2010 Holiday Season

This year has certainly been a challenging year - to say the least. With every challenge, however, there is always an opportunity. As the year draws to a close it's time to start thinking about the new year and new opportunities. Keep that thought in mind as we begin the 2010 holiday season.

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and it brings with it mixed emotions. I am thankful for the time I will spend with family and friends. I am thankful for the food that will be served. I am thankful for all my clients, colleagues, and students and I am thankful to be here on this earth at this momentous time of rapid and progressive transition in our history.

I do find that the end of the year is an exciting time and a sad time for me. It's exciting as I look to the possibilities and it is sad as I say goodbye to the events of the year (great business opportunities gained and lost; experiences good and some not so good, family members who have passed on, victories and disappointments) and the list goes on and on.

The cycle of life is interesting, isn't it? So many births and deaths....beginnings and endings...

As 2010 draws to a close, what new beginnings are waiting for you? What do you need to bring to an end this year? What are you thankful for and how will 2011 be different?

Let's begin this 2010 holiday season with a sincere appreciation for the memories of 2010 and a ferocious appetite for the possibilities of 2011!!

Peace and best wishes!
