Farewell to Year 2016

new-year

Now that we have entered 2017, what is new in your life? The idea is to continue with what is good, noble, progressive and praiseworthy. Don’t do carry-over from 2016. That is, negativity about life, challenges and drawbacks should be left behind. Starting 2017 with positive reslolutions is the best thing one can do for themselves and those around them.¬†Today is a new day and we all have a chance to start afresh.

No matter what obstacles or failures you might have experienced in the last year, determine to start afresh in all spheres of life. Dare to dream anew, knowing that everything is possible to those who believe. Then plan and act on your what your believe to achieve your goals.

Today I woke up late, as is always the case on the first day of New Year. On opening my bedroom curtains, the first thing I saw was a tiny round sun struggling to shine behind some clouds in the midst of thick fog. It got me thinking: Why don’t we, human beings, also thrive in our challenges? Why does the sun still shine even in unfavourable condotions? It might lose it’s beautiful rays, but it shines on upon us when it’s daytime.

This year I determine to shine on despite challenges that might come my way. My resolution is to be the best that I can be in whatever circumstances. You may also choose to do this and much more in 2017.

I hope you have a productive and wonderful year.
