New Year’s Eve — December 31, 2015

New Year’s Eve

Happy-Hogmanay1

‘And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup! and surely I’ll be mine! And we’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet, for auld lang syne.’

Here in Scotland, they do things a bit differently, today is not New Year’s Eve as most of the world celebrates it. It’s Hogmanay! This is the second year celebrating and it makes me wonder…….Why wan’t I born in Scotland? But just as well, we do have our Junkanoo rush-out celebrations back in The Bahamas, so I didn’t miss much in the department of FUN over the years.

My New Year’s “REFUSELUTION” — December 29, 2015

My New Year’s “REFUSELUTION”

Some food for thought, that goes perfectly with my Terrific Tuesday post for today!

Andrew & Sarabeth

Refuse

We’re all familiar with making New Year’s resolutions, and we’re even more familiar with breaking them by February 3rd. Let’s face it, most of the time New Year’s resolutions don’t work.

But what if you went into the new year with a different mindset?

Instead of making a New Year’s resolution, do what I’m doing and make a refuselution! 

What the heck is that? Glad you asked.

A resolution is the act of resolving to make a change to one’s life, usually targeting a specific goal and/or accomplishment.

Another way to put it is, it’s like pressing the button on a launch missile and hoping the target gets bombed.

My problem with resolutions is that it leaves a lot of room for failure, because targets are easy to miss. You have a much higher chance of not getting the soccer ball in the goal because there’s so much open space around…

Be More Than a Dreamer in 2016! —

Be More Than a Dreamer in 2016!

Dream Big, Dream Often

I think back to just a few years ago, when my life seemed to be empty professionally and personally, and think about how far I have come.  I am no longer working my retail job which, at the time, seemed like a prison. I have married Evelina and we have moved into a new townhouse.  Although my symptoms are tough to deal with right now, my neurologist believes the medical community is on the brink of terminating MS altogether!  Life for me is as good as it has ever been.

And I don’t believe it is by happenstance.

I understand the frustration of all you dreamers out there.  Feeling you could do so much more and wondering why things just don’t seem to work out or why you don’t have a better job making more money.  Or why you can’t seem to meet the right partner.  Or why others have it better…
