The Year 2017 has commenced in the blink of an eye.
I see resolutions, wishes, lists and hopes floating away on social media platforms. As always, I take the time out to read these resolutions and hopes. I smile as the immense sense of whatever-is-left-of-hope in this world, fills me.
Flashes of all the beautiful souls that I encountered in the year 2016, kept appearing before me like mirrors. Some broken. Others fixed and struggling to remain so. Some entirely deprived of hope. Others afraid of the consequences of having hope. Some lost, while others yearning to be found….and the list is as eternal as our lists of resolutions go each year.
Every individual though, has one question in common to ask -“WHY ME?”
Why me – A question most of us ask ourselves. Sometimes, even knocking on the doors of heaven for an answer to this aching question.
We humans were created weak. The sooner we humble ourselves to come to terms with this undying truth, the better. However, the advantage of fragility is in that, any form of strength then displayed, is worthy of glory beyond one’s understanding !!
” You are STRONGER than you seem, BRAVER than you believe & SMARTER than you think.” Yes! YOU truly are.
In being weak and surviving it every moment, you are magnanimously and gloriously becoming the “you” that you only hope you can be.It is all a matter of perpectives.Strike out those endless never-gonna-get-down-to-it resolutions this time around and command yourself to see the positives in everything and everyone that constantly tries to tell you otherwise.
You have come so far and you will get through everything else that is lined up for you this year.
You are not anything less than, and always much.. MUCH more than what you imagine yourself to be.
You will survive everything that is thrown at you and you will walk out of it a winner!
And you ARE.
“Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?”
Hold that thought (for eternity) and wish yourself a spectacular new year!!
