The countdown has begun - we are officially 17 days away from Christmas! As 2017 comes to a close, this is always the best time to take a step back and look at your life during the past year. What were your wins, losses, successes, failures, highs and lows? Who in your life contributed to those times - both the good and bad? Are you living your best life as your best SELF?
We know that our lives are meant to be lived well with energy, joy and excitement but we also know that the coarse of our lives are shaped more like roller coasters with twists and turns you never see coming. So look around - who are the people around you that lift you up during the hard times? Unfortunately, sometimes the people closest to us in life take the most advantage and chip away at your armor rather than building you up. As you're reading this, if someone popped into your head and you are aware of someone who is taking away rather than adding value to your life, it may be time to reassess the relationship. The people, processes and things in your life should be adding to your happiness and helping you reach your goals.
The holidays are a magical time with friends and family - a time to stop and smell the hot cocoa. However, it can also be the hardest time of year for those going through tough times or feeling the loss of family members, etc. No matter where you are this season, take time to fill yourself up - invest in yourself and get ready for a clean slate in 2018!
