Chris' Corner: Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!  2011 is over, 2012 is here!

A New Year symbolizes rebirth, a new start... a time to wipe the slate clean and start again.  Today I will spend some time with friends and family and celebrate.

I will also take some time and reflect on the trials and tribulations of 2011.  I will treasure the good memories and remember and learn from the experiences that challenged me. 

I am optimistic about 2012.  I feel our foundation is strong.  My father used to tell me that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and I feel I have identified the areas in my life and in our life that I want to concentrate on improving.

For the world, I wish for peace, internally and between each other, and a greater sense of empathy and generosity from those who can for those in need.

This year, I wish for you, that your "dreams" come true.

Chris, that's exactly the way I look at every new year.  I don't care how bad the previous year was, the new one holds the promise of better days, and I trust this will be your best year yet!

People Like You

A brand new year!
A clean slate on which to write
our hopes and dreams.
This year:
Less time and energy on things;
More time and energy on people.
All of life’s best rewards,
deepest and finest feelings,
greatest satisfactions,
come from people--
people like you.

Happy New Year!
