As we face the remaining days still with unresolved issues from a to do list drawn up even before circa 2014 entered the scene with a lot of promise many items on the resolution list will be thrown the dustbin of one’s personal history unrealized.
Many on list could have had satisfactory results had it not been for the absence of a crucial element of unwavering resolve. Strong resolve is the key element characterized by “no matter what happens, no matter what the circumstance will be, the writer will stick religiously to his original plan”.
There will always be excuses and rationalization for not being able to stick to a plan but what matters really is the abundance of a strong will and the ability to work hard to succeed.
Depending on one’s set standard, being able to do even only some resolutions in the “to do list for the year” makes some a charge of accomplishment.
As we take stock of where we have been this year against our plans for the New Year it would help to know where we are in relation to our future course.
It is a good timing to look forward into the new year and take inventory of what we intend to do next year and the measure of resolve that we would have to muster to attain them.
As we take time out to take stock of our readiness to face the challenges of the year ahead, it would be wise to realize that maybe one of the many reasons we deal with the same things year in and year out is because in our journey we never let go of the unnecessary baggage that slows our walk, Maybe we cling to old habits and never let them really go in spite of the need “to travel light”.
There may be habits and attitudes that hinder our attainment of our resolutions which simply need to be bundled together and thrown away. In this way our focus would be sharper and precise.
The year that will soon be behind us soon will leave with bitter or happy memories of what we’ve through. No matter, those challenges and bumps along the way have been calibrated not to weigh us down but to teach us important lessons that we will employ for the next bout of challenges.
As we all live in a tumultuous world beset with problems and trepidations learning that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose” have sort of provide the soothing element for our fatigued spirit and become a source of power to strengthen our resolve to accomplish what we have resolved to do in our New Year’s resolution list.
HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR, EVERYONE.
