The Improvement Process

I now interrupt this travel series to bring you a monthly update.  With January almost over, some people may be slipping on their resolutions or goals for the year.  It’s all fun in the beginning, but when the novelty starts to wear off, it can become even more difficult to continue to improve ourselves.  Whether or not you made a resolution, I would love to hear how you work towards making the best you that there can be.  Here are some of the things that help me reach my goals.

Another Year Almost Gone

I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve posted.  Granted, it feels like it’s been forever since I’ve done anything normal.  With my pre-holidays vacation, the actual holidays, and then being completely out of it with a nasty sinus infection, my days have been anything but ordinary.  Now that the fog has lifted and I am this.close to feeling like my ol’ cheery and healthy self again, I can’t believe the end of the month—and year—is only days away.
