A TIME TO REFLECT
As I reflect on the year and what is most important to me, I encourage you to do the same. Share your appreciation with the ones you love.
This year represented the first full year of my wife and I living in our new home together. One of the things we did to commemorate this was add a garden. In the spring, we ended up planting the garden a little late, but we got it done. Over the summer, we tended to it and watched it evolve. We watched as dirt gave way to a bounty of crops. I remember seeing the butternut squash take off. Maybe it was our love. Maybe it was the manure we got from a local farmer. Maybe it was a bit of both. But boy did it grow. As more plants started to bear fruit, we knew we would have plenty to eat. We even had to give a lot of it away. By the time fall arrived, our table was stocked, and so were the tables of our friends and families. Fall began to wind down. The garden entered its resting phase, and crops became few and far between. Tending to this garden was a lot of fun. There is something truly special
about cultivating your own food. It’s enjoyable and healthy.
In many ways, that garden was like life. Each season comes with expectations and a certain energy. In the summer, we’re active. And then, as winter arrives, we slow down and the season can serve as time of rejuvenation and reflection. As many of you know, much of my life is focused on six pillars: spirituality, family, health, career, philanthropy, and finances. During this time of year, I spend time reflecting on these pillars and what they have meant to me. In particular, I focus on family and philanthropy. I look to those I know and love, and I look to the community for ways I can give back. To that end, I recently joined a 501(c) (3) organization called the Society of Financial Awareness, or SOFA. I’m actually in the process of setting up a local chapter for our community. SOFA is dedicated to teaching everything from financial planning to investing.
They bring classes to companies and communities to foster greater financial awareness. As I reflect on the year and what is most important to me, I encourage you to do the same. Share your appreciation with the ones you love. Consider what is most important to you. As 2017 comes to end, think about what went well this year. For me and Cornerstone Wealth, we brought on a new team member and we’re working to find another CPA. We continued to serve our clients and guide them through a year of relatively low volatility. Looking forward, we’re excited to add more resources and talent to the team to serve you even better. But more on that next month! From your team at Cornerstone Wealth Group, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season and happy New Year!
