January ends today. Oh yes, it ends today.
Why did I choose to write about January?
I think it’s because it has been one long month. Or maybe it’s because it has 31 days.
Or perhaps because I am just excited that the next month is February.
You know how most people view February – Hmmn, need I say it here?
Ok. Yeah, Love comes to mind when you think about the month of February.
I am talking about Va-len-tine Day. Oh yes, now you know.
So get ready to spread love all around you in the next month starting tomorrow.
Anyway, back to this month of January. It ends today and thus, the year is no longer new.
I’m ready to say goodbye to January 2018, hence my thought for today is:
As simple as this word ‘Goodbye’ appears, it is deep with meanings. Well, to me anyway.
So, what does this tells me? Very simple – Nothing lasts forever. Days come and go. Months end. The year goes into the pages of History. People come and people go. Love becomes sour.
Still, it means more. Change is ever constant.
Change occur every time and should not be resisted. No. We can’t fight certain natural occurrences when they arrive. Do I have the power to keep January from exiting the scene? Absolutely not. So, I’ll have to accept it like that. And just continue to flip the pages as it comes.
And life ends.
Life may be here today but not guaranteed the hope of tomorrow.
Life shrinks. Life is transient. Life is ephemeral. Life is fleeting.
Such is life’s journey. Sometimes it is all well and good, other times it is painful and sad.
Life and death is a must for anything that has got a life. And we must say Goodbyes too and accept that as a part of our humanity.
Thus, as this wonderful month of January takes a bow, February beckons and look promising.
Oh yeah! I am always nostalgic when February is around the corner. It brings fond memories. Bittersweet that is. It’s always a month when the meaning of love takes a new dimension. Well, it’s another season when people go wild with their love fantasies. However, valentine day will still come and go just like the month of January 2018 that is fading into oblivion.
Therefore, Life is about entrances and exits. Life is recurring and seasonal. Nothing lasts forever.
I urge and encourage you to embrace life today. Be good. Impact positively on others. Be kind. Live for the moment.
I wish you profound joy and the grace to pursue your goals as the pages of the days flip open.
Peace and Love!
