This is the time of year where things slow down a bit and it gives us the opportunity to reflect upon all of the fortunate things that have happened this year and to also think upon the things that are not so fortunate. The unfortunate things are the ones that actually make us who we are today. It’s like fire that molds iron. The hot flames melt it down and once the ore has cooled it is not the same as it was before when the fire melted it. It sounds like a cliche’ but the things that sound cliches’ are the ones that have been passed down from the beginning of time and are based in truth.
I am a witness to this personally. The things that have challenged me the most have made me sharper, stronger, wiser and more grounded than all of my success. It makes success feel even better! I look at things differently and with deeper eyes. So if you are not where you want to be, no worries! The Universe always gives us the opportunity to start all over. So never give up on your dreams and goals.
Thanksgiving is about eating good food but lets not forget about how blessed we are and lets give thanks for all of the wonderful things and people that God has blessed us with. We may not be where we want to be but we are where God needs us to be in order to be the best that we can be for our families, our country and ourselves.
Enjoy Living The Dream!
