2015 was a great year. It was also a challenging year. There were ups and downs. Goals met and goals missed. Things accomplished and things left unfinished.
The bad news is that I was responsible for all of that.
The good news is that I am also responsible for learning from all of it and then making the best of 2016!
To me, New Year’s Day is like being on top of a mountain. It is an amazing place to be and reflect on the journey you took to make it to the top! The beautiful view provides incredible perspective, clarity, and inspiration.
But on the other hand, it is a temporary stop. You can’t stay at the summit forever. Real life is back down in the valleys and plains. And so you embark on the path back down to embrace more of the adventure to come.
So from this New Year’s Day Summit, I see that 2016 is another year to grow and learn. It is 366 opportunities (it’s a leap year!) to enjoy the blessings of life and make the most of what has been given to us.
I’m looking forward to the journey!
