I hope that you are spending some quality time with your friends, family and yourself during this holiday season!
Thoughts from Joyce
I was speaking to my son, Ron Weiss (RonWeissAttorney.com) about life the other day. He came up with a simple yet important idea that is a good reminder for all of us. This coming year let’s do our best to appreciate what we have in our life. We need to stop comparing our lives to others on their success either with family or work.
Social media does not help when we see the trips, family photos, promotions, etc from our friends. “The grass has always been greener” when we look at others. It does not have to be this way. The moment we start looking at our reality and not making comparisons to others is the moment that we start enjoying our life.
Family, friends, and clients are three areas in my life that I NEVER take for granted. It takes time, compromise, tough conversations, and positive energy to create these valuable relationships.
Joyce Gets Real
I can hear some of you say, “Joyce, I know this but my relative is so down and compares his or her life to others while ignoring the positives.”
Believe me, we all have friends and relatives who are down and out at times and who need a gentle reminder (ok not always gentle) on this important subject. We all need a push at times and that’s why inspirational books, quotes, and trainers help others find joy in their life.
I will include some of my favorite motivational quotes and posters for the next few posts that you can share with those who need to hear this message.
Ron Weiss, I thank you for your gentle reminders to your mom at times to keep me on track. That’s what families and good friends do. We support and help each other when we are down and out or during positive moments.
