The past few days got me so worried and stressed out. I have been working on a movie project and I see myself working far into the night. My husband had told me time without number to look for a team of creative minds that would help me achieve my purpose. According to his words, “You cannot do this alone. Your blog, your book, your movie project and the company. You have to get some help. I have already contacted someone to help get us a house help and a security man who will relieve you of house chores so you can have enough time for your work”
Before now, I have hated to my bone marrow, the idea of a house help due to the gory tells about them, both on social media and otherwise. There was this story of a house help who fed a child under her care, with the child’s stool.
There are more gruesome stories of house helps that can send one scared to fainting point. Though I have all my children out from the house to their various schools. You never can say what these maids could be up to. But as it is presently I had to cast aside my fears and doubt, trust in God and get a house help otherwise I might be unable to focus more on my work and secondly, am putting my health on the edge.
Talking about health, this is actually what has informed this write up you are reading at this moment.
For days now, I have been having this constant slight put sharp pain in my head. My heart region was not spared, as I continually feel cold and sharp pains around there. I could hardly concentrate on my work.
My husband had traveled to Abuja for his Indian visa, leaving me all alone in the house. I had to see my doctor, my BP was high. I was astonished with this result. How come a high BP. I hardly allow anything to border me. I have a sweet and loving husband? I don’t really understand. There might be a mistake somewhere
The following day, I went back to the hospital to check again, my BP was still high. I ask my doctor what I should do. He advised I reduce my intake of salt, red meat and eat plenty of vegetables. This I did and after a week, I went back for another checkup, same result.
Now I decided to try out a trick someone told me about the magical healing effect of laughter. I went to my studio, invited one of my customers who is a comedian and ask him to make me laugh while having some photo. Shoot.
I laughed and laughed with my whole heart. There were no pretenses about the laughter. It came out from the innermost part of me. For more than an hour, I laughed like never before. It sounds crazy right? But this is the “BIG SECRET” which helped me a great deal. After the photo. shoot, it was as if something was lifted out of me. I felt so light and happy. The following day I went back for a checkup again and wow! My BP has gone back to normal.
This is the BIG SECRET, the answer to longevity, laughter which goes with happiness.
