9 things I learned in 2015

Standard

Reposting, as I got to remind myself of the awesome things 2015 taught me and what I believe we can get by reflecting on the positives of this year 2016

As always, Year-end is a great time to reflect on what you’ve achieved and what you’ve learned, mistakes you’ve made and goals you met and all.

Personally, this year, I became more of who I am meant to be. Not because I reached more goals, or achieved a new level of “success”. Those things happened, but they were by-products of me.

Have you opened your gift?

Sitting down, watching little clips of talent shows online, I couldn’t help but wonder how magnificent we all are. No matter what people say, we are all gifted uniquely in one thing or the other. Some people term someone “talented” only if he/she is either a dancer or a singe. Are these the only talents we could have? To teach, write, swim, or anything we do with much relaxed feeling is pure talent. I over heard few people along the street arguing over Messi and C. Ronaldo, who is more talented? To be honest, they both are. Our talents are gifts. Have you cared to open them? According to Rick Warren,

“an unopened gift is worthless.”

You’ve got to open up that gift(s) in you and get a hold of what’s in it. Though there are different kinds of gift, they all serve the same purpose; to be of service to people. Put that gift of yours to good use. You can sing, but you’re bed-ridden; you can dance but you’ve got the anxiety-depressed disorder, or stage freight. You think that you’re the only one that is or have experienced it? No you aren’t. The difference between a winner and a loser is just the decisions they made. Don’t just think, just do. That’s what I’ve come to realize. What we believe we are planning to do, Is what someone out there is working on. Instead of waiting for that perfect time to start, just do it.
Nonetheless, there two common problems why you may have left your gifts still lying closed.
You are Envious of other people’s gifts: this occurs when we compare our gifts with others and then become resentful or jealous.
You project your gifts wrongly: this occurs when we think it’s of no use to because we happen to think everyone else has that same gift.
What you waiting for? It’s a new year. Which means it’s a new you, a new resolution, new goals. Pick up that present and open it. Put it to good use this. Let’s illuminate the world with our gift no matter how or what it is. Happy New You.

You are a Gift

we put into giving.” ― Mother Teresa

As Christmas season approaches, which I believe is 5 days away, my thoughts went to the whole gift giving process. Gifts are quite individual, both those you buy for others and those you might want to receive. In a perfect gift buying scenario, when you think about buying gifts for the people you love, you think about what each person would most like to receive. You probably choose different gifts for each of those special people based on what you know they most like and you get a lot of pleasure out of making that
Choice.
