All the Best in 2017

Sometimes when I am in a tiny rage over something, or worried sick, or anxiously trying to meet a deadline, I try to remind myself of some wisdom that I've picked up from somewhere (again, honestly can't remember from where I gleaned this) and that is to ask myself, will this matter in an hour, in a day, in a month, in a year? I do well to put things into perspective, let things go, move on, remember that "this too shall pass". 

For 2017 I wish to enjoy the small things, appreciate that which surrounds around me, live in the present, and treat myself with the same respect that I treat others.

For my family, my friends, my colleagues, myself, and everyone who pops in to see what's happening in my world, I hope that the new year brings the basics that truly matter: good health, love, confidence, recognition, appreciation, honesty, gratitude, and contentment.

Happy New Year, everyone!

  6. I often use that strategy myself. After all if I stop to think, can I remember the dead lines, issues and problems I was facing this time last year? No I can't. Happy New Year to you too!

  15. That has been my mantra for years and I have shared it with lots of parents...especially those dealing with teenagers...will this matter in and hour, a day, a week? If it is non-consequential it is not worth getting into a tussle over it....make a stand on the BIG important things in life-things that will make a life time effect.

    Happy, Happy New Years to you, Jenn! xo Diana
