Today is the first day of the year.
I wasn’t really looking forward to saying goodbye to 2012. For one, it has been an amazing year for me. It may be one of the best years I’ve had in my 28 years of colorful existence.
I don’t know what 2013 has in store. I don’t know if it’s going to be a good year, or if this will be a let down. I do hope that, even if it won’t be as great as 2012, it will still be a year that celebrates what life and the world should be about.
I have many things planned for 2013, big ones, actually.
I’m not a person who believes in new year’s resolutions. I’m more of the goal-setting type. This is why I don’t resolve to be anything or do anything this year. What I have is a set of goals that I pray I would meet before the year ends.
As a look back, I made a couple of goals last year that I was not able to meet. However, the more important ones I set were achieved, thanks to God.
For this year, I am going to set new goals and plans, higher and bigger ones. I hope and pray God guides me in making the right decisions, so I can meet the things I plan to meet.
I don’t really know what to ask for from God this year. I haven’t asked him for something big, lately, and I plan to keep it that way. All I really want for myself is to be healthy. All I pray for is that God will keep me away from any sickness. I will not ask for money, a great career, a happy life, a nice house, a car, etc.
All I need is health. As long as I’m healthy, I know that God will help me in reaching for greater things. Money and career is something that I have to work on, not something I ask from God. If he makes me healthy, I can work, have a career and make money. A happy life really depends on how I see things, also not something I also not something to ask from God.
So, Lord, please grant my only prayer of being healthy all the time. Please keep me away from sickness, of any form. Please help me keep away from the massive headaches that have been attacking me all the time. Please hold me in your arms, so that no harm will come my way. That’s the only thing I want for myself. For my family and loved ones, all I ask is to give them the things that make them happy, even if those things are at my expense.
Hello, 2013. For now, i really have no idea just what you’re up to. However, if you’re up to some mischief, let me in on it, and let’s be mischievous together.
