It’s just hours to the end of 2016, but as emotionally as I am reflecting, I can’t help but be thankful to God for the year 2016 and hope in his promises for a great 2017.So many beautiful things happened in 2016. I met amazing people, learnt important lessons, changed my perspective about a lot of things for good and learnt to be more patient.
On the work front it’s not been a smooth ride but we keep pushing and striving to break new frontiers. The best success stories are usually those with the biggest setbacks!
On my birthday April 7 this year 2016 I was robbed and virtually all my work tools( 💻 , 📱6, three other phones, digital camera, iPad etc) were carted away, that’s aside jewelry(gold) and other valuables. I felt naked after the robbery but was immensely thankful because prior to the robbery I had seen some very spiritual signs. It could have been worse. I could have died. But I was unhurt, hale and hearty and I can’t help but keep thanking God for the gift of life.
My amazing friend Toyosi Ayeni was nothing short of an Angel 😇 that period.
The experience however made me somewhat paranoid and even more security conscious. However I do not forget that God is the ultimate protector, and this has been my constant reassurance. One day when the time is right, I hope to be able to share in detail some of my setbacks as a Blogger -including the robbery-and how I overcame them in the hope that it will encourage one or two people out there.
As the year comes to an end I’m having a rollercoaster of emotions but I’m reminded not to put my self under unnecessary pressure. Hard work, strategies and all is not that makes one successful. Of course these elements are key 🔑 but Gods blessings and grace is what we all need. So no matter the resolutions and rebranding and strategies set out for 2017, without Gods yes, it’s all naught. Prayer is certainly a major key 🔑 🔑 🔑 for us all even as we put in the work in our different endeavors. I pray that God blesses all our hard work and leads us on the right part.
So to all the restless ones like me right now, I’m reaching out to you. I pray God gives us all peace, clear direction for the new year and above all unquantifiable happiness.
Life is short and fleeting. Happiness is very key people.
To everyone else, I pray that 2017 ushers in all that you hoped for and more.
For the remaining part of the year, I pray that we will have no cause for sadness or despair and from this moment, yes, this very moment you read this, your mood will (be lifted) improve and it will be a progression of joy and happiness unlimited into the new year.
Don’t forget, the gift of life is the only guarantee that God has not finished with you regardless of how your 2016 turned out.
2017 will be amazing! Keep hope alive.
