For many, the year 2020 was dreadful and we may understand why they say so. It is a surprise to some that several people had it as the best year yet since they were born. To me, 2020 was merely another year with a different script that I had to live by; growing in age and closer to family as well as in academia/profession.
Speaking of resolutions, I have always wondered why several people make New Year’s resolutions. Is it the need to have some sort of direction? To be a better person or improve lifestyle. Who knows really. Anyway, last year, I decided to participate in the resolution drive. I made 2 resolutions which I will not share here. I did my best to achieve them but God had a different plan. As you know, a man may make plans but God has the final say. The obstacles I met along the way said otherwise and eventually ended in a happier place though without my resolutions fulfilled. I am actually grateful to the pandemic in many ways.
2021 came with a whole different lifestyle, hard to know really what to expect. In fact, I don’t even know where to start with resolutions away from home and out of school yet I have lived like that for over 22 years of my little life. Having learnt to trust in God’s plan for my life, I find it difficult to claim what I need for my life. I can only say, if the Lord wills, He will help me get here and there, no hard feelings if I don’t. I do not think I have discarded my resolutions from last year, they are now things I trust God to provide this year with so many more blessings.
As I conclude, I ask that we all be good people from this year on. You never know, you may be fulfilling someone’s resolutions/plans – you could be the dream they have always had or the answer to the prayer that they are trusting God for. Let’s bless and become blessings to others.
