Turning Your Mess Into Your Message
To be born in Maiduguri is not so much of a favorable experience, not to mention, being born into a family that cannot cater to your well-being. I lived in Maiduguri for the early part of my life and all I saw was abject poverty. I was in a big mess!
However, after living in the ‘why me’ mentality, I got to realize that my present reality can only be changed by my decisions. I put away all anger and bitterness, learned to forgive, renewed my mind, started to laugh, and now I have overcome.
Turning your mess to a message is a true-life story by Dr. Stephen Akintayo. He has, in this book, shown us that irrespective of the situation you may find yourself, you can turn that crisis around and inspire the world. Someday, everything will make perfect sense. So for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.
