As I looked back at what had happened to me thus far – be it the good and the not so good lessons that life had taught me, I am thankful for having pulled through each of those wonderful lesson. The good news is I have found my balance again. Gone are those dark and gloomy days that once hanged over me and dominated my world. .
As a matter of fact, I had never expected, growing up could sometimes be so painful. Especially when it involves handling our emotions and the mental state of our mind.
Although my stormy days and those long sighs are over, I will keep reminding myself; “What a great year 2010 was for me for learning and growing up?” “Yes,” even though I was on the radar. My movements were tracked. And all that I spoke in my room, house and even inside my car was eavesdropped.
Well, I am not angry. In fact, I am more than being thankful to have seen such dirty and underhanded tactics applied by some very nasty and ugly people.And as if that was not enough, they continued engaging me in a psychological warfare built on hatred, jealousy, confusion and betrayal.
On a brighter note, I had just added another year to my life. I wish to take this opportunity to thank all the people who remembered to send me cards, emails, gifts, good wishes and prayers. “Mama, the little boy is a grown up now. I know you are happy for me. Thank You for shaping me into a better person.” .
To my two siblings and all my loved ones, “Thanks for the advice and for supporting me in whatever I do.” Besides, I wish to take this opportunity to record my sincere appreciation to those who had supported and stood firmly behind me in my ups and downs in the past year.
As I counted my blessings, I reckon it is what we choose to see in the day that really matters. I firmly believe a life lived in love makes so much difference. Having walked through the valleys of darkness. despair, betrayal, injustice and insecurity, I am convinced The Lord is my victory and I choose to be grateful and every day is now a celebration. !!!
