Some of our life’s most unexpected moments are the ones most memorable, yet I spend a lot of time making plans for what’s next. As we approach the ending of 2016, everyone is brimming with anticipation of what’s to come. I’ve never been one to make new year resolutions, but I’m absolutely elated at the thought of starting a new chapter.
2016 was a year for the history books, great achievements and powerful moments for black women nationwide, as well as great sorrows like the #BalckLivesMatter hashtag and the events leading up to Brexit worldwide.
Personally, 2016 was a year of lessons for me. Most important of them all is to accept things that I cannot change. I’m a “tincy” bit stubborn and impatient. I’ve become so accustomed to living in a world where “Sherece gets what she wants, always” that anything other than this is almost unbearable.
This isn’t to say that I’m spoilt, but rather I’ve just grown super accustomed to planning everything and controlling the outcome of most situations. It’s not very easy for me to sit back and just let things happen. Something so very natural, yet it feels so inorganic for me.
Everyone’s life has its built-in clock. The way things are supposed to happen for them, the when and with who. If you spend your time consumed with trying to get things to happen a specific way all the time, you often get hung up and stuck in one particular moment, stopping your life clock from moving forward and getting you to a better solution or resolution. I know I sound like Philosophical Barbie here…..lol but I’m trying my best to describe my personal experiences for 2016.
We all have to keep working hard for all the things we want to accomplish and achieve. If you hit some rough patches along the way, dust yourself off, walk away and revisit it later. It will work out. That’s my quote for 2016 “It will work out.”
I don’t believe in bad luck or being jinxed or silly things like these. I do believe we get back from the universe what we put out there, and I believe in the power of positivity and prayer. Things will work out for a better outcome if you loosen the reins, relax and allow them to happen naturally
Wishing all my readers, followers, friends, family and loved ones a truly fantastic start to 2017. xoxoSB
