I wanted to choose just one photo for today. I think this one pretty much sums it up. That's me, on Christmas Day........while at a family get-together.........I manage to sneak in some time to work.
This Year Technology has Transformed My World.
In an instant I can go from leisure family fun to serious work matters. In just a matter of seconds I can be confirming ship dates with Vietnam and China and then go back to my glass of wine and gift opening.
This world we live in is pretty amazing, but at the same time it's been truly very hard for me to find a balance between work and "play." I like to think I try my hardest and make every effort possible to step away and remember the work will be there when I return, but it is a daily battle for me that I hope to improve on in 2012. For me, written reminders help: a post-it note on my computer, a message on the visor in my car and the same on on my fridge at home. I know if I can find a way to constantly remind myself that I will continue to make an effort.
I'm not huge on New Year's Resolutions because I believe as people we constantly change and evolve. But, this time of year is a great time to recognize your weaknesses and try to forgive yourself and others, and start fresh. Forgiveness stems from love. And love is the greatest gift we can give in 2012. Love holds with it just about every.single.great gesture, prayer and root of happiness.
Give some Love in 2012. It's the best gift you can give!
Thank you for being a fan of mine and loyal reader, and for making this another fabulously successful year for me and Bella Blvd! Happy New Year!
