Happy New ‘Year of the Happy’

I wish everyone happiness in the new year, including me. Be happy. Find your happy!

“Better by far you should forget and smile than that you should remember and be sad.” -Christina Rossetti


It’s okay if you didn’t feel your best or look your best. Maybe you lost a job or a life. Maybe, you didn’t have any money for presents… again.

And, that is ok. It does get better. So, if you had a break-up, or are anticipating one…

Just whatever it is, let it go and let God. Focus on yourself and what is right in front of you, and give everything else the finger, not 2016! 2016 is another great year that is now lost. Be grateful along with me.

Forgive family, walk away from the drama, and let go of the other relationships that might be ailing you. Turn off the tv, put away the phone. Back to the basics. This is what I want for me in 2017, and for everyone, whether you read it here or not.

Back to the basics, remember where you came from. Then, make your Resolution List for 2017. Always write it down! In fact, journal that shit!

I am not the happiest person always. But, I was very happy in this picture with my pup on New Year’s Eve. I was happy playing Monopoly last night and tonight with my family and then my son. Do more of what makes you happy, they say…

Back to the basics for me is about taking a look at what I do have right in front of me, and going with it. I do not “need” anything else. I have a home and a job and a life and family, Church, etc. 2017 for me is about finding my happiness first with myself, finding solitude, and then discovering my joy again. In everything! Because, …

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” -Francis De Sales

Which mine so often has been. So, let that shit go, I must… Nite.
