A Lockdown Story
By: Fawale Oyewole Timi

At first, the lockdown put a stop to many plans. I had so many things marked out to be done each month. I also had various strategies on how each goal was to be achieved, but from not even the slightest notice, everything was put on a hold.
Although the lockdown stormed and we moved along with the tides, it helped me develop on my skills, it got me thinking, it gave me time to develop on new relationships and it blessed me with little rest which was really needed.

I also realized that we can actually do without some things we thought we couldn’t do away with.

A Note From Eden: Dear Timi,

There is so much wittiness within each line in your lockdown story. The brevity notwithstanding. Each line carries a light that would make the reader take a pause to think/rethink. Your story serves as a map that would help one navigate through this trying times. Thanks for sharing your truth with us at Express-Shun. The world is dark enough. Continue to shine the light that you are.


Much love!!

Both for individuals and organizations, the lockdown affected our lives in so many ways. But gradually things are falling in place for those with the right mentality towards anything. Thanks for sharing.

To me, ‘rest’ Was The best gift of this season. I really needed it. Things will be fine soon. This, I know.

So much to take from our individual lockdown experience. If only we look deeper, and no doubt, this, you have done. Blessings
