2018 New Years Resolutions

Posted on

Happy 2018! Last year, I had an extensive list of goals and resolutions.  I never went back and checked them so it was sort of pointless.  This year I’m changing things up and instead of listing out a bunch of goals, I’m just going to focus on one thing-taking care of myself!
