I am sitting here on my sofa, covered up with a blanket, in the deep freezing wintry weather of a December morning. And I am deep in thoughts of the things I should have done better in 2017.
I’ve been reflecting on this year and casting introspective glances at my life. So, finally, we’ve almost come to the close of the year, 2017 and there is little I can do at this time to change things. Whatever I have accomplished remains and those goals that couldn’t be birthed has to be moved to the to-do list for the coming year. Indeed, I can’t halt time neither can I stop the year from ebbing into history. Oh yes, 2017 must exit the stage and take up residence in history where it will be celebrated in the party of past memories.
Now, I have to think of how to start a smooth sail in the New Year, articulate my thoughts and make concerted efforts to execute my goals and turn them into tangible results. I am willing to task my brain and maximise my time and resources available to me to make 2018 far more profitable and fruitful. What this means is that I crave for a better year and must work harder and smarter to right the wrongs of 2017. A part of me is warming up to face the challenges and opportunities that will arise while the other part of me knows that with God on my side, this new future will be loaded with achievements and successes.
It’s almost time for the fireworks to begin lighting up the world in celebration. It’s almost time for the clinking of glasses to begin. It’s almost time to kickstart the exchanges of pleasantries and prayers for a new year. It’s almost time to say Goodbye to 2017 while we embrace and welcome 2018.
And as this fanfare begins, I’d start lighting up my path to enable my light shine and sparkle brightly in 2018.
Thank God we survived the odds and are here present to inhale a new dawn.
It’s almost time to wish you a truly HAPPY NEW YEAR!
