WHAT IS YOUR LAGOS STORY III (THE BEAUTY OF DAWN & DUSK)
Benjamin Franklin was quoted to have said: “early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise”. . . . I bet the man doesn’t live in Lagos! What do we say of Sa’eedah who goes late to bed yet wakes up early? Forget it! We are all going to be rich and famous.
Happy New Year beautiful people, I can’t begin to tell you how dusty it is on here or how I totally got lost in managing my four jobs forgetting I have a blog too. That was why I had to give it an inviting new look at least. With this laden of thoughts on my mind, I did not know where/how to kick off this year so I thought to continue from where I stopped on my Lagos story series.
If you missed the previous episode of this series you can check HERE and THERE for us to be on the same track. Continuing this Lagos living series of mine is significant to the reason why I went MIA on here.
For an abled body working 9-5 or doing business in the city of Lagos, it is not an exaggeration to wish for the luxury of sleep. A long time ago, I sacrificed a large crunch of my sleep for survival in this big rich town. I cannot boast of 6 hours of sleep since I became domiciled. (You would find me online even at 2 am)
Those days when I used to work on the Mainland, (things have changed, I work on the Island now) I would wriggle my way through a hell of traffic back to my bed and the moment I close my eyes to sleep is usually just a minute before the new day then the hustle continues. . .
I left home for work on this day with a heightened level of hope and a basket full of believe that I am made for greatness. I could remember I witnessed the dazzling dark moment a little before dawn when the stars were just kissing the skies farewell. It gripped me in awe!
The day ended up well spent at work, I plugged my ears to Jay Z’s 4:44 album as I made for home. Heavens beckoned me to look up at the beauty. I saw a golden flame of fire painted on the sky, then I knew the stars were on their way to shine again.
That was a narrative of a day in my Lagos story. If you would like to feature in this blog series, you can send your Lagos story to me via mail. Please make it within a considerable and interesting length. I will email you a few more things required for the post.
