Another year passes, marred by shocking accounts of sadness and cruelty, violence and misery. We are bombarded by so many horrific events and disasters in the media each day that it’s easy to get overwhelmed and depressed by it all. And yet, despite this plethora of negativity, I lean on the side of optimism. I believe that the bad crap can be overcome, or at least counteracted, by love and kindness, hope and dreams, determination and perseverance … and lots of smiles.
Wishing everyone lots of happiness, good health, and prosperity in 2013!
