So this year has been a whirlwind of fun. I have gotten to go to Las Vegas twice, Arizona and the Bahamas. I am grateful that I manifested the resources to do most of the things I set out to do this year. At the end of every year, I like to take a step back and look at the triumphs as well as losses and take an inventory of my life, relationships, etc.
I am grateful for my family
The cornerstone of everything I do in life is for the benefit of my wife Pamela and my two daughters Kaylee and Hannah. Without their love, understanding, patience and gentleness, I could not have come as far as I have. The older I get the more I realize just how precious time is. It’s the only thing in life that cannot be replaced. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.
While I have no regrets, I wish I had taken more time to enjoy the younger years with my girls and my wife. I sometimes feel like I missed out on a lot of opportunity to create memories with them. I now realize that while I missed the opportunities back then, I now have full control of creating memories from here on out.
I am grateful for my health.
I think that one of the greatest tragedies in life is when a person works their whole life trying to create their dream life and sacrifice their health during the process. I take a look around at all of the overweight people in this country and quite honestly it’s sickening.
I have taken the liberty of putting my health at the forefront of my daily routine. I started this over two years ago after waking up one day realizing that I was 15 pounds heavier then I should be. Needless to say, I got busy and created a 6 day a week habit. All it takes is a decision to do so. People who say they don’t have enough time are full of it and that is the story they are telling themselves.
What are some of the things you are grateful for this year? I would love to hear about them.
