my resolution for the new year is to shine to the best of my ability. in the things i do... the things i say... the way i treat others. in the way i parent and in my partnership with my husband and in my role as a daughter. in the way i work, both for my boss and myself. i just want to strive to be a better person... to leave a great impression with people, so that when they walk away from our exchange they are smiling. i want to be remembered as bringing happiness and joy to people. and i want to obtain that happiness and joy in my own life. i want to own it. what better way of doing that then to give it all away? anyhow... just a self portrait. thanks for looking.
