Can anybody believe we are going to year-end functions already!? 2017 Flashed by at the speed of light while some of us are still in the process of making our New Year’s resolutions.
Few of us ever manage to keep to all or even one of our resolutions, this usually makes us kind-of sad when November swings around. But have you ever thought of all the non-resolutions you unwittingly managed to keep?
Have you consistently been nice to people who needed it, helped out a friend whenever you could, made sandwiches for the underp
rivileged? Then your year has not been a waste and you may have actually done the really important things.
So, who cares if you still do not have a six-pack, a new car or your dream job? Your year has for sure not been a waste. Maybe, for 2018, come up with resolutions that count. Perhaps it is not that important to lose those pesky 5kgs but it is a real deal to lighten sombody’s load.
This is what I was contemplating on our Year-end function game drive through Pilanesberg National Park, sponsored by Mankwe Game Trackers and RATA. I started out reminiscing my “failures” but on such a beautiful day, in nature, surrounded by so many fantastic people, I soon enough stopped feeling sorry for myself and started focussing on my “victories”, instead.
