It’s the Holiday season and the new year is quickly approaching.  Before you know it, it will be 2012.  Another year will be placed in the record books, as they say, ancient history.  With all of that being said, I’m wondering are you……

Whey I say that I’m asking  numerous things.  Are you being the best person you can be?  Are you being a good parent to your children?  Are you being the best partner in your relationship?  You get the idea.  With the newness of the upcoming year I think we all should do some reflecting on our own personal lives.  Sure, I think that I’m a good person and I feel like I’m a decent wife and mother but let’s face it, there’s always room for improvement.  So let’s take this time to ask ourselves the tough questions and answer them honestly.  In my everyday life I talk to women who are successful in their jobs, they have great relationships with their friends and families but they are failing in the love department.  Now, some women are quick to say, “there are no good men out here” or “I can’t meet a nice guy”  C’mon ladies let’s be honest….sometimes our list of requirements can be a bit ridiculous.  For example, it’s not fair to shoot a brother down just because he has a little something extra around the middle.  When you know that you have  something extra yourself when you go home in the evening and peel that size 8 body magic girdle off your size 12 body.   That’s not fair.  Or if you yell at your children for waiting until the last-minute to do their homework or producing less than your expectations academically, and  you don’t take the time in the evening to go over their homework with them or even discuss the happenings of their day.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not standing on a high horse, I’m just trying to get us all to take a serious look into our own everyday lives and try to make improvements accordingly.  The new year will be like our clean slate, therefore we have no excuses but to give it a try.   Now Are you……if so, then that’s great.  But if you are like the rest of us and can stand to do some maintenance, take a serious look and handle it accordingly.
