You’re Halfway There


Today is July 2nd, which means that 2012 is halfway over.  Six months ago, we were all creating our New Year’s resolutions and developing our goals for the upcoming year.  Now we’re in the month of July, enjoying our summer and preparing ourselves for the last half of 2012.  Some say that the world will end in December, while others still have faith in a bigger future.  I, honestly, think that the world has many more years to give before its end; however, I am a bigger believer in achieving your goals no matter what.  Right now you might look back at the first half of this year thinking that you could have done so much more.  You may be nowhere near close to reaching your goals or maybe getting there has been a lot harder than you thought.  Either way, the year isn’t over yet and neither is your life.  You can still get to where you want to be as long as you put your mind to it and put everything you have into it.  You still have half of 2012 left, so make the most out of it.
