Another year older… Another Year Wiser

Hello people! Hope you’ve had a great week, just like I did. The title of today’s post was gotten from the theme song of one of the many cartoons I saw as a teenager- Rugrats All Grown Up. My birthday is in a couple of hours, but unlike the usual wish list or thankful list, I would like to share a couple of things I have learnt in my little over two decades of life on God’s green Earth. They have helped me to stay grounded and I hope you can also learn a thing or two. In no particular order of importance, here are the lessons…

#1     God is love! The world tries to feed us all sorts of distorted versions of what love is. The only way to truly know love is to know God.

#2     Ko le to yen! A lot of times, I take things too seriously, but I’m learning to kick back, relax and enjoy life and not stress out so much.

#3     Have fun! Yes lots of fun! With friends, with family, with yourself. There’s a child in every one of us and yes, it’s okay to let him/her come out and play every now and then.

#4     Family is important!

#5     Friends are a vital part of life.

#6     The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much!

#7     Putting a smile on someone’s face is priceless. It is not enough to be blessed, be a blessing!

#8      In life, there are no permanent friends or foes.

#9     You can always be a better you. Never let mediocrity creep in.

#10  There is a time and season for everything under the Sun.

#11  A good name is better than silver and gold.

#12  You are responsible for the way your life turns out. You choose!

#13  Learn from the experiences of people around you.

#14  Never give up!

#15  The destination is important but don’t forget to enjoy the journey.

#16  You can never please everybody. Above all, please God!

#17  The path of righteousness is a lonely path. Most of the time, if not all the time, you tread it alone. (that’s my mum’s mantra)

#18  The discovery and passionate pursuit of life’s purpose brings fulfillment.

That’s all folks. Don’t forget to send in my gifts. *winks* Thank you.

  1. It’s funny how we share similar lessons and experiences. I can relate to just about everything on your list. I’ll include one more thing “…redeem the time, because the days are evil…”

    Happy birthday to you. Have a day as beautiful as you are.

  3. Well said.
    Days should speak,and multitude of years should teach wisdom.But my dear,its obvious that this maturity, wisdom,knowledge and understanding is nothing but inspiration from the almighty.
    A fresh unction is upon you.
    He would teach you to number your days,and apply them to wisdom.
    You have fresh grace for the race.
    You will know your God more,and do exploits.
    HE would make His face shine upon you.
    You would be the Blessing.
    HE would make perfect all that concerns you.
    Your life would bring forth fruit in season,and shine brighter and brighter until that perfect day.And at the End,HE would say Well Done!!
    Enjoy your best year ever!.Cheers!!!
