I must admit I stumbled into 2009 without a plan and within the blink of an eye, the year was over!
Is it really possible that an entire decade has just come to a close? For me the thought was daunting. While I was trying to come to terms with the end of an era, I came across a high school friend's facebook status:
"In the past decade, I graduated from university, fell in love, got marrried, birthed two beautiful boys, found meaningful work, and bought a home. This may have been the best decade yet! "
Although we may have started at the same point, for some of us our journey through the decade cannot be summed up in a few beautiful sentences. For some of us, visibility on the road ahead was not always clear. We may have encountered major potholes and also, may have taken interesting diversions off the path. Even now, where the road ahead is taking us may not also be so certain.
Despite so many uncertainties, there is something about 2010 that I cannot help but be optimistic and excited about. Maybe its the thought of the world's spotlight being on Africa not because of poverty, war, famine, corruption and crime but for the love of The Beautiful game. In 2010 I have resolved to be more focused, to be more organised but at the same time enjoy life alot more. Wishing you all a peaceful, prosperous and productive 2010. May it be a year full of hope, joy, possibilities and love. NB: This post was generated using my phone so apologies if it comes out looking dodgy.
