I awoke this morning to a subtle reminder to make every minute in your life count. I have a Google Alert set-up for ‘Shannon Seery’ as this last year of blogging has certainly taught me how important it is to monitor your online reputation and personal brand. This morning there was an alert waiting for me. It was a link to an obituary for a Shannon Seery of Bourne, Mass.
There’s nothing like seeing an obit with your name on it first thing on New Year’s Day to make you take stock of how you are living your life. Here’s to a New Year filled with Love and Laughter!
Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.
We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”
