Try not to anticipate anything bad about
the new year. If it becomes stressful practice mindfulness and living life one day at a time. Presuming that it is going to be anything other than good is just asking for trouble. And negativity comes easy. Try to feel positive about
upcoming situations. I know, easier said than done, but also practice makes perfect. Take it all in as a learning experience.

It is hard not to talk about
people especially when others are doing it. Just listen, but practice not getting caught up in it. Try to divert the conversations to something else. I think that every job has gossip. Mine sure did. I just listened and did change the topics. That way nobody could say that I said anything. There was always too much information going around. lol... But once you get use to staying away from that kind of conversation, it will be easy.
And letting go of bitterness is a wonderful thing. It only engulfs us and makes us miserable. Getting along with the ex is best for the kids. I know it is hard sometimes, but they will see you as the bigger person. You know how it makes you feel. Now you can be more happier. Good choice...
I wish you a very happy New Year. May it be a good one for all of us.
