First and foremost, I’d like to thank God for bringing us thus far.
Secondly, I’d like to thank you, my readers, my fans, and my followers for reading my posts this past year. For comments on the website, via text, via FB messenger, via the website contact us, via email, via Facebook and other social media. I feel great joy when someone messages me to say a post resonated with them or that something I wrote made sense to them. And most importantly, for sharing and spreading the love.
A few people have asked how I make my bread and butter from this website, and how they can be more supportive. So, here’s how: adverts and Amazon affiliate program. If you see something you would like to buy, click on it even if you don’t buy there and then. If you want to purchase anything from Amazon, please click on the amazon link on the website and take it from there. And sharing on social media or WhatsApp is always great and much appreciated.
As we approach the end of the year, it is good to reflect on the year and ponder on what you have learned. Reflect on what you can improve on. Reflect on what you need to change. Meditate on what you need/want to add. Above all be grateful and thankful for everything.
For me, I have realised that having an attitude of gratitude towards whatever comes my way, makes it easier to evaluate rather than judge, what is good for me and what is not. I have learned (in most cases….. the hard way) how to trust my gut instincts and sixth sense. I have learned if the gut instincts or sixth senses lead me to a path of less righteous, I have enough courage to deal with the consequences in a positive way. It wasn’t easy and I am still on self-discovery and personal growth. A lot of my own personal growth and maturity have come from researching and writing for Things I hear. It has been a great platform to inspire myself and others, to empower and motivate people and provide food for thought.
Other things I’ve learned include but not limited to:-
Expect nothing from people, so when they disappoint you, it’s not a surprise, and when they deliver it’s a pleasant surprise.
Take time to breathe.
Practise self-restraint and discipline. Because when things go wrong or out of your control, worrying won’t change a thing.
It is futile to torture yourself by seeking revenge or retribution – it’s wasted energy.
Think of your emotional energy in terms of money – beware of energy vampires.
Learn to listen to understand, not to respond.
I enjoy researching and writing up these posts and I truly believe they help people.
I will continue this in the new year.
For now, I just want to wish you all a very merry Christmas 2019 and a prosperous 2020. The year of insightfulness, clear vision and revolutionary breakthroughs.
Be kind always
Be humble for always
