the one promise you must keep
It seems that every New Year’s Eve I go through the routine of outlining my goals for the next year followed by a thorough and scrutinous review of the previous year’s goals and what I did and did not achieve. So much has happened in my world as well as the world around us. I am sure the same applies for you.
This year was filled with a lot of highs and just as many lows. And just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, I was right. A glimmer of light started to shine through and serendipitously things got better. It even got much better, better than I expected.
Through good and bad one thing remained constant for me; the fact that I refused to quit. I just wouldn’t give up and neither should you. Promise me and yourself that you will never never never ever give up. No matter how dim matters appear to be remember the darkest hour is just before dawn. No matter how hard you get knocked on your butt, remind yourself; it’s not what happens when you get knocked down, what matters is when you get back up, dust yourself off and get back into the fight.
The year is behind us now. Good or bad it is in the past. Forgive yourself for any short falls if there were any. Turn your gaze ahead and focus on what you will do right this year. And above all, never give up.
