|This year Chris and I celebrate Christmas with our families in Edmonton and then head back to Miami to ring in the New Year. Casey is doing the opposite, already in Florida soaking up sun and then heading back to Ottawa for the first of the year. Getting warmed up puts us all in a great frame of mind for when I return to work in 2012!
I wanted to take a minute to wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Blessed Eid or just Happy Holidays! Regardless of what or even if you celebrate, now is the time to relax, take a break from work for a couple of days and reflect on your successes from this past year. During this busy time, remember to take care of yourself – mind, body and soul, so you can fully enjoy the holidays with loved ones and go back to work full steam ahead in January.
The holidays for me are about traditions, celebrating old ones and creating new ones. An old tradition I’m re-creating for the first time with my niece is taking in a Christmas performance. This year I’m seeing the Velveteen Rabbit. It’s being performed at the historic Fort Edmonton Park on Christmas Eve and will certainly put me in the Christmas mood!
My 94 year old Grandmother – who flew in from Vancouver – is also joining us. If my Granny at 94, still living independently and flying on her own isn’t inspiration enough that you can live a long healthy and prosperous life, how about I have her send you an email from her Mac laptop?! (We bought her one for her 90th birthday). I’ll be sure to send you pictures of our 4 generations Christmas dinner in January!
The holidays are also a great time to show appreciation and be with those you cherish so I hope you too are spending time with those who you love and are in a place you can relax in. Remember that this is a time of year to enjoy yourself. So turn off your computer, throw out that diet, have another piece of chocolate, grab that glass of wine, and sit by the fire and do nothing!
Colleen…since I can’t be with you in person, I want to say thanks for being a part of our lives. Chris, Casey and I appreciate your participation and thank you for the support of the work we do at Engage. I believe in your success and know that 2012 will be another great sales year for all of us.
