The start of the New Year is a great time for a fresh start! 2010 was great for some, not so great for others, filled with sadness for some, filled with happiness for others, financially awesome for some, financially devastating for others, well you get the picture. Most of the people I encountered over the holiday season are glad 2010 is over and ready for a new year. For me 2010 was a hard year, harder than almost all others. I survived and know I will thrive in 2011. Struggle makes us grow and realize what is important in this world. I know I have learned a lot over the past year. And changes, well many are implemented already and even this morning I see there are more that need to take place. The more I talk to others, the more I see there is more work to be done.
There seems to be a shift in thinking for many about money, values, priorities, health, well being, friendships, family, education, really what is really important in life? Downsizing seems to be the norm these days and watching our money more closely almost with a magnifying glass is also. America is getting back on its feet and it is happening with everyone doing their part. Don’t get me wrong, there are still people out there taking advantage of the system and causing a larger burden for the rest of us but overall we are headed in the right direction.
What are your New Years Resolutions or changes you will make in the New Year? Mine are downsize, appreciate more of what I have, appreciate my friends and family more, spend a lot less and cut out the frills, work smarter, help as many people I can get what they want, save more money, buy investment property, buy a new home (much smaller than in the past), grow spiritually and be a better me.
