A Lockdown Story

By: Simon Catherine Nkechi

Life presents us with a kind of fun that is not funny or aims to evoke laughter.

In between all, we are expected to devise a means to laugh. The past few months have been on funny life event that is not funny, but ironically, laughter is, and would always be the only way one can make sense out of certain terrible situations.

I have been able to discover me better, and also understand that my Creator works in tremendously wonderful ways that cannot be comprehended. Hence, this has been my means and source of laughter this period.

A Note From Eden: Dear Ketch, 

Just the first sentence of your lockdown story made me fall in love with the entire piece from the brilliance of your  mind.  Laughter has always been the best medicine, and we cannot  but use it has a remedy for this choking times we are in.  We stay happy, because without this,  life is empty.  Meanwhile, crying and worrying  leaves us empty in duality. So choosing joy and guarding our peace have always been the best options.  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!!

Well, one thing I have always loved is the way Nigerians are good at tunning even the worst situations to find humor. Although this has its negative sides, because it makes us have many people who are not serious about anything in life. However, the good side is it makes us worry less and hold on strong till the siege it over. Kudos

True. Certain things are not worth bothering our heads over, because we’ll never understand no matter how much we try to. The best thing to do, becomes to take our minds away from it and maintain our joy.
