A New Year Full of Hope and Optimism

Personal Branding

“True genius sees with the eyes of a child and thinks with the brain of a genie” – Puzant Kevork Thomajan

photoAnother year has flown by in lightening speed,
We keep navigating the storms and re-evaluating our needs.
So many challenges yielding so many solutions,
It’s all come down to faith and execution.

Life has shown me so many amazing things,
That I am resilient and a survivor, with a strong set of wings.
I’m thankful and grateful for all of your kindness,
You’ve encouraged me on through moments of blindness.

Twenty-eleven for me was a wonderful year,
For opening doors and moving through fear.
I’ve learned to trust more in my intentions,
That the universe will move me in the right direction.

Making new connections and strengthening the old,
Defying the odds with abounding hope.
Ordinary people doing extraordinary things,
Persevering and soaring and thriving within.

Welcome twenty-twelve, I’m taking you in stride,
Continuing to build my humility and pride.
Let’s go for everything that we want and need.
Let’s go for it now, with gusto and speed.

I’m wishing you health and happiness too,
A New Year full of wow and can do!
Always have hope and optimism too,
That each day has something special for you!
