My optimistic self always views the New Year as a start or a restart. The beginning of new challenges and the chance to try again at old ones. I’m never sure what the new year will bring but I’m happy for the chance to make (and keep or not) new goals and resolutions.
On the practical side, 2017 was rough in a lot of ways. International AND local politics were a downer. Parts of my business were less successful than I hoped. Family members suffered. There’s a lot to improve on for 2018.
My 2018 stands to be a very different adventure.
