Another year. Another memoir. Today is the first day of a new year. 2014 has finished. All the stories, the memories, the happiness, the sadness, the tears and the joy; has finally come to an end. With the start of 2015 comes a new year of successes, journeys, missions; paths for us to take. If you think back to the year of 2014, how would you describe it? Would it have been a year of joys of reuniting with family, a year of success with the utmost happiness finally achieved, or the sadness of having failed yet again at something you really wanted? Or that one love who you thought would finally be in your hands, but had to let go off due to circumstances out of your control?
For a large portion of my life, I had thought of love as the driving factor for many decisions and paths I took in life. I felt that because I had found peace and belonging in our Lord, I was to take the view of every and anything in this world with a loving heart. I was to be humble, patient, giving, caring, honest, sincere, and above all, loving in all that I did. At times, I would feel extremely guilty because I often felt that I was not doing enough due to the lack of physical results. However, I had a friend remind me that although tangible successes can be reassuring, the everyday interactions and relationships continually being built upon also help one in bringing fellow Christians closer to GOD.
I hope 2015 will be a year of changes. Changes of being outside of the box, of trying new experiences, of being a new “me” and standing up for what I believe in and doing what I want. But also taking into consideration the consequences of my actions unto others.
I want to become more godly. I want to. Because I believe in the process of becoming more godly, I will inspire fellow brothers and sisters and I will be inspired. GOD has great plans for everyone; this is true I know.
Happy New Years everyone
