Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you all stay safe and smart. As each year passes, I like to look back in reflection on the important things in life and to help plan for another great year of opportunity and success.
In today’s society, what is bad is good and what is good is bad. People live in a sad state of affairs in general and family values is nothing but of a thing of the past. As for me, I live by the motto of “Family First” and make it perfectly known to anyone that they are what are important to me. Never will it be money, a job or a career over them. I would hand in my badge at any prestigious employer to see the smiles on my family’s faces and to uphold my own honor and beliefs. I also live by a creed not followed by many today, one of loyalty, discipline, integrity, honestly, love, and compassion. I believe if we take care of what is most important, everything else will fall into place in small or large blessings.
Stay true to who you are and never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something or can’t become someone. I’m a 40-year-old bald guy (currently I’m fat too but I’m still pretty. LOL) typing this in my kitchen, happily married (14 years), has two kick ass teenagers who mean the world to me, have an awesome wife, and together, we are a strong family.
All through my years of education, life experiences, jobs/bosses, mishaps, and endeavors, it comes down to simply saying “Fuck you” to all those who said I would never be successful. Believe in yourself and your dreams. In 2014, I am going to push even harder to ensure the path of happiness remains intact.
Keep your chin up and make life work for you. If the people you hang around with, some you might call friends, are not supportive or are too negative…push them to the curb and move on. Do not be slowed by the delinquency of failure or the complacency of success… there is always something more…
Happy New Year!
