It’s still 3 months until the year 2017 ends and I am already EXHAUSTED! For starters, the year did not even remotely go the way I had it panned in my mind. The puppy is nowhere in sight, TRAVELLING?!! What’s that!…And ooohhh yeah those abs are still safely hidden beneath the fat layer called pizza, the 60 books challenge is long forgotten and the list goes on. In fact, I think God chose this particular year to slam all of those things on my face which I dreaded the most and I’m still red from the sting. Sitting in a rollercoaster, I have simply tumbled from one month to the other, only wishing for the ride to either stop or get better!
I had some very important decisions to be taken…Okay let’s not kid…some decisions were taken for me and the rest…well yeah I can safely say I did. From the job I couldn’t stand to some major health setbacks, this year had it all. I realised my immunity is weaker than I thought and my will…stronger. The health issue is what gave me a new perspective or I’d say tweaked the old one a bit. It was not only my health that shook me up, but that of a relative whose life turned upside down in a matter of a few days. We say it all the time that life is too short, but I’m not sure we really understand it or even mean it. We don’t really know how short life really is until one morning you suddenly can’t do the things that were basic to you until the night before.
So while I’m still figuring out the next best thing for me, I’m not sure what the next 3 months will have in store before the year finally ends.
Whatever it may be, I’ve put on my stilettos, poured myself some nice cold sangria and I think I’m good to go! 🙂
