I think 2020 still has more to offer…Kemi Adetiba
The Year 2020, the year of the covid-19 pandemic, one that has caused so many plans across several industries to either be canceled or greatly altered. Filmmaker and producer of the blockbuster movie, King of Boys, recently took to her social media platform to share some of her thoughts about the effect of this pandemic and what she hopes for in the remaining parts of this year 2020.
Sharing her post, she wrote;
“There is no pretending it is increasingly becoming harder and harder to remain positive in these peculiar times.
It is very natural to want to simply throw your hands in the air and give permission for the year to throw you anywhere and anyhow it wills.
I know it seems unfair to be forced in the position where you have to choose between Hunger or Health for both yourself and your family, but alas, here we are and there is no running from it 🤷🏽♀️ Blinking hard or “woe is me” laments will not make it disappear. But if this THING will not play fair, then neither will we.
The only thing sure about LIFE is CHANGE. And as long as you have breath… There is always HOPE!!! No one would have predicted an invisible virus would come shut down the entire world for half the year. This is what you call “humbling!!” But as long as the world is still spinning, we have an obligation to keep pushing. Don’t put the pressure of needing to get things back on the same, exact track they were before the pandemic. There is nothing wrong with changing tracks, Shifting strategies or Re-engineering goals. Cos even though it feels like your hands have been tied for half the year… The is still another BIG half to look ‘forward’ to. And SO MUCH can happen in half a year…The last few months have proven this.
When things open up, it will definitely be “survival of the fittest” and only the ones that spent THIS TIME warming up, prepping and evolving will gather the most nuts at the end.
Everyday, I fight those dooming thoughts and INSIST there is MORE to 2020 (for me) than simply “STAYING ALIVE” and this is why, I will be one of the scurrying squirrels with FAT cheeks at the end. Will you?
