Another wonderful year on Earth has passed us, bringing with it a variety of people, places, experiences, emotions and opportunities. Thinking back to NYE 1999 when everyone was afraid all the computers would crash at midnight, makes the year 2014 sound very futuristic. The thought of my children one day being amazed at the fact that mommy and daddy were born in the 1900s is also quite hysterical. Needless to say, time flies whether you’re having fun or not. So why not just have fun? Be your best this year by setting goals and working diligently to achieve them, treasure the time you spend with family and friends, count your blessings and make everything you can – make out, make dinner, make fun of yourself, make amends, make money just don’t make EXCUSES. The new year comes with a fresh opportunity to start anew – new job, new attitude, new body, new home, new you. The choice is yours but the time to start is absolutely NOW.
So, as the days pass on and the excitement of the new year fades, life sets in and we all return to the grind, never lose sight of your resolutions and goals for the year. Make sure you have a constant reminder of your dreams whether it be in the form of a picture, a mantra or an item that acts as a symbol (bracelet/stone etc). We all try our very best to keep the promises we’ve made to ourselves but inevitably, as humans, we will falter at times. The important thing is to resist the urge to beat yourself up and just get right back into the swing of things. Slip up for a moment but don’t hesitate and whatever you do – don’t give up. Enjoy the ride whether it’s a Bentley or the Griswold’s family station wagon; Attitude is Everything!
