Happy New Year 2022

Have a blessed 2022
Happy New Year 2022

Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed 2022 ahead.

2021 was a recovery year from the infamous Covid virus.

While Covid was bad, Covid also taught humanity was it was like to be humans. We saw a great outpouring of love when people of all faiths started helping the needy with food and other essentials. And for once, the rich couldnt distance themselves from the disease – their wealth couldnt protect them outright although their wealth bought them the best treatment.

The head of an oil and gas company allegedly said that he comes to work daily and isnt worried about the risk it poses to his young, unvaccinated children at home. What he didnt realise with such a reckless statement was that if and when his kids get Covid, he can afford the best healthcare but his low level employees cant — they have to take their kids to the local general hospital and hope for the best.

We dont know how fortunate we are and we think our circumstances applies to everyone. But not everyone can afford the simple things that we can. And we should never forget that.

Use 2022 to build people up. Make some time to go and help another person. Money doesn’t solve everything. Some people just needs someone to listen to them. Some people need help. Just ask. Dont assume.

Happy new year to you!

December – Month of Reflection

In all my years of working, I never had a month off to reflect on the year until this year.

What is so different about this year?

Well, with Covid, there is not much work out there and all of us have ample annual leaves, which we’re being asked to use up.

Fair enough. I need the time to unwind. My last holiday was 365 days ago.

2022 is going to be interesting. As I write this, the new Covid variant, Omicron, has decided to visit us. Will countries go into self lock down again?

Today I stumbled upon this quote by Henry David Thoreau:

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams,

and endeavours to live the life which he has imagined,

he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.

He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary;

new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him;

or old laws will be expanded and interpreted in his favour in a more liberal sense,

and he will live with a license of a higher order of things.

– Henry David Thoreau

Cease worrying. Make plans for the future. Just remember that in the end, it’s God that makes the plans that we think we’ve made.
