The more you praise and celebrate your life,
the more there is in life to celebrate. –Oprah Winfrey
Welcome to the Chinese New Year edition of CelebraZine
Happy Year of the Earth Ox, all!!!
Occupying the 2nd position on the Chinese Zodiac, Oxen possess such character traits as dependability, strength and determination. Oxen are tolerant individuals who believe that the road to success involves hard work and scrupulous behavior; they don’t believe in taking shortcuts. They characterize those who don’t work hard as lazy individuals not worthy of respect.
Oxen are capable of trusting others and will listen to their opinions with an open mind. However, Oxen prefer making decisions that are based on their own research. Oxen favor strong, life-long alliances to casual acquaintances.
Barack Obama was born in the Year of the Ox (metal)
Look what the Year of the Ox has in store for you

Listen to this audio essay
….mother stopped me and said something that has stuck with me from that day until now. She said, “You let that be the last time you ever walk by somebody and not open up your mouth to speak, because even a dog can wag its tail when it passes you on the street.”
