Well, we’ve made another trip around the sun together and I feel blessed as we start another trip. The New Year is like a Birthday and a time to celebrate and be grateful for all we have been given during the past year. I have many blessings to be thankful for including my new granddaughter Elle. I am also grateful that my family and I are in good health. I am grateful for our Leaf family and being able to support them through your hard work. We all rely on each other to support the whole. We all should be grateful for each team member that supports our individual efforts. Together as a team we accomplish things that none of us could accomplish on our own.
As musician Ray Wiley Hubbard said “The days my gratitude exceeds my expectations are wonderful days “. I encourage everyone to take the time to celebrate the accomplishments and blessings we have received over the past year. Identify the ones that you deem the greatest and try to nurture those accomplishments and relationships in the new year. The New Year is like the sun rising at the beginning of every day. It’s almost like we are given a fresh start to leave the disappointments behind and begin to live the life we aspire to. Like Willie said “I woke up not dead again today “. Each day is a blessing, and we know we are not promised tomorrow.
I encourage everyone then to wake up and grab life and make it better for all. Charge ahead as we are each responsible for our own life and choices we make. The opportunities are endless to make our individual lives better and it’s up to each individual to embrace them. Go forward then and grab the opportunities that present themselves. Have a great day, great month, and great year it’s up to you.
