Bye 2012, hi 2013...

It's a new year again yey! 2013 is here with new possibilities, new opportunities and new promises. Many have written goals and how they want to accomplish them. Many have also written their resolutions for the New Year which I pray they stick to. 
I sense some guys' resolution is to get married because two guys who wanted more than friendship and one who said outright that he wanted marriage are back again after we had settled for friendship and nothing more. I pray they find their dream women. 

Anyway, looking at 2012 in retrospect, I have a lot to be thankful for:
 
First of all, I give thanks to God almighty for keeping me, my family, my friends, and my loved ones alive to see this New Year. It is impossible for me to list the endless marvellous things God did in my life in 2012, so I would just say "Thank you God for everything".
 
I worked successfully with people whom others were afraid of and I have built cordial relationships with them. 

I have learnt to see the positive side of every situation and the best in people.

I am more in control of my emotions and don't let the unnecessary get to me.

I am more self-aware and more certain about what I want from life. 

I am more decisive, more confident and more me. 

Lastly, I have learnt that too much TV is dangerous. 
It could kill you! Well not literally, but it could kill your dreams; because you would keep postponing and pushing important stuff aside till something important passes you by; and to me, a man without dreams is dead. I was a victim last year especially between October and December (though nothing important that I know of passed me by). I postponed a lot because I wanted to watch TV and my favourite series. 

I would plan my Saturday in way that I would achieve at least two important things at the end of the day but my love for TV wouldn't let me (It crept in like a drug addiction). Once there was power supply, I would get tempted just to check what was going on TV and that was all it took to get me glued to it till I got tired and bored. It could be a DVD, a sitcom, musicals, a Yoruba film, whatever, as long as it was coming from that well-shaped ultra-slim electronic device.
As if in agreement to what I was experiencing, 'children's exposure to television' was part of AIT news yesterday, how it affects the children and when parents should draw the line.

That menace aside, I would say in summary that 2012 helped in molding my personality and I can proudly say I have grown. 

My resolution this year is same as my bestie's-to be more focused, but mine is with respect to my lust for TV...my plans first, TV next. I have started and hope to continue in the same vein. Wish me luck friends.

I know you all have something or many things to be thankful for. Let us begin the new year with a heart of gratitude no matter what we had been through in 2012 and with a positive outlook at 2013. Let us do all we can to get the best out of 2013 with God beside us. It is your life friends, own it and enjoy it!
I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR full of the best things life has to offer!
