Bring it 2017! Happy New Year!

While 2016 was good for me, I sympathize and respect that 2016 (for lack of another word) sucked for many people. I hope that every one has a wonderful 2017 but the year changing isn’t going to miraculously make everything better. You create your own happiness.

It is well known I detest drama and I haven’t had an argument in years. I try to live my life with positive views, peace and love. 2015 I almost died. The first half of 2016 was the fight to remain alive. The 2nd half of 2016 was a whirlwind of truths dropping in my lap. I “could” focus on the negative but instead, I look back and see I’m still here, I learned a lot, I’ve grown a lot but more important…I created happiness for me and my family. “Bad” things are going to happen but that doesn’t mean I can’t make a bad story into a happy one. Happiness is a decision. In 2017, I hope more people decide to be happy and make it happen.

From my family to yours: we hope you and your family have much love, success and happiness in 2017! Happy New Year!
