I chose to reflect on 2019 today, and not tomorrow 31 December, because we have our blog story already fixed that day.
2019…it wasn’t a good year for me. The failed investments and money lost left me in a state of bitterness for many long months. I was broken and almost without hope at some point. I pretended to function, because to do otherwise would have attracted the attention I didn’t want at the time. It was my burden, my mistakes, and I was determined this time to work through it alone.
When the month of November came to an end, I knew then I didn’t want to step into 2020 in that state of hopelessness and self-blame. I’d seen a tweet that talked about forgiving yourself and realised that I never ever forgive myself for my failures. So, I made up my mind to be kind to myself, to forgive myself my mistakes. To give myself a new hope, a new chance.
And thus, I choose to be thankful in spite of my losses. I am thankful for I am able to see the end of the year and decide to work harder for a better year. I am thankful that I am well in body, in mind and spirit as much as I’m able to be.
More than this, I am thankful for my family. They were a great support as always when I let them in. I am thankful for you, my blog family and for my readers. I am especially thankful for you all who buy every story I write. May God bless you all.
2019…it may not have been a good year, but I am choosing to leave it in a state of gratitude and hope. May the coming year, and years, be better. God bless us all.
May other years be better, Amen!
We are thankful to you too. The coming years will surely be better. Amen
