I can only start my life anew and leave the broken pieces I cannot pick.
2016 has been a round of straightforward and tactless year for me. I failed to manage a social media account too well which left me being the talk of the town. My endless whims and caprices were published in public – the worse of all.
A bold mindset would not think twice of expressing its opinions. That was me this year. What the truth is, it must be exposed. However, I learned my lessons. Relationships became more complicated. I even earned a number of gossipers (even in Law school!). That, I couldn’t take for granted. We have a reputation to maintain for a good name is better than silver or gold (Proverbs 22:1).
In few hours, 2017 is here!!! I already made up my mind to start all over, again, despite some serious mistakes. Besides, if I failed, that doesn’t mean I’m a failure. It does mean I have to start, again, and work harder. And I need to be reminded not to live by the world’s standards but by God’s and the complete renewing of my mind, body, heart, and soul (Romans 12:2).
So, goodbye, then, 2016, and hello, 2017!
