It is twenty and something o’clock! In less than four hours, I will turn 23 years old! A new year! I do not celebrate birthdays but each new added year makes me have a deep thought!
My 22 year old was chaotic! My- let’s say- first year as a grown up adult specially in choosing my career and work! I had also to deal with new issues and make some important decisions like buying a car and a land or having new friends! I have made a lot of errors also! Choosing the wrong person as a friend! Thinking the wrong way about something or someone! I have also gained a lot! More maturity! More people skills! More guts! More experience!…..
But, if I had to resume my 22-year, I would go that brief way: I have more or less succeed in my test to get into the adult life! I am not a A student yet at life school but I am improving more and more. I am perfectible! I have done a wonderful job in my work for this year! I made a lot of sacrifices to assist people after the 12-jan earthquake whether economically, morally or else! Not even one year yet since I got this position and I received award for showing competence above position requirements! That’s all my achievement is about for this year! I have procrastinated too much(in my relation with God, in choosing my new field of studies, in taking some paths). I have forgotten too often that not making the choice in the right moment is a choice itself and with the consequences!And my second sin is to waste too much my resources and opportunities! Imagine, for instance, that my number one sponsor is still waiting for a copy for my own book publication’s sake! I have a lot of luck but I am spoiling it!
I have also failed one of my greatest dreams: getting married at 22! I have however started pretty early in the love field to achieve my goal but I too often forget that I can’t play this game by myself! I can’t even postpone that dream for this year or the next! Uh! Minos one dream!
My resolutions for the coming year are then the following:
1- have discipline in everything
2-Know my own self
3-Build that self
4- reconcile with the others
Anything more to add? No! Just…. Thank you Jehovah for having spared my life from all those! Thank you for this new year! And may I use it to give you all love, glory and pride you deserve!
Bye bye to the 22-year old Annie, welcome to the almost 23-year old Alice!
