A Trip Down Memory Lane

Hello beautiful people, I am so happy to be participating once again in the Ladies of Hive contest. Before I continue, I would love to invite @merit.ahama and @glotokens to participate in this contest.

I would be answering just one question out of the two which says;

With Covid and lockdowns and workforce issues because of it, a lot of people have had more time on their hands than in the past. So in looking back over some of the things you've been doing, I aim to take us down memory lane.

Indeed it wasn't easy for anyone during the lockdown time most especially for us who worked for people to make a living. Not only were their strict restrictions but the sales of foodstuffs were too high that during that period many were starving.

For me, it was an entirely different story because I lost my job just two days after the Government announced there would be no movement. Although sitting down now to think back the memory lane, I would say I am so glad that the Covid and lockdown came because it helped shaped my life and gave me purpose.

I always felt that I could only work for someone to earn a living and never once that I could earn my own money without waiting for anyone.



Perhaps I would still be working for someone if the Covid and lockdown had not come and I wouldn't have seen that I could work for myself and earn better than working for someone.

I would still be going to work by 6 am and coming back by 6 pm, every day of the week without seeing that I needed time for myself or having time for myself because I was always occupied with work.

I wouldn't have thought of having a life outside work, I wouldn't have seen the need of being an independent lady without having to wait for a month-end allowance that can't even take care of me and my family through a week.

It's been one year and six months since I have been self-employed, take care of myself and my family, and having a life of my own, got all the time in my hands not just to only work to earn a living but to also fulfill my purpose in life and that's what I am grateful about the Covid and lockdown.

I look down the memory lane reminiscing about these things that I have the opportunity to do better because of the Covid and lockdown and I am happy about all.



Thank you all for always finding time to read through my content, my happiness has no bounds when I see your comment, reblogs, and upvote on my articles. I pray that God bless you all for real.

In everything, if you search well enough there is always a positive.

A story that shows us that everything has its positive side. I'm glad that in these circumstances you found a way to get ahead on your own.
Now that I think about it, I think that if this had not happened I would also be at my job with a salary that is not enough to support me and my family.
Thanks to this, I was able to start exploring other things and get ahead.
It's not all bad after all!

You can say that again. It allowed us to explore and find more about ourselves and what we can do that we never thought we could or possessed.

Thanks for your comment.

You received 5 LADY(LOH) tokens.
Please note that since our LOH token is still so new, that it will be worth more if we HOLD them for a bit before trying to sell them. Some have been trying to sell them immediately after receiving them, but holding them for a bit will help them to increase in value! We are working behind-the-scenes to try to keep the price stable, but the "sell orders" are hampering the stabilization of the price of this new token. Thank you! 🙂

You have discovered your new talents by happenstance.
and being your own Boss was your ticket to independence!
I love a happy ending from a bad circumstance.
Even being a Hive Blogger is seen as a Self Employed job.

Thanks @evegrace for sharing this memory. 🤗
