Don't do more than you can carry

TO AVOID EMBARRASSMENT AND UNNECESSARY PRESSURE AFTER COVID-19

1. Put your kids in       schools you can afford      because expensive      schools don't       guarantee good      results. Just ensure      they attend a good      affordable school

2. Rent apartments you      can pay for     conveniently. Don’t live      in a house you struggle      to pay.

3. A man whose wife is      pregnant has good 9      months to prepare,      same as the pregnant      woman in question.      They should even plan      for the worse and only      seek help when they      can’t meet up.

4. Some problems in our      lives don’t just pop up,      if you don't own a      home, we knew we      would pay rents...So its      not an emergency.

5. Let’s plan our lives and      live within our means.      Save more and spend      less.

6. Some women buy food      for their children every      morning before going      to school or even for      the whole family, do      you know it’s cheaper      to cook at home?

7. Some people don’t      earn much, but have      DSTV at home, go for      GOTV and upgrade      when your income      upgrades. It’s still the      same CNN anyway!

8. Eat healthy meals and      protect your family      from mosquitoes to      avoid going to the      hospital where doctors will tell you that you have Corona virus.

9. Take advantage of      food and fruits in      season, its cheaper      and you can be      creative to create      amazing meals.

10.Don’t copy your       neighbor’s lifestyle,       she earns well and her       husband is a ‘big       man’*

11. Don’t follow trends,         wear clean well-        ironed clothes and         keep your hair neat.         You would still look         good.

12. Keep your circle         small, keep only         friends that have         senses and will not drive you to fuck up.

13. Above all things, have        the fear of God, have        integrity, don’t be lazy        and be prayerful.

14. Planning is the key, if         you fail to plan, you         plan to FAIL.

15. Don't do more than        your budget after the pandemic  there is no        award given to best        family that wore an        expensive cloth.

16.Don't be in       competition with       anyone...      The purpose of shoes       and clothes are to       make us smart and       look good.

God bless us all and provide all our needs as we journey to the top......

Such sound wisdom for living Thelma! It seems like simple common sense but sometimes it is not obvious especially when people feel like life is a competition as you say.
I hope indeed that Covid is teaching us to be content, to economise and to live within our means .
Thank you for sharing,

Nini
