The year has finally begun; it’s gonna be a very tough year. It’s not the usual hardship occasioned by the bustling and hustling of the city but an unprecedented form of hardship that’ll affect every single aspect of our lives-career, family and eveñ personal relationships. Everything is gonna be more difficult, prices of fuel and other commodities will go up. It’ll be more difficult to secure jobs and contracts. Anger and depression will rise resulting to more rancour in families and more tension in different offices. The struggle to make it will rise resulting to increase in population in the city, increase in crime and infrastructural deficit.
Brace up and double your effort this year. Be more committed at work and at home. Be more frugal with your income and avoid spontaneous shopping. Strive to put your emotions under serious control. Smile at all times and be positive when facing challenges. There are only two types of challenges: the ones you can solve and the ones you cannot solve. May God grant you wisdom to identify the difference.
