Revelations and Coming to terms

13 Jan

***Nervously wrings hands and walks into 19th Street, HighlandBlue, slowly and unsure*** This is my first time of writing for people to read (I am used to saving my writings, always unfinished), so please pardon me if I ramble. Thanks Efe for indulging me.

I’M THANKFUL

For life, good health, amazing friends, family and most importantly, GOD, I’m thankful! This year alone, I escaped 3 near fatal accidents, twice unscathed, once with mere bruises.

I achieved an education milestone with excellent results, I am very thankful even though I’m not quite pleased with the spot I’m on at the moment. I miss school and can’t wait to get back.

REVELATION

What could possibly be the highest point of my 2011 was spending a 2-month vacation in company of my Dad and Brother. I don’t think I’ve ever spent a month at a go with my Dad (my parents are separated) and I learnt about this brother, Deji and two other siblings when I was 13.

We first met in April, at the Airport when my Dad was going on a trip to New York. I wondered why he chose to introduce us to each other in such manner and time but I didn’t ask, I was too happy to have finally met them. Daddy came back in August and suggested that Deji and I took a vacation with him, I dropped everything and jumped at it and we left for Calabar 2 days after he suggested it. It was a really interesting and enlightening vacation. In that time, I found out that I was just 3 months older than Deji, Dad and I really bonded as we discovered that we are alike in so many ways. I miss them both now and wish we could have a repeat.

COMING TO TERMS
I’m used to just living life and never bothering about such things as character and my place in life. This year, I have been able to look at my life and outline the things that have put my life on a drag.

I love God sincerely, but I fail Him too often, I’ve been reading less of the Bible, just gliding through life without spiritually sheathing myself and steady taking advantage of God’s love and mercy. I set standards that I know God expects of me and disappointed even myself by falling short.

I came to terms with the fact that I’m too laid back, this most times tended towards laziness. I settled for far less than I deserved, I second-guessed myself too much, under-utilized my strength and mind so much that I pushed myself into being just average.

I know I can be better and I’ve just now started picking myself up, trying to live better and working on a better relationship with God.

TWITTER & BLOGS

This year, I really got into the groove of Twitter 😀 and I have had the pleasure of ‘meeting’ truly amazing people whose brilliant insight, humor and knowledge, I have come to appreciate. I also came across several blogs with too many beautiful minds that birthed posts so amazing they laced my eyes with tears.

😀
Shalla to Efe, Nugwa, Gbemisoke, Mallam Sawyerr, Jibola, 0Toxic, Jibola and many others whose tweets, writing/blogposts have brought so much smile unto my face and caused me to critically evaluate my life.

Here’s to a beautiful 2013, where I hope to write a review of how better in life and closer to God I got.
