Looking ahead to 2017, many of us are thinking about New Years resolutions, setting goals, or figuring out ways to make next year even better. Before we can do that, I believe it’s important to pause and review all that you’ve accomplished, experienced, and learned in the current year before your say ‘goodbye’. It’s a great way to determine how far you’ve come, figure out what’s working, and what isn’t so you can more accurately layout a better path to continue moving forward. This is why I took this time not only to thank you all but to highlight every little success to see how far my blog has come, acknowledge that all the hard work—and late nights!—are paying off, and to inspire me to do even better next year. This is a worthwhile exercise that I highly encourage you all to do before the clock strikes 12 midnight because we all need to be kind to ourselves, silence the inner critic, and just pat ourselves on the back for a job well done! πŸ™‚

Thanks again for an amazing year and best wishes to you all in 2017!!!
