Monthly Archives: December 2012


I have been writing so many articles on year 2012 and year 2013 in recent times and I think I will still write a couple more before the year 2012 winds down. Don’t get tired because it is going to be on different issues that are so important. I am so happy for many reasons and I am grateful for the friends I have who have kept me in top mood.

For few weeks now or even a month, my friends on my BBM list have been appreciating their friends in one way or the other. Some have done this by just having pictures of their friends as their display picture(DP) for some minutes or even a few hours, others take it a step further by sending broadcast messages(BCs) while a particular friend of mine went a little more personal by sending me a personal message via BBM. While this is so common to those of us on BBM, it is less common using SMS or even through other means of communication.

It really made me happy that I have friends who appreciate our friendship and are willing to say  THANK YOU to me for being their friend. Though, I am not a big fan of showing appreciations by displaying pictures, sending broadcast messages, sending SMSes or even calling but I do appreciate all my friends and that’s why I have taking time out to write this article for them.

I might not be able to write the names of all my friends or even state what they have done for me personally in one way or the other, but all I just want to say is THANK YOU for being a friend in 2012. I have got to appreciate my friends for so many reasons.

THE HAPPY TIMES– These were times when you were the source of my joy and happiness. These times really made me feel loved accepted and appreciated. These times boost my confidence and made me feel that the world starts and ends with you. For all this I say THANK YOU


THE SAD TIMES– These were times when you let me down. These times I felt rejected, dejected, disappointed and unappreciated. I don’t hold it against you because, the sad times made me stronger and more experienced in dealing with life issues. For all this times, I also say THANK YOU.


THE TIMES OF SHARING- These were times when I was in dire need of help, assistance, advice, money (hmm!) and every other thing and you were always there to rescue and help me out of the situation. For all these times, I say THANK YOU.

Finally, for all my friends that were in hibernate mode throughout 2012, the year 2013 is another year, we can make it better because friends are major parts of our lives. For those that have been there till now and till the end of the year, let’s do it in the New Year again.

To my numerous readers, find time to say a word of appreciation to your friends, it really goes a long way in helping your friendship grow. i just did and i hope you will too.

While I was writing this article, one song came to my mind and I will be dedicating this song to all my friends wherever they are.

Yeah! I know I am going to get more views this time compared to my former post on NEW YEAR RESOLUTION because we all want to hold somebody this festive season but I am so sorry to disappoint you, that is just the title of a song I so much love and believe in that I want share with my readers.

So many of us will by now be thinking of the title, trying to decipher who sang while some others by now already know the song that I am writing about. I didn’t just pick this song to write about, I picked it because of the lyrics, the effect the song will have on us if we ever pay the tiniest of attentions to what the singer was saying in that song and the timelessness of the song.

The song is no other than BABY, LET ME HOLD YOU TONIGHT by TRACY CHAPMAN. This song was released off her self-titled album ‘TRACY CHAPMAN’ in the year ‘1988’. The song obviously did lots of good for TRACY and will sure do lots of good to us too if we care enough to listen to her.

Here are the lyrics of the song:

Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like sorry like sorry

Forgive me
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like forgive me forgive me

But you can say baby
Baby can I hold you tonight
Maybe if I told you the right words
At the right time you’d be mine

I love you
Is all that you can’t say
Years gone by and still
Words don’t come easily
Like I love you I love you.


Tracy chapman in this song was trying to not just emphasizing the importance of romantic love, but also singing on how the world will be if we all learn to use the words ‘I am sorry’ and ‘forgive me’.  These words could be quite  difficult to say especially when we are the ones to say them but saying them does  a lot of good and heals a lot of wounds.

So, as we round up 2012, if we feel there is one person out there that you feel there is the need to go say those words to, don’t hesitate, do it right away enter into the new year, lets always remember this song and continue toi say ‘I am sorry’ and ‘ forgive me’ whenever we feel the need to.

Three days to end of 2012 and four days to see the start of 2013, about this time so many people are rounding up a lot of things and preparing to start a whole lot of others because of the new year including the practice of making NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS. Are you planning to make one? Then this is for you.

A New Year’s resolution is commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. A key element to a New Year’s Resolution that sets it apart from other resolutions is that it is made in anticipation of the New Year and new beginnings. People committing themselves to a New Year’s resolution generally plan to do so for the whole following year. This lifestyle change is generally interpreted as advantageous

The number of people that don’t keep a resolution they make is as much as the number of people that make a resolution from the beginning because of various reasons. A 2007 study by RICHARD WISEMAN Read the rest of this entry »
