Reflect, Refract, Reform!

***Reflect, Refract, REFORM***

“…but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before…”

-St. Paul

Welcome to the year 2013!

So we all stuffed our bellies and faces foolishly, engaged in all manner of debaucherous gluttony and excessive drinking, and spending; And we also enjoyed the heavenly spins of Midnight Mass, not to mention the screaming children at 4am waiting in vain for the fruit of their letters to poor ol’ Santa Claus! Then we gloriously marched (in the UK especially not sure about everywhere else) to “Boxing Day Sales” to rid ourselves of unwanted and disappointing gifts (Oh the plague of having too much choice!) and spend the christmas vouchers and monies we received from our dear ol’ uncles, aunts and grandparents with joyous glee! Finally, we anticipated the vain resolutions we prepared for the ultimate BOOM of the Year 2013 and met the year with Thanksgiving, Prayers, Joy and Gladness, and yes indeed, much Celebration! I think that must about summed up the last two weeks right?

Thank the Lord! But, I’m third day in to the year and I’ve already met challenges number 2013 appendix 1-3 on board this Train, ever seeking to press the buttons that echo and resemble the familiar smells of TWENTY TWELVE! Glory!

Yes, 2012, tried to rear his ugly head and manipulate my year already by weaving his ugly tentacles into the pores of my engine on board Service2013 Express Railways of Life”. Well, no siree! This year I am determined more than ever to take creativity beyond its bounds, even with taking risks but how does one intend to progress on this journey of fruitfulness, when the robber and the thief seek to steal and destroy our crop of the present. and joy of the future by sowing the Tears of our past? How do we overcome such radical opposition to our progress?

Well the wisdom lies here echoed in the famous words of St. Paul in a letter to the ancient Greeks- the Philippians:

“…but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before…”

Yes. That’s it. Leave the Past behind. Cut the tentacles of 2012 off and Praise the Lord for the victories won in that year but as any athlete would tell you, press onwards and upwards. This means Discipline yourself to FORGET. Pursue; Overtake; Recover all that 2013 has to offer.

So I’ve reflected. I’ve Refracted. Now, I Reform to Transform a thoughtless generation.

Keeping it Real, The Elected Lady xx
