I was listening to the radio the other day – yes, I still listen to the radio. My younger friends make fun of me, but I’m ok with that.
At any rate, the guy on the radio was talking about 2015, and mentioned the top five Google searches for this past year – Adele’s new album, the Paris attacks, Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, and if you were searching today, you could probably add Star Wars to the list.
It got me thinking – what if I Googled my own mind for the events that made a difference in my personal life this past year? What top five events would make my list? Who are the people that I have touched and who touched me in return- possibly changing my life forever.
My list certainly would NOT be the same as the Google list. Even though I enjoy Adele’s music, I can’t say that it has made a profound difference in my world.
So I decided to take a few minutes, reflect and make a list of the top five positive turns my life has taken in 2015. I decided that I wanted to face the new year with a positive attitude, and that is where my focus lies.
At the top of my list, not surprisingly, are the new friends I have made along the way, and the old friendships that I have nurtured. And at the top of that list is my husband. It’s so comforting to know that each and every day, there is someone who has my back.
Just as important is my family and the stronger ties that continue to build between my brothers and myself. Rounding out my list would be having a profession that I love, going on my dream trip, and learning to live a more peaceful life.
Have you given any thought to what your personal top five Google list would be for 2015? Even if you just have one, share it with me. I’d love to hear what you absolutely loved about 2015.
