Life is a phases, every phase has its own uniqueness and lesson attached.
I learnt a salient lesson during this past week based on my sudden hospitalization and on one other experience I had yesterday.
I was feeling drowsy after taking my drugs yesterday night. I quickly plugged in my phone and drifted off to sleep, this was around 8pm. I woke up by 2am and picked up my phone to find my way to the restroom . I was shocked to see my phone at 1% .
What could have happened?
I was certain we had power for over 4 hours because I remember waking up briefly around 11pm.
Was my phone charger faulty?
Did I have an app open which was eroding my battery life?
So many questions came to my mind. I had to wait till this morning to ask my mum.
The socket where I plugged in the phone was switched off during the whole period – IMAGINE.

I had an AHA moment at that point.
We can make so many plans and prepare so hard towards a vision but the ultimate approval Is from God.
Just like my phone plugged in, it was not charging because the socket was off.
My calendar was already planned out for a period of two weeks and one event I was already looking forward to was the invite I got from one of the biggest banks in Nigeria for a private unveiling of a product slated for tomorrow 28th. I had looked forward to networking with great people and learning new things during the event but then, the Almighty did not approve.
Should I be sad that my plans did not work as planned?
Yes, No, Maybe.
Will I carry on with my plans even though it is a bit late?
Is there a take away for me?
Yes- things don’t always work out as planned.[Tweet “Yes- things don’t always work out as planned.”]
NB: I am yet to post my podcast initially slated for last week. Once the issues are sorted out, be sure to be the first to listen.
