New Year’s Resolutions

It’s a thorny subject. In the past I’ve made resolutions, but they’ve fallen by the wayside. All those goals and targets not achieved weigh heavily on me, and make me reluctant to start the process again. But it is a new year and I can’t help but want to start with a fresh perspective.

So this year I decided to keep it simple. The idea came to me in one of those Christmas crackers you have at the dinner table. You know, the ones with the paper hat, silly toy and fortune cookie kind of saying. Mine said “Just when you’ve learned to make the most of your life, most of your life is gone.”

Before Christmas I had lunch with a past client, a senior who moved into a Retirement Residence almost 2 years ago. Since then she has put her heart and soul into exploring and enjoying all the amenities that exist there. And it has worked. She couldn’t be happier. As we chatted I decided that she is my role model for ‘making the most of your life’. Making the most of my life will be my resolution for 2011. And in my role as a Seniors Move Manager I will also do everything I can to help my clients to make the most of their lives.

I think that this year I can and will make it happen!

    Right on!

    My word for 2011 is “focus”; focus on the event of the moment. That’ll help me make the most of my life. Thanks for the reinforcement.

    And, Happy New Year!

    Great Post – we see this with our clients all the time; the happiest ones are the ones that make the most of their lives and focus on what`s truly important.
