A Lockdown Story
By: Odion Kadiri
When April reached midpoint, I was reaching a breaking point. I wanted, like everybody else, the virus to bade goodbye. I yearned for normalcy, holding hope by its waist.
Until I realized, it was never about when the lockdown will open up or when the virus will bow to eureka solutions. What really mattered was our ability to make the best use of each day.
Since the midpoint of April, with God’s help, I began to pay more attention to other important things, other than a vaccine. Core things like learning, loving and spiritual growth.
It’s never easy and it’s still uncertain, but I hope I will be proud I never went on lockdown in my heart and mind.
A Note From Eden: Dear Odion,
Your words are identical to the stars at night. They twinkle through the dark, always! You carry so much sunshine in you, and knowingly or unknowingly, you never fail to pour this glow into the lives of others.
In all, here’s my little note to you, today: SHINE THROUGH YOUR LIGHT. Soak yourself in the brightness you carry. Break the glass, inside out. Thanks for sharing your truth with us at Express-Shun. The world is dark enough. Continue to shine the light that you are.
