Thus, my goals this year were to be healthier, walk straighter, smile brighter, love deeper, dream bigger and to BELIEVE!
Happy New Year! I wish you all a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2011.

Ethel: Well, you're awfully good at...uh... You've always been great at...
Lucy: Those are the same ones Ricky came up
I was impressed at the honesty of the moment and thought how many of us go through life and we do not clear up misunderstandings. We waste years on holding grievances, when a clear and direct question "Are you upset with me" or "Did I do something to offend you" would clear the way for honest dialogue.
One must be really brave to ask that question. Because what if the person answers yes, you offended me. How do you handle that? You have to stay strong, and just listen to them. To the best of your ability, make a sincere effort to clear up the misunderstanding. It takes even greater courage to say I am sorry.
Today, I encourage you to take that brave step and have an honest conversation.
In some families, please is described as the magic word. In our house, however, it was sorry. ~Margaret Laurence
The journey has been marvelous as I have been able to put into practice what I preach which is to strive for your goal and to go for your dreams no matter what. I also had the opportunity to take part this summer in Jack Canfield's Breakthrough to Success Training and was able to be among others dreamers.
Today, I hope all of you are pursuing your dreams with passion!

Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, not seven times, but seventy times seven.’” Matthew 18:21–22
