I looked at my own life and questioned how I fared.

I am a bit off in some of my goals: I have not hit my financial target, I am not married yet, I did not bond as much as I wanted with my dad neither did I have good family time. Yes, I did miss some marks.

In all these, I saw many blessings this year. I grew my mind, my visibility and influence.

I risked showing the world some of my shortcomings, I risked been judged by many eyes, I risked people questioning my points and questioning my authority. I risked combining so many things I do and losing sleep and fun time. I risked leading by example with the thought of not making a mistake that will affect those following me closely.

I stole a glance to my left and there she was going through her phone, the brightness of her phone gave way to my picture on her screen. I looked again and saw she was going through my blog. Excited, I quickly grabbed my phone and captured the moment. She turned around when my camera flash fell on her and I smiled and stated my case before her majesty.
