“ Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
— Oprah Winfrey

The quote above was how I defined friendship this year. I’ve been through a setback. That time taught me who my friends really are.

Just in case you’re joining us for the first time, I am doing a post  almost everyday on reflecting on 2012 and looking forward to 2013 for the month on December.

This post can be best described as the tale shoemaker’s children.

I have been busy taking care of everyone else’s websites, that I’ve neglected my own  and it almost cost me.

So I took a Friday afternoon and part of that next Saturday to fix it.

Seems like one of the theme had an update and my installation of WordPress didn’t like it.

I uninstalled plugins and themes until I was finally able to get back to the Dashboard. At that moment, I  decided I would upgrade and update to a new theme.

I also decided to simply as well.

So by taking care of myself, I came out better than I anticipated and am able to better communicate what I do.

thank you note

thank you note

Every morning, I say “Thank You.” Sometimes out loud, sometimes not. Gratitude has become a strong undercurrent in my life. I am grateful for every moment, and opportunity, because you simply never know. So when something good happens, I always remind myself to be grateful.

Assistance (with clipping path)

Assistance (with clipping path)

Being an sole proprietor and a only child, asking for help is something that does not come easy to me. A unfortunate turn of events this past year made me realize that I had no choice but to ask for help. They do say no (wo)man is an island.

I realize that when I did ask for help, I truly knew who my friends really are.  I asked and they were there to help me, no matter how long the situation took.

It’s good to know that I no longer have to consider the word “help” a four letter word.

The guy ahead of me at Starbucks the other day offered me a free cup of coffee. Apparently, with every pack of coffee, one gets a free cup of coffee & he didn’t want it. In turn, I brought a www.createjobsforusa.org wristband, which helps create jobs in the USA.

Every time I look at this bracelet, I will not only remember the act of kindness I encountered, but I will also remember how many people, including our veterans,  who are in need to work.
