Gratitude

When I begin to think about what I have or had been through which in comparison to others is nothing, then I begin to think of πŸ€” what would have been if I said the truth, If I wasn’t scared 😟, If I was bold enough, If I was more confident, If I had run and looked for help. If ….. if…. if …. only if…

Yesterday the 31.12.2019 I was thinking out loud and saying that I was grateful for everything last year had brought me and was going to make sure I go in harder next year, which practically starts today. My friend got a little upset that the ‘New year Resolution’ thing is being hyped. He said that there is nothing like a new year but just a new day. I agree with him but not totally.

I see a new year not only as a new day but also a new start. This goes for the decision I will be making, Goals to be attained, bad habits to be broken, to be more focused and committed.

A new year, Yes, could be just another new day, but for me it is the mental feeling I get from it. The feeling that motivates me, encourages my soul and lits the fire that I could be a better me this new year. Oh yes in the middle of the year it may not go as planned but we will keep moving.

The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate

Whenever I look πŸ‘€ back, I know now for sure that whatever happens in your life is your destiny and was predestined to be so.

Despite the challenges I am facing , I always want to be happy and positive even though some could be so hard. But the point is to be grateful and thankful for all you have.

2019 taught me a whole lot of things and gave me a new Dimension in life and also to see things from a different perspective.

Some things are so little we forget to take it into consideration. Little things they are, but are the biggest things. The importance of Gratitude πŸ™ , are things like the air we breathe in, the bed we sleep in, food, a roof over our heads, love, happiness, being healthy and happy.

These things fill me in and make me glow from the inside because I am grateful to have these things.

Happiness is the utmost blessing a man can get if he has it. When you realize it the Earth 🌏 would move her best side to you.

How about you? What are you grateful for? Do you believe in New year Resolution? Do you think it is being hyped? Drop in the comment box below on how happy or the experiences you have had.

Happy New year and a wonderful month!

  1. Happy new year to you. Lovely write up
    Firstlly, I am most grateful for life, for good health, sound mind, friendships, family, for what I have achieved and for those I look forward to achieve.

    Secondly, I dont think the new is overhyped. Yes, it is just like every other day. However it serves as a reminder or let’s say a benchmark that reminds you of your set goals over a period of time ( if you have achieved it/ them or not)
    Personally, it’s an Avenue to ponder and retrospect about past events with me or around me and how best to move forward and be successful.
    Wishing you an amazing and successful year ahead. Cheers to more wins

    1. Exactly what I thought and debated on. This life is filled up with dramas and if it is a new year we get to set things on track then yes. I wish you a lovely new year dear thank you.

      1. I see the new year as another opportunity to start a new beginning just as we do everyday, every week, every months , and every birthdays. Not necessary you follow the general public counts, that day you set to take a step to start a new thing, a new live is your new year. God bless us all in our new steps, and the ones we’re hoping to take.

  2. Yeah Indeed I agree it’s just a normal day and it’s being hyped and all but at the sametime it’s also motivates and help to set a goal to be accomplished within a particular duration.. The drives it gives it intoxicating if properly channel into meaningful things.. so yes I love the idea of celebrating New year and treating it so special!

  4. That’s the Spirit gurl. The New Year isn’t overhyped but i think people usually make unachievable goals. The Resolutions in my opinion are achievable goals which we arrive by getting outta our Comfort zones. I pray the spirit of Gratitude never fades in our lives oh… Even the Gratitude towards one another.

    Love your posts. πŸ™‚

  5. Absolutely, the new year resolution is an important thing anyone who aspires to be better, to be great, to improve & gain momentum in life needs to do.
    It’s not a hyped stuff but sometimes the way some people do it makes it loose weight..
    For me, is good when you define the year, clearly spell out what your goals, dreams, inspirations & focus will be for that year, then work towards it with every sense of seriousness & determination.

    2020 is so promising & welcoming, it will be a glorious year for us all.
    Happy new year cooursemate of life.

    1. You know Arinze I did an experiment which in 2018 I clearly spelt out goals and at the end of the year, I ticked 98% of it. Then in 2019, I did not do it. And I would say it was more of a comfort zone just like my friend @rhody wrote. I was not so motivated. I also do not think it’s hyped because it all comes down to the individuals.
      Thank you and I wish you also a glorious 2020.

  6. True, life is short, let’s worry less. New year resolution is always been hyped until the goal is achieved. 2020 will be a great year for us all I pray.

  7. Happy New Year to everybody!
    Thank you Princess for your sincere and motivating post!
    I personally like a lot the New Year:)))
    Though I do not understand much the meaning of this term “New Year Resolutions”. I think people can set new goals even everyday, just as soon as they realize that they need to achieve or change something in their lives. The same matters for the deadlines for achievement of your goals.
    In any case, I wish everyone to achieve your goals in the New Year and that your achievements bring you happiness!:)

  10. Nice post. The essence of time is so that we can check our lives, our achievements and all. Yeah, u can do that daily, monthly, or annually. No wonder your friend chose a new day over a new year. He is correct, but there will come a time when we will bring all our daily account together to measure our current position.
    The new year resolution thing, we do that consciously and unconsciously when we set targets and goals for ourselves or some habits we want to do away with. I don’t follow the thought that it is hyped. If we set our minds on something to achieve, and work towards seeing it through, we will have more friendly environment to leave in.
    The piece gratitude is a wonderful piece to start the new year.

  11. 😘Happy new year Princess. I am grateful for Life, for family, for good health ,for friendsπŸ€—. Grateful for opportunity to be better.
    Well, I think the “New Year Resolution” isn’t actually over hyped because it helps in putting us in check about our plans ahead and it actually motivates some people (those who need a little push here and there).
    Wishing you a great year ahead πŸ’ͺ
