On My 40th Birthday

 • Start a new business as of today I want to become everyone’s personal dream vacation planner. Call me so we can start making your vacation dreams come true.
Premium Business Cards by Vistaprint • Start my non-profit to help disabled persons and persons with limited mobility find Personal Care Assistant Care for their vacation and travel needs. (In the next 18 months)
• Remember to live in the moment.
• Remember to feel compassion for people even the haters and enemies.
• Smile ALL the time and make people wonder what the HELL I’m up to now.
• When someone say NO or anything negative to me…

Not to mention this year marks the big 40 for me. I have been dreading it for months. The good news on the homefront are the following:
