Happy New Year 2017

Well, now that 2016 is past and we are officially in 2017, I would like to wish our loyal readers at Blog for Arizona a Happy New Year.  In Hawaii we say “Hau’oli Makahiki Hou” for this New Year’s greeting.

My advice for the New Year is to look forward, not backwards, be hopeful and spread goodness and kindness. Climb your ladder of success, however you define “success”, envision your future’s goals, and good luck in your endeavors.

I find courage and wisdom in the words of Desiderata by Max Ehrmann: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desiderata

“Desiderata” (Latin: “desired things”) is a 1927 prose poem by American writer Max Ehrmann. Largely unknown in the author’s lifetime, the text became widely known …

“And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. ”
