For those of you that are following my blog….you will kind of find this one out in left field but New Years is fast approaching and I see so many emails and comments on my LinkedIn that talk about the future year ahead and I couldn’t help but add my thoughts!
Make 2011 a year to remember! So many people spend lots of time coming up with “to do” lists for the coming year or “goals” or that awful word “resolutions” but come a few days later…..back to the grind!
STOP! Think about what really makes you happy. Is it your home, your car, your family, your work, your hobby….what is it that makes you tick? Everyone down deep wants to be a better person but in order to be a better person to others, you must be happy inside. Share your best attributes about yourself with others, really get to know someone new, do for others (and I don’t mean writing a check!), make a friend, start a new project….again…things that are going to make YOU happy inside.
I know some of you are out there going BLAH BLAH BLAH….another cheerleader out there in the webworld but just think about it. Everyone is so rushed all the time, running from here to there, but when it comes down to it….life is about living and being a good person and enjoying it all at the same time.
Take the time so smell the roses, step back and focus on the beauty around you every day, stop complaining (no one wants to hear it anyways!), SMILE, share, and LISTEN to the people you love or even those you don’t! Stargaze, watch the water on a lake, birdwatch, take a look at the sky, check out a tree you drive by everyday, people watch! Seriously, GOD put it all there….take a look, a real close look and I think you’ll be amazed to all that we take for granted and don’t appreciate enough! We’re all guilty!
If we all take 5 minutes everyday to just sit back and LOOK and get tuned in…imagine the possibilities! I wish you all the best this coming year! Thanks for taking the time to read my post (if you’re still with me here at this point!:) and have a great day! Be safe and well.
