Hopeful and Optimistic

January 8, 2017

While many are still whining about the election results, gnashing their teeth and hoping not to hear the Trump name mentioned ( yet bringing it up themselves at every opportunity), I’m feeling hopeful and optimistic. And, with that optimism comes a vision of moving forward. Some new treads will help in that regard…what better way to put your best foot forward. So, as we see America becoming “great again”, I’m making a list that I’ll put to good use once the prosperity returns to the rust belt.

No matter what this New Year has brought…or the last few years for that matter… there is hope. Financial stress, relationships crumbling, personal losses, natural disasters, stalled projects,workplace rudeness…we have all been there…all been affected. Still, as we assess what this first month of the New Year has (or hasn’t) brought, we can benefit from these simple yet powereful words. And, an early Spring is at hand so things are already looking up.11_ black friday habituallychic
