Reflect upon your present blessings — of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
— Charles Dickens

Time and sleep have a way of changing your perspective. As we sit and reflect on the past nine months of the year, we realise how circumstances can change in a matter of seconds. Our reaction to the change is what matters most.

September has come to a close, leaving us with three more months in which to accomplish the goals we set out to reach by year's end. Some goals we might have already realised whilst others will be left incomplete by the time the clock strikes midnight at the verge of 2016.

As the season of thankfulness approaches, we should reflect upon all of the good which has come our way this past year instead of all the bad which has transpired. In the end, we will find going through the difficult times makes us more appreciate all the good which has come our way.
