New Year – New Opportunities

As the bubbly beverages are shared tomorrow night, take a moment to reflect on the year gone by and the new year arriving at midnight. Look for the good things like what you have accomplished, how strong you’ve been, the generosity you’ve shown to others.

Then, on that positive note, look a head and plan to build on those things. Set a goal or ten for the coming. months. Maybe you’ll actually finish that project you’ve had in mind, possibly started, and abandoned because you’ve been “too busy”. Make time – for yourself and to be with those you care about. Be grateful for the good things, take care of yourself, and stop stressing about the things you can’t control.

Even though the cold outside is bitter, the sky is grey and the roads slippery at this time of year, slow down and look around. There is beauty in the simplest of things.  Even a dollar store plastic ornament takes on character and strength when you change the way you see it.

And now the boss (Harley), Joel and I wish you all a happy, healthy and successful 2018!

Bye Bye 2012 – Hello bright and better New Year

Joel moving snow

Mother Nature made it really easy to say “bye bye” to this year by dumping not one but TWO snowstorms on us, back to back, within a few short days. The latest one left 35+cm of the white stuff and now the strong winds and plummeting temperatures are a harsh reminder that this truly is winter here in Canada.

And so we all raise a glass and wish 2012 on its way while welcoming in what everyone hopes will be a bright and better New Year.

The end of one year and the start of another is a time for reflection on the past twelve months – its peaks and valleys. It is also a time for looking forward and planning for the coming year – what each of us can do to make it a better one for ourselves and for others.

For my friends, colleagues and family I wish that 2013 brings you health, prosperity, happiness and peace.
