You moved back to Nigeria. What next?

You moved back to Nigeria. What next?

You can either sit back and expect that you will be treated differently, and everyone will want to work with you because “you just moved back”. You can also stew and complain each day about the lack of electricity, unending traffic, and how nothing is organised.

The alternative is that you get up and put in effort into making a difference. You probably will not change Nigeria overnight (I say “Probably” because I’ve found that nothing is impossible), and you will not find the comfort that you’re looking for immediately, but nothing good comes easy. You’ve heard that time over time, but do you understand it? Does it make you want to quit, or does it motivate you to keep going, knowing that you’re making progress, no matter how small? If it’s the former, you may want to consider returning back where you came from – it’s not such a bad thing, it just means you either don’t have the Strength needed. But… don’t blame it on “it’s not the right time”, or there’s not enough opportunity. There will never be a right time, and the opportunity won’t just show up at your front door.

You have to be resilient and want things so bad, that you’re not willing to just throw in the towel because you’re sitting in heavy traffic every day, and you’re tired of living in your parent’s house (after all, you had your own apartment abroad).

Listen…Make a Choice to return back, or Stay. If you choose the latter, you’re going to have to stick with it through thick and thin, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health. And together you will birth magic.

You don’t have to trust what I’m saying. Just trust yourself.
