As 2018 approaches, we think about several things. We think about the previous year; we think about our past experiences, our relationships, but most of all,  we think about the future.

We allow ourselves to create New Year’s resolutions based on the previous year. We also  set goals that we intend to reach in the upcoming year. As we enter the new year, we have to be reminded that we have a chance to start over, a chance to write a new story. One with twelve brand new chapters containing three hundred sixty five pages.

This year we need to focus on how we can not only do better, but also learn how to build better versions of ourselves. As we begin to do this, others will do the same.
