Don't you feel the same way?
Well, you should! No matter what happened this year, 2018, you should still be thankful. If you reflect on your journey so far, you and I had 365 days of making choices. Some of us made good choices most of the time, and some of us did not make all good choices all the time. What is important is to reflect and take away some lessons.
Some say do not look at the past. That is partially true. The real meaning of that statement is not to dwell in your past. But we can learn something from the past so we will not repeat the mistakes of the past in the future.
So, let's be specific now. Why am I thankful for 2018?
To start with, 2018 is another year of working with my wife and I am really thankful for that. As I have mentioned in another blog, "Working with my wife", not many men like to work together with their wives. I enjoy working with Olivia. Actually, it is a dream come true. Since I quit my job six years ago to focus on my entertainment business, I prayed to God to set Olivia free from the corporate job so she could be with me and do business together. It happened and I am thankful for that.
Another reason to be thankful for 2018 is that we managed to settle fully a car loan payment. According to the bank records, if we continued normally with our monthly payments, our car should be paid in two years time. I believe in July 2018 we went to the bank and settle the whole amount. It was a great feeling. Another step towards being debt free. The Bible says, "Owe no one anything, except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law" Romans 13:8. It is nice to drive a debt free car:)
Our business in 2018 reached another level. The credit goes to my darling Olivia as she worked hard and smart in all the projects. Very thankful for clients who trusted us even when we did not have any credentials for the projects. It is God's favor. Through one of the projects, we get to go all the way to Japan for a week and it was a great trip.
One of the most important reasons to be thankful for 2018 is that all our family members enjoyed good health. Thank God for His protection and divine health. Health is wealth and it is true. Without health is not possible to enjoy the wealth.
In summary, I am thankful for 2018 as I am another year wiser. I get to spend a lot of time with my wife and the kids. We drive debt free cars, good business, and health. Now it is your turn to reflect on 2018. You don't have to write a blog, unless you chose to, but take the time and write down at least five things you are thankful for 2018 and be excited for 2019. Design the life you deserve.
