Day 30: Ifunanya

First of all thank you Ms. Perry for giving me this opportunity. It was a last minute decision, but I’m glad to be a part of this year’s edition. Over the years I have followed your blog, most especially “31 Days, 31 Voices” and I must say you’ve been doing a great job.

This year has been pretty fast, I mean, Christmas was just a “few months” back and I can literally remember the Easter celebration of yesterday, then, KABOOM!! We are back in December.

2019 has been a year of self-rediscovery. Life is in phases, and this year saw the beginning of another phase of my life. The phase full of uncertainties, disappointments, joys and laughter. The phase where reality of adulthood begins to manifest. I couldn’t have made it through this year without God, family and friends.

I started out this year in utter frustration, bitter and angry. I will always remember 2109 as the year my faith in God was tried and my trust in God grew. If there’s any basket I want to put all my eggs in, then it’s definitely God’s basket.

One of my major lessons learnt this year is that, you really can’t put God in a box. He’s indeed limitless and always surpasses anything you can ever imagine. I mean I’ve experienced that before in the past, but it was like a reminder of how Mighty and Majestic God really is. Man may propose but God disposes. I’ve been on this Journey with the Trinity for a little over a decade and I’m still in awe every time God turns up for me. It just never gets old, there is this breath of freshness every time.

Even in the midst of the uncertainties that stormed my 2019, I still have some lovely memories I am thankful for. I’m thankful for Friends, both new and old. True friends are gold and my purse is filled with them. I’m thankful for family, they are my biggest supporters and I cherish them so much. I’m thankful for the Body of Christ, I’m thankful for the gift of life and love, most of all, I’m thankful to God for being God.

What lessons will I be taking with me from 2019?

1. To push farther than whatever I think is my limit. I’mcapable of so much more than I give myself credit for.
2. Everyone can’t be like me: I subconsciously always expected people to behave and think like me, but that changed this year. I discovered I was less happy when people don’t do things the way I would. See ehn, I’m kind of a perfectionist, not the extreme kind but one nonetheless, so it was difficult for me to accept how other people did things. Since I changed that mindset, life has been a whole lot easier.
3. Love, Live, Learn.
4. You only live once, make wise choices. Live in the moment, but don’t forget that every action we take now has consequences.
5. The power of praying everyday cannot be underestimated.
6. Never let Praising God be lacking from your heart and lips.

Finally, I want to wish my Pseudo twin a happy birthday!!!

My new year literally begins in a few hours and I’m  excited for the future.

Happy new year in advance.
