The busiest time of year is here with both the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. Lots of things involved to properly celebrate, which makes us all very busy. I am ready for the holidays. My family will be together once again. I look forward to spending most of my time on personal things. I anticipate and enjoy being in the company of loved ones and reconnecting with those close to me.
As it is near the end of the year, it is also a time of reflection. I have had a year with several major changes. Some good, some bad. On the whole, I’m lucky that the good outweighs the bad. That makes for a positive year. Several people have remarked they are surprised that I maintain a positive attitude. I much prefer that to the alternative. Yes, there is room for improvement. Always. For what I can control, I will look to make those improvements. Keep the good and change/fix the bad – always a goal for the next year.
I’m ready for the holidays and hope you are also. Keep the old traditions alive and start some new ones. Appreciate those who are in our lives and remember those who have past and are no longer with us.
During this busy time, I encourage you to carve out time to reconnect with those people near to you. Make some memories – laugh, love, live.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Peace.
