I focus a lot on my kids at SimpleFather.com, and rightly so since this is after all, a parenting blog. But I'd like to step back, take a few minutes and say be aware.
I know that a new year often signals fresh starts, new beginnings, and wiping the slate clean. However, the fact of the matter is for many, a new year means just another year of heartache, financial troubles, and one year closer to the kids moving out.
So be aware of those around you. If your life couldn't be better, I guarantee there is someone around who needs a little help. Do something significant for them, other than telling them that it'll all be okay.
If your life blows right now, don't be afraid to ask for help. If those around you are truly your friends, they would be honored to help.
