In the last post, I started out with five things to remember as you do a review of this year so do well to check it out if you haven’t, picking up from where I stopped…
6. It’s never too late to have a new dream- Of course a new year means a new age. There might be goals you’ll like to achieve but perhaps you feel time is no longer on your side as you’re getting older but truth is it’s never too late for a new dream, all you need is the desire and determination to get what you want and you’re good to go.
7. Good things take time – If there’s anything I’ve learnt this year it’s that timing is everything. While making plans and resolutions, we always want things to happen when we want them but one thing we forget is that the time might not necessarily be when we need them. Just as most cooked meals have more nutritional benefits than fast foods and junks, one has to be patient while striving to achieve important goals.
8. All butterflies will fly but at different times- I started the year with this quote and I couldn’t be more grateful for that. The adult butterfly lays her egg and maybe they all hatch at the same time, grow into larvas then the pupa before each emerges as a beautiful adult, the fact is no matter how long it may take, the pupa eventually grows into an adult and flies so don’t get discouraged by the things others did that you didn’t get to do yet.
9. You’re better than you were last year- Each trouble you faced this year, each unpleasant situation, each broken relationship simply helped build you and made you stronger. Each good fortune, each cause for celebration renewed your hope that things would definitely get better for you and I can only imagine you ending the year as a better person.
10. Have an attitude of gratitude- Saving the best for the last, it would be absolutely impossible to put to effect everything mentioned earlier without a grateful heart. Gratitude does more than showing you care,it makes you a better and happier person. Be grateful for the things you did, the people you met, the new relationships, the lessons learnt, the memories and fun times, for the fact that you’re still alive, be grateful for the whole of 2017 and even if things happened to be rough remember- what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
