New Year Reflections

Wow! A new year is again upon us. I'm not big on New Year Resolutions, although I always have the old standbys in the back of my mind-- you know, the ones about losing weight, being more active, finishing projects that have been started for years now (like certain websites...) and the list goes on.

This year seems to be a little different though-- different in that there is much uncertainty. Uncertainty, but new-found hope. The economy woes have hit home, but along with that comes a time to simplify and take notice of what really matters-- like 4 precious ones running around. That's what counts. It's a good thing to take time to reflect on things like: do we really need digital cable at $75 plus a month? Or would little minds be better impacted by playing a game together? What junk can we cut out of our lives? How resourceful can we become? How can we simplify our rat-raced pace? It's in seemingly difficult times that humans are forced to grow.

It's exciting to see what's ahead. We're looking forward to a year of possibilities! Happy New Year to you all! Here's to peace, prosperity, and health. And losing weight, getting active... :)

PS- Take this advice: do NOT stand on double-stacked buckets. It could just ruin your day-- or more- if you're lucky :)
