As the last month of the year has arrived, I have enjoyed taking the time to reflect back on this year and write down many great things I have accomplished as well as things I could have done better. I think sometimes we get caught in the cycle of life; work, school, kids, relationships and just the everyday busy that we create for ourselves and we tend to make up excuses as to why we can’t be better or choose to not to. At some point, we have to stop and be grateful and appreciate everyday we were able to wake up and say good morning and serve a purpose. Gratefulness can be anything: thankful to workout, eat, grocery shop, share my opinion, have a job, have a house, and have the opportunity to learn. For me, life is all about progress not perfection. If you are striving it means you are improving and growing to be a better person. Take some time to reflect on the last year and even better get excited for what IS in store for the next one! You are your thoughts, so think GREAT ones. Happy December!
