Making New Year’s Resolutions is nothing new. As a matter of fact, historians have said the Babylonians were the first to make New Year’s Resolutions roughly 4,000 years ago. Which means, for centuries upon centuries, people have used the top of the year to promise themselves better health, better wealth ,and a certain glow up they’ve yet to attain before. While I’m not sure what happened back in the days of the Babylonians, I know in this day and age, commitment to keeping resolutions has become somewhat of a running joke.
Think about it. How many people do you know that have been working on their “summer body” for about four summers? (No shade intended, because I too have been working on my summer body since 2016 myself LOL). And how many folks can you name right now that have been committed to leveling-up in their career yet have made no efforts to move out of their current job? I won’t even touch on the unfulfilled travel goals people make yet make no efforts to save money for said goals. (Again, no shade intended, but I too can relate.)
Hey everyone. It’s Euphonious K.Z.G. again, and Happy New Year!! *bursts out balloons and confetti*. It’s 2018 and I hope you all are feeling good about this New Year. If you aren’t, no worries. There is plenty of time to develop a brighter outlook for the rest of the year. I didn’t start my New Year off on the most exciting note, but it was very insightful. Let me back track a bit for you all.
Hey folks! I hope everyone is ready to tackle these last days of the year, and walk on into 2018. Personally reflecting on 2017, I have to say it was quite interesting.
In the today’s world, a value has been placed on everything. Off the top of your head, I bet many of you could accurately estimate the price of a new iPhone, a pair of Jordan shoes, or a brand new sedan of your choosing. For some time now, the world has elected to place a price on natural elements of the earth like water, gas, and even oxygen in some luxurious instances. And of course money has value. Why do you think so much attention is placed on the U.S. dollar and the Euro? In spite of all the things society highly values, we somehow devalue two of the most important things a person can own. Belief and Faith.
Happy Monday everyone, and congrats on making it to another workweek. I know as a society, we’ve often gotten accustomed to hating Mondays. We often sigh and complain about Monday being the furthest day from the amazing thing we call the weekend. It’s within our weekly routine to see this first day of the workweek as this unexciting, gloomy, and dreadful 24 hours that puts an abrupt halt to our two days of fun and rest. For some, it has become a habit to think of this day as the bringer of new problems at work with the same people they’ve grown to dislike in the confines of their office or cubicle. I know all about the “Monday blues.” But over the past few years, my outlook of America’s favorite day to hate has changed.
Dear Younger Self,
Don’t file this away as spam, or as something completely irrelevant. I want you to take time to really think on the words I’m about to share with you. Not because I’ve all of a sudden discovered the answers to all of life’s problems. Or because I desperately want to be another person today. But instead, look at my letter as words of wisdom from a more knowledgeable you. Words to help you to be a little less naive about somethings as you get older. After all besides Jesus, I’m the only that truly knows the real you. Including the “you” that you try to keep hidden and the “you” that you don’t even know exists yet.
