It’s the beginning of a New Year; the beginning of a new decade. What will you do to make your mark on the next ten years?
WOW – that’s a very daunting thought! Very, very overwhelming!! So, in order to relieve the pressure of setting more goals, I’ve decided to look at this New Year a little differently. I’ve decided to stop, take a deep breath, turn around and see how far I have come. I’ve decided to take time to celebrate all the people and events and moments that I have experienced in the last year and give myself a pat on the back for all that I have accomplished.
I have come to realize that finding happiness is different for each of us. It doesn’t always mean reaching a goal or accomplishing something bigger and better. It doesn’t always mean being richer or thinner or smarter. Sometimes it’s just taking time to enjoy what you have right in front of you. Sometimes it’s saying: I’m happy where I am in this moment in time, no excuses and no explanations.
So that is my New Year wish for you: that you find your joy, embrace it, celebrate it and be happy for who you are. And if you find yourself in a place that is challenging, find that one thing – only one – that brings a smile to your face, if only for a minute or two, and celebrate that. Find your joy, whatever it may be, and celebrate it.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
