I am now a year older. Well, let me correct that. I am PHYSICALLY a year older. Whether I want to admit it or not, the body grows older. My hair would soon turn white, my skin will be wrinkled, my knees will be weaker, my body will grow old. However, that doesn't mean that my soul, my heart, my enthusiasm for life will also grow old.
This day marks another turning point in my life. This is a day when I get to look back at the past year and recall about the things I did and didn't do. This is also the day when I get to look forward to another year, another batch of months and weeks and days full of intriguing blessings.
Well... since September 24, 2011 up to today, what have I learned? Let me share with you the best lessons I came to know about life. What have I been telling you all all these time? Whether you're ninety-five or twenty five, life will give you endless lessons.
Here's a list of another year's worth of learning.
1. God follows his own plans and has his own time in fulfilling dreams and wishes. We don't know what his plans are... we can only participate in the fulfillment of it. Trust in him is the most important and at the same time, trust yourself that you are worthy of whatever blessing he will give you. Hard work, perseverance and determination are your weapons while faith and prayer are your shields. Your failures will not define you... your faith will. Instead of wallowing in self pity when God allows you to experience failure, show him that you are capable of pulling yourself back together and whatever you imagine, whatever you desire, he will grant it to you. And when he does, when he gives you what you asks for, be thankful and be prepared. Never complain, never give up. Seize that blessing and own it. Your life is for you to live.( Hastily done this year. hahaCollapse )
