2018: LESSONS LEARNT AND THE JOURNEY AHEAD

Phew! 2018 is finally packing its load to leave for good. It has been a wonderful year actually, it came with its own challenges and of course it had its own good moments. I know if I ask you how the journey has been you sure have a lot to say.

A lot has happened during the course of the year but we are grateful for the gift of life and we can all say in sincerity that God has been faithful. I know yours might not be so cozy, it is even possible you have not achieved all your goals but look to the brighter side! You can still do more so don’t give up!

LESSONS LEARNT

There are so many lessons I learnt this year but some stood out for me and I hope it helps and challenges you as you progress and journey into 2019.

Whatever God tells you to do just do it:

One major lesson 2018 taught me was that God’s instruction does not have to make sense before you listen. I remembered trying to argue my way when I heard the instruction to write “there was a girl” but looking back at the journey the number of testimonies that came after that book humbled me and I’ve learnt to always listen to the father’s voice and obey, It saves you from a lot  of stress so in 2019 just like Mary said to the servants “whatever he tells you to do just do it”

Build relationships not platforms: 

A lot of times we struggle to be relevant and be seen but the secret is simple just build good relationships. You will always need people, when you are good men will always come running when you need them. Life was not designed to be lived alone so in 2019 be intentional about your relationships.

Be humble and teachable

This is  one major lesson 2018 taught me. Humility opens door for you, when you are willing to learn you will sit before kings. This coming year I can assure you that humility will help you if you choose to keep her.

Be intentional about growth:

Growth is not a very easy process, I can tell you it takes a lot of effort. This year I promised myself I was going to read a lot of books but at the end of the day I didn’t meet my target but it was a big lesson for me that is not about the words of my mouth but it is an intentional process.

Always acknowledge the place of God

I can’t underemphasize the place of God. He is the most important factor. I am never self-made I’m just a girl loved recklessly by the father! Take time to always acknowledge God after every little victory and I can bet you are setting yourself up for bigger victories.

THE JOURNEY AHEAD

 

I know we are all excited at the thought of a new year but what happens when the Euphoria ends and we are faced with a major challenge. Like a preganant woman we are all expectant about what 2019 will bring but while we wait we need to be very intentional.

Earlier this month, I tried writing my goals for the New Year and it occurred to me that did I really achieve all my goals in 2018 and all of a sudden I became so disheveled and at a point I was getting so paranoid but I had to come to myself and I realized that it’s okay not to have it figured out, just relax and celebrate your little victories.

It is not enough to set goals there is a need to be very intentional, what are the steps to take to achieve the goals and have a good result. Be very deliberate and intentional and if you can, get an accountable partner to put you in check.

CONCLUSION

2018 is coming to an end and if you didn’t get to achieve all your goals, don’t wallow in pain cheer up and start again. To those who encountered heartbreaks, pains and major challenges this year it is not the end of the world.

2019 promises to be brighter, don’t give up on love, don’t give up on your dreams I look forward to celebrating and sharing your success story.
