No dream not fulfilled...
It’s the 24th December 2014, and like many families around the world, we are gathered in one place to celebrate Christmas.
While I don’t necessarily think that Christmas is a good excuse to get together with family, preferring to take the one of day of the year off the calendar and instead spending that time giving to others and serving those less fortunate – I am grateful.
My life is blessed in so many ways and enriched by those around me. I am grounded by family and friends, and always aware that there are people around me that will be there no matter what.
Fortunately, I have never had the ‘no matter what’ scenario making me feel more appreciative of my life than ever before. As I get older, I seem to hear so many more stories of people that are not well, have lost their fortune or passed under unfortunate circumstances.
With the weeks leading up to the festive season a little different from years before, I ponder the world we live in and how we can actually move forward all contributing meaningfully to safety, love and prosperity.
2015 will be a year of wellbeing; health, spirituality, positive influences and getting in touch with the person who will take me through the rest of my life.
Being in my early forties, I have reflected life and its purpose more than ever before. Realizing that there is no obstacle that cannot be overcome, no dream not fulfilled and happiness in places that you least expect – I am coming into my own.
If you are an entrepreneur like me, you may find that this time of year is imperative to ‘free thinking’ and goal setting. It gives us time to stop, smell the roses and explore possibilities.
In the past few weeks Marketing Eye has gone through a growth spurt like never before. I ask myself “what downturn” because I am certainly not feeling it.
As businesses mature and while it is too early to say that mine is in this position, it certainly has made significant steps to be so – I am able to sit back in my chair.
There are no early mornings that I must be at work, nor late nights burning the midnight oil.
While true love may have eluded me, friendships certainly haven’t. I, like most, have had fair weather friends, or people that bring negativity into my life. But I am more capable than ever before to separate myself from those who don’t make a positive impact on my life.
So the people who surround me today, are people I want to continue to walk through that journey of life with and who all bring something meaningful to the table.
Which brings me to you… what have seen in the past few months, and are you reflecting on business and life?
