#Inspiration: “Get up and go get your life back” – Linda Ikeji

Linda Ikeji, Nigeria/Africa’s leading celebrity blogger, provides inspiring words for those who may be going through difficult times, especially this holiday season. In a You Tube video published over the weekend, the media entrepreneur had these words of wisdom to share:

“Whatever it is that you are going through right now be it physically, emotionally, financially…whatever it is that is weighing you down, making you hate life, making you hate yourself. I want you to know more than anything else that you will overcome this.”

“You will be fine. I promise you. God never gives us more than we can handle. Sometimes he gives us so much pain just to test us. What I want to say his hang in there, be strong for you, be strong for your family, you’ll be fine.”

“I have been through it, so many people have been through it and they overcame and are smiling today.”

“I know that feeling more than anything else. When you don’t want to get up from your bed…everything seems ugly and gloomy, you don’t have that thirst for life. Everything seems dark, you can’t see the light, you can’t imagine being happy. Your heart is just so full. There’s just so much pain in your heart. You can’t even cry. I have been through it trust me I have and I overcame it…”

“Don’t let what you are going through kill you… don’t let it kill your spirit… don’t let it kill the essence of who you are…”

“Get up and go get your life back. You deserve to get your life back…you owe it yourself to be happy…get up. Go and live.”
