It will still be a happy year...

By Anne Mukei | January 10th 2016

The year is still fresh and many hearts are hopeful that this will indeed be a good year.

A happy year peppered with good health, an increase in finances, healthy relationships and general fulfillment in life.

Even when life has disappointed one in any way or the other over the years, many of us opt to keep hope alive by being optimistic that tomorrow will be a better day.

We choose not to let the loss of jobs and loved ones dim our candle of hope — we choose to forge on even when the skies have been grey for the longest time.

Because without a doubt, one Monday morning, things will change.

You may feel that the illness is taking a toll on you.

The doctors are almost giving up and your otherwise expectant attitude is slowly weathering away.

But one Monday morning, you will wake up and note that the pain is no more.

Then you will be able to enjoy optimal health, and the days of pain and disease will be gone.

The death of your beloved was heart breaking.

Life holds no meaning.

The things that hitherto used to excite you no longer mean anything to you.

But take heart.

One Monday morning, you will be pleasantly shocked to realise that your soul is glad.

Yes, you will do a double take to ensure that there is no pain in your once sad heart, the constant dull pain long gone.

It will all be long gone, one Monday morning. One Monday morning, you will see the world from a different perspective. The trauma will be forgotten, the memories buried in the deep confines of your mind, never to be awaken.

Things will be changed.

You will forget why you were ever so sad.

The flowers will look brighter, the sun even sunnier.

The cells in your body will tingle — no longer out of the fear of living but because the future will certainly be brighter and more exciting.

The bitterness and anger will be all gone.

Life will hold a new meaning for you, your smile more beautiful because of the tears you once cried, and the sorrow you once knew.

One Monday morning, you will acknowledge your true purpose of living.

You will understand why you are still alive and what you need to fill your days with.

You will be able to live for you and not what society and others dictate.

One Monday morning, the change you need so much will happen, and your world will just be alright.

One Monday morning you will be able to experience the best of what might be, because adversity will have borne prosperity.
