Looking Forward to a Brand New Year

W ell, 2018 is here, and with it is a whole new set of things to look forward to. I have plenty of goals in store for the coming year, a bunch of fun planned for my family, and, of course, a lot of work to do. That said, I’m not really the type to set New Year’s resolutions. It’s always been my thinking that the day of the week, month, or year should never stop you from realizing your goals. If you’re waiting for the fabled perfect opportunity to get started changing your life for the better, there will always be a reason to continue putting it off. Don’t get me wrong, though. I’m not about to knock other people’s resolutions.

Pretty soon, my son will be in high school, my daughter will be in junior high, and neither of them will be in the co-op home- schooling program we’ve had for the past couple years. So it’s top priority to hang out with them. We’re hoping to check a few more national parks off our list, starting with Joshua Tree. Last year was one of growth, both personally and professionally, and so far, 2018 is shaping up to be even better. I welcome all the challenges and opportunities this coming year may bring.
