I wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe holidays this year. It’s been a pretty hectic and stressful year but we’re nearing the end and hopefully the important things in your life, like your relationships with your family and friends, can be a guiding light in the chaos. At the end of the day, we do all this, all the investing, all the retirement planning, and all the long hours at work, so we can be financially stable and provide for our loved ones. We work so we can live, we don’t live so we can work. While it’s hard to see that when we have our heads down in June, racing towards the finish line so many months away, it’s much easier to do that over the holidays regardless of what you observe.
Turn off the blackberries, shut off the computer, kick off those boots, and hang up your jacket, it’s time to grab a beer (or a glass of wine or a cup of eggnog) and spend some time with the people who love you for who you are and not how much you add to the bottom line. 🙂
We’ll be taking the rest of the day and tomorrow off but be back on Friday with a lighthearted holiday Your Take, something I hope you’ll contribute to if you find yourself on the Interwebs on Friday. If not, I’ll see you all on Monday!
