The excitement of the Christmas Season is over. Or is it? The thrill can continue through 2016. What would you like to do for yourself? What goals do you have to enhance your personal life? Think hard. This is more than a New Years resolution apt to be broken in a few weeks.
Allow me to challenge you with a few ideas: sponsor a child in the US or overseas; volunteer to be a child advocate; volunteer to work with adoptable animals or, better yet, adopt a shelter animal; deliver baked goods to a neighbor; tip a little more to your hairdresser, server or delivery person. Later in the year, participate in Spencer's 2016 Holiday Family Adoption or send an inspirational or funny card to a recovering soldier.
When you bless others, it comes back to you. But that doesn't mean you forget about you! Absolutely not! Treat yourself special by making time for yourself to do something you'd enjoy. Accomplish any personal goals you have for yourself and feel good about them. Feel pretty...feel handsome...feel great and feel valued!
Determine that 2016 will be better than ever despite any obstacles that come along. Feel it, live it and breathe it. Make it contagious! Wow! I can feel it already! 2016 is going to be a great year!
Happy New Year, everyone!
