So far, the journey has been bitter sweet, with ups and downs, highs and lows. But, then again, that is the classic definition of life.
I got inspired to write this post, as I was rejected for an application I made a couple of weeks ago. Now, this was upsetting because I thought I was going to be successful, but it was not to be. Also, it is my birthday in a couple of days (today actually) and I cannot help but go through a period of reflection on the past year.
How has the journey been so far?
Thursday, the 2nd of November made it one year since we officially launched Baruch Events! My goodness! Where did all the time go? I do not think I can get over this, I mean one year of doing LIFE! Who am I? Small girl, big God.
Then, today, the 7th of November is my birthday. This girl is 28 today!! Small me…I look back, and the only thing I want to tell my confused 21-year-old self is: there is no need to worry, because He’s got you.
I have spent the better part of today, sleeping, chilling, being happy, and counting my blessings. There is no party; I am getting a bit too old for that (lol).
Now, has the last year been all rosy? Absolutely not!
There were days of worry, fear, and ‘what if’s’. There were also days of hope, high spirits, and faith in the process. And, there were days of numb feelings. One thing that was constant in the middle of these mixed emotions is the end goal. I had a dream, I still am dreaming, and I know what I saw in those dreams. Therefore, regardless of the state of my emotions, I never failed, and will never fail to hold on to my dreams.
To you, I am telling you to hold on and trust the process. Please, please, please, do not give up!
All I am trying to say is, I am grateful for life, the blessings (because I am one blessed lady), the journey, and the gift of family and friends that I get to do life with.
The truth is that the journey to fulfilling and living life is still ongoing. And, in my small number of years, I have learnt all this and so much more.
I am still going through life, with its ups and downs of course. But, I will not let that deter me, and you should also not let anything stop you from achieving your dreams. So, I sulked for a while, but got over it quickly.
Happy Birthday to me!!!!
I have made a choice to see the glass half-full and not half empty. I hope you would to…
