I have close Fam who used to say business isn’t for me. Well I had no choice it was paying my bills and my son’s so I had to keep pushing.
Life brings us as many joyful moments as it does downfalls. I use every criticism to motivate myself. Let me not even get started about my NYSC struggles …..
Why am I saying all this? It really doesn’t come easy for those you think it comes easy for and life just comes at you super fasttttttttt.
I was gisting with my friend yesterday and I was like “it was actually fun going to the market those days o” and she’s like how is it fun going to the market?
I think of all of that now and mennnnnnnnnnn I just thank God for where I am today.. No mind me dear sometimes I am a STORY TELLER 😉.”
