As 2016 is almost coming to an end. i cannot help but just sigh..
A lot has happened this year, i could write a whole book about the bad, the ugly the unexpected but i choose to focus on the brighter side.
I’ve always battled with applauding myself , but if 2016 is anything to go by i must admit this has been one hectic year and it has made me realise an inner strength that i didn’t know existed.
Beginning of the year i set out to accomplish some goals i am glad i did that i set the bar too hard and i surprised myself, it wasnt easy but i pulled through. ‘If i can survive this year i can survive anything’ was my mantra. Surely i am alive and still breathing something to be grateful for, but lesson learnt, i will not survive everything, for every win there is a lose somewhere somehow.
I found myself losing interest in somethings yet at the same time i also found passion in others. I must admit most of the times my emotions were like a see saw, at some point i thought i was losing myself; the transition process, sacrifices, and hard decisions, all made it seem so hard to keep my head up.
As the adage goes sometimes you have to lose yourself in order to find yourself. This roller coaster ride, taught me lessons about myself. In all the hustle and bustle of life, i almost forgot to look up, to be thankful to God and to appreciate the people who make me, like my wife and family.
Off course life has its own way of pushing us out of our comfort zones, this change may be unsettling and scary yet most of the times it’s for the best. The most important thing is realising that there is nothing to fear but fear itself..
