Another year has come to an end and the holiday season is in full swing. Hopefully, you have been able to take a break from work and the structure of your regular routine to put your feet up and enjoy the company of family and friends. Everywhere we look are signs of the season, and despite the cold weather, it is a great place to be. We spend weeks anticipating the holidays, but they seem to fly by so quickly.
Most of us find ourselves in a place of reflection during this time of year. We consider the events of the twelve months behind us, and celebrate all the good things that happened along the way. What did 2014 mean to you? Were there any significant events that highlighted your year? Did you overcome any personal challenges, or accomplish a goal that was meaningful to you?
The start of a brand new year gives us a chance to make some changes and redefine our priorities. It opens an opportunity to shake the bad habits that held us back, and have a fresh start. For many of us, it’s like turning a page. Resolutions are easily broken, but setting high personal expectations for yourself is the only way to move forward into another successful year.
I wish you all the best in the New Year. I hope the holidays provide you with some much needed R&R, and hope you find plenty of time to spend with people that matter the most. 2014 was a great year, but 2015 will be even better! Whether you plan on spending the holidays close to home or have the chance to fly somewhere a little sunnier and warmer, I hope the New Year finds you well and I look forward to connecting with you in 2015.
