Today started off badly, I won’t even downplay it for you. Lots of yelling and insensitivity hurled at me and I was just tired. My entire work’s effectiveness was called to question and I felt defeated.
Kind onlookers slipped me an apology and tried to cheer me up; people were convinced I had gone to cry at a point; it was that bad.
But guess what? I was unfazed 😂
Because I’ve been called so many things under the sun in this my short lifespan, it’s gotten to that point where I just sigh and await it’s passage, which always eventually happens. Hours later I was working seamlessly and we even started having small talk.
Moral of the story: sometimes your rainy days prepare you to build your resilience and confidence in yourself. The Elizabeth Peters that came to Nigeria in 2012 would most definitely have broken into tears of despair in the height of the moment but of what use would crying have been? 2018 ETP took all the ruffles astride and came out unscathed.
Take the rain with the sunshine; a rainbow is on the horizon 🌈
Till next time,
Dr. ETP xo
