DO IT IN FEAR, DO IT AFRAID.
This morning I woke up feeling unhappy, I tried to place where such was coming from and I couldn’t as I can’t remember the last time I felt unhappy.
I have made a resolution to always be happy and never let anything or anyone take my happiness from me, so, feeling unhappy this morning was a stab at my self, yet I didn’t know where it was coming from.
Opening my WhatsApp, I got a message from my boss, telling me to know the situation of things before stepping out, I murmured it’s well and gave myself a balanced position on my bed, trying to search around on what might be causing such unhappiness as I wasn’t feeling any kind of physical tiredness.
10:00 am, having done my morning chores, I decided to step outside, give going out a try, but I had to go back home as it doesn’t seem or look safe.
I thought of what to do, but I wasn’t getting the vibe, I asked myself why sadness would want to take the better part of me and my day, moreover I didn’t know where it’s coming from.
I got up, went into the room, I went to my book shelf and gave it a long stare, it was so long that I didn’t know when I started dropping tears from my eyes, I muttered a “Lord Help Me” I don’t know what’s happening and I don’t know where it’s coming from.
Not until when IDENTITY was launched, I find it very difficult reading people’s story, because I had this perception that we are only told what they choose to let out.
But now I have come to realise that people write their stories for others to get a better experience even without going through a particular phase.
After a long stare at my book shelf, I settled for the book IDENTITY, I gave myself a beautiful smile, because how I got this book was still a miracle, as I tried to avoid it but my heart and eyes couldn’t.
While this book was launched last year JULY 4 ( I keep records of good things) I didn’t have an access to it until October last year because I thought I was trying to avoid every bit of it, rather I was limiting myself from trying to get equipped with knowledge.
So it happened that someone made a review of this book sometime last year and that broke me, I need to get a glance of this book I said to myself.
On that faithful Saturday morning, while I was still in bed, I received an alert from my boss who’s the author of IDENTITY and also the CEO of Hadar Creations which happens to be a publishing company, and NO, she wasn’t paying salary as it wasn’t the end of the month then.
I quickly sent her a message on WhatsApp telling her that I would love to use the money to get the book IDENTITY, and I requested for her account number.
She laughed, she told me, to go have the book, I requested for her account number again, she laughed and said account number for what?
Well, I closed the chat and went about life, three days later, she sent me a message on Facebook and asked if I had gotten the book, I told her no, she said, contact Amarachi Peace Nwokenkwo and get a copy from her.
Well, I am sorry I digressed.
I settled for the book IDENTITY to have a third read of it, as no reading of it is its final reading, I immediately remembered a page that stole my attention the first time and the last time I read it.
It is page 57.
I went over to the page, read it aloud and I found strength coming into me.
I read it aloud again, by saying the first sentence in the page, which is “SO DO IT IN FEAR, DO IT AFRAID”
I heaved a sigh of relief and went over page 57 again.
IDENTITY is a master piece written by Oluwatosin Olajumoke Arodudu to help enlighten people into self discovery and purpose.
