Dear Child Of Tomorrow!

Life is too short, so don't live your life according to the approval of others, but rather live it aligned with the truth and your dreams.
Let purpose be your motivating tool. Do not be a prisoner of your past. There are no mistakes in life, only lessons. A day without learning is like a day without breathing. So learn from your previous mistakes and do not regret. Regret is a choice!
Don't give too much attention to the number of followers you have. If anything, care more about the number that you inspire.
Live up to your values, your standards and set a benchmark.
Pursue your dreams! Become the architect of your future.
Have a go getter's attitude and make a big difference!
Dream big! Start small! Act now!
Again i say…Life's just too short, so don't play little.👌🏽

Cheers to a New Year…Another chance to get it right.

It’s been quite a journey for most of us in 2011. All of us have grown a year older and of course wiser.  Some of us have remained stagnant in our ways of life and some have managed to accomplish a few goals or more. We have said goodbye to a few people from our lives, either in death or end of a relationship, and met some great people in our daily walk of life. People that have helped to make a difference in one way or another. Whether its in a negative or positive way, we can say there’s always a lesson learned and we should  try to keep that lesson.

The start of a new year gets people excited for new things. We begin to think about resolutions to keep and to improve on.

But I am wondering,…How many of us actually kept our resolutions for 2011….???

I had so many resolutions lined up at the beginning of 2011. I remember vividly, i had them written on a cute notebook i had bought from WHSmith. The notebook had cute little rabbits at the front page and it was white and blue. It was as though the manufacturer had made it especially for me and that was part of the excitement of writing the resolutions.

So i sat down quietly in my room before i headed to church and i wrote down all the things i wanted to be able to do before the 31st of December 2011. I had it down that i wanted to do my driving, stop eating fast foods and sodas, basically eat healthy. I wanted to take part in a charity run or do a hike, and to excel in my studies. Well, I can tell you now that the whole year just went past and all I managed to do was one resolution, because I had no choice but to do it. Failure they say is not an option, so exceling in my studies was a must!! The rest, only God knows.

So now we have struck 2012 and I’m sure most of us have made a list of about 5 to 10 resolutions to follow this year. But I decided to do things differently this time. My main aim is not to have resolutions to follow and keep, but to have a set of goals that are achievable and even though I do not manage to accomplish them by the end of this year, at least I would have started them and would be halfway through the mission, but depending on  size.

I have said to myself time and again that a new year is a new start for me in many things including bettering myself, but as time has gone by, I learnt that every day is a brand new day to start over from what you messed up on yesterday, so there’s no point of waiting till the next year to make that change.

But for the rest of us who still have their resolutions, focus on them one by one and do not stop at nothing or get side-tracked. In everything you choose to do, put in all your effort and do not lose hope, neither give up. Remember, you are the captain of your own ship, strive to be the best.

As we run through this New Year, it is my pleasure to tell you , don’t look back on where you used to be in sadness and regret, but rather… PAUSE…. and give thanks to God for this far that He has brought you. Forget the worries and situations of yesterday and SMILE…because it is a new day!

It is a blank page on a 365 page book…. How well will you write your new story?
