Well, the end of the year is upon us, just two more weeks of Wednesdays, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. We’ve had 50 weeks to work on those resolutions we fervently, with good intentions, sweated over, worried over and stumbled over. We had 50 weeks to look out for our fellow man, to reach out to help someone, to make others feel good about themselves. We’ve had 50 weeks to make our way in the big wide world, go to our jobs, raise our children, pets or spouses.
We’ve realized our attitudes make up quite a large percentage of how our lives appear to us. Bitter, biting, sour or better, bigger, sunny, it is all up to us. Our outlook greatly increases how the world sees us too-we’ve had 50 weeks to change for the better, see the sunny side of life, look at the world through clear and innocent eyes. People give what they get and get what they give, in attitude, personality, service.
At the end of the year, we look back to see how we did, what we can do better and what we will improve upon. What did I see this year? I saw a world struggling with change in all arenas of life, social, personal, artistic; struggling with natural resources in all it’s forms-coal, oil versus wind and solar; struggling with poverty versus plush. I saw how power can corrupt people and businesses, housing and service personnel.
All we can do is look beyond and into the next year with all the promises it brings. I wish for you a happy, healthy Christmas and a wealthy new years.
