Keeping that New years resolution is getting old....

     Keeping that New Year’s resolution is getting old already and we are not even half way through the month. Am I the only one feeling this way? I have managed to accomplish two of three promises that I had made to myself but the hardest is the third. I want to earn my purple belt this year and in order to do that I am going to have to find some motivation fast. The next karate session starts Monday and all though I told myself I would be physically conditioned by then but boy, I am in for a world of hurt. I have been slacking off now for four months so with no one to blame but myself I am going to suck it up and start this karate session with a prayer that I will be able to make it through the next three months without injuring myself. So although my new year’s resolution is causing me some stress I am going to give it my best my friends, and looking on the bright side of things I have eleven more months to go. Did you make, keep, or break a resolution?

Happy 2013!

Happy 2013!
      2012 was extraordinary for me,and I am thankful for all the Blessings I received! The last quarter of the year I was having a melt down, mid life crisis, I wasn't happy with who I had become.lol   I want to work smarter, I want to be able to help others better themselves also.  I decided to do something about it and college seemed to be the easiest remedy for me. I want to be a better writer,photographer, designer, retailer,marketer, mother, and well you get the idea. I want to take responsibility for my own happiness. Although I have only earned my first six of sixty college credits for my Associated degree in business and entrepreneurship I have already learned so much. I only regret not signing up years ago. In 2013 my blog and websites will start to reflect the new improved me, as I apply what I am learning. It is sure to be an interesting year for TamsJewelry and I can't wait to share what I learn. Promoting others is one of my focus's, I want to be more effective at promoting handmade artist's work. I am fortunate to have figured out that the biggest thing that keeps me from my success is myself. I am finally finding the balance I needed to accomplish my dreams! I am so excited about 2013 and I hope you get everything you want out of this new year as well! I hope you have a safe and happy 2013 and all your dreams come true!

Women Over Fourty 8)

This is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40: 60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS) As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage! Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

My Favorite Words Of Wisdom and Inspiration8)

You must live for another if you wish to live for yourself. ~ Seneca

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, 'How was the trip?'

'It was great, Dad.'

'Did you see how poor people live?' the father asked.

'Oh yeah,' said the son.

'So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?' asked the father.

The son answered:

'I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.'

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, 'Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.'

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!

Pass this on to friends and acquaintances and help them refresh their perspective and appreciation.

'Life is too short and friends are too few.'

I love this!
