Come to think of it,was it not just recently that we celebrated Christmas and surprisinly Christmas is here again,in exactly 12 days we would be celebrating the birth our Lord Jesus Christ.Time really flies.The excitement that the festive season brings is overwhelming.
I want to impress on us something that has been on my mind for sometime. Many of us had goals,dreams and aspirations ,that we wanted to achieve.Its 12 days to Christmas right.....well I call it 12 days in retrospection,during these days ,I see it as an opportunity to reflect over the previous months,weeks and days.
What went wrong:Most of us had goals and dreams we wanted to achieve,but some way somehow,we have not been able to achieve them,sometimes we even feel like giving up.Its tupsetting and disappointing,yeah we all through it.Its natural to feel down,but instead of dwelling too much on it,there is the need to analyse the situation and find out what went wrong,what should have been done,more like a hypothesis and fix them,we become better to achieve our goals and aspirations.
Was there any growth:Physically,most of us increase in size,height,weight,others too remained the same,others too reduced in weight.Am talking of personal growth in our behaviours,how we take offences,have we grown spiritually,emotionally,socially,just to mention a few.No one is perfect but we can try to better than who we were before. I admit its not easy especially in a world full of imperfect people,so through all the adventures,experiences,the fiasco that confront us daily,we need to grow through it,learn our lessons and say to ourselves that we are going to be better through this experience,with God on our side everything is going to be fine.
Springboard :As we move into the new year,what is your aspiration or motivation,what do you expect the new year to be like.Let the passing year be a yardstick to the new year,even with the little time left,something can be done,dont lose hope yet.
Lessons learnt:There were some lessons ,personally I learnt so much,I learnt that life is too short,appreciate and love those who love you,pray for them and move on.
I throw a challenge to you that make your life become better than who you were before.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL.
