Hi Once again and welcome back to Sonish Space.
Thursday was RU Ok day in Australia not sure if you observe this day in your country, but basically it’s a day set aside nationally to encourage and empower people to regularly and meaningfully ask if someone is OK in order to help those struggling with life by checking on one another making simple conversation as you never know what others maybe going through until you ask. We sometimes think we are being intrusive by asking if someone is ok or not but a simple hello can spark a conversation that will save someone’s life.
We women have the ability to bottle up so many issues I believe that’s how God created us (a blessing and a curse I must say) and always living things unresolved hoping and praying things will change, but they don’t always do. We dress like a billion dollars, makeup on fleek and smile like we’re living in heaven,but so unhappy inside that one more issue will break us.
This week alone in Queensland 3 women lost their lives due to domestic violence which is so sad, and makes me wonder if someone noticed the signs that they needed help or reach out for help themselves earlier that may have saved their lives. One of the Victim’s story says, she went to the police for help but they couldn’t help her which is still under investigation.
Let make it an obligation to be our sister’s keeper, if you notice someone is going through something show genuine and non-judgemental support. There is a saying back home, that a woman’s heart is deeper than the deepest ocean in the world so imagine the width and vast of how many things we can get stored in our hearts, those several terrible breakups, financial problems, loss of love ones, self-esteem, worry about our children’s future the list goes on.
One of my best preaching by TD Jakes called “God of my tight place” in the preaching he talks about how people are going through their own battles without you knowing it, he talks about how people can look and smile as normal but fighting a battle, so don’t ever forget to be kind to the people you meet every day. That cashier at the supermarket maybe serving you with smile but from a tight place, your GP maybe helping you get well and healthy from a tight place, your work colleague you seat next to and chat with everyday maybe in a tight place and most importantly our family and love ones maybe in a tight place we think we know them well and take it for granted not to ask them the simple question if they Ok?
I plead with you today reach out to 2 or more people a day to check if they are Ok. It may sound so simple but that may be the most valuable thing you do for someone.
So to all that is reading this RU ok? If you need to talk about anything am just an email away.
My Fashion corner:
So couple of days ago during my lunch break at work, I went into Forever 21 and bought these shorts for an unbelievable price so in my excitement I bought them in the two available colours, like they say if you like them get them in every colour. I know it’s not summer yet but I couldn’t wait to rock them I just love the distressed look and how you can dress them up and down (just thinking ahead of how I can wear it next). I decided to pair it with this top I got from missguided and grace it with my TB nude heels and the big curly hair just add volume to the outfit haha and I was ready to hit the city.
Enjoy your day…. And talk soon
