I’m not one for resolutions but I don’t want to leave 2017 without saying something to you so I’ll let my late uncles do the talking for me. Since they’re all passed this should be interesting. My mother’s three brothers were all characters and very different from one another—making them the best uncles ever and I loved each one dearly. You can take their advice into 2018 (or don’t) either way, they were awesome, and I wish you a bright, healthy, and Happy New Year!
From the oldest to youngest…
The Coach/Businessman who said, “Don’t let anyone just bring you a problem. They also need to show up with three possible solutions.”
The Cowboy who said, “Never follow a snake into its own hole.”
And the Hippy who said, “Give and keep it—to yourself.”
Love and Hugs and a Happy New Year!

“Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
I like that about spare moments.
If you want to do something to improve your happiness this year work everyday to be less judgmental.
If you have the chance to lift someone up — take it.
When things get difficult find a way to laugh.
Celebrate your wins and celebrate with your friends when they win.
People will mess up — forgive them.
You will mess up — forgive yourself.
When someone is speaking to you listen and listen well.
Everyone you know is more special than you know — treat them that way and watch the world change.
Time doesn’t stand still but sometimes we should.
I wish you genuine moments in the coming year — moments that will fill you with such joy, peace or happiness that they get placed securely in your hearts and minds forever. ❤
Happy New Year everyone! 🌟
