A new year is always a challenge

  1.  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
  2. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
  3.  And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 

This passage is taken from Genesis 1:1 – 3 (NIV). In my adult life this verse has always been replayed at the beginning of each calender year. This year has brought a few familiar challenges to my academic and a personal life. Before I delve into it let me first digress to who I am.

My name is Nhlakanipho Tlhalefo Sibusiso Dhlamini. Many people (especially those I’ve met post high school) know me as Sibusiso. I am the eldest of 4 children, I am a student and have recently switched my course & institution where I study.

I generally am a nice guy, I love to laugh, God is King of the earth Jesus is alive and the Holy spirit is moving. I enjoy house music and like to watch films. My interests are, entrepreneurship, film and television,design, music, fashion, photography, food and people.

Right ! Now, the switch to study Marketing management was quite strenuous and filled with admin, especially when doing all of that in the beginning of the year. I must say that without family support one can get discombobulated by dealing with such tedious administrative tasks without patience and understanding from people.

The end of the month came and a new beginning with it. After much efforts were made to register at my current institution. The light has come and for me the world is a bit brighter due to prayer, family, support, self belief, having a vision and taking responsibility of my past actions.
