Sigh… I’m lying in bed contemplating the unnecessarily stressful weekend I just had. Long story short, I have been without electricity all weekend and It’s taught me a few lessons about this thing called life and adulting really. Check it out:
Lesson 1: Life stands still
We are too dependant on electricity. Suddenly, I didn’t know what to do with myself, my day became about getting my devices charged and every percentage drop was cause for panic! It was like I was missing out on something happening out there, mind you, every time I checked, I’d really missed nothing. Silly.
Lesson 2: You are your greatest resource
When life throws you lemons, it doesn’t give you a manual on what to do with them! If you wanna survive this adulting thing, you’ll need all the help you can get. Common sense is key, friends! You cannot wait for someone else to ensure your happiness and comfort, so the person you have to rely on most heavily is yourself!
Lesson 3: Candlelight is Romantic
So I collected all my candles; mostly gifts that are usually ornamental around the matchbox and I have myself quite a romantic setup! I believe this is what they call turning those lemons into lemonade😀
Lesson 4: Enjoy The silence
I have piles of unstarted and unfinished books. This is the perfect time to catch on some of them. Well, look at that! Some more lemonade!
And so I leave you with this thought going into the new week👇
