Possibly the most difficult new year resolution you can ever make for 2018. I dare you.
Truth be told, I did not make any new year’s resolution for 2017, but it turned out way better than I expected. My focus for 2017 was solely on my business and the verse Joel 2:25 came into my remembrance; “So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten”.
God has been very good to my real estate business and I capped the year on a high, amongst the top producers in my previous company PropNex and current company Huttons. ‘I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase’ (1 Corinthians 3:6). And for that, I’m grateful to God for His Blessing.
“So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten”
– Joel 2:25
Perhaps it’s (the realisation of fragility of) one’s finite lifespan that causes us to set new year’s resolution, so as to make (positive) adjustments in our lives. Most of us would make resolutions such as the following:
In the spirit of making new year’s resolutions, I have been thinking of making just one new year’s resolution, and focus on fulfilling it. While all the resolutions stated above are all significant and important in their own right, I want to make 2018 about becoming a better version of myself.
Hence here goes! I am making the new year’s resolution to not be angry at all. That means only entertaining good vibes 24/7, 365 days a year. That would mean not cursing at those novice/fast-n-furious drivers who cut my lane haphazardly, that would mean not being upset with the patron who cut my queue at the Cai Png stall, that would simply mean – not being angry at all.
A friend told me that I’m setting myself for failure since even a pastor is susceptible to this very human emotion. But where my capacity is maxed, I rely on God’s. So wish me the strongest of will, and good vibes only!
