13 Dec A time to reflect on the year that was 2012
I am not sure if it’s an age-related issue, but each year seems to go by faster and 2012 has certainty done that for me. Perhaps it’s because, I have just had another birthday and the numbers are telling me I am getting closer to retirement and there are more years behind me than in front.
It is almost time to turn off the laptop, forgot about your emails and focus on more important and enjoyable ways to spend your day.
Not sure about you, but I find myself this time of the year reflecting on the good things that have been achieved, the bad and sad things that have occurred and the ugly things we all try to avoid.
Here are some questions, that you may wish to ponder:
Did you achieve the goals you set out to achieve?
Are you financially in a better position than 12 months ago?
Did you cross something off your bucket list?
What was the most enjoyable event for you during the year?
Was there balance in your lifestyle?
If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make any?
What are you most grateful for?
What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things that we don’t do?
Which is worse, failing or never trying?
Finally, in closing for 2012, I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas. Have an enjoyable holiday and a prosperous 2013.
Warmest regards and best wishes,
