Reflections, Resolutions, and Revolutions

This year has passed exceptionally fast and I wondered where has the time gone. I flipped with apprehension through my calender, my memory and to see any vivid achievements. The one constant thing dominating this year is 'change'. Change often requires effort for initiating, executing and settling through the process of change with a heart that knows no rest, guilt and/or regret. It takes a lot for a heart to remain strong and a mind to be focused. Constant moving and rushing with little time to absorb and think, it may seem aimless at times, frustrating at others, but demanding and rewarding for sure. I am thankful for all the good things that have happened to me in that year. These tough days and problems that I am most thankful for, often times these very challenges that weaken me, strengthen me.

Exactly how this universe operates, my resolutions build on from the past, filling gaps, stretching limits, pushing edges and trusting that the 'puzzle pieces will fit'. However, our weaknesses must be acknowledged in ordered to be assessed. My resolution for the coming year is Discipline, and this should enable me to create a revolution to abandon all that has disabled me from living freely.
