Looking Forward 2014

Hello Friends and Escapees.  Just a quick note to wish you a festive New Year celebration.  Whether it’s quiet or loud I hope you bring it in proud!

Mine will be a quiet one, which is the way I like it.  I’ll make a decent meal, sit on the couch with a bottle of wine and perhaps watch ‘Casablanca’ for the hundredth time… “Here’s lookin’ at you kid.”

As you reflect on 2013 I hope you see how brave and courageous you’ve been.  Don’t worry if you’ve made mistakes. They make you who you are so be proud of them.  Don’t forget to count your accomplishments, even the little ones!

As you continue on your journey remember it’s better to have tried and failed then to have not tried at all–not matter what.

 Random New Year’s thoughts;

No one is perfect and this life is our opportunity to live imperfectly.

It’s the moments that count and make up a joyous life so live them to the fullest.

Life doesn’t turn out how you plan, it turns out better.

If you go see one movie in January make it The Secret Life of Walter Mitty-this is one you’ll want to see on the big screen, plus it’s very uplifting

“Beautiful things don’t ask for attention.” –The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Looking forward to 2014 and all the new lessons, people and places to come.  Cheers my friends and thank you for joining me here every week.  Your comments mean so much to me…

    1. Hi Jodi. This was the first movie in a long time that I was so taken with that I had to sit and watch the credits. Happy New Year!

  1. Phoenix and certainly hope our college neighbor girls don’t have any wild bash planned, Lisa. Grrr. I really like what you said about mistakes and essentially embracing them. I’ve sure learned that more and more! And are you being psychic?? Walter Mitty is right at the top of my list to see! I’m thrilled to hear that you give it your endorsement. I like all genre of movies and that includes whimsical which this appears to be. A feel good escape is just “what the Dr ordered…” so to speak 🙂 Happy New Year’s to you and your’s, our friend! 🙂

    1. Phoenix might want to crash the College neighbor girls’ party lol! Whimsical is definitely the word to describe Walter Mitty. I hope you love it. At the beginning you’re kind of thinking ‘really?’ but laughing along then it gets really good! Happy New Year, Mike & Phoenix!

  2. I meant to read the book, but maybe I’ll watch the movie first for inspiration.

    2014 is my year of “easy”. I choose a word to embody/live by every year, and little did I know that 2013’s word, “strength”, was going to mean finding things in me I didn’t even know existed, having my strength tested, and having to finally make the decision that I am strong enough to live a happy, healthy, peaceful, calm life without worrying what others think or do.

    2014 is indeed going to be an easy year for me I’ve decided. No more hammering square pegs into round holes, especially when I know both peg and hole don’t want the struggle either.

    I wish you all a wonderful, EASY, and peaceful 2014!

    1. Hi Michelle! Strength, indeed…good for you! It sounds like you’re doing really well. Not caring about what people think is one of the keys to happiness and it sounds like you’re well on your way 🙂 Happy New Year. 2014=Easy (I like it).
