During the slow times at work around the Christmas Season, I always find myself reflecting on the past year. I love looking back at photos collected over the past 12 months and reminisce.
When I look back on my 2013, I find that I actually improved more as a person then anything else…
Whether it was trying something that freaks you out:
Turning a thought into a reality:
Going to far-off places that some only dream about:
helping people show-off their passions:
Or growing up with my son as his Dad:
I’m learning that it’s the little things that matter most. Like simply hanging out with friends chatting about movies over sushi…or finding a note your son left you when you least expected it:
While I’ve been told I am difficult to deal with from time to time, not a day goes by where I’m not thankful for my friends and family…and I consider my close friends my family! I would be nothing without them….I’d be broken without them. In the words of Franklin Covey, put first things first…and family always comes first.
Some advice for everyone this Holiday Season, no matter how many hats you wear…regardless of the project you’re working on or what you’re trying to accomplish as a goal…always make the time for the little things; it’s what keeps you grounded!
In the words of the great philosopher of our modern age, “Caring about one person can be scary; Caring about a group of people can be absolutely horrifying. But if you can’t say it this time of year, when can you say it…I love you guys!” – Jeff Winger
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my family!
2014 is going to be a big year…
