2016 has definitely been one of the most weirdest year. Started the year with amazing experiences and cherished memories but ending it on the most emotionally stressful and weirdest note.
I have managed to stick it out in one job role for over an year now and I think that is one of the biggest achievements in terms of my career. However personally in terms of relationships I have still more work to do. This year has made me realize to not trust people so easily as I do ( building more on the trust issues I already have with past relations with so called friends). People are never what they seem, and I do not know why I keep learning this lessons ever so often.
This year has taught me that people are pretentious and will use you only for their benefit. If you play the cards right you too can make something out of this. My work place surrounds around working with people who claim to be God fearing (yes now I am being completely judgmental) who lack any sort of professionalism at all levels, but only that which they think are professional. Lots of unfair decisions that made my blood boil and my skin crawl, when it was put in the whole ‘It’s God Plan’ but merely just human decisions.
But I saw through all this with God’s grace and He was kind enough to give me His peace. Stepping into 2017 I have a few resolutions which I intend to keep hopefully.
Resolutions for the New Year:
- Talk to God more
- Live – I have always thought and waited for someone to come through (a friend / significant other/ family) but they never do. This year I am going to live it for me, travel a bit on my own and do things alone, travel a bit may be.
- Stop Apologizing – One of the first things my most loved bosses said to me was to Stop Apologizing. I realized that I was being apologetic for who I am. So this New Year I am going to stop apologizing for being me and what I have to say even if its rude. Sometimes it may come off as being bossy but hey you can’t be Beyonce if you ain’t bossy!
- Not be afraid – I have always been afraid of hurting people or getting hurt. This last year so many hurt me emotionally and mentally to a point where not I am just a broken person with trust issues. And I have always been afraid to do things thinking that people will think bad of me. However this year I am going to be a bit more selfish than usual and not be afraid to do things my way. This doesn’t mean that I will intentionally hurt others. But I will put my emotions over others when it comes and do what’s right by me.
- Fight and not give up – Fight for what is rightly yours.
- Travel more
- Read and write more
- Sing more
