you're reading...


tooooIrrespective of when you read this article, I wish you a happy and prosperous new year. This is actually the time in a year people make a long list of things they either want to start or stop, referring to them as New Year’s resolutions. But how many of them actually keep to these resolutions is the question? Because it is actually a catastrophic that you prepared a list for shopping but at the end of the day all of the stuff you purchased was never on the list.
Of a truth, Year will always come and go but why must every New Year be like other years? Why must you live this year as you had lived other years? Maybe to you, it’s just 7 days that makes one week, 4 weeks that makes one month and 12 months that makes one year: but honestly speaking, you are no longer that same you five {5} years ago, because it is just 365 days that makes a year and as each day unfolds children should become adults, sons, fathers; daughters, mothers, so every day is an opportunity to change, addition of little difference to our lives, society and the world.
Every year, months, weeks begins with a day, it is the opening of another page of our lives. A new page being an opportunity for us to live our lives in different ways. Yesterday is gone with everything we did, so you cannot live it again because you are in today but why should you live today like yesterday and expect different or better result. There are no two ways about it, life cannot be better than how you are living it and what is happening to you is not how bad things could be but that you are still wearing that same old shoe, still spending instead of investing, still lazy when you should be working hard. The summary of our lives are what we say and what we do, so it is weird to wait for the beginning of another year to make a New Year’s resolution before we change. Change, it is said to be the only permanent thing on earth and it is one thing we should come to terms with because any resolution is what gives birth to change. Change is what every man, woman, boy and girl needs and there is no doubt about that but instead of changing, every man is advocating, preaching and foreseeing change yet he himself is not any difference from who he was. Although I don’t believe that a man can change because he is either like a snail; always slow, or a lion; always fierce but I believe he can change his mind-set, belief and attitude, which is what makes him a new man, not another man.
A bus, taxi or flight will always wait for you or till its departure time but change doesn’t wait for a new year to happen, it is happening as I speak and it is either you are progressing or deteriorating. Therefore seeing that there is a better you, place, a better day, week, month and year let us all embrace change and see the difference it makes because, it’s never too late to change, seeing today is the right day and now is the right time to work, start, invest, move, pray, plant, plan and go to school. So why wait for 365 or 366 days to make a decision in the name of a New Year’s resolution, when you can decide in one day and that is today. We need a change, today and now because change is not just about the movement we make or the speed we need but about the difference we make in our lives, society and the world at large. HAVE A BLISSFUL YEAR!

There is so much to tell about me but unfortunately i know just little about myself because everyday i keep discovering who i am and who i am not hence i wake up in the morning ready to be who ever i am.



  1. They say change is the only permanent thing man knows. Your post encourages finding out who we are, and that is always an amazing journey.
