Welcome 2018!!! You have been here for almost a week already, and I still find myself writing 2017 constantly when I am writing the date. So I love how a new year gives a fresh feel to everything and there always feels like so much freedom and joy in it. Mistakes we have all made can be left in the old year, and a new year is upon us. On that note, I encourage everyone who reads this to give themselves freedom and license to believe and hope for great things in 2018. Vision is important, and sometimes I can look to the past and lament (especially with “what might have been” or with my regrets), rather than look to the future with joy and hope. Let us all have more hope, joy, peace, faith, and happiness in 2018!!!
