Happy 2017! I hope you and yours had a wonderful holiday season that has included many lovely memories to carry you through the beginning of this New Year! December was a whirlwind for us – finishing up the school semester, wrapping up my teaching job for the semester, and packing for a trip to Texas and to Hawaii (!! more on that soon!). As the travel comes to a close and “real” life is just days away, I’ve begun to muse about this upcoming year and the possibilities it contains.
Do you do New Years’ resolutions? Goals? Experiments? Boycott the whole thing? No matter what your preference, times of reflection and dreaming can be so good for our souls. For me, it helps me see not just the hard parts of the year, but also the many things the year has taught me, the areas I’ve grown, along with the sweet memories made throughout. I’m hopeful about 2017, and I would love to hear what you’re looking forward to this coming year in the comments!
