Maybe time isn’t passing, maybe it’s us passing through time. Time refreshes with every new day but that is not the case with us; we know that our outward man perishes though the inward man is renewed, like time, every new day. Every new day, mortality is exchanged. We are not exactly talking about time. Or are we?
My year was an impactful year. Each day records growth for me. It would seem as if each year makes it seem like I didn’t live the previous year. In some way I think that’s a good thing. I mean we always pray the prayer that the next shall surpass the former and in many ways it has; through self-discovery, forgiveness, weakness, changing destructive habits, taking back my mind, this year has been a full year.
Funny I wasn’t prepared for it in a way and it makes me realize that sometimes that the things you don’t prepare for form some of the best moments in your life, it’s a little weird, but it’s a beautiful thing.
As at January, the year didn’t hold too many promises. I was struggling. I was in way over my head so I wasn’t exactly expectant. But this adulting thing sha… iss like they didn’t coach us well for it o… I didn’t know. Lol.
I didn’t know a lot of things. I still don’t know a lot of things but I am glad I have had answers to questions in my heart. One of my greatest struggles happened in my mind. Here are my takeouts for the year.
I am also learning about finding fulfillment, wherever I am in the moment. I am not waiting on the dream job, or the marriage, or the hit-song, or the …… (put your own words). Right here, right now is a gift and I am making the best use of it. Here is what I am saying for instance, I turned down a better job offer as a lawyer to work with a start-up with so small a salary but it was the closest I got to HR. then I got this other major offer for me with an actual HR expert, and I am taking it. Do you see where I am getting? It may not happen all at once. I am not waiting for it to. I know it will. I am enjoying the journey of process. Gradual, upward movement. In the end it forms a beautiful story that I can tell my children and posterity, how I got here; that it wasn’t overnight, it was growth…gradual with low moments sometimes…but growth.
4. Oh by the way, there is this man I met… oh my heart… don’t worry I’ll gist you next year by God’s grace or you’ll see it in the news/social media feeds, whichever one comes first. Lol.
2019 has been a full year. 2020 will be even better by God’s grace. I am thankful for the gift of people and for the gift of time, the only rational way I could possibly measure progress in this terrifically large expanse we call life.
