Nollywood actress, Chika Ike who recently released her much talked about book “Boss Up” which got sold out within hours of release earlier today took to her social media handle to recount a stressful phase of her life during the period when she was studying for her Masters at Harvard University, writing a book and also filming her reality show. According to her, she barley gets up to 4 hrs sleep a day due to the many things that had to be done. Read what she posted below;
I came across this picture a friend took of me while I was busy reading at 3am some months back . It got me teary in a good way and I remembered a quote my mum used to say to me when I complained of work load and deadlines “ THIS TOO SHALL PASS” ( bless her soul) .
I was in a state of anxiety when this picture was taken . I had 39 case studies of at least 25 pages to read in a month , personal case studies research , books ,presentation in few weeks ,other Harvard group work ,writing my book and was filming African diva show at the same time . I was having barely 4hrs of sleep everyday because I had to meet deadlines . I had so much to do with little or no time ,there were times I doubted myself and almost gave up but I’m glad I didn’t. Now looking back ,having my certificate hanging on my wall ,my book published and putting final touches to the African diva show makes it all worth it . It’s not supposed to be easy but it will be worth it . I just knew the only way out was to BOSS UP! No matter what you’re going through, the hurt and pain ,the deadlines ,the grief ,the disappointments,the heartbreak, the depression or lack of money . THIS TOO SHALL PASS! There’s always light at the end of the tunnel.#tbt #bossup #nevergiveup #thistooshallpass
