Well here we are in 2017. How did 2016 fly by so quickly? It's been quite a while since I wrote last, so I wanted to start the New Year off with a message in which I believe whole-heartedly: No matter what, STAY YOU. The beginning of a new year (for many) starts off bright and hopeful with promises of great change, renewal, and fresh starts. Growth and self improvement goals in specific and achievable ways -- are always important. It is equally important, however, to stay true to you.
