As 2014 draws to an end, I can’t help but contemplate the year so far.
This year has been challenging, but also full of good news at every turn. I’ve been able to accomplish a lot, and I believe it’s as a result of planning ahead, working hard and God’s grace.
At the end of December 2013, I decided on my new year’s resolutions and was determined to achieve them. These resolutions were specific and tangible things I knew that with hard work and the right mind set, I would be able to achieve.
I had decided to be a vegetarian for the first quarter of the year, which I did.
I had planned to develop better eating habits and increase my fitness, which I have and as a result went down a dress size, and I’m now the healthiest I’ve ever been.
However, apart from this seemingly inconsequential things, I graduated with amazing results, started this website and passed my driving test the first time around. I also made other personal new year’s resolution which have began to unfold.
What I’m trying to say is, if you fail to plan, then you plan to fail.
Sometimes we stop ourselves from dreaming because we think it’s impossible. But I’m here to say, allow yourself those dreams because when you do, and then start to take steps towards those dreams, they’ll begin to manifest with time.
You’ll never catch me not dreaming. My days are filled with different thoughts and plans. I’m constantly challenging myself to improve on those goals I want to accomplish.
My testimony has been abundant this year, and I hope it inspires you to also pursue your dreams and set out things that you want to accomplish in 2015.
Now is the time!
Don’t wait till you’re in 2015 to start tabling what you want. Instead, start to dream it now and as soon as the new year begins, make sure you stick to your plans. Yes, you might deviate at some point or your progress might be slower than you may expect, but you must never give up.
Rome wasn’t built in a day!
They say you’ll find the light at the end of the tunnel, but only if you keep going. Hence you better be prepared for the long ass journey.
Nothing great comes easy, but it will be worth it.
All the best as we count down to the new year! xx
