Happy New Year – Be Happy in 2018!

Filing cabinet with lists and quotes

Make a list of the things you’ve told yourself you should do, and then do them. It’s not easy. Every year I do this. Every year I do not reach all of my goals. Every year I learn something about myself I didn’t know before. One could say that it makes me wise and I realize how blessed I am.

Here is one of my lists of To Dos I thought you’d enjoy reading and it might help happiness abound for you too …

    1. Thanks, Paul! Libraries are the life blood of all writers, authors, and researchers! I try to visit a library in every place I visit. It tells me a lot about the area. Is the futurespastsite.wordpress.com your blog? If so, love the recent post and it is awesome to have you join the bloggers world! 🙂
