December 2017 Newsletter

So here we are, at the start of the last month of 2017. It’s been a strange year—one with constant barrages of negativity, scary headlines, and terrible news. Still, it’s amazing how, if you think about (and I know you may have to think on it for a little while), there has been positivity as well. I’ve always believed that we have to endure some level of hardship in order to understand the feeling of having happiness and/or success. The saying is, “What goes up, must come down,” but I think you can also say “What goes down, must come back up.” Of course, as I just typed that I realized it could infer something not so pleasant, but the message is not meant in the salmonella or E.Coli sort of way.

So this may sound naïve or stupid, but I do believe 2018 will be a better year than 2017. I hope that’s the case for all of you reading this, and we at MJM wish you all a happy holiday season and a great kickoff to 2018!--Mike
