2016 was truly a wonky-tonk year for me. I was more than ready to bid it farewell. I did not stay awake to say goodbye to 2016 however I was jumping for joy this morning as I welcomed 2017 with a resounding YES!
As I enjoyed my morning coffee I prepared my list of things to do today and tomorrow. I sat down at my computer and was compelled to close out my 2016 files. I could not stop myself despite the fact that doing so was not on my list of things to do today.
Several hours later, my 2016 office files are purged and my 2017 files are created.
I am as complete with my tax files as I can be at this time. Income and expenses are all calculated and ready for my CPA appointment in March. Yes, I already scheduled that appointment on Friday. Did I mention I was ready to say goodbye to 2016?
Many things will remain the same for me in 2017. There will be some modifications and changes to how I manage my time. More focus on my passion. 2017 starts year 15 for me in the real estate business and year 6 as an independent San Jose real estate broker. I set high goals to serve more sellers and donate more to charities this year.
ActiveRain will continue to be a part of my daily routine. Perhaps not so much in posting to my blog as logging in to read and interact. I do plan to participate in the contests. I see two posted already and a heads-up post of another announcing that details will post on 1-6-2017. I gave up working on my addition ... I just embrace it now. I eat up points like Pac-Man. It is all part of the addiction.
I want to thank the ActiveRain community and the tech team who work to make the platform better. A special thank you to those who follow me and consistently comment on my posts. I do attempt to reciprocate with comments and likes. Doing so is not a religion for me. Please know that I do my very best with the time and resources I have available on any given day.
May you all enjoy your own 2017 journey. May it be filled with joy, happiness, good health, humor, love, kindness, patience, prosperity and success ... however you define it.
