As the 2016 approaches, I think I am not ready. There are still so many things I need to do, organize, and settle. I haven’t prepared myself for the new year yet, and I feel rushed. In addition, I am simply not ready to let go of 2015 since it was so wonderful.
When I look back on this year, I am amazed at all that has happen. What a whirlwind of events and changes (which I will list in another post on the 30th). My life has evolved greatly and I don’t want it to change again. I like everything right now. Yet, I would have never imagined some of the changes 2015 gave me. So I reflect. Should I fear the change that 2016 may bring? No, I suppose not.
All the changes of 2015 are my acorns, my food and even seedlings for more to come. If I take care of these acorns, they can sustain me or blossom into something more wonderful than I can imagine. I am completely happy with my acorns and don’t need for them to bloom. However, if they do, I will let nature take its course and adjust thankful.
Meanwhile, ready or not, 2016 is on its way. My to-do list keeps growing and I supposed it always will. So all I can do is one task at a time. However, my most important task should always stay the same: care for my acorns of 2015. They were a blessing to find and they could be key elements that help me survive 2016, or they could even turn out to blossom into something even more grand. I guess I will find out in 2016…
“The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream.The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.”
“The greatest oak was once a little nut who held its ground.”
