2017 still new

January 18, 2017


In one episode in the current season of the 'Ity and Fancy Cat Show', my super talented, eccentric and crazy cousin Noel ‘Rozah Roze’ Ellis jumps out of a deep sleep with food on his mind.

So he hungrily takes a box of ‘overnight’ food from his fridge to his microwave oven while singing ‘is it too late to eat hot curry?’

It’s a humorous parody on Justin Bieber’s question from his 2015 hit song Sorry which asks the question ‘is it too late now to say sorry?’ 

So is it too late now to say Happy New Year? Yes, peeps, seriously; that’s my silly little question to you. Is this year called 2017 still fresh and new?

I’m asking, just so I can get this thing clear, before I belatedly wish you a 'Happy New Year'.

After all, if a year is just 12 months, by the sixth month it already reach middle age and by the ninth month it start get old and stale and ready fi dead.

So maybe after January is over it will be too late to wish anybody happy new year. What you think?

For me, a new year never actually starts until April because that is my birth month.

Yeah, that is when my personal year really gets going, chronologically, spiritually and financially. So as far as I’m concerned it’s not too late to send out the wishes.

Also, I’m not really into making new year resolutions but I feel like it’s a good time now to make some new year declarations.

Yes friends, an anointed man of God told me, and I believe him, that this is going to be a great year for me!

So right now me a name it, frame it and claim it. Yes friends and others, I hereby share it and declare it, the grass a go get really green inna 2017!

And I want to invite you to do the same. Yes, that’s the lesson I’m learning that I want to spread. Words have power. And we often spend too much time a whine and complain.

We need to speak our healing into being instead of bawling about out pain. If problems are all we speak of, then that is all we will end up seeing.

We have to start speaking powerful and positive things into being. Novelist Mary Ann Evans who used the pen name George Eliot said “It’s never too late to be who you might have been.” A dat me a say fi 2017!
