Where were you a year ago? Were you better off? Worse off? In a different city, a different country? Not yet in a relationship, about to be a parent, ...
My family and I made our first journey to the Holy Land in 2015 and spent Christmas in Bethlehem, where, for Christians, it all began. Many picture Bethlehem as it is romantically depicted on Christmas cards: sweet, clean, calm. What I found, however, was different.
I didn't know as much about the people I didn't know as much about and that ignorance was often blissful.
Just how long should my neighbors leave their lights up? My friend, Mark, is of the opinion that Christmas lights are for Christmas. The moment Santa and his reindeer take off, he believes, you should be up on the ladder taking them down.
It goes that 2016 will find me doing the same thing I've done every year. I'll be loving on my great, big, crazy family and doing this: Write. Edit. Publish. Repeat.
Happy New Year! I hope that you enjoy all the successes that the cornucopia of 2016 spills forth! I hope you act selfishly--always--if selfishness does an ounce of good for somebody else.

2015 is over, and many people are glad to see it go, if only for the symbolic feeling of starting over with the promise of a new year. But it's important to remember the good moments - and 2015 did have some big ones.
At the beginning of each New Year my step-daughter, Lisa, encourages us to proclaim three words that represent our aspirations for the upcoming year. The catch is that the words need to be alliterative--they all need to begin with the same letter.
Count down to the new world, the new thoughts and the new you. Tonight, and every night, the world holds its promise out to you. Count down to the one change. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1... Happy New You!
Your purpose is simple. It's to create something that you -- and only you -- can create. As you think about a new year and perhaps consider setting resolutions once again, consider instead of resolutions asking yourself one simple question: What am I creating?

So you woke up this morning and glanced down at your newsfeed. A dozen posts come up instantly, reminding you to set New Year's resolutions.
May 2016 be the year you feel and recognize the deeper meaning of your fatigue. And most importantly, may the gratitude for that fatigue lead you to making the changes in your life that, in time, will lead you to being more happy and healthy.
These days, I don't feel that Chris is around and helping me as much anymore because he knows that I've got this now. I took care of him when he needed it, and he was here for me when I needed it. I have learned that connecting with him means tapping into my own heart energy and loving myself. It is one in the same.
