Early last year when Covid came in, I was really hit by so much fear, worries and uncertainty. I was totally incapacitated. I couldn’t do much or think well. This was because, I became so much worried and scared for my dad who has been chronically sick for a while. I thought I would loose him any time. I kept on praying and hoping and I really thank God he is still with us to date. I was also so worried about my community, who were so oblivious of the disease and with very limited resource they couldn’t do much to protect themselves.
I was so worried about the vulnerable girls that I love and work with, I felt bad that I couldn’t get enough resources to protect them, I wallowed and closed myself in my own dark self-pity room. Even though I reached out to more than 1000 girls mostly in terms of mentorship, sensitization and support with dignity kits I felt so much less. I wanted to watch out for and just know how my world pulse sisters were doing but I couldn’t write just a simple ‘hi’.
But today I really want to sincerely thank Jill, Jill Langhus is beautifully blessed with this spirit of always watching out for others with love and kindness. She would share existing resource opportunities on messenger and email always wanting to know how you are faring on. But one of the amazing things she did was inviting me to aspire reinvent conference! For the first time in my life I took part in an online conference for more than four hours of night without feeling slightest of boredom or tiredness. Interacting with many amazing leaders/speakers over that period really inspired me to overcome my uncertainties, worries and start an amazing journey of reinventing myself, career and purpose. I learnt that vulnerability is a blessing and a stepping stone to greater things ahead. For the past months I have been reinventing myself, it is a beautiful journey of self-awareness, patience and resilience.
I don’t know how Jill acquired tickets for so many of us, but I just want to send my sincere appreciation. You helped a number of us dear sister, keep going. Even though some of us sometimes take days to respond to your messages, or even saying thank you for sending resource opportunities, just know you are valued.
Happy New Year Sisters, I love and value you all. I am back to world pulse
