New Year, New Me!!! Well isn’t that just the most pretentious thing you ever heard? Not really? Well to me it is. I’ve always found New Years day to be the funniest event of the year. It’s as if 75% of the World has gone bonkers. Why I say so, well I’d tell you why.
For an entire 24 hours or more depending on the concentration of the Inadequacy Hormone in their systems. It’s as if most of the world’s population wished upon a giant ball of gas somewhere to be comedians for an entire day or more *Again refer to the Imaginary blood analysis for the concentration of Inadequacy Hormone*
It’s on New Year’s Day, you see people who haven’t been to church in over 363 days, trooping into Churches just to Crossover into the New Year. Albeit with painted faces (make up and other forms of Decore), Clothes and Stickers that indicate their next destination after the service is the nearest club.
Let’s not forget the fact that people would sit down for hours, writing tons of Inspirational Gibberish that they hope to accomplish that year. Gibberish in the sense that 89.9% is forgotten by the following week, the remaining 10.1% disappearing to reconvene on the 31st of December as Regrets/Unaccomplished Delusions of Grandeur.
It’s a day of Various Untold Truths and the telling of Unnecessary Lies, but heck who am i to Judge? I’m not going to discuss about Resolutions (Check out Last Year’s Piece for my take on Resolutions). There’s so much I want to say but I won’t #UntoldTruths. Not because I can’t, but because I shouldn’t *Not Yet Anyway*
I’d say this tho, 2013 was a fun year for me. I achieved almost all my goals for the year *Except my Weight loss Goal*. I lost people this year & as much as it hurts me to say, it was all for the best. I did however meet some truly gifted people (Who I’d appreciate in my next post). 2013 was my year of Fulfilling Purpose & I can boldly say I really couldn’t have done it without God.
As is my Tradition, I have Themed 2014, My Year of Resplendent Glory. I live 2014 in the full consciousness of Matthew 5:14-16. I trust it’d be an awesome year indeed, look forward to spending it with you all. I love you all and I say Happy New Year to all of you. Have a Blessed 2014!!!
