honoring 2008

Champagne toast Is it possible that yet another year has passed us by, relegated to the annals of history forever more?  I increasingly realize how quickly time flies and how fleeting time is.  So little time to truly create ones vision, to manifest possibility, to make the difference only you can make.

On the next blog, I will ask this question:  What will you create in 2009?  We'll explore the difference between creating your life and simply managing a "to do" list but for today I'd like to know how you would assess 2008.

Was it a great year? OK? Life altering?

The news media tells us everyday that, for most people, 2008 was not a good year – at least financially.  Banks failed, the real estate market remained flat, foreclosures were at a record high, the big three automakers are failing.

Is that true for you?

Whether the overview is great or not, what have you learned?  Take some time to think about the lessons gained in 2008.  Perhaps you can now acknowledge your perseverance, your courage, your grace under fire. Perhaps its your creativity, the love that surrounds you, a positive attitude.  Did you learn patience, assertiveness, confidence?

Savor those lessons.  They are some of your greatest gifts.   Sometimes we must look back to go forward , just be careful not to get stuck!

Now, what will you create in 2009?

You were born to be great.

YES, you can!
