Can you believe the year is through?! I, for one, cannot. It seems that the older I get, the faster time goes by. I have very conflicting feelings about this. On the positive side, I have become much more appreciation for the time I have. I try to be more deliberate with my moments and savor the good ones. Gratitude, for me at least, seems to come with age. On the flip side, I'm still getting older... (Ha!)
Be sure to make some quiet time to reflect on this past year. What did you enjoy? What didn't you enjoy? Relish your achievements and let go of any failures. I challenge you to do more of what makes you happy and be deliberate with your time. Be present in the moment and simply enjoy life more.
