Every year people are looking forward to closing the door on the old year, and welcoming a new one in. They want to erase the disappointments and sorrows that occurred in the previous year, and look forward to the victories of the new year.
That's a fine sentiment to have, but more often than not it isn't reality. There are many sorrows and disappointments we will experience in life. There are issues we will have to overcome that we wished never happened to us. Unfortunately, we cannot control every aspect of life. Those challenges, failings, setbacks, disappointments, and heartaches molded you into the person you are today; and they were more than likely the catalyst for greater change in your life.
Those situations that did not send you completely over the edge were the same issues that God Almighty used to strengthen you. Take time this year to reflect on the ways you've grown through the challenges of the past, and how you handled yourself in the midst of adversity.
Rather than focusing on what you don't want to happen, think positive thoughts, and determine to have a faith mentality when issues do arise. Simply put...determine to be the best that you can be at all times. No one can ask anything more than that.
The brand new me? I've learned to love myself for who I am, the good with the bad. Yet, I've also learned from my husband that all I need to do, is be the best me that I can be, every moment that I'm blessed with.
So, this year the brand new me, will be the same old me, being the best me that I can be.
