A LETTER TO THE DYING YEAR
As we are gradually nearing your end,
We are also preparing to give you befitting tributes at your tolling moment.
Each of us is very busy rounding off your activity while we anticipate the resolutions of the yet to be born year. Patiently, we wait with much anxiety knowing not what the future hold for us. But to tell you 2018, it is better to trust in a new dawn than to struggle with the mirages of our hope in you for a better beginning at your end.
2018, you have been amazing, we all are happy and need to appreciate that we are alive to see you go and never come back again. You played your part, whether good or bad your eventual end is near and we can’t help you stay a little longer but we are thankful for the lessons you have taught us.
And yes, you have helped us to comprehend the things we struggled to accept. 2018, you were very kind to teach us that failures are part of the processes leading to the ultimate victory. They made us even stronger and braver.
The obstacles you brought our way were rather spring balls of our success in the future if not the present. Every move of ours whether it is rise or fall was worth it and they are all counting for our blessings in the coming new year.
I must admit, you were never an easy year, but the experiences are well appreciated.
You opened our eyes to the sad truths which woke us up from our slumbers.
Some people may have left our lives while many more others may have abandoned us. It is true that people change and time changes too but it is for a good reason. They are all part of the deal of life.
Attempting our dreams and aspirations may have been very scary indeed, but we are holding on to hope and faith that we shall overcome.
There were hurts, there were betrayals, there were sleepless nights, there were bad choices and terrible mistakes but then, there were also bright days and lots of love too, yet and again there were many more unlocked opportunities.
As it is, no one can change the hands of the proverbial clock to bring back the time wasted. The moments we wished we could have done more and the energy we spent regretting our mistakes are now starring at us. If it is in your power to give unto us a second chance to make amends then make it really quick before you return to your maker and give us a moment to celebrate our achievements and success being it little or big.
Cheers to our successes chopped this year, yes we made it to today and we shall smile wide not because we do not have our individual battles or troubles to fight but because we are stronger than all our afflictions.
That is why we are all saying thank you a million times, 2018. For all you have brought to our table because through it all we have learned to become the best.
As we are about to ring you out we wish you a happy ending and fare thee well, 2018.
