- A Lockdown Story
By: Obiechefu Chinonso
I am a student and I am passionate about writing.
COVID- 19 has been of both an advantage and a disadvantage to me. When it first started, I just thought of it as a period to catch up on some academic projects and to generally relax, as I had just concluded my Industrial training. I realised that most times we have great plans but what we lack most times is simply commensurate labour to see to the fulfillment of such plans. Amazingly, I began to relax more than I worked, and little by little it got to a point where I didn’t even work at all. Procrastination of a truth is a dream killer and it really affected my original plans for this period.
A day came when I asked some rhetorical questions and all of a sudden I was self motivated to start again. I have discovered that it is easy to motivate others even when you are lacking on the same subject you are motivating them on. But the real deal is self motivation. Without further ado, I began to invest my time in acquiring knowledge about things I knew existed prior to this period, but never really paid attention to.
So conclusively, even though I want all of these to end, in a way I have added to what I used to be. I think this period is not just a time to relax and have fun but a time to add something to ourselves whatever it may be…
Stay safe and invest on capacity development👌👌
A Note From Eden: Dear Nonso
In all calmness, you carry a intensity of strength, light and brilliance. Your words are navy without wisdom. The kind that leaves one in sober reflections for a brighter phase. Thanks for sharing your truth with us at Express-Shun. The world is dark enough. Continue to shine the light you are.
