New Year’s Resolution


Thought for the year:  Peace begins with a smile ~ Mother Teresa

My New Year’s resolution for 2012 is to be happy.  That’s it.  No losing 10 pounds, no developing an exercise program, no getting a grip on my finances, no lofty career goals, no looking for true romance. I’m just going to focus completely on being happy. Doing what makes me happy, being with those who make me happy, concentrating solely on acquiring the positive energy that makes me happy. And I believe that as I seek happiness, that which I attain will include all the things that are beneficial for my well being.

2012 is a fine number. It’s even, it’s round, and it’s going to be my year. The negative energy that has made the past few years so difficult is behind me now. It’s gone.  It has left the building. I recently heard someone describe another person as one who had been so unhappy for so long that they had lost the ability to be happy. That will never be a description of me no matter what adversity comes my way.

I hope you’ll join me this year in searching out the positive and turning your back on the negative. Because life was not created to be something you withstand or muddle through.  It was created to be enjoyed.  I finally get that now. So, I am moving forward into this brand new year of hope and possibility smiling ~ beaming, in fact!

 Happy New Year!  Happy 2012! Flash your pizzazz ~ Smile!
