Maggie de Vera Blogs: REFLECTIONS…


Great year…

Posted in Uncategorized by Administrator on the January 8th, 2014

During my break between back-to-back clients and meetings today, I went to the one of the BEST taco trucks in SF (behind my ROYAL office in the Mission District) to pick up some tacos for my first meal of the day at 4 pm. After I paid for and picked up my order, I smiled at the hard-working older woman working in the taco truck and said “Happy New Year! This is going to be a GREAT year!”. She looked like she was very tired and said to me with a sarcastic/doubtful look, “How do you know it will be great?”.

I said, “Because I’m going to work very hard to make it great. And I’ll be looking for the positives in as many things as I can, appreciate and be grateful and learn the lessons of the hard, challenging times- while I pray for and practice strength, love, patience and peace.. that’s how I know.”.

And with a huge smile that grew on her face which also reflected in her eyes, she said, “Now I know that I’m going to have a great year too!”.

Made the rest of my day…

BLESSINGS and Love to y’all!
