As a kid, I was very intelligent. I succeeded at virtually everything; Academics, art, dancing, gymnastics, track and field, u name it!

Mathematics, quantitative reasoning, came easily.

But I never knew hw to deal with FAILURE. When I began experiencing it, it almost killed me.
When I started experiencing failure, It took a lot to overcome the psychological breakdown it came with.

It almost ruined me.

Back in University, when I got my first D in Mathematics, I lost it.
Later, I failed a course, I couldn't deal with it anymore.
I hated my course & stopped attending lectures.

At a point I dropped out, called my parents & told them I wasn't interested anymore.

That broke them!

After much convincing by my pastor, I decided to pick back up. Rewrote all my carry over courses and the least I scored was a B
That moment of restarting my mind taught me something about dealing with failure.

I'm still not great at dealing with failure but I'm waaaaaaay better.

Got out of school. Didn't even use my certificate anymore. I went online to study a new career path and that's what I do now.
I have excelled greatly at things. It always starts with a nervous or psychological breakdown but when I remember how I bounced back during my extra year at school, I get the courage to push harder!

I've come up with business ideas that didn't work, I have almost lost a job...
I have experienced a bad relationship, I have been broke, I have done music and was very very good at it but I didn't blow, I have failed at several areas but I didn't remain there.

Don't beat yourself too hard for failing. Failing is normal. Just don't stay a failure.
This is a message to those who feel they are not great or good at anything anymore but most especially, me. I know I will fail at something again but I will bounce back better.

Today is an awesome day for me..

It's funny how the things that happened will break some people but to me, this is an avenue for thanksgiving.

I'll share my story soon
Oya let me share d story on hw my day went. Quite painful or funny dependn on hw u see it.

I chose to see it as 1 of those challenging days.

So dis morning made it over 60 hours I haven't had sleep.

Been working on client orders as well as d launch of a new @Nzuriwears Tshirts
I got home by 3am and I had just two hours to sleep as I had an Interview scheduled for 9am on the mainland.

After I woke up, got prepared and was about to leave home, the heavy rain started. I knew I had to wait for it to subside before leaving so I chilled till it calmed down.
