NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS CHECK IN

So January 1st came and went. Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? How are you coming along with those? If you are tackling them without a problem, bravo! For those of you who are having trouble achieving them please consider this:
  • ·         don’t be so hard on yourself
  • ·         pick, small attainable targets that move you closer to your goals
  • ·         give yourself rewards for small achievements

Remember, do not get upset that you are not where you want to be. Maybe what you wanted to achieve was too big. Instead focus on the progress that you are making.

SPREAD SOME HOLIDAY CHEER

As we celebrate the holidays please remember to somehow someway enjoy yourselves. Also see if there is a way that you can perform a kind act for someone else. I plan to dress my puppy, Molly, in a Santa suit and hat. Then we will head to a nearby nursing home to spread some cheer.

Wishing you a joyous holiday season and a healthy, happy, prosperous new year.
