“The inventory process and stepping back in your life can sometimes be a very dark process. But it also can be extremely funny and surprising.” ~ Craig Charles
As we zoom toward the end of ’13, many doing that end-of-year inventory. But I advise not just looking at the lack. We need to look at what we gained this year.
I find people are usually pretty hard on themselves, and start the lists with, “well, I didn’t accomplish X this year.” Okay, maybe you didn’t. But unless you sat on the couch and watched TV all year, you accomplished something.
And frankly, if you sat on the couch and watched TV all year, you must have made some kind of record or something. Or at the very least learned a fact or two, right? (I have a friend who says that I’m so optimistic that if a nuclear bomb went off in my back yard, I’d say, “Oh, great! Now I don’t have to mow the lawn anymore!” I’m not that optimistic, but I certainly will dig deep for the one nugget of good in a situation.)
So as you go through that inventory, here’s to a smile, a laugh or even a full blown chuckle.
