Feliz Navidad from the warmth of San Miguel, Mexico. The temperature is absolutely perfect and I’m grateful to be relaxing in the comfort of family.
My holiday words are simple yet very important to one’s well being.
In 2012 and beyond, try to do the things you enjoy in life. Don’t put off the travel or passions or whatever you desire. Put yourself FIRST (if only now and then) thus being better able to enjoy the beauty of life and tackle its challenges.
Embrace the family and friends who enhance your life NOT those who lessen it.
Keep the struggles of those less fortunate top of mind along with those dealing with the hardship of the global financial crises and the brave soldiers (throughout the world) fighting for freedom.
In addition, give of your time or money in whatever capacity you can. Try to mentor our youth in some shape or form, whether they are a family member or someone close to you. Lending a helping hand to only one young person could change that life forever!
Be thankful for what you do have even if it is not what you desire. I love this quote:
“Be Grateful for Life”
“Be Grateful to Life”
Remember to evolve or enhance yourself in the new year, like being more patient. One who doesn’t consistently evolve throughout life can miss the wonderful moments revolving around them.
Don’t forget that nothing is more important than your health. Nothing.
Finally, HAVE FUN! If you’re not having fun, you’re not living life.
Have a great holiday season and a vibrant 2012.
Happy Gswede Sunday!
