Yo!! It’s Teebabsy
Happy holidays to you all from the Irish Sugar family!!!
So 2014 Is ending in a few hours and as I write this now, I realize that it passed by so fast; almost like a Chariot with a million horses. But as this year ends, I only thought to share with y’all the lessons it taught me.
I realized that in life, we are always running around, always rushed or always late. I guess that’s why they call it the human race, but that sometimes it slows down just enough for all the pieces to fall down into place and fate works it’s magic and you’re connected, every once in a while in all the randomness, something unexpected happens and pushes us all forward and the truth is what I’m starting to think and feel is that maybe the human race isn’t a race at all. I simply figured that we don’t know everything, only God in his awesomeness, truly does. So we all need to chill out and let him figure it out for us!!
I realized that I’m not perfect or in control as much as I loved to think I was. I’ve made mistakes, I make mistakes and I’d continue to make mistakes. This is only part of the journey to self discovery and that it doesn’t make me less of a decent person. I’m perfectly imperfect and I don’t have to listen or live up to the expectations of anyone. I’m gonna do me and rock at it.
I learnt that all forms of relationships are hard work; be it friendship or that between lovers. It’s give and take, a kind of two way street or I’d say a scale and there’s need to maintain the balance. We’d be deluding ourselves to think that we wouldn’t get hurt in life but I figured we have a say with who hurts us and they definitely will, but the beauty of it all is forgiveness. No one’s perfect you know!!!
This year taught me that you’d never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory. Life is a grand song and knowing this only comes from loosing yourself in the music. So live it up, laugh, dance, take many pictures cuz those treasured moments pass by in a whisper and I hope our hearts would always be open and ready to catch them when they happen.
Sometimes it feels like there are so many things in this world that we can’t control; quakes, floods, death, sickness or loss but we need to remember things that we can control like second chances or fresh starts because the one thing that turns the world from a lonely place to a beautiful place is love; love in any of its forms. I’ve realized it’s the most beautiful thing of all to realize a person cares irrespective of all your ‘crazy’ or flaws!! It’s truly magical!!
I learnt that no one should be punished for the mistakes of another. We all should let go of the past and embrace the future.
Carpe diem ie seize the day is another lesson from 2014. I figured that time waits for no one and I have to live every day to it’s fullest. Try new things, see new places & meet new people. We just have to step out of our comfort Zone before we can catch the wave that’d change our lives forever.
I figured that life could be unfair sometimes. It doesn’t always pan out how we plan or hope. But it’s only so that we are truly grateful for what and those we have. The only thing we need say to ourselves is “Courage, dear heart” & then keep living.
I discovered the importance of friendship. Friends are truly God sent; they love, laugh,cry, hold & support you even when they know parts of you are missing. I’m truly thankful for the amazing ones I have.
Family is the most important in this world. Love them, care for them and make them happy; they won’t always be around!!
I learnt to always do what I love and love doing it!!! The question we should ask ourselves isn’t “what If it doesn’t work out??”but rather, “what if it does??”
Finally, I realize that as we count down to the end of this year, even in all the festivity, the partying and the champagne opening, we need to pause and reflect on the year; ask ourselves what we should have done differently, what we shouldn’t have done, who we should have loved more, if we apologized when we were wrong or how many people we hurt & then make that undying effort to be better this coming year; it’s only going to take one step at a time!!
Happy New Year Beautiful People!!!
With Sugary Love….
