Is there a magical genie?

Spread the love

Have you seen Aladdin? or Sophia the First? There is a magical genie who does the bidding of its master. All you have to do is just ask the genie to do what you want it to do, and it does it for you.

It is just like having a magical wand, you wave it, wish for something, and what you want comes to pass, without you lifting a finger.

Lately, I wished for it. Don’t judge me, though right now, I am laughing at myself. Like, who says it exists? I mean the genie or magic wand?

I felt overwhelmed lately. I was struggling with a lot of stuffs that demanded my attention.

If you are in a Nigerian school, you would understand how stressful our school system can be. In summary, school was extra demanding, I had to struggle with creating content, and to also achieve the personal goals I set out for myself for the year. It can be really tiring trying to balance everything.

So, at a point, I called a very close friend of mine, and cried it out. I’m not much of a crier, but I noticed that crying it out helped me feel a whole lot better, especially when I followed the advice to pray about it.

I know crying might not be everyone’s strong fort. But, find out what works for you when you are stressed, and you cannot just help yourself.

It might be praying, crying, talking to someone about it, seeing a movie, reading a book, exercising, the list is endless.

After that phone call, I was reminded of everything I had always advised other people to do. But, I had forgotten to do. So, I will list some of them for you:

1 Pray and ask God to take control:

I have realized that nothing is too small for me to talk to God about. I was always concerned about telling Him the big stuffs. Now, I am okay with telling Him about the small things like: who annoys me, how overwhelmed I feel, how I don’t have anything figured out, how I just want to give up, and what I think is the solution.

Truth is, talking to Him helps me figure out stuffs that seemed daunting. Amazingly, He always steps in to answer, and make me feel a whole lot  better.

2 Prioritize:

You can not do everything at once. So, write them down, and prioritize them. Cut them into smaller chunks.
Ask yourself: What needs to be done now? What can wait? What can I do later? Which of them is pressing?

When you write them down, you will realize that it is not that much. Also, try to stick to the schedule for each work, so that you don’t fret about it.

3 Don’t be anxious:

I know it might seem difficult, or impossible. But, stop being anxious. Being anxious will not help you. It will only succeed in adding stress to you, which you honestly don’t need.

Trust God. Trust He has perfect plans concerning you. Trust that you will make it.

So, you can see that there is no genie who can grant all you wishes. You cannot wave a magic wand and everything falls into place.

Alternatively, you can talk to God, He is ready to help you. You can also be your magic wand who gets things done for yourself.

Does any of it makes sense to you? Let me know in the comments section.

Also share to the people you know will benefit from it.
