is it January 12th already?

I'd like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

For the past 4 years I've chosen a motto or mantra for my self to try to make the balance between work and life healthier. Working for your self tends to take over your life a bit..especially when you do it from home. Last year it was LIVE THE LIFE YOU LOVE, the year before KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON, the year before TRY TO LIVE LIFE and this year it's simply STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES. All of them are based on signs I've seen around and this year is no different..I pass this sign on the highway all the time...it's also something my Dad always says..goes something like this..'Old Brother Joseph used to say - take the time to Stop and smell the flowers'....just one of the many pearls of wisdom Dad remembers from his days at school!

So this year I'll be making an effort to STOP and SMELL THE ROSES and enjoy the simple things in life..coffee with friends, walks with Pochi, tending to the garden..all the small things that make me feel good and make my life richer!

What will you do?
