As we move through the holiday season each year, it’s easy to get caught up in the stress of schedules, gift buying, rushing to get through items on our lists, etc. It can be overwhelming and frustrating — not at all representative of the season!
I try to be mindful, especially throughout December and into January, of the blessings that exist in my life, and thank those who make my work easier:
- Tenants who pay their rent in a timely manner and keep their places clean
- Contractors who are reliable, show up on time and don’t charge me outrageous prices for their services
- Business associates who respect me enough to refer others to me
- My friends and family who lend a listening ear after a particularly difficult day, and who love me “no matter what”
Life is tough. But in a sense, struggles and loss help us appreciate and savor the things that really matter. So take a minute and think about the people who matter in your work/personal life. And thank them. 🙂
Onward and upward!
And a happy, prosperous 2016 to you all.
