Winter Solstice

So, I know I haven’t been on here in a couple of months, but I thought I’d check in as it is the Holidays. So far, so good. This year has had quite a few surprises in store. Some were good, and then others were bad. At first I thought I might rant to you about them, however, that’s not what this time of year is about. It’s not about how your year affected your career or you income. Not to say those aren’t important, but there are more important things to life, you see.

At one point in my life, you could’ve asked me what my number one priority was and I would’ve answered you with something leading to a successful career or outstanding wealth. Somedays, I’ll still on some level answer it that way. However, I’ve learned and am still continuing to learn that the most important thing to do is be thankful for what you have and not take it for granted while it’s in your life. Time is fleeting and it’s hard to say when we might lose an opportunity that we may never get again. Instead of weighing the pros and cons of my life, I choose instead to count my blessings and measure my year by the wonderful times I’ve had with friends and loved ones.

As you go to visit family this year, I hope you will do the same and reflect on yet another year of life.
