Here’s a Nigerian woman’s story about patience that will put you at ease in 2018

Nigerian writer and social media manager, Eketi Edima Ette shared a story about the importance of timing and patience that has since gone viral. She started her story as follows:

“Are you one of those people who’s looked back on 2017 and convinced yourself that you haven’t achieved anything? Worried about catching up with your mates who seem to have done much better?

Let me tell you a story about #time.

She then shared an eloquent and hilarious story about a time when her younger self was tasked to prepare food for her parents. After a day of fun and play with her siblings doing everything but the task at hand, her parents walked in, when she was just barely starting with the food. Set on meeting expectations, she concocted a quick fix meal, which was an obvious fail and got her into a lot of trouble with her mother.

Ette’s story is incredibly relatable especially as we all navigate familial and social expectations, pressure, and time. Twitter has fallen both in love with the story and Ette’s storytelling which are a great insight as we usher in the New Year.
