What a year....
It seems just like yesterday where we were wishing each other a happy new year!
I'm particularly thankful to God, not once this year was my freezer or my kitchen empty of food.
I also didn't spend any night in hospital on account of ill health, my boys or their dad too :)
God was indeed merciful, for the areas i lacked or didn't meet my goals or expectations there is plenty more to be grateful for once i just look to the other side!
I seize this opportunity to again appreciate the Almighty God, thank you Lord.
One of the many achievements of mine this year is that i have now learnt how to separate emotions from common sense. It took me many long years but i am now on that path and i tell you it's certainly a rewarding path to be on! Prior to now i would use my emotions to make many decisions especially in the area of friendships. I would delve in head first as long as it was to the benefit of my friend. After being bitten in the face severally i have now finally learnt to be wise.
One or two friendships have of course now been lost* due to this. Naturally ..... LOL
One friendship fizzled away, cant even fathom why anymore(i tried to work out the reason for a long time) but i guess as Yoruba people say 20 children cannot play together for 20 years!! Some will move onto other things!
This year(in the last quarter) i also learnt to pay more attention to self. In the area of external aesthetics i haven't always paid attention to myself and having kids just made it worse*. Before i check my clothes, or my needs i spend the little i have on the boys! Typical abi? In the last quarter i resolved to correct this, and slowly and steadily i am making progress, nothing remarkable but the journey of a thousand miles begins with a step abi?
Maybe i should do part 2 of this post its getting quite long LOL
