Some thoughts I wanted to write down...
I know a lot has happened for us all this year, be it in our personal lives or in what has and is happening in the world around us.
There are so many things we can't control in life- but there are also many things that we can. Let's make sure to take hold of these things.
Reflect on and remember the good in life, even the smallest things. Pull through life's trials, and learn/grow from any and all experiences. Consider the good as advice, and the bad as lessons of what not to do. Always learn.
And no matter how many things may be out of our control...know that, at the very least, there is and always will be so much that we can control within ourselves
. Be the example you wish to see, regardless of what anyone else is doing.
With each year, it feels like time passes faster and faster. Heck, I still can't believe it's already December! I've realized this past year more than ever how valuable time really is. Let's value the days we have, to the best of our ability.
It's easy to get too caught up in life and overlook these things
, but holidays and often-broken New Years Resolutions aren't the only times that should make us stop and remember...appreciating the bonds in our lives, learning from both our own experiences and the experiences of others, and reflecting on any and all good we have in our lives, are always.
