With Gratitude to 2019

Thank you for the Lessons I Learned!
Now it's time to take on the New Year. 

With the close of 2019, I look forward to 2020 with optimism and clarity that only 2020 vision can bring. This year I will continue to not judge, as each person has their destiny and that is not mine to decide. I will not be critical of myself, as I know that I am doing my best. I will not rush to accommodate others--either they have patience, or they need to learn it. I will continue to practice patience daily.

I will awaken each morning with gratitude of life, enjoying the beauty of each raindrop, and be thankful for each heartbeat. I will remember that the sun shines on the other side of every storm. I will workout daily, as without our health we have nothing. I will smile often, love deeply, care passionately, and continue to always give my best. I will love those from afar that I cannot spend time with, and I know one day I will see them again, and will tell them how much they were missed, and loved always. 

I will plan for retirement, design my new home, and publish two books by February: 

Flight For Truth, and 
Normalization of Deviance---The Threat to Aviation Safety. 

I will finish Flight For Justice for next years publication. I will study for the LSAT--- when the time is right I will take the test. I will fight for injustice and help all those in need. Nobody stands alone in my world.

Each day is a gift, and should be opened with gratitude. Fun times ahead. I learned to play bridge in 2019. I took my first golf lesson yesterday, and in 2020 I will become a golfer to share my husband's passion. Another year almost took his life, this time his heart. But he survived, stronger than ever. Stress is a killer. My wish for everyone, no matter what happens in your life is to find a way to de-stress.

Happiness is a choice. Life is all about perspective. You can choose to hate, be angry, and judgmental, or you can choose to love, be happy, and be accepting. Life is short. At the end of the day, nobody will look back and wish they hated more. I choose to be happy this year and always. Join me on that journey! 

Happy New Year! 

Enjoy the Journey!
