Staying anonymous even in real life

The only thing I did was to wake up and say these words, ' please Lord, let me find favor as I step into the street. And I did.

I had no idea, I was working in step with the plans of the universe. Since I turned a new age, I have had certain things happen even when I wasn't expecting them. I knew this number has always been my lucky number, and I was pleased to be living it too.

And that morning, after saying that prayer, I called my friend and asked her if she was at work. She said yes. I told her I was on my way to visit her. I haven't seen her in a while and I had always claimed I am busy so I couldn't visit her at work. My reasons...I was broke...lol. I had no money to spend, and I didn't want to bother her by making her pay my way. But on this day, I decided "to be broke" shouldn't come between us... haha

The moment I stepped foot in that shop, she said, 'thank goodness you are here, I have something for you.... A proposal'. I searched her eyes hoping to find out what it was she couldn't wait for me to have a seat before she breathes it down my neck.

When she saw I couldn't wait for her to let the cat out of the bag, she smiled and then broke the news. My crazy friend had found a new job with higher pay and she wanted me to fill in for her so she can go. Can you imagine that?

No, don't judge yet, she has always been the crazy girl, one minute she likes a job, the next minute she wants a new one. And every time her restlessness starts she drags me along on the job hunt. So, when she found the current one, I was pleased she finally did because that meant I would be free from gallivanting the entire Abuja looking for a job my friend accepts.

This is even one of the reasons I gave random excuses to not visit her so that restlessness won't start anytime soon. And, now, this.

She planned to take the new job, while I fill in for her till her timing is over. The plan is that I complete her one month here, collect her salary, and then decide if I want to stay.

In my heart, I was delighted. Not for the job, but for that space. I have always wanted a place I could sit out and work on my Hive account without it being my house. Not because I don't love my house, my bed, and my space, but because I am being too isolated from the world and it's not good for me.

I need to be around other people and learn about them, and their lifestyles. I didn't come from home to stay home again... I needed the experience and I made that leap.

Sincerely, I saw her office, I wish I was there and not her because I imagined the things I would do with the time she had. Of course, you know she wouldn't appreciate it and she didn't. While she kept complaining of boredom, I saw an opportunity for someone to learn and grow.

So, when she gave me that offer, I initially pretended as though I didn't want to take it. Yep, not to look desperate... Hahaha. She thought I wouldn't take it because she is aware I am the girl who didn't like the idea of looking for a job. She has tried severally to land me one. She makes sure she recommends and brags about the things I can do so I can be employed. I would promise to send in an application and never do.

So when I said yes after a while, she was glad. This morning, I was late. I knew she will be worried I bailed out on her like I always do when a job discussion comes up. But I wanted the space this job provided and I was willing to take it. The money, her boss will be paying isn't even enough for my transportation to that place.

First, I compared it to staying at a restaurant and having to order food to earn a seat, and the seat this job offered was better. Second, I get to learn other things in between while I work on my own business. Third, there's news going around that I am a 'yahoo girl', even when I have tried to live as frugal and stealthily as I can. I can't seem to believe this last part though.

So I have to use this job as my cover and protect my reputation. Gosh, this anonymous thing is getting into my skin. Damn, I am getting used to this life. But, mind you, I love it.

I love that I can live like every other person without being treated differently because of what I have or what I know. The last thing I want to sow is hatred, envy, and jealousy amongst my peer. I'll stay low, and out of prying eyes. Besides, I am a lady in a strange man's land, so I gotta watch my back.

If there's something I noticed about the universe, it's the fact that once you begin to think about something, for a while, and even though you forget about it, it becomes your reality. It's been happening to me. Every time I want something, and probably share with the universe why this thing would help me move forward, she makes it a reality.

This Job is the proof that backs up one of them. So, if there's anything you want, share it with the universe, then, wait, while waiting, work on yourself, when the universe is ready, she will hand it over to you. And you have to be ready to relish in it, and blossom.

Third, there's news going around that I am a 'yahoo girl', even when I have tried to live as frugal and stealthily as I can.

😂😂😂 Dfkm, I don't know why Nigerians have the mindset that if you're not going up and down working a 9-5, you're doing something illegal.

Everytime I tell my parents I'm getting some money from online they always tell me "don't do yahoo oo".

Once someone hears you're making money online it's either affiliate marketing or yahoo 😂. It's not even about the dressing anymore.

(ENG) Hello, it was very interesting your story that also leaves us with a message of the hidden secret power in the mind, as some would say, is that magical force that makes things come true after visualizing them for a while. I hope it only works for good things. Greetings

(ESP) Hola, fue muy interesante tu relato que además nos deja con un mensaje del oculto poder secreto en la mente, como dirían algunos, es esa fuerza mágica que hace que las cosas se vuelvan realidad después de visualizarlas por un tiempo. Espero que solo funcione para cosas buenas. Saludos

Greetings.....

Thanks for your thoughts.

About the last part. I had thought of including that after I had hit the publish button.... And I didn't want to edit my post.

It works for everything. The bad, good, and ugly. That's why we are adviced to watch our thoughts.

Even the scripture warns, "be careful how you think, your life is shaped by your thoughts".

As much as we are advised to watch our thoughts, it's even more important that we watch what we say. We shouldn't be thinking negatively, but it happens because that's how we are.

So if we think negatively, we must not speak negativity into existence. Once we do that, it goes downhill from there.

Thinking positively is definitely something we all need to do. It's easier for some of us than for others, but it's doable by all of us. Speaking positivity into existence is what we need to do more of, and this habit takes practice to develop and then to master.

You have quite an eccentric friend...haha

I don't know how the universe reads our minds, but you sure can wish and have it come true.

One just has to be careful what they wish for.

My friend is..... I can't even begin to describe that crazy girl 😂

Yes, the universe does all of that and more.

And we truly have to be careful what we wish for.

Thanks for coming around. 💜

It's not so much that the universe reads our minds so much as what we say that the universe hears from us. Once we speak, things are set in motion.
