A Lockdown Story
By: Light Jachike
My take on this lockdown might surprise many because I was super excited about it. Now don’t be too quick to throw a stone. Here’s what I mean, I was so excited to get a break like a real break. No work. No going to school. No demands of everyday movement, just me alone!
Phew! that’s heaven to me right there. Before all this, my routine happened to be: Go to work early in the morning, rush down to catch up with my classes that are always about to end when I get there, go to church or meetings in the evenings
get home, eat, do assignments, read and on and on …like this everyday.
Hopefully, you would understand why I was so excited to get a break!
I’m definitely sad about this virus incidence and the negative impacts it has on people. No source of livelihood anymore, and so much pressure with fear everywhere.
But this COVID-19 pandemic really gave me a platform to breathe. I mean, my relationship with God got so better. I’ve been able to plan and strategise on a lot of things. Like I’m finally going to start a business I’ve posted off for so long: ZOMA SUYA.
I can attend classes from the comfort of my home. Just go out to buy the necessary things and come back home.
For me, it’s the best break ever! And really a part of me wishes it won’t end. Lol! Not the COVID-19 of course.
I’m so convinced that these period is a gift to humanity. A time to reflect, build solid relationship with God and family, make positive changes going forward.
Truth is, after all these is over, which is not far from now, a lot of things will change. The world and its system won’t be the same ever. So how prepared are you to go back to the world?
