Linda Ikeji is undeniably the star blogger of the year and the previous years. She has been delivering to Nigerians and foreigners as well, hot and controversial topics. No matter how hard you try to ignore her, she'll always pop up. Some may say she is insensitive and unthoughtful but there's no doubt that she's a very smart and tactful content creator.
The celebrity blogger wrote the piece, 'Delay is not denial' to motivate her fans and encourage them to keep on striving to achieve the best, no matter how hard it is for them.
The first time I stepped foot outside of Nigeria was in November 2011. I was 31. Before then, I’d never entered an international flight. I never had the opportunity to travel abroad and definitely couldn’t afford a holiday. I always wondered what the outside world looked like.
Fast forward to 7 years later. Now I can travel to any part of the world I want…maybe even take 10 people with me and give them a luxury trip. And throw in shopping money inside sef…lol.
I have learned through my own journey that delay is not denial. Sometimes things will come when it will come. You can’t hurry it along no matter how much you work, plan or pray. What you need is patience and trust God’s perfect timing for what is meant for you.
God will come through for you as long as you keep the faith, refuse to give up and keep working. Sometimes the delay is God preparing you for greatness beyond what you ever envisioned. So don’t be down that you are not where you want to be now.
Your breakthrough is coming! It may be taking a long time, but God didn’t bring you this far to leave you and you didn’t bring yourself this far to give up. So increase your determination, increase your drive, do everything with all your might and be patient.
Your time is coming! Oh, it will come…and soon! The question is; are you ready?
