It’s been a long hard year and as this year is drawing closer to the end I am starting to feel a sense of relief. I gather from allot of my friends and clients that 2013 hasn’t been very good to them either…
For me this year has broken trust, brought fights, grudges and unforgiveness, maybe I’ll go as far as to say plain ol’ bad luck. Guess 13 isn’t my lucky number after all.
What 2013 HAS brought me that was good, is the realisation that all that glitters is not gold. People’s actions scream louder than their words and it’s not worth it to give your loyalty, love and consideration to someone who will not give it back. I’ve learned that my son is the most important relationship I will ever have, apart from my relationship with God and my husband. I’ve had a chance to start getting along with people I never thought due to others’ grudges and through being kind and accepting to them I found forgiveness.
This year I learned that I can be whoever I want to be. I found a new passion and started an entrepreneurship which is truly exciting! I’ve learned that I can forgive others even if they’re not sorry, it’s much harder than when they actually say sorry and I have to do it every day, but it is possible.
My son has brought me so much joy! His 1st birthday party was a huge success and we are VERY proud of him. Watching him reach the milestones, overcoming it and finding confidence in himself has brought me great pleasure and Thankfulness to our Lord that we have a healthy, happy son. He loves me so much he never wants to let me go, he’s constantly with me and eventhough it can get a bit overwhelming sometimes, my love for him is so strong and it will never change. Except when he’s married someday, then he can cling to his wife. Lol!
You see, that’s the thing… The day a man gets married he must leave his parents and cling to his wife! That’s what the word teaches us. A husband should protect, support, guide his family. A wife should honour her husband in all that is good and right in the Eyes of God…
Sometimes we don’t experience it that way, but with God anything is possible.
I am putting 2013 behind me, I am leaving the hurt behind and I am moving forward. Those who don’t like me for being me and not dance according to their tune should deal with it. You’re either with me or you’re not. I couldn’t care less. I’ve moved on.
2014 has major things instore for me and I am going to give it all I got!
Have a blessed Christmas and an amazing new year!
