A New Year, A New Start …..


And so here we are, another new year, another fresh start.

I enjoyed 2010, but there’s no question is was a tough year for many.  I was blessed to have had all members of my family healthy and safe.  My husband and I have (4+1) children, Yes, a total of 5, together, and they are all happy, married, engaged, single, working, living their lives with great happiness.  Our Parents are still with us and we love having them visit when they can.  We feel so fortunate.

In my career over the past year, I  have worked with so many wonderful families, working as hard as I could to help them through some of their challenges, primarily those losing homes, and at times we were successful, and other times, not so.   It’s difficult to get the bank to collaborate.. especially when their minds are made up to Foreclose, they just go ahead and do so.  My personal mandate is to make sure families come out of this experience as smoothly as possible, at least understanding what is occurring in their lives, and  ensuring they have the best advice both from a tax and legal perspective, so they can move on with their lives.

That being said, we all are aware of the crisis, but we must not forget who we are, what we do have, and where where we are heading.  Always try to smile and be positive, as much as possible.  I’m a true believer in you reap what you sow. I’ll speak for myself right now, in that, albeit what transpired over the past year or two in my life, I am first a foremost a proud, loving and supportive Mom & wife, relative, friend, colleague, partner and a business woman.   I work hard trying to please people, and making good things happen for the people in my life.   Does that in any way mean I would do wrong ?…. I could, but surely hope not, or at least with absolutely no intentions of doing so…. would I hurt someone?  I surely hope not, again with absolutely no intentions of doing so.  So if I have made a mistake, or have done something wrong, I send out my apologies because that’s just not me, my style, or my make-up.

I sometimes wonder why people spend their time doing things that make absolutely no sense at all…. like ridiculing people, or being nasty to others, being deceitful, or lash out with any other negative behaviors?   What value do they derive from this ?  What could they possibly benefit?  Again, if you ‘reap what you sow’, then Karma takes over…  I ask what will come back to them ?   What a future to look forward to, huh ?   Do a good deed, help someone if you see them doing something that won’t help or benefit them…. they deserve kindness around them too.. maybe that’s the problem… they may just be like Ol’ Scrooge and need nice people around.  They too can change.

Well that’s about all I have to share to get a fresh, positive new start to the year.

I wish everyone a very Happy New Year, much success in your personal lives, your family life, and in your careers.

May All Your Dreams Come True.
