NBC12 Viewpoint: Another year gone by

By: Kym Grinnage - email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - As we wrap up the year it's a good time to reflect on another year gone by and how did it change your life. It's a good time to take stock of what is important and what is not. It's also a good time to ask yourself if you did everything you said you would do this year, when you made those plans last year. I don't know about you, but I got some things off of the "To Do" list this year, but I left a few things undone. It always seems like the unfinished tasks are the ones you remember the most.

So what will be different next year? Will you be honest with yourself and do that extra something that you know you need to do? Are you going to sit down with a pad and list the things you know you do well, and the things you could do better? Will you set new goals and make a new plans? Will set new goals and make them bold? As you know: " A life well planned is a life well lived".

But what I like most about the end of one year and the beginning of another, is that no matter what happened last year, good or bad, you have a brand new opportunity and the slate is wiped clean. So if you didn't get it done, let it go! And if you got it done, do it again!

Anonymous once said: " Plan more than you can do, then do it. Bite off more than you can chew, then chew it. Hitch your wagon to a star, keep your seat, and there you are!"

From all of us at NBC12 Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!!
