I would like to start this New Year by thanking everyone for making 2009 a success for the OLEHENRIKSEN brand. Over the years I’ve learned the key to my success is being able to create a loving atmosphere to those around me wherever I go. Here are a few tips on how to make your 2010 a joyous one.
At work: Give your coworkers a generous, heartfelt compliment and hug for a job well done. Work can be a stressful environment and it’s important to show appreciation for the team members you work with each day.
Everyday: Acknowledge a woman on the street because she looks fabulous, or help a struggling passenger retrieve their luggage in the overhead compartment on a flight. It should always feel great to do good for others.
At home: Never take your loved ones for granted. Cook deliciously healthy meals if you have children or roommates. Couples dance to your favorite music at home if you are in a romantic relationship. My partner of 25 years, Laurence, frequently surprises me with romantic cards tucked away between my clothes in my luggage when I travel. The possibilities are endless, and that is the best part about it.
It’s true when the Beatles sing “All You Need is Love.” The need to give and receive love is something we all have in common regardless of race, religion or age. Here is a toast to love, and a happy New Year!
