Ahh, the beginning of a year signifies a new start. We have a new look on life with a whole new set of goals in hopes of becoming a better person. For me, the end of the year was a time for reflection. I realized that life is too short to sweat the small things, to harp on past wrong doings, or allow the invasion of negativity. I ain't gone lie, your girl was going through some thangs, which is why I took the much needed time to get my affairs in order.
We can all agree that 2020 was different, but I think it was needed. It forced us to slow down and appreciate so much. It showed me the importance of time and to never take it for granted. It brought my family closer together spiritually, emotionally, and even virtually. Technology allowed us to connect and get to know more about each other. It also made me recognize the strength and resilience of my inner circle. I absolutely fell in love with my family because they are so much fun! Our intimate celebrations were everything for me. We experienced it all - from my son's drive-by, honk and wave graduation to birthdays, holidays, and my aunt's home going (may she rest in heaven). For every end is a new beginning and while I appreciated last year, I'm definitely looking forward to this new year.
My husband asked what I came up with for my new year resolution(s) and at the time I didn't have an answer because now my perspective on life is different. I simply asked God to order my steps or like my uncle says, Jesus take the wheel. I know these resolutions are a time-honored tradition that began with the Babylonians, who would make promises to the gods in hopes of earning favor in the coming year. But, I know that God favors me and knows my needs so why stress about promises or goals that, come February will most likely be broken any way? However, if I had to come up with something, I resolve to become a light of positivity and love. I'm coming in strong for 2021 - happy new year and blessings to all!
