Positive Confessions are Powerful!!!

You have 500 MB left on your subscription! I looked at the message and found it difficult to believe. This was a 5. 5 MB subscription done on October 8th, and today is 24th. In my mind, ‘I have been careful with live streaming and turned off my data when it is not in use, so, how come?

Before I could figure it out, in less than 15 minutes, another message, ‘You have 100 MB left…’ At this point, I said to myself, ‘ let me quickly turn off my data, so I can send some urgent emails! Before I could tap on the data icon, I read, ‘You have 0 data left.. .click to start browsing at …kobo/ flexi…’ Hummmmm! What do I do now? As a Content/ digital Marketer, who deplores Social Media platforms as a means to an end, data life is real life for me, because without data, I can’t get much work done. I felt disappointed because buying another internet bundle was not part of my financial plans at the moment.

In the midst of it all, I reminded myself, ‘ I refuse to be offended’. I choose to make the best of my situation. More so, I declared loudly to myself, ‘this is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. I choose to rejoice. It is a function of my will. I will put my will where my happiness and ‘rejoicing’ is guaranteed! (All these are myself talk ooo. If you like, you can call it positive self-talk! LOL)

Speaking out my positive confessions helped me to see beyond the limitations in my situation. Next thing I did was open a folder of audio recordings that I needed to transcribe to produce authentic tweets to be scheduled. Next, I remembered the PDF books on my laptop that I needed to read to create content. Yes, I smiled and felt better! Today is not a day to gloom over poor or no internet.  Today is my DAY! And there are a lot of work to be done with or without the internet…and that was how I lived beyond my limitation and got back to work.

What is your peculiar situation today?
What is posing as a limitation?
Look at your situation again. This time, with fresh perspective, you would find creative ways to overcome it. Remember, the Day is a gift from God to you and the ‘Will’ is yours, please use both wisely.

My name is Precious, I was Bipolar and I live a Full life.

Scriptural Reference: Psalm 118:24 New King James Version (NKJV)
“ This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.”
Prayer: Lord, I thank you for the gift of today. Help me to rejoice and be glad in it regardless of any limiting situation I may encounter.



About the photo: I took this when it seemed as though the absence of data was the end of work! Nay! It isn’t. Much can be done.
One lesson about selfies? #Selfies are stress relievers if done in the middle of a limiting situation. LOL
