At the start of every year we always ask ourselves, “what’s in store for me this year?” I’m sure many of you asked poor 2014 about it when it has not even lasted a full day yet. But didn’t it even occur to you that it is us who create our own destiny? A year is not like a box filled with life’s goodies such as those captivating words on the photo above (with acknowledgments to the Fountain International School, by the way). We should not liken life to a calendar year. While life may be a box filled with chocolates, a year is an empty box. And we have an obligation to fill it up. Therefore, it is good ‘ol 2014 who should ask us instead:
“What are you gonna fill me up with?”
A year is just a number. But with our own perseverance and faith in God, we have the capability to make it come alive. Don’t falter whenever you encounter bad-tasting chocolates; that is part of life which Forrest Gump’s mom failed to tell him. Just spit it out and move on. As we say in Spanish: así es la vida.
So let us make 2014 a meaningful one. Happy New Year! And may God bless and guide us all!
