In December of each year I generally take time to reflect on the previous year’s goals and milestones as well as take time to plan for the coming year. It is something I have done for the past 10 years now and every year there is always a mix of relief and hope: relief that I have my family, my health and so many other blessings- even amidst the tougher years, there were always so many things to be grateful for, as well as hope for a better year as we tear off the last sheet of the calendar.
I know there are many people who are still looking for work after many months; I know there are many people grieving over the loss of a loved one; there are many people wondering how they will get through this holiday with health problems and a host of other issues. My wish for you and your family is simple: take a few minutes to get quiet from the world’s noise, give thanks and to be grateful even for small things. It is only when we are living within a state of gratitude that we are lifted above the pain and suffering.
Happy Holidays…. Joy, Health and Happiness for the New Year
