Tell Me Something...





With this weather, the economy, power situation, Buhari, Lagos traffic, fuel situation etc etc etc, there's a million things to rant about, but I'm sure in all, we have some things to be thankful for. 

I'd like each and everyone of you to share at least one thing that made you happy today. 


Today, I received good news. 

So in December 2015 someone gave me some job to do several things with a company they need in order to bid for a contract of several several millions. We needed these things to all be sorted out in a few weeks, end of January at the latest. Alas, this job has been fraught with one issue after the other which finally led to me taking the last flight into Abuja on Thursday two weeks back, as I had to go to the CAC Headquarters in Maitama and find out for myself what exactly is going on. A job that should have taken three weeks was taking over four months and my clients were getting very agitated and putting me under severe pressure. I nearly started having panic attacks as I feared that if they were unable to bid for the contract because of (me) it will all be on my head. That was a very scary thought. 

I went to Abuja and I saw things for myself, I did this and that and was told halfheartedly that things would be sorted. So I returned, yet nothing changed. Yesterday I even received another query and a lot of heat from my clients (the fault was actually from their quarters but I guess people pay for results, not accusations, so I had to deliver results!). I actually went to bed feeling very unhappy. 

I woke up this morning feeling a lot of weight on my shoulders. 

Well I stepped out of the bathroom and saw a message on my phone saying my file had gone through. 

Guys, it may not sound like a big deal but I've been waiting to hear these words since January 21st! At least now nobody will say "Miss Thelma we didn't get the contract because of you" *Whew!*. (And yes, I believe my clients are going to get that contract and that's another thing I'll testify about soon... Amen!)

Oh wow, that made me very happy. 


Unfortunately not much else happened that made me happy today *sobs* save for the fact that I woke up, I'm healthy and I have an awesome family!

Now it's your turn, tell me one thing that made you happy TODAY.
