I hope you all had a lovely end of year and a good start to this new one.
What resolutions if any have you made? For musings I resolved to finally take to heart the requests of readers and ensure my posts are shorter (I’ll try, I promise)
Have you ever graded your year? I mean looked back and thought of all what happened and classified it as good or bad year?
I find I always do so and this year it was even better. My 2014 received a an A grade, 80% now I know this year had a lot of pain worldwide, from the Chibok Girls in Nigeria to the evil massacre carried out by the Taliban. From the disappearance and crashing of planes to one of my personal heroines’ Maya Angelou’s death on the 28th of May 2014. It has not been good for a lot of people and it saddens me that the year which brought answers to quite a few of my prayers had to be so bad for others.
Now in 2013, I went through mini hell. And midway, at the brink of depression (a topic we’ll discuss this year) a dear friend challenged me (and followed me up) to give her a report at the end of each day of something good that happened, something that made me feel, something that made me smile, something, anything to be grateful for.
I realize that I and many others look at our problems more often than our blessings. We look at how far we have left to go rather than how far we’ve come.
