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.

Love God, love people.
