The holidays are here! Time for celebrations and good cheer!
It is the season when we gather with family and friends to acknowledge our blessings and remember those no longer with us. It is also the season to give yourself the gift of presence, both personally and professionally.
Love thyself and love others, in both word and deed. Give yourself and grant others grace; this time of year can be stressful and filled with a range of emotions. Know that you are loved and tell others you love them too.
Set goals and make a plan to be successful in the coming year. Stop to think about your most significant accomplishments and disappointments of the year. Commit to writing your goals for 2020. What is one thing you will start doing, stop doing, and continue doing to reach these goals?
Give more than you receive. Serving others can not only provide a sense of purpose, it also helps counteract the effects of stress, anger, and anxiety. Volunteer Houston is a great place to find the perfect way to give your time to those in need. They also have a special Holiday Project!
This year I will remember my Grandma who passed in September. I also give thanks for the countless memories I’ve made with family and friends. I stop to acknowledge the many clients who entrust me to help guide their businesses to success. And my daily gratitude goes to my very best friend, my wonderful husband. Indeed, I am blessed!
Best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful holiday season.
