New Year's Eve - IT'S TIME TO PARTY!!!

This year has been one of great changes in our lives. My partner and I decided that our quality of life was infinitely more important than the carreer hampster wheel that we found ourselves perpetually on. We realized that all the money in the world is not worth the time away from our family, friends and the experiences that we are not able to enjoy due to our work schedules. So, in September we accepted an opportunity in Sarasota and decided to start changing our life!

2012 is going to be OUR year! That's right! For once in our lives we are going to be a little selfish. But, not selfish in a bad way. We mean that we are going to make  living our BEST life (a la Oprah) a priority versus always putting our needs last...which is what we've normally done. Just like on an airplane when they explain to the passengers that they should first put the oxygen masks on themselves before they even attempt to help others with theirs. It is the same concept. We are going to make sure that our emotional and physical needs are met to our personal satisfaction FIRST. This will in turn allow us to have the necessary energy and desire to help others without expecting anything in return. That is our goal.

If the Mayan's are right 12-21-12 will be our last day on Earth. If that is the case, we've got to make sure to take advantage of every oporutnity offered our way. If there is a chance to do something you've never done before....DO IT! If there is a doll that you have lusted after for years but just couldn't justify the secondary market prices....SAVE UP AND GET IT! If there is a choice to get together with friends or spend your Tuesday night doing laundry or cleaning the house....GO OUT WITH YOUR FRIENDS!

As, Auntie Mame once said,"Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!" So, this year let's follow the famous Grand Dame's lead, put a big cloth napkin around our necks, dive into the mash potatoes and gravy, drink that extra flute of champange and have the thick piece of chocolate cake at the end. Let's savour life and everything it has to offer in 2012!

p.s. Oh and if you are vascillating as to whether or not your should join the WClub or go to the FR Convention in Orlando....stop thinking about it....JUST DO IT!
