Is it just me — or is this year going by really, really, REALLY FAST?
I can hardly believe there are only few more weeks left until 2014. Almost time to start setting new goals and strategic planning for the New Year.
Before we do that, I think this is the perfect opportunity to carve out some time to be grateful for what we have accomplished. Even if you didn’t quite hit your destination, still you are not where you were at the beginning of this year. Be grateful, reflect on what you did accomplish, and journal on what you are grateful for this year.
This year you realized that you were stronger than you thought; you faced your situation… got up, and recreated yourself. You didn’t feel sorry for yourself and today you are grateful for that.
Reflect and, this week, be thankful for what you have rather than dwelling on what you may have lost. Your life is waiting to unfold for the better in 2014 – get excited!
Focus on the fact that you planted plenty of seeds that will flourish this coming year and be grateful for that.
I believe in you!
“Count your blessings…gratitude is the fuel of resiliency.
Train your mind to think of at least one thing for which you are thankful everyday. It is often easy to overlook the small but significant blessings in your life.
Look for positive things outside of yourself, because sometimes you can’t trust your mind.
When you choose to look at the positives instead of focusing on the negatives, you strengthen your courage, and your internal capacity to take on life. Look yourself in the eye, and realize that you are ultimately responsible for working your way out of this situation.
Give up the desire for things to be easy, and deal with circumstances such as you find them.
Know that you have the power to live a meaningful and happy life.
I love this quote from Les Brown, I think it sums up exactly what I feel.
What are you grateful for today?
