I find that poetry is in motion whenever I go to the beach. I see my struggles represented in the manner nature shows herself to me. The high tides and low tides represent moments of turmoil and moments of serenity. The waves and the still waters represent the roller coaster-topsy turvy moments of my life. The view on the horizon represents the hope of a brighter tomorrow.
Think of this moment as if you were restructuring a business that’s special to you. In order to properly restructure, you have to audit and review what’s been done to know where to go and how to go about your new whereabouts. But for right now, let’s just reflect and rest.
You may not have achieved some of your goals as yet because you have other assignments to complete first. It could also be that you’re lazy or not motivated enough – don’t get it twisted. However, there’s a reason. The onus is on you to perhaps revist your execution plan or even change the goal all together. Does your life’s trajectory lead to this particular goal? Does it synch? Does it add up? Think on these things. Cause, sometimes, we craft our goals and objectives out of jealousy and “badmine/badmind”. And, if we do that, failure is the only end in sight
The simpler and more clear cut your approach to achieving goals is, the easier it will be – in theroy – to execute and attain. All I’m saying is that you must have your game-plan; your blue-print; your sketch. With those outlines make sure you also have some back-up.
We’ve seemed to fall into the trap of the acceptance of an abrupt end. There’s no opportunity to gather ourselves or the crumbs from the bread of the previous year to make something else in the new year.
As we start 2020, let us not focus on the negatives that slowed our progress. Let us, instead, focus on how we use trauma to push us into greater dealings.
May this new year find you or direct you in and towards greatness. May this new year see us conwuering fears, getting over hurdles and brushing that dirt off.
Let us not become victims of our hurt. Let us, instead, be triumphant.
Happy New Year.
