1.It’s okay not to have a clear vision about what my life will look like 5 years from now.
I’m learning to take a day at a time and commit to giving 💯 to what is before me right now. I will arrive where I need to to be when I need to be there.
2.I may not see the whole harvest right now but that doesn’t mean I should give up planting.
Be it in my education or blog, the rewards of my work may not be seen yet, but I should keep working on a good foundation and giving my best. The rewards will come.
3.Don’t be too quick to call someone your friend. Let them show you who they really are.
My mum has always told me,”Guthekio ti kwendwo” which when loosely translated means that just because they laugh with you it doesn’t mean they love you. This year has really opened my eyes to people I thought were my friends and saw them for who they really are. And it has helped me see that just because you laugh and make fun with someone, doesn’t mean they are true friends.
4. I have done and will do others wrong too.
Have bad things ever happened to you that you wonder if it’s karma catching up with you? This year when several people did hurtful things to me, I started to think about all the things I did them wrong and wondered if it was revenge time😂. I really regretted it and I’m working on doing better.
5.It’s okay not to be always right.
Pride and insecurity says I have to be always right but humility calls me to admit it when I’ve been wrong. Foolishness will keep you stuck in one place when you believe you are always right.
6.Goals aren’t achieved by making a wish list and dreaming about it. Make a schedule and commit!
I realized this a few weeks ago. It’s easy to dream but to actually commit, it’s the bigger challenge but one that will get you where you wanna be. I’m currently practicing this with my new workout schedule and can’t wait to see the results!
7.The small steps add up to get you through the extra mile.
When you are working on a goal on the daily, it’s hard to see if there’s any change happening. But I have learnt to be really intentional and patient ’cause with time, so much change will have happened.
8.My relationship with God shouldn’t be based on fear but love.
I used to worry if God would be mad at me or I would lose my place in His kingdom if I did not spend enough quite time with Him, such that QT became more of a chore than special time with my Father. But now I understand that God’s love is eternal and not dependent on my actions. I should spend time with Him because I love Him and want to Know Him more.
9.Inasmuch as others do you wrong, love them anyway
Sure, it’s easier said than done. But I learnt that carrying hate is poisonous not only to my heart but also my mind. So often, those that do us wrong operate from hurt or some sort of brokenness. So instead of working on revenge, wish them the best. In fact, pray for them. Pray for their healing and for good things to happen to them. You’ll notice how that melts your hate/ hurt away.
10.God loves each one of His children even in our sinfulness.
Have you ever wondered why God would still bless someone or even you, even when their life isn’t the most Christ-like?
It’s so easy to judge others but I have learnt it’s not my duty to judge but to love. In His wisdom and love, God keeps taking care of us. This isn’t an excuse not to pursue righteousness but a reminder of God’s unchangeable nature; He is love.
That’s all for today. What life lesson have you learnt lately? Kindly share with me in the comments 😃.
Stay blessed 💕.
