Before the start of each year I normally take some time to reflect. After Reflection I would make a statement on how I want the year to be. At times it is prolific, declarative or reflective of the year I just had and the year I want. Speaking it into the atmosphere: so that words may manifest and become molecules thus bringing forth your desires and wants into the universe. This year I haven’t written my piece for 2018 as yet but I decided to share with you that of 2017 and 2016.
Reflection 1 for 2017: Sometimes Excommunication is for your own good.
On that day ‘The enemy was placing these doubts in my mind because last week was a tough week for me socially. Some of my friends excommunicated me for no apparent reason that I know of. I start questioning myself. I felt rejected these are persons I trusted and went through a difficult time with in college. We bonded during the shared experiences and I thought our friendship was on a solid foundation.
I wanted answers because I consider myself a good friend or so I thought, but I wasn’t getting any answer so I prayed about it. And I got the answer: When God is enlarging your territory and giving you growth and development. You will outgrow friends and circumstances. People will become uncomfortable and stop talking to you because you’re going higher and circle becomes bigger or smaller. It is God’s way of protecting from the poison that was coming your way because of your new territory or talent. I know it hard to lose persons close to you but he will give you persons who will help you to expand further and who will be better friends than the ones you lost.
I wasn’t sure if I was ready to share these internal thoughts publicly but I know there is a message in there for someone out there. #EmbraceYourNewTerritory #HeWillAssignDestinyKeepers to help you on your journey. Dont fight #HisProcess it for your #Good #TrustInit you will understand soon.
Reflection 2 for 2017: A year of Trusting God
My year was filled with adventures and obstacles: a year where I had to depend on God’s strength and not mine own: A year where I had to place my trust in His Divine Will, a year where I had to step out blindly in faith knowing that he would’ve made a way: a year where he sent Destiny Helpers to help me along my journey.
It was a year of rekindled relationships. A year of reinforcing bonds that was impermeable; establishing friendships that expanded my territory, and knowledge of other cultures and spaces. A year of trusting in friends from long existing friendships to newly established ones, a year of saying good-bye to abusive relationships and friendships.
A year of exploring beyond my comfort zone. A year of expanding my mind and breaking limitations. A year of financial wisdom and exploration. A year of saying Yes to all of me.
A year where I stood my grounds, where I stood firm in what I believed. A year where I fell to my knees and wept. A year where I smiled a lot more (all the compliments about my teeth). A year where I learned the true tenets of Happiness.
The start 2016
An old year has passed, our path have crossed, whether it was joy, pain, laughter or tears I appreciate every moment we exchanged. I learned, I have grown, shed a few tears, laughed a lot, and explored some areas of my mind, body and soul. All in all it has been a beautiful experience filled with success. I loved the good; appreciate the bad it all made me into a better person. Here to new learning experiences.
For this the first day of a new year, I pray for strength, patience and grace to endure. I pray for the same for my family and friends. God shall bless you profoundly. This is going to be your year to soar to new heights, to break down barriers, to establish new businesses, follow your passion, to fall in love, to get married, to be single, to find spirituality, to live, to give birth, to adopt, to study, to travel to a new country, to write that book/story and to be a blessings or a lesson to someone.
Give thanks for small mercies, share your big ones. Encourage someone each day; you’re gradually changing the world. Be the best at what you do. Love and appreciate yourself, your family, friends and even the ones who give you a hard time. You shall prosper in everything you do. This is your season. Declare and claim it. God’s Blessings.
End: 2016 has been a mixed year for me but throughout it all God has never turned His back on me. I had to step out in faith, and trust God. Had some awesome experiences, filled with laughter and smiles. Had some down ones that shook me to the core, the loss of friends that were family. Made some awesome new friends, rekindled some old relationships.
2016 was the first year I was festive about my birthday thanks Menkys O.Normally spend it in solitude reflexing etc. Had a nice Bday dinner with love ones and friends.
My best friend and cousin at primary school visited Jamaica for the first and we had an awesome time. We need another experience maybe Europe or London Nicholas.
I dated a coworker. It was beautiful. We look so good together words can’t explain. I broke one of the rules. Siempre te quiero Janiel. Barbara you know you’ve a special place in my heart and we shared some memories that are irreplaceable. Tqm.
I read a lot, listened to tapes, watched many videos about growth, leadership and development.
I spoke my mind a lot, got into trouble for it but knew that justice was done; for those who challenged me and broaden my horizon. For all my new friends from various countries and cultures you’ve molded the newer version of me. Garima, Indiana, Sabrina Biyah, Shakara, Garfield, Romario, and the list go on.
For 2017 I wish we challenge and encourage each other more. The universe will conspire and give us our desires. Growth, Love, Happiness in all your endeavors.
