Hello everyone. Happy new year! How are our new year resolutions and goals going. Well, I’m not exactly a ‘resolution’ kind of person, but I try to make decisions (and goals) and accomplish them, and I hope to continue in this light this year.
I realized that for years 2013 to 2015, I preferred the last months of the year [Sept. to Dec.] to the other months. When I tried to check through for the cause of this preference, I observed that towards the end of these years, I mostly took certain intentional beautiful/successful decisions/steps that for some reasons, I had missed out in the previous months of the years. Anyway, by 2016, I tried to get more intentional with my life. I critically started taking charge/ownership of decisions and actions that affected my life. Of course, if God is intentionally blessing us, then, we should likewise use/amass these blessings intentionally. I’d say that for the most part of last year I was guided by the fact that I would give account of my life at the end [not my father/siblings/mentors]. So, I’d say I became stronger in saying ‘No’ to things I considered unnecessary for me, and became courageous in explaining why I would not be following through many good-intended suggestions/opinions. I also think that this attitude comes with ‘getting older’, when one gets to the point of realization that life isn’t about impressing anybody but in living out all the greatness and blessings endowed within. In this 2017 therefore, I’m continuing with living out my best at all times- honing on my strengths and stretching myself through my weaknesses. One new thing however is that I’d be noting ‘high points’ wherever I find myself. I’d become a real witness of God’s intentional blessings over my life and how greatly or not so greatly it has been utilized by me. On my blog for instance; and this is where you get involved, I’ll be sharing ‘personal’ stuff as much as I can. Please, be my accountability partners. Let us intentionally live this year to the glory of our father.
So, as random as this blog has become, I’ll be noting down major points of my life in the hope that it will either bless someone, or that it will touch someone to bless me. So, for a start, I’m working hard in building ‘a kind of career’ [which has majorly kept me away from social media], and of which I hope to share the full story when it matures. For now however, I wish all of us a great 2017.
