, and it’s all a proof of God’s faithfulness! Thanks for sharing in my journey. I’ve very much enjoyed blogging here.To celebrate, I’ve decided to share a personal piece on living in the now. Hope you find it helpful! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
I can’t believe it’s already been a year since I promised to write this post after Fanzaku had put it up on her blog. She’s a new and amazing blogger. She won my heart and I’m sure she’d win yours too. 😃
Today I’m writing this post pretty early. But guess what, I’m still stuck in traffic going to work. Haha. it’s been raining heavily and motorists have had to slow down. A forty-minute trip has stretched for three hours. Lots of cars have broken down due to the flood. Anyway, that’s basically the update from where I am. But let’s not dwell on that. Welcome to my tea party- there’s hot choco, coffee and tea. Just perfect for the rain! Feel free to catch up on yesterday’s post.
I’m writing this post amidst strangers on a bus while stuck in traffic and all I see are the brake lights of the cars in front of me. Sighs. It’s been a rainy day which consummated in the usual Lagos traffic. Today is a major one though. It turns out a trailer carrying tons of tinned tomato somersaulted. Slippery roads, I guess. It’s sad. If you’re reading this, just take a minute to thank God for life. Everything may not be right with the world, but you’re here and that’s worth thanking God for. Hope you had a good day. In case you missed yesterday’s post, here’s the link to catch up on.
I have been longing to write something for so long! It’s been an itch that wouldn’t leave me. Truth be told, I’ve indeed missed writing on my blog; I’ve missed the interactions and I’ve missed the knowledge gleaned from other blogs. But amidst all the truckload of academic work, it’s been hard to find a corner where I could get creative. With that said, how are you doing? (for real, you should answer that in the comment section because I really want to know). Continue reading “Journey to Fearlessness”→
