Hi guys, after the incident on the weekend, I was just not feeling myself or feeling safe in Accra. I was feeling weak, not in control, sad and annoyed with the project progression so I thought it would be a good idea to step away from it all. So I have come to Kumasi in the Ashanti region, where my family originate from to stay with my aunt and see my dad. Where I can totally relax and be pampered! 😊
I came on Tuesday, so have been here for 2 and a half days so far. When I arrived in Kumasi I took a taxi to my aunts and as I sat in the back of the taxi I held a pair of small sharp scissors in my hand just incase. I’m quite jumpy and keep locking doors and double checking they are locked. I’m not sure if this is good or bad, good because it’s security first and I’m always ready or bad because am I turning into a nervous wreck? I haven’t been out alone yet and honestly not sure how to continue my filming around Ghana as I am honestly petrified of bringing my camera or iPad out just incase it’s stolen. Kumasi light off is serious!!! It’s been off more than it’s been on so no street light or traffic lights after 6pm (when it gets dark) is no good for me right now.
I feel like being away is giving me head space to focus, think clearly about future plans, my next steps and the implications of them. My prayers and bible time has intensified as I ask God for the answers. Whether I will stick on this Ghana path or not…who knows but The Lord knows I’m trying to figure it out. I have been hearing of so much sad news from friends and family and putting things into perspective, what happened to me is tiny in comparison so I know me and know I have to put my big girl pants on and move on, just like I have done when I have faced hard times in the past. Why is this any different? Because I’m in Ghana?
I saw this on Keyshia Coles Instagram and it touched me like wow, it’s so true…
Emotionally I am feeling stronger, stopped crying and I can’t thank everyone enough for their well wishes, advice and encouragement across my social media. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. The general message being that I shouldn’t let a mindless thief stop me from perusing my mission and dreams!
Nuff love going out to all of you from the bottom of my heart.
I will have a decision by Sunday I’m sure.
