Should I say it again??
OK here goes Am Back!
I am not sure if you remember that I actually started blogging a few years back ( in 2011) at the time it seemed to be quiet easy to be honest the only thing I really did not do was create time, the culture and consistency in pursuing blogging.
I could blame it on my life; and to be honest I really do have an interesting life!
It’s 2014 – the final quarter of this year. And boy has this been a year!
I cannot even start to explain my 2014 – it has been the year that I have been forced to grow, forced to face myself in the mirror countless times, forced to decide if am going to attain my dreams, forced to embrace struggle, forced to go through some humiliating aspects of life in order to become humble.
I have had to come to the point of deciding what is important and what is not, to decide if I want to be among the 3% or the 97% in every area of my life.
It has not been an easy year.
But in all this – I have learned to answer a question that my friend asked me in the beginning of my shenanigans.
Why do you think this is happening to you?
I had no answer as I had been asking myself the very same question.
And to add to her question, I asked myself – and why now?
And to further make sure I did get and answer; the most pressing of all questions….. What is it that am supposed to learn so that I don’t come back to this “place” again!
It is almost as if God in His own humorous way, had finally gotten my attention.
My attention to what???
My attention to ME. Imagine that! I had not really being paying some real attention to me.
I pay a whole lot attention to my family, to whats going on around me and others but I realized, I was not registering or resonating with what was going on around me. No real focus on ME- My life, My Vision, My goals My dreams My destiny- My legacy.
And that had to change – and boy have I started changing!
Am coming through this storm- am now getting out and can see the blue sunny skies up ahead.
It has not been easy and it has not been fun. But as I look at where I am today. It has been worth it.
I have come to accept and appreciate that my life needs me in It- fully participating, fully engaged, fully alive and living.
And now am fully determined to exhaust every minute of this breathe I take in, with all the lessons I have had to learn and looking forward to all the lessons yet to come!
So I say, BRING IT ON.
Am ready, am confident and determined – my mind is made up. Am secure, am focused and now very very alive.
Most of all Am happy!
