Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
I wanted to share a few things I’ve learned this year… Trust your gut.
I had to learn this the hard way, but now I know!
“Follow your instincts.  That’s where true wisdom manifests itself.”  -Oprah Hire smart.
My lawyer, accountant, photographer, and web designer
really helped take my business to the next level.
“The healthy and strong individual is one who asks for help when he needs it.”
-Rona Barrett
Quality over quantity.  
I made a conscious effort to surround myself with people who inspired and uplifted me.
“The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you,
whose presence calls forth your best.”  -Epictetus Live in the moment.
My dad beat cancer this year!
His positive attitude throughout his treatments inspired me to
slow down and appreciate the little things.
“Be present in all things and thankful for all things.”  -Maya Angelou Take risks.  
I’ve always been a more cautious and calculated person,
but this year I really pushed myself.
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”  -Neale Donald Walsch

Here’s to a great 2014!

    Happy New Year Kat! What a lovely post.
    I'm also a very calculated person and I overthink everything always a few times, but taking risks really is something a need to do to chase my dreams.
