Hello friends.

As we flip to a new page of the calendar, we see that November is already here. Where does

the time go? As they say, time flies when you’re having fun, so if you feel that time is

passing by quickly, it probably means that you are happy.

Do you ever think of your life as a book? The days, months and years are like the chapters in

a book, each one introducing us to new adventures, people and mysteries.

However, amidst the hustle and bustle, we often overlook the beauty that is all around us.

While walking this morning, I took notice of the crispness of the morning air and how the

beautiful blue sky was a canvas painted with the leaves on the trees, still green but on the

verge of changing color. This all happened before arriving at the office and starting the day

with a steaming cup of coffee in the quiet serenity of the morning.

With only around sixty days remaining this year, I challenge you, and myself, to find

pleasure in the little things that surround us every day. The right mindset is usually all that is

needed to see that anything can be an ingredient to happiness. That could be the warmth of

smile, the comfort of friends and family, or the satisfaction of personal accomplishments.

As we step into this month, let's look at it through a lens of positivity. Set yourself a 30-day

challenge, nurture your dreams, and celebrate even the smallest victories. Sometimes the

victory is simply getting out of bed in the morning!

As Marcus Aurelius succinctly put it, “The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of

your thoughts.” Let’s think good thoughts this month and see how we feel at the end of the

month. That is a 30-day challenge I have set for myself and I hope you will choose one that

fits the month that you aspire to have. Remember, the month is going to fly by anyway, so

why not make them 30 happy days?

Wishing you health and happiness always.
