Happy New Year!

Well, another year is here – 365 opportunities to smile, to love, to hope, to dream, to make amazing discoveries, and to live. I hope you do something great with the days ahead. There’s much more to life than ballgames and reality shows on the boob tube.

How did you spend New Year’s Eve? At a big party? With a small gathering of friends? Or maybe a quiet evening at home? We’re not party animals so why would we do anything but what we do almost every other night of the year? We did what we do every New Year’s Eve, we stayed home and enjoyed being together.

Do you make New Year’s resolutions? If so, what are they? I never do because I have enough failure in my life to deal with without adding self-imposed goals I cannot reach. To quote a line from an old Clint Eastwood movie, “a man has to know his limitations.” And do I ever have limitations!

We’re all starting the year with a clean slate, so forget those niggling little problems you’ve been dwelling on, get rid of that old baggage you’ve been carrying around, and concentrate on the good things in your life. I hope that 2019 holds much love, happiness, and good health for you and yours.

Now go spend time with your family, watch a football game or an old movie, or whatever puts a smile on your face. Because I can’t think of a better way to spend the first day of a new year than spending it with somebody you love.

Happy New Year, my friends.

Thought For The Day – I replaced my cat’s litter box with an Amazon box. Now when it’s full I just tape it up and put it on my front porch for someone to steal.

  1. Went to sleep early. Enjoyed a restful night. No New Year’s Resolutions. Enjoyed each day last year and will enjoy each day this year. Concentration on the positive. Look for the good and ENJOY small as well as large events. Happiness is a state of mind. SO BE HAPPY!!!!!!!!!

  2. Nick, I try to remember to face each day as if it is New Years Day. I try to learn from any mistakes and forgive myself, leave the “baggage” behind and go forth and explore the new possibilities ahead……

    I like to think that if we were perfect no one would tolerate us for long. I just make it easier for everyone else to accept imperfections.

  3. Like your first paragraph “365 opportunities—-”
    Can I share with family and friends giving you credit, please.

  4. Nick, Happy and healthy 2019 to you and Miss Terry.

  5. Very nice post and especially enjoyed your Thought for the day.

  6. Tanya, please feel free to share.
    Happy New Year!

  7. Glad you and Miss Terry had a Wonderful New Year’s Eve.
    We spent the evening around the Campfire freezing along with our neighbours in La Posa South LTVA outside of Quartzsite.
    I’ve made the same Resolution for years and have never broken it. “No Resolutions and to Enjoy Life to the best that we can.”
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It’s about time.
