2013 was not the best year for me. It was full of stress, tears, betrayal and heartache. It was an overwhelming year, I could actually describe it as the “highlight” of my life. But if we dwell and count all the wrong that has happened to us, we would find a bad year after year, after year. So instead let us be thankful for the year that was; the blessings that God has continued to shower upon us.
What am I thankful for?
I am thankful for the wonderful blessing of family. Through my ups and downs, success and failures, through whatever, they have never left my side. With them, I know where to run in times of trouble, I know where I stand, I know I am priority. We may not always agree on things but i know that their intentions are for the best.
I am thankful for amazing friends who has continued to look out for me, journey with me and support me on whatever I decide to do and respect the choices that I make.
I am thankful for the beautiful gift called life. My children has been my inspiration to move on and move forward. They have given me my life’s direction and they are what I continue to live for.
As we close another chapter of our lives and open a fresh and new one, know that it is inevitable that we face challenges as we go along. But believe that it will be okay. Remind yourself that it will all be okay, say it enough, say it so often that one day you’ll actually believe it.
Everything that we want to happen in our lives solely depends upon us. All things happen for a reason so hold on, have faith and never give up cause who’s to say that tomorrow won’t be the best day of your life?
From me to you, a blessed 2014. A new year, a new life, another chance to get it right! Let’s all embark on new adventures! Cheers!
