It is October everyone, Yey! 🙂 Happy new Month, good people. Time flies, 3 months to 2018. Khaaa! How the hell did we get here? I hope I am not the only one asking this? 🙂 For my sake, I hope not 😉
In 1997, I was between ages 5-10. It was at this age that I could really understand things (ok, not clearly, but I did!) I just started standard one then and well you know how it feels when you start school, you feel like you are growing up because you wake up in the morning and look forward to something exciting!
I could brag about it not so much though; my mom was a teacher at my school (still is and I am proud of her) I had to keep it cool! 🙂 You know, high grades…excellent manners… 😉
I started standard one in 1997, then in 2003 I was in standard seven…well then I figured that we start at some point and end at the other and then start again somewhere.
When a day starts it is obvious it will end and then a new day comes, then a new week starts and then it ends and then a new one is here…and then a new year begins and then it ends after 12 months! So everything begins and ends…and that’s how it is and that’s how it will always be!
In life, we go through different situations… as we live on we start some new friendships, we get an exciting new job…and they pay you handsomely and life is good! You build some new business, relationships and everything is just perfect and all is well!
But then, there is a season for everything in this life! Season of happiness, a season of sorrow, sadness, anger, laughter and season for everything!
And when the seasons of sadness and sorrow come to our life all over suddenly everything is turned upside down and nothing seems to be alright! The friendships and relationships that were so exciting at the beginning they now bring tears…they bring sorrow and sadness to us because the season is over!
That job you loved so much is over and you have nothing to look forward to when you go to bed at night because the new season has begun!
When all this begins, when the new season begins (the season that does not favor us) we lose hope! We tell ourselves how bad this is and how you don’t know how all this happened because it was all fine just yesterday!
Everything that you believed in, everything that you loved about your life disappeared and you just don’t know what to do!
You ask yourself a thousand questions of why did happen to you, why did it happen now and you ask yourself where you did go wrong and what did you do wrong and you have no answer to even a single question from all of this!
You try to figure out your options; like what should you do? Where you should start and who you should talk to about all this and to your surprise, you can’t find anyone and you think your only option is to give up!
You choose to give up on building new relationships, new friendships! You give up on finding a new job, you forget all the potentials, skills and experiences that you have on getting any new job of your professional if you really tried to look for one! You don’t want to start a new business because you are scared it is going to fail, again!
The change of season kicks you hard in the stomach; you even give up on yourself! You forget how good you are!
When this happens, I lose my cool. I cry myself to sleep every night. I Curse on everything until things get better! Until I get a hold of myself and start over again.
When you remember that your thoughts and actions determine your life, you get up and push forward even harder.
All of these are just seasons! Good or bad, summer or winter, it won’t last forever! If your life turned upside down and you don’t know what to do then tell yourself that the seasons changed a bit but soon enough your favorite season will come and all will be good!
If 2017 wasn’t your year if you didn’t achieve what you planned to then don’t give up on yourself and what you want…The three remaining months might make a difference if you try harder but if it doesn’t then 2018 is coming and if you keep your faith, efforts and focus then you will achieve even more!
1997 didn’t last that long…2017 is ending, it might not have been as good as we all wanted it to be but we had it and the most important thing is that we had our lessons and we should be grateful and learn from it so that 2018 will be as incredible as we hope it to be!

Just remember, if it starts somewhere then it must end somewhere! Stay positive, go for what you want, work hard, stay humble and be grateful always.
It gets better, keep pushing forward.
Until next time,
