#2018

Happy day 3 of the New Year!  I know I’m a little late to the party, but we have had a busy few days with the kids.  Anyhow, I hope you had a fabulous NY celebration.  Ours was low key.  Solaiman and I decided to stay in, eat good food, and relax.  So perfect for us. At this point, you have probably been inundated with posts about New Year’s resolutions.  You know — the posts about how to make 2018 yours, to better yourself, to make vision boards, so on and so forth.  My two cents.  You don’t need a new year to be a new or improved you.  We have the option to reset and reframe at any point during the year.  I always wondered about the go-all-out resolution-setting on December 31.. even…
