Happy New Year!

It's New Year's Eve, a time to reflect on the year that's ending and look forward to the year that's approaching.

Most people will make New Year's Resolutions.  I used to do that, but I stopped many years ago.  I never seemed to be able to keep them.  Then I'd feel bad about myself.  I don't think that's the intention of making resolutions, so I just stopped doing it.  One of my all time favorite quotes is from "Star Wars".  Yoda said, "Do or do not.  There is no try."  So I can't even say I'll TRY to do something.

One of my Facebook friends posted an idea that I think I can actually do.  Start by getting a jar.  All year when something good, nice or special happens, write it down and put it in the jar.  Next New Year's Eve, open the jar and read about all the wonderful things that occurred during the year.

Isn't that a great idea?  Wouldn't that be a fabulous way to end one year and begin the next?  On New Year's Eve, by reading the notes from your jar, you'll be reflecting only on the positive, feel good things  that happened during the year.  You can then take those positive, good feelings into the new year.  I can't imagine a better plan.  So that's what I'm doing this year.

However you decide to celebrate, I wish you a prosperous, abundant, FABULOUS 2013.  Happy New Year!!!

Love,  Paula
