“Time flies” – The ever popular phrase. Where does it go? Why don’t we value it until it’s gone. Just like the sun’s unfaltering commitment to rise everyday or even the simple comfort attained immediately after taking off a pair of excruciatingly uncomfortable shoes at the end of a long day. We take it for granted. We argue that it is abstract; man-made for guidance and structure. But whatever the case, it is a constant insurmountable race and we’re all left with the same outcome: Expiration….
The year has finally come to an end. The time has run out in my 30 before 30 race. I am finally 30 years old and what a year it’s been!! I have embarked on different adventures and accomplished things which have surprised even me. This year has been one filled with self-reflection, discovery, growth and development. There have been several epiphanies and challenges.
If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll notice I mention the words CONTROL and CHOICE often. I believe that life can be mostly about those two key factors. We have the choice in what we allow ourselves to be controlled by and what we in turn control. Similarly, we have full control of those choices. I know, I know; It’s not always that simple but I feel it can be applied in a lot of different settings. For instance, this year I chose to make a list of 30 things to accomplish and tried to maintain the self-control in order to attain them. No, I didn’t achieve all of them but I have chosen to applaud myself either way and I aim to sustain the mindset that I am in control of my actions, my life, my future….
………and the future is bright (By HIS grace)
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who followed me in this journey – your continued support and encouragement has been invaluable.
