January 01, 2018 Day 01 – 42 Flash 2018

Growing up, New Year’s Eve was spent playing scrabble with my sister and my mom, and sometimes some friends while my dad an brother were playing in a dance band. In the morning there were always hats and noisemakers for us. More recently I’ve spent New Year’s Eve patrolling with my husband trying to keep people safe and make it through to the new year. It was on one of these patrol nights I learned an important lesson – just because you’re responsible and volunteer to be the designated driver— doesn’t mean your efforts will be appreciated. Go figure.

Some days are better than others. If you focus on the negative, you’ll see it as negative. If you focus on the balance, life is balanced and if you focus on the good, life is good. No matter how you view it, it beats the alternatives. The world is what we look for.
