Over the course of the year, I have seen a many social media posts and heard much talk of change taking place in everyones lives. I’ve seen people who have lost loved ones, I’ve seen people who have been hurt, I’ve seen people who have been affected by mental health, and those who have expressed a feeling of, “What am I here for?” I’ve also seen people find new love, find new jobs, stop old habits, find new friends, encourage themselves to do better, and even encourage others. I’ve see the country do great thing, and battle on the basis of what should or shouldn’t be allowed. This year has been an eye opener to show a bigger lesson.
As the leaves fall in the autumn, as the birds chirp away in the spring filled air, as the waves crash on the sizzling hot sand, and as the stars hold their positions in the windy winter air, so does life continue to move without permission, giving everyone a little piece of its existence. Everything has a place, a time, and a season, and we are not exempt from said understanding. As life goes on, we never stop running the race. We never stop moving or pushing or excelling. We always learn something new and see somethings in a different. We grasp a certain perspective in the beginning of our lives and have a duty to ourselves to understand that perspective in it’s unwavering truth to self and it’s understanding of incorrect assumptions that lead to divisions.
Based of the teachings of life for 2019, I pose this rhetoric for all to contemplate, understand, and explore in their own lives: What changes has this year brought to you, to equip you for your next beginning? What teachings has life brought that need more time for mastery? What areas of life have you held yourself back from by blatantly choosing to accept the terms of uncomfortable circumstances? Lastly, will this finally be the year you decide to cooperate and flow in all the greatness you have been destined for?
These questions I present are not of condemnation or shame, but only of love, respect for the pure heart, and intentions of being an influence of consistency in change as a regular part of life. 2020 will not be the year of the stagnant mule. Raise up and claim what you felt you could never be, greatness.
