The holiday season is as much a time to celebrate as it is to reflect back on the year that was. For those people who are going in the right direction and are happy keep doing what you're doing. But for any individuals out there who may be feeling a bit down or underwhelmed by what you're currently doing I say take heed, perhaps I can help give you some perspective. 

I too would always get down on what I'd currently be doing. Saying I'm not doing enough or not trying hard enough. When I would step back and look at the year as a whole I would feel very differently. 

"We overestimate what we can accomplish in a day and underestimate what we can accomplish in a year"

So cut yourself some slack if you can honestly say you've moved forward this year. If you've checked something off your lifetime to-do list or started on the path to something bigger and better; you're set up to succeed in 2017. We all want to rush to the end, to the diploma or the lofty retirement when we should enjoy the process of getting there as much if not more than actually getting there. 

I am constantly grateful for all the down times because without that I would never full appreciate where I am and never forget where I was. This holiday season I fill myself with gratitude and appreciation for everything I have.

I don't need anything
