2018 was a great year for me. My growth game was nothing like I’ve ever experienced and I’m sure I’ll only be reiterating what you might have read already from the previous blog posts, so, I’m not going to bore you with the same stories. But, I must appreciate y’all. Thanks to everyone for the love and support. One phrase I’ve been meditating on for the past few weeks are, “These things are even shadow of things to come”. If 2018 was great, 2019 promises to be greater. . .
So, on today’s year-end wrap up, I’m just going to say few things. Firstly, I’m not big on new year resolutions, where you make a long list of do(s) and don’t(s) for the new year. Don’t get me wrong, it works for some people and I’m definitely a fan of penning thoughts down and setting goals. But, I love to be logical and practical about things. I gave up on resolutions 3 years ago and started only setting few achievable goals that align with my purpose because I realized along the line, visions get adjusted, I evolve, I meet new people, get new ideas, go to new places . . . And if all I want is being dogged to my resolutions (which I’ll most likely have forgotten or stray from by the end of January), there won’t be much to account for at the end of the year.
In conclusion, do what works for you. Do you for you. Either long resolutions or short goals – have a plan because time flies.
Secondly, as kids, it took a while before some of us realized all we needed to do was cross our errors written with pen. I remember trying to erase mine with chalk and at some point used saliva/water which soils the book and leaves holes and my mum will reprimand me for being rough and dirty, but, all I wanted was to ensure my teacher doesn’t see my mistakes. My mum will tell me to cross my errors instead and I’ll tell her I don’t want my teacher to know I made mistakes. Truth is, trying to erase your mistakes will only make it more obvious. Why not just cross out the mistakes made this year and move on. Don’t struggle erasing it, only to make it messer and more conspicuous.
In conclusion, strike out your 2018 mistakes and step into 2019 with a fresh blank page.
Happy New Year in advance!
