Every year I make a few resolutions. At the time, I honestly believe I will follow through. Of course, like many people, I always fall short. This year I vow to not beat myself up and promise to be the best me I can be.
The older I get, the more I look back on my life and see the mistakes I’ve made. In relationships, in business, in life. I’ve grown from these mistakes and now call them learning experiences.
- What I’ve learned is you can’t please everyone and that’s okay.
- I’ve learned that you may have hurt someone’s feelings so bad and that after several years, they still can’t forgive you and that’s okay. You have to forgive yourself, find peace in your apology and know how bad it hurt that person. It takes time to forgive yourself and finally let those things go.
- I’ve learned that in business you just have to do the best you can and treat people how you would want to be treated. You have to treat your employees like gold because they are. They are worth so much to me and are priceless.
Starting a new year and new beginnings I realize I am truly happy in my life and it’s taken me this long to really look back over my life experiences and accept it for what they are. Once you do that, you will realize your life is so amazing. I couldn’t be happier and feel so blessed. So my New Year’s resolution is to continue to look forward and to continue to grow from my mistakes. I will accept the things I can’t control and I will wake up every day happy to be alive because I am.
Happy New Year friends. Much love to you all!
