Oh how time flies, just yesterday I enrolled for my masters, a day before that I was studying for my first degree, a day before the degree, I was in secondary school. The fresh memories of hanging out in diapers with my grandma a day before that makes everything look beautiful today.
From My heart…
Time ticks faster than we imagine, the thin line between birthdays and funeral is the unmerited favour of adding a new year. I thank God for the gift of life. He has continually opened my ears, mind and eyes through his daily unwavering support and guide.
Last year for me was so eventful, tough and my favourite in comparison to my previous years, and the most interesting lesson from it was learning to count every step as closeness to our dreams. Reason being that the years move quicker as we grow older, therefore make every step count.
2014 had lots of huddles, more ups and downs than I've had in my entire life, hey I know what you are thinking… let me stop you, I travelled my little heart out, I earned my master’s degree, I had fun doing lots of things but it was still tough. On the outside it was a good year, but on the inside I felt I was backward on any important milestone I've set out for myself. But what I picked up from that was that every step is a colour which should not be ignored as these colours matches into a rainbow in the end. The bad times may look dull, the good times will look shinny and bright. Some days in our lives wage internal war on us, but you have to hang in there, look forward and one day the dark cloud will be lifted.
Finally, someone asked me, what has been your greatest milestone? I was like huh? She was like, yea! Your greatest achievement in life? I laughed really hard and I felt oh no I can’t remember doing anything big in my life. To cut the long story short I responded “I can add all the little things I've done together to form a big square. Hahahahahah. That was me trying not to answer the question as I was perplexed. My worry about this got me to this conclusion- the bunch of small things we do is all that matters, affecting your sphere of environment is what counts. Most times we strive to be seen by the larger crowd and this puts us in difficult situations of placing life deadlines. Don’t be your own worst enemy, stop letting the preconceived milestones define your greatest accomplishment. Most importantly, set realistic goals and achieve them, learn to appreciate both the tough and good times, they make up your story in the end.
Happy birthday to me
Happy new year to you!
