I am always amazed when a year ends and another suddenly arrives! They say (whoever ‘they’ are), that time flying by is a sign of getting older – so I have aged a LOT lately!
I love the end of the year; it’s a chance to reflect on everything that has happened over the past 12 months and a terrific opportunity to consider what’s to come. Certainly, most of us experienced a great deal of change in 2015 and if you are anything like me, you probably found these changes to be challenging.
However, as an occupational therapist, I am reminded that I need to find a balance.
I may complain, and think about how things “used to be”, but at the same time, change can be good. Often, it can energize us and force us to consider doing things differently.
I am reminded of a quote. No idea where I heard it, but I think it is appropriate for all of us in these challenging times:
“Most people HATE the idea of trying new things unless there’s a guaranteed payoff. People who operate under that mindset will NEVER live up to their full potential.”
So I say, bring on 2016 and everything that comes with it! Who knows what heights we might reach!
