My Heart Felt Message to You

Just like me, a lot of us are eager about 2017, we cannot wait to start the New year. 2016 has been one tough year, it has brought with it hard, very low and lonely times. Like a friend of mine said, ‘my year ended in October and I am just doing the mannequin challenge till the New year‘ .

Although 2016 came with its own Lion share of challenges, it gets really easy to beat ourselves; oh! I could have done this, or that, or handled this situation better. You might even be in the category of people who feel like 2015 was a better year. Don’t be too hard on yourself, learn the lessons from you mistakes and move on!

Sometimes, we make a mess of our lives with our own hands BUT remember:

 Everything happens for a reason, for a season, for a lesson or for a blessing. God is able to turn your mess to a message don’t throw in the towel, not now, not ever!

If Life refuses to be a bed of roses for you, create your own bed with a different flower. -Toyincoker

If there is anything I have learnt in 2016, it is Resilience! the drive that makes you cross out quitting as an option! your life might not be what you envisage it to be, but if you don’t quit on yourself and God, you would see everything falling in pleasant places! (and it might not happen as quick as you expect). They say life is not a bed of roses, I agree, but roses are not the only beautiful flowers in the world. If life refuses to be a bed for roses for you,  create your own bed with sunflowers, lilies, tulips, plumeria YOU NAME IT!!! stop throwing a pity party for yourself, its going to take you no where.

As 2017 approaches, we must realize that to succeed there has to be a renewal of the mind. we must begin to see the possibility in impossibility; what you cannot visualize you cannot achieve. Build resilience, you need it to face the coming 365 days. I do not promise it would be easy, but I am quite certain that if we maintain a positive outlook, build our resilience and cross out the option of giving up or settling for mediocrity,  2017 would not just be an orally awesome year, it would be an evidently great year.

Approach the New Year without Fear.

    I love this article. 2016 has been a year of numerous life lessons . I am confident that 2017 will be better as I apply these life lesson. If I didn’t break this year, I don’t think I will ever

    That part about doing the mannequin challenge till the new year, savage! But I totally agree with what you said about this year and challenges. It’s not been the smoothest year for a lot of us, but if we’re still here by the new year, that alone is a reason to smile. The end of a thing is always better than the beginning. The year may not have been the best for a lot of us but it’s not over yet. Stay positive and keep looking forward.

    I agree with you 100%. 2016, so far, has been a most challenging year for me. At a point, it seemed like i have been doing the mannequin challenge since January 1st. But i know i have something which i need to be grateful for….Life. With life comes hope. And with hope comes possibilities. I think sometimes we are too hard on ourselves.
    Let’s relax and enjoy the last few days of this year. Afterall we have achieved something millions of people didn’t….Life. Let’s enjoy it. What have we to lose?
