A Lockdown Story
By: Vivian Okafor
It’s been crazy so far, like each day feels like the same day all over again. Waking up. Eating. Sleeping.
Although I tried to practice more on my makeup and online classes on content creation, the electricity here was epileptic all the way.
On trying to push through, regardless, I rested well and tried to think and make positive decisions in my life.
Also, family bonding made the whole situation unique even without electricity.
The pandemic has not been easy and my heart goes out to all the victims and their families.
I even lost someone who was waiting for the lockdown to be over in order to have a heart surgery abroad. However, within the two weeks lockdown, she died at the age of 24. Someone with a very bright life already!
In all, I believe this phase will pass away and life will be better again❤️
A Note From Eden: Dear Vivian,
In the way your heart is beautifully structured. In the way you reflect love, courage, brilliance and strength, even on days you barely realize this. In all these and more.- You. Are. Everything. Beautiful. On beauty. You are the art. You are the artist. And you do not just colour faces (as a makeup artist), but you also shine the brightness of your heart into the dark phases of those around. You are an essence of life. Please know this, and continue to work/walk in the consciousness of these words. Thanks for sharing your truth with us at Express-Shun. The world is dark enough. Continue to shine the light that you are.
