I had promised Lady Cee that I’d try out this challenge, which she had on her blog. That’s how I procrastinated until now 🙈 But if you think about it, what better time to write this post than the 11th day of the 11th month 😁
Crossing over from 2017 to 2018 had its fears, challenges, hopes and dreams. I had my plans for the year as usual, but I had so many uncertainties. How was I gonna finish my project on time when I was still stuck in a literature review? How was I gonna celebrate my quarter of a century birthday? Was I gonna get the MSC Distinction I so desired? Oh yeah, I still had that dream of getting married at 25 😂😂😂
Many questions filled my mind as I crossed over. But one thing was sure, the God who brought me into the year was gonna see me through it all. I keep this journal where I write out my fears to God and days or weeks later, I return with the answer to each fear. He is simply amazing!
As I review the year and the plans I made, I can say I sure finished that dissertation and had the distinctions I set out for. God also gave me an amazing internship, amazing friends, provision of every tinee tiny need. I can’t say enough of all that God did for me this year. My name, ‘God’s Grace,’ kinda sums it up. Still not married at 25 😂 but I ain’t worried about that. The year 2018 has been super eventful! Lots of highs and lows, but God remained constant.
Glad I wrote this because it brings to mind all the beautiful things that happened to me this year. And hey. I have my grad in a couple of weeks. Still looking for that perfect dress. Hehe.
So how about you? Have you started reviewing the past year? How are you preparing for the new year? Can you visualize it? No matter how messed up the year seems, look closely, you’d find reasons to be grateful.
Have a beautiful week ahead!
