As the year transitions to closure I hope we can reprioritize what tasks we feel are the most valuable to allow us to take time to celebrate the holidays with colleagues, neighbors, friends and family. The closure of the year gives us an excellent opportunity to not only plan for renewal with the arrival of the New Year but also puts additional focus on assisting people in need during the holidays.
I feel we all should take every opportunity to learn and grow and this time of year provides many opportunities to share the gift of ourselves with extra incentive to celebrate life, family and friendships. I feel that having the mind-set of generosity and the willingness and enjoyment of sharing the gift of ourselves contributes to better health and well being. I believe this positively enhances our professional and personal lives. Taking the time to care for others less fortunate not only touches those we are assisting it also provides us with an invaluable chance to learn and grow from others’ experiences and knowledge. This could be the extra help a person needs to assist them in getting over or through some difficult times to enable them to be all they can be and strive to be.
As we get ready for year end and prepare to participate in holiday celebrations we should also prepare to assist those in need and set our personal and professional goals to catapult us into the New Year. We should do this with passion, renewed drive and a mind-set to pursue and accomplish our dreams and goals. We should however not overlook the need to plan and incorporate this mind-set into our inner values to help us succeed in whatever goals we want to achieve.
As I have learned we should not overlook life altering events that could cause our lives to go in a completely different direction than we had planned for. Such an occurrence might require us to add the completion of additional training or living modifications into our goals to adapt as best as possible to our new life situation in order to achieve our personal and professional goals. To prepare emotionally for such life altering changes we should anticipate such events and understand everything will not be as easy or comfortable as we might like or are accustomed to. However with the proper support from people around us these life altering changes might be a little more tolerable as we learn to adapt to our life situation.
How will you celebrate the holidays, share yourself with others and commemorate the end of the year? Do you plan to assist the less fortunate or those in need during this holiday season? How will you plan for a joyous and bountiful New Year? We all look forward to hearing from you.
