Welcome Today Angela Austin

As the year comes to an end, it’s easy to look back and say what has not been done.  I’ve always felt like the finality of the year-end makes us feel like if we haven’t accomplished certain things by December 31st we’ll never accomplish them.  But, the reality of it all is that it’s simply not true.  How many times you heard or read or seen people hit rock bottom, and then just as Spring arrives…there is a spark, and from that spark comes new opportunities.

We all have lists:
·       Relationships
·       Exercise
·       New job
But, I want to focus on possibilities.  Not lists.
What really makes you happy?  There’s always something we feel that we have to do, so it stops us from doing what we really want to do.  What can you do for 8 hours a day 40 hours a week without getting tired or bored?  Friends and family have to send out a search party.  Food is stashed in a secret bunker.
If there was absolutely nothing holding you back, what would you do with the rest of your life?  My challenge to everyone is to search out what really brings you joy and take steps to accomplish it in 2011!  And keep trying in 2012, 2013, 2014, etc.  You get the picture.
