Not for nuthin, but it seems like only yesterday that I was ushering in 2014, and now here I am welcoming in 2015.
My last year’s resolutions didn’t make it past the first week — but I did learn a thing or two in the last 365 days.
I will never be a vegan. I love veggies, but I will never not love chicken, fish, or a good piece of filet mignon.
Yes Dr. Hyman’s detox diet helped, but I couldn’t live forever without a cheeseburger deluxe.
Reaching the last year of my fifth decade, I’ve decided I want a do-over.
Saving that new outfit for a special occasion is pointless. Why buy it if you are not going to wear it right away? Enjoy it right now and create that special occasion today — there may never be another chance.
I rediscovered my long-ago love of jewelry making and bead crafting.
Self-help books only help if you plan on self-helping. If not, don’t bother and save the money.
Most often your body knows how to heal itself better than any medication ever could. You just have to give it the opportunity.

The old adage of “The older you get the more you sound like your mother” is so true, and so annoying.

Not for Nuthin™, I’m offering a few tips for 2015: May you always trust your own steps, have faith in the wisdom of the ages — and your inner voice — and listen to your mother, she’s always right.
Most importantly I wish for all of you a new year full of joy, happiness, and health. Remember it’s not your circus, they ain’t your monkeys.
