This year has gone by so quickly. Ethan turned 6 months old on Dec. 6 and it just seemed like yesterday he was born. He’s got 2 teeth already and 2 more are about to come out!
Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, everyone is busy during this holiday season. Asides from gift shopping, the holidays are also a time of reflection and gratitude. We should be grateful and thankful for what we have and for what we learned.
Everyday I thank God for what He has blessed me with… I am so grateful for my beautiful and healthy family and for the gifts and skills that I am blessed with… As I reflect on my life, I remember that there was a time when I was just a shy quiet kid that had none of the things that I currently have today. I am who I am today ONLY because someone had given me his time and coached me and I am always grateful for that.
My gratitude also reminds me that I have to give more… cause it is only through giving that you find the real joys in life. I have to give others my time, give others my knowledge and to continue to give the leadership to help people fulfill their potential and live a better life.
Once you start giving, you will realize the joy of giving exceeds the joy of receiving.
As the 2011 ends, if you have not done so already, start thinking about your goals for 2012. Start thinking about NOT ONLY what you want… but how you can help others; how you can give more and how you can play a positive impact on other people’s lives.
The more you give, the happier you will get and the more you will love and enjoy the simple things in life.
