As 2014 closes...

One way or another, in our lifetime journey, we would really encounter rejection with an unimaginable level of pain from the people we’d once met and cared about and from the circumstances we chose to embrace.

But time rolls and situations change.

One day, another dawn is breaking, the sun brightens up promising a new beginning and eventually we will forget the traces of those hurt and failure. Everything becomes enchanting again, more inspiring, vibrant and auspicious, because life is generous, we’ve given so many chances to identify God’s graces, either in the places we’ve visited or through the people we’ve meet. Life, with all its vagueness, manifests magic and excitement, and the more we are keen to understand its vagueness, the more generous it is to us and the more we will understand the complexities of the world.

We will eventually encounter new people who will play an important role in our existence. They might be folks we meet in the new workplace, in the street, in a party, in the most unlikely places or someone we did not meet yet or might never meet at all.

Whatever it is, they did not cross in our road for nothing; circumstances make way for the encounter to take place for a specific purpose, either to teach us a lesson or provide us an inspiration. And somewhere along the way, something will fall into place, it could be an answered prayer or another lesson to live by.

Either way, happiness is visibly felt. Life offers tons of reasons to smile, to be inspired, to be motivated, to be cheerful, to acknowledge God’s gifts and to express deepest gratitude for all His goodness.

There are moments that we feel like being stuck in the corner of desolation but that’s our human side. God is so huge larger than our problems and concerns. He always makes things possible. He has bigger plans better than what we’ve always dreamed of. He knows what’s best for us, where we should be walking and to whom we should start relating. It might be delayed, or a little bit late based on our timeline but trust God, for His time is always perfect.

Life does not end in misery or in rejection or in chaos. It’s a continuous quest and somewhere along this journey, we will really meet nice people who deserve our attention, who are wonderful, selfless and supportive. They did not just burst in unto our horizon with no reasons at all, it’s the work of God, something or someone destined to cross our paths to be the instrument of a new hope and motivation.

As 2014 closes, I would like to thank all the people I encountered this year especially those who provided me with so much memories to cherish.
