I love this time of year. I get the chance to spend a few days with family, reflect on what’s been accomplished, map out some new goals, and get a few days off from work. I’ll be honest. Having 5 days straight of life sans plantation brings me tremendous joy. The little break makes a big difference in my attitude and energy. I’ll end up getting more accomplished in the next week than I’ve probably accomplished in the whole year. I’ll explain why I said that on another day. But for today, I’m just happy to be here.
Hopefully, you feel the same. If you don’t, take a moment to reflect on this past year and all the ups and downs. You’re still here. You’ve gotten through them, or you’re getting through them. You have supportive family and friends that want you to be great, whether it be people online or “in real life” as we like to say.
It’s funny. Sometimes I think folks online are more generous and encouraging than people I know in real life. Of course I know there are tons of trolls out there spewing unnecessary and destructive e-venom. But, I don’t wanna focus on the negativity. I’m choosing to focus on the good and the positive plenty. You should do the same. It’s healthier and changes your life’s trajectory by about 20 degrees.
I’m only putting up one post next week. It’s gonna be something on New Years Resolutions. I’m not sure which day I’ll run it, but you’ll know when it’s here. In the mean time, happy holidays and I’ll see you sometime next week.
Oh, and do feel free to share one good thing that happened to you this week and/or what you’re looking forward to this holiday season.
Reflecting & Recharging,
