The space between Christmas and the New year has always been a period of reflection for me. As a younger person looking back on the year, I would focus on my list of shortcomings. Things I didn’t accomplish, and then put them on my list of resolutions for the New Year.
As I’ve gotten older I find that I focus less on what I didn’t do and more on what I’m grateful for. Grateful for those family members in my life who are loving and supportive. Blessed to have friends to laugh & cry with.
Thankful for the simple gifts each day has had to offer; sunrises, cool breezes, and the opportunity to begin again.
What has this year been like for you? What will you bring with you into the New Year?
Happy New Year
