Age is natural, to age is inevitable. A few days ago, I grew numerically older. That number can be significant in the science of things. Still it can be insignificant if I care less about what the number all means. Whoever said that by a certain age, we should all acquire a certain amount of amenities, relationships, achievements, and the rest?
Society dictates a calendar it seems, and if we are not careful, once the calendar of our personal existence gets filled, we may fall into a state of sheer depression. I think HECK NO! I am in no way, shape or form going to subscribe to this concept. So, I enjoy the fact that I am one year older, but acknowledge that I have been getting older by the seconds. The every breath that we take points us one second closer to our final early breath. This fact is undeniable.
On that premise, I choose to enjoy these moments of my life. Life is not easy at all, but oh it can be fun. Thus, I am commiting to making this new year a blessed and holy one. One based on faith, as being projected and promoted by the Holy Father as the Year of Faith (Oct 11th 2012 – some time in 2013). I am getting excited about this entire prospect.
In many ways, I have begun a new year. A new post at work, which has begun to demand a new learning curve from me. One where professionalism requires a hike, where negotiation skills must become alive, where confidence must ride high above naysayers, and where peace of mind will dictate the proper usage of wisdom from on-high. My daily practice among other things, is to pray Wisdom chapter 9 daily. I tell you, discernment is going to be key here.
Happy Birthday to me. Happy new year to me. Happy life with every Breath to me. Happy Happy. Let God arise above all my plans, concerns, insecurities, confusions, frustrations, desires, longing, hopes, dreams, and aspirations.
Wish me well. How do you view Birthdays?
God bless you today and always.
