How are you doing? I think we have taken some amazing steps to come this far together which means that we are so good to go for a good heart-to-heart talk. I’m writing to you though. 😂
I think I want to admit that life has been a bit rough on your baby girl for a couple of weeks now which brings me to share this with you. I think it’s something you’d love to read as always and most importantly, I desire that you come to a place of rest, grace, and content with yourself in your journey through life.
Some days in a couple of weeks, you can’t believe what I found myself doing. I got trapped in some anxiety about some aspects of my life which eventually had an effect on my moods. Guys, I was hitting myself so hard doing some comparison and blame game. I felt I wasn’t doing enough. I felt I shouldn’t be where I am at the moment, giving the pandemic a thought, I felt stuck, lol. Only if you knew how bad I wanted to just graduate. I am not the only Nigerian student now, we are all in this together😂😂😂………………… But thanks to God for helping me to overcome my dark days. The saying that comparison steals joy and pretty moment away is so damn right! I don’t ever want to be caught doing that again. I didn’t feel good at all.
When you feel like life is hard for whatever reason, give yourself grace. Don’t be so uptight with yourself by sending yourself to the grave. Giving yourself grace is about extending the kindness you freely give to others to yourself as well. Whatever grace looks like for you, please go ahead and do it. I learned to give grace to myself by reminding me of how great and excellent I am at what I do and how it’s just okay to be here in my journey now. I’m in my timezone and I’m grateful to God for that. Some that were born the same day as mine is no more (my twin brother is a perfect example. I miss him though😩😂)but here I am living, popping and writing!.
Hey listen, where you are at the moment is fine and your journey is not slow. Don’t worry your head too much and stop treating yourself poorly for how things turned out. Your shoes can’t fit perfectly well into someone else except it’s forced. Whatever is forced always leaves a scar behind. So dear, you are doing amazingly well in your journey. Everything is working out for your good.
Relax into grace and breathe a new fresh aura of peace and joy into your life. Everything about you is valid. Nothing is an accident. God is so intentional about you. You know what giving grace to yourself does to you? It opens up the door for you to truly grow and flourish and see yourself through the lens of God in a new light. Hear this, If you keep stressing and complaining over what you can’t control, you will lose your vigor and you obviously can’t bloom under pressure. It is better for you to take a step back from everything that drains strength and joy away from you and bask in grace than to stunt your growth.
I think the best way to give grace to yourself is keeping in mind all the doors of possibilities ahead of you and how unique, and awesome you really are. If you do not know you are awesome, let me be the first to break the good news; You are totally amazing!!! Friend, you are allowed to be kind, gentle, compassionate, and sweet to yourself. You are allowed to take a break from your hard work. Yes, you are allowed to rest. Working your fingers to the bone is great but so are breaks, rest, and grace. Don’t be caught being mean to yourself again, please.
Here is my last word to you, God gave us grace upon grace. Tell me, why you would not give yourself one? My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is more perfect in your weakness. When you are weak, God is strong to help you through it all.
Guys, It’s time you give yourself the grace and love you so freely shower on people around you. YOU DESERVE THE GRACE AND LOVE TOO.🎁🎁🎁
I give you big thumbs up for making it down to this line. I tried to keep it condensed for you. Anyways, I really do hope I was able to help encourage you in some way. Personally, I’m tired of letting the “mean girl” win because I deserve the best. I’ve given myself grace, you should too.

Yours in purpose,
