Here at the turning of the year, there is time to pause, breathe, and reflect. There is much to be grateful for, take time to count the ways. There may be much that was challenging, look for the growth. There may have been tragedy and heartache, honor the feelings. There was much that was joyful and fulfilling, celebrate the moments. There may be something left undone, commit to completion. There may be much to do this coming year, let it awaken your strength, determination, creativity, and contribution. Reflection brings clarity, perspective, and understanding. Pause and breathe.
