Ring In the New Year with Smiles & Happiness

As the year literally comes to a close this evening, I want to wish everyone much, love, hope, happiness, luck, and lots of smiling.  In general, I tend to smile a lot even when I don't feel like smiling.  I read somewhere and mentioned it another time, even when you are not feeling well, take a shower, start your daily routine, and smile.  A smile can change your entire attitude instantly.  When you don't feel like doing anything, PUSH yourself, in the end you will thank yourself.  Surround yourself with positive people, and show the negative people they don't have to be that way.  We have a lot to be thankful for!  Even in times of stress and frustration there is always someone who cares and supports you.  Stress and frustration are not permanent and can be channelled into positive energy. 

Make a commitment to yourself, to strive for all of your goals.  People don't get anywhere on luck alone.  I do believe in luck but with a positive goal-oriented attitude you will be successful in anything you do!  You won't know if you don't try. 

For awhile, I wanted to lay low and hide my identity through my pseudonym Determined Diva; while I love my aka DD and will continue to use it, for 2012 I will be using my true identity more often; because that is who I am and I love myself.  I have also been writing a lot of articles and plan to continue writing much more in 2012 (its my passion). Also, I personally have a lot to be thankful for and many new and exciting goals for 2012. 

Committed to New and exciting things for 2012,
Dana ;)
