New Year...Time to Reflect [from Issue 2012-1]

2012 is here! It's new and it's a whole 12 months of new goals, new mistakes, and dreams. When thinking of dreams and the New Year, we discussed what important tidbit or article would convey this message to you. After much thought, we decided to open up this topic to our BeeAlive family; we asked for quotes, messages, or tidbits. Here is what we got!

When I think of New Year I reflect on challenges, new hopes, and dreams. This is a quote I repeat to myself when times get rough... "The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don't want it badly enough. They're there to stop the other people."

"The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand."
- Vince Lombardi; contributed by Vicki, Quality Control Manager

Throughout my life there have been a couple of quotes that have helped me get through the rough times; one of them is, "Everything happens for a reason" and the other, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger!" There have been many valleys in my life but my faith has helped me through them, I have become very strong because of them!

"It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit."
- Harry Truman, contributed by AnnaMarie, Administrative Assistant

When I think of the New Year, I'm reminded that it's an opportunity to renew our minds. It is said "When we change the way we think we can change our lives!" I like to reflect on the previous year to do a check list on the overall theme. I ask myself, "what's was the main thought process I had and did my thoughts produce what I expected?" So how do I renew my mind? The best way I believe is to meditate on all the good, be thankful, read positive books and anticipate the great New Year!

"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."

"Reach for the moon and even if you miss you will be among the stars."
