Another amazing week and it’s almost the end of January 2017 and the year of the Fire Rooster is upon us! The team at Visa Solutions had a busy month and it looks like the year is going to be another cracker.
This past week had everything; celebrations of birthdays; the passing of family members; Australia Day celebrations and lots of catchups with clients and colleagues.
Birthdays are a great time to celebrate and reflect on another year past; in this instance our team member is almost 20 years younger (as she reminded me) and I found myself reflecting on how much can be achieved over that time, most importantly I saw my own children grow into young adults over that time period and looking back it is surprising how fast time can pass.
We also experienced the passing away of a family member’s parent and that was also a time for reflection on the many hard decisions that are involved when the elderly have reached their time in life and the stress and grief that the family go through at that time.
Australia Day 2017 was one of the hottest on record but that did not stop the celebrations with Aussies heading to the beaches and pools to celebrate the day. It’s a wonderful day to celebrate the achievements of many Australians and the growth in the nation that has become the home for millions of people from around the globe.
Bring on February!
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!!
