I have long given up making a list of resolutions when a new year comes. Largely because I believe that the step to changing for the better is possible in any given day a person wills to. But that’s another story.
So about fresh starts.
Who doesn’t love new beginnings?
Endless of them.
I think we all do.
Regardless of status, previous achievements or backslides, we are all equally wealthy in terms of time. When the clock struck midnight on December 31st, everything was back to square 1. Reset. Restart.
Time. A gift that is probably the most priceless there is. But how we will make use of it will spell a major difference from who we are when the clock went 00:00:00 to the person and the life we envisioned in the coming year will be.
The in-between, ika nga.
Just imagine 365 days (350 as I write. What???) to walk and see through to the end. Amazing, right?
However way you do yours, my prayer is that we all get to the end strong, grateful and better.
Yes. We’re talking about beginnings but I’m already at the finish line. (Woman!)
Seriously, my other big prayer is that from today until God only knows when, may we all – in the words of Solomon Hicks, “Dream not just to get by. But to dream big dreams. Have the humility to ask for help. Have the courage and commitment to work hard. DREAM BIG.”
Everywhere I go I’m gonna let my light shine…
