(Yup, still going. Almost caught up, too. Mailbox getting full yet? Sorry ’bout that.)

Twenty-four karat bling.
Warm beach sand. Sweet Twinkies. There are some 
wonderful golden treats in
life. What makes life truly golden, though, is harder to find in stores than that Twinkie. Here’s this year’s
list of the things that make it all worth it.

Vision. You don’t have to
have it all. You just have to know what it is you 
want and be willing to
work for it.

Inhibition. Life’s too
short to worry about what the rest of the world thinks. Be polite, be kind, but
then be yourself.

Perspective. When the
little things loom large, turn on the news. There’s always someone who has it
worse. When the world’s problems drag you down, turn off the news. There’s
always something or someone close at hand to cheer you up. (If you’re having
trouble finding that something, call me. I’ll loan you Bert the Farting Hippo.)

Contentment. ‘Happiness’
is subjective and can be fleeting. Contentment is appreciating what you’ve got
and accepting what you don’t. Don’t worry, be content.

Hope. You won’t always
have physical health, or monetary wealth, or everything else you think you
need. But if you hang on to hope, you’ve got more than enough.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Golden New Year!
