HAPPY NEW YEAR!

BYE, BYE, 2012... What happened? HELLO, 2013... What’s new?

Our rear view mirror is crystal clear, and by looking through it we can clearly see what went wrong last year... This time of the year is a great time to take inventory and decide what we want to bring with us, and what we should be grateful to leave behind... It’s up to us to decide if we want this to be a better year, if last year wasn’t all that great... The New Year is the last chance to make the changes that can offer us to make the future better than the last...

New Year's Resolutions

Let’s put a lid on the coffin that was 2012... Looking back isn’t healthy for a lot of reasons, least of all bringing all of that luggage with you into the future.. Lots of things happen that we couldn’t avoid, like storms, global economy, elections, health issues..etc… Although it could be argued that even those could have had less of an impact on us if we were better prepared to deal with those reverses should they reoccur...

A resolution is a resolve to make the changes that will make your future more secure, better prepared, happier, than the past has left us.. So you are allowed to look back one last time to establish a new starting point to get started on the new direction in making sure that we won’t make those mistakes again.. After all, we are supposed to learn from our mistakes, not repeat them, RIGHT?

What’s New? YOU! This is the 1st, not just the first day of a year, a new year, it’s also the very first day of the rest of your life.. It’s the STOP,START POINT.. It’s not a joke, it’s a reason to take charge, to Change.. It’s a stopping point to quit doing those things that screws up your life because you KNOW that they aren’t going to change unless you do.. STOP AND THINK, what are you doing that will bring that heavy burden with you forward, the luggage that dragged you down last year and perhaps even longer.. DROP IT OFF AT THE NEW YEARS EVE PARTY, and walk away, no one but you will benefit from doing that, but YOU!

NEW YEAR, NEW YOU!... HAPPY NEW YEAR, HAPPY NEW YOU!

Happy New Year my FRiend.
On New Years day, I will go out to my forge,
light a fire and have coal smoke fill the air.
The day will resound to the sound of the hammer
and anvil.

We have to my friend.... Making our own lives better and voting with our dollars between elections is my priority The days it takes a lot to anger me. Maybe just numb to the crap polidiots and presstitutes heap upon the citizens of the once great nation. The mere waste of electricity to house congress critters is insulting. To enable their treason and sedition with our tax dollars is the yoke around our necks IMHO.

TV was turned off in 2008.

Internet bill is my sin tax to whatever advertiser gets a penny a ping .

Won’t buy union products unless absolute “have to have” parts for basic needs of home, transportation etc ...

Stay on my local and state polidiots to include those in congress 24/7. ...

We have to try ... Liberty is work. Those that don’t work have no liberty.

Stay safe.
