I can’t believe the first month of 2016 is almost over – before we know it, we’ll be wishing each other happy new year again.
Have you ever sat down and reflected on the kind of person you were back in the day… And look at the person you are now????
Well I’ve spent the better part of January doing that – and it’s honestly so amazing to see how much I’ve
changed grown!!! Some of the things that got me worried back in the day seem so small now, and some things I hoped and wished for came to pass.
A lot of times we don’t realise that what we once were is not who we are now… It takes a lot of strength to make (positive) changes in your life. It also takes a lot of courage to admit our mistakes and learn from them.
I’ve been listening to Lukas Graham’s song titled ‘7 years’, listen here … I may not have had a tough time growing up as insinuated in the song but my favourite line is
“I only see my goals, I don’t believe in failure. ‘Cause I know the smallest voices, they make it major”
“Don’t struggle to get what you want, but modify your wanting – Buddhist proverb”
I once was an angry person
Every emotion, another burden
I once was a sad person
Masking my face with fake smiles
I once was a timid person
Ever shy, no confidence
I was predestined to be at that time
What I am no more
To be at a certain place
At the exact time
Doing a specific thing
I once was a different person
