As the clock struck mid-night following December 31, the world became immersed in celebration. Different parts of the world welcomed the New Year with their individual customs, rituals and traditions. And, around the world, the common thread was positivity.
The New Year has always been one of my favorite times of the year. It is a time of optimism and hope. No matter what happened last year, there is the idea that everything is possible in the coming year.
It’s the perfect time of year for reflection regarding our accomplishments last year. I strongly believe it is important to recognize and celebrate our individual and collective successes. Of course, the New Year is more famously known as the time to make resolutions. From resolving to exercise more and eating healthier to committing to spend less and save more, there is no better time to make a plan than in the early days of a brand new year. Let us leverage that extra determination, strength, & hope this New Year brings with eager anticipation.
As a business owner in the Mission Hills Business Improvement District, I continue to be thankful for our neighborhood of unique businesses with creative owners and for the adjacent and intertwined residential neighborhood of wonderfully supportive individuals and families. Together we are the vibrant community of Mission Hills.
