Shana Tova, dear Readers. Retirement Yenta hopes everyone is enjoying their celebrations of the High Holidays. Your dear Yenta has thrown her bread into the waters and she has eaten apples dipped in honey (yum!) and she has even had some time to sit on her beloved Fire Island deck and reflect on the beauty of the ocean and beach. Your dear Yenta has also been reflecting on the idea of starting fresh. Sometimes, life will throw you a curve ball or two and one might feel as if they can’t get their heads above the water…so, if you have found yourself feeling a little overwhelmed, this little Yenta would like to suggest that you take some time to reflect…find the good things in your life and make an effort to start anew. There is nothing like a new year to help you look at the positive changes you can make in your life.
