2020: Redemption Season

I could start by making excuses for my long absence and for the commitments that I made to my readers but failed to fulfill. I might even begin with a review of last year’s many challenges and how I reacted in the face of every one of them. Then again, I could start by apologising for always apologising for being inconsistent with blogging.

But I’ll do none of these — instead, I’ll start by thanking everyone who read my blog last year, and those who were there for me during my greatest moment of need, for being a part of my 2019 journey. In spite of all the challenges and obstacles that 2019 presented to us, it was a good year regardless. And so I’ve decided to no longer dwell on regret.

After all, regret is only a waste of time and energy. We can’t undo what has been done, but every new day offers us the chance to shape it — to shape our lives — the way that we want. Which is why I’ve now resolved to start living in the present, and to make the most of the it, too.

No more obsessing over the past; no more fussing about the future. Life is too short to waste every day doing just that.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I have a really good feeling about this year. 2020 will be some sort of redemption season for many of us, and I’m so excited for the opportunities the New Year will bring.

On that note, I welcome you all to 2020, and I wish that you all have a prosperous New Year.

Happy New Year!

  1. Glad your back! And I know what you mean…This past decade was a rough one for me, but I’m leaving all that behind and looking forward to what is right in front of me as well!

      1. Obinna, it is good to hear from you. I hope you commit to a blog a day and grow your followers in amazing ways. WordPress certainly enriched my 2019. I am on my 444th consecutive days of sharing and connecting with a world-wide group of friends. Isn’t it fun?

        1. Oh, wow! That’s a remarkable achievement! And, yes, it sure is fun. I don’t know if I have it in me to pull that off, but I promise to try. My long absence may have dealt a mighty blow to my blog traffic and some relationships. But I’m going to do all I can to make sure my blog recovers this year.

  2. Well, look who’s here?!
    Welcome.
    Happy New Year!
    I’m glad to hear that you are hopeful and things somewhat sorted themselves out. Although, I am curious as to a few things which we spoke about privately.
    Best wishes.

    1. Thanks a lot, Goldie! It feels so good to be back! I hope this year brings you more happiness and peace, and less stress than last year did.

      About those things we spoke about privately, would you rather I messaged you on Twitter or via email?
