Happy New Year

Happy New Year! It's time to ring in the year 2018. Are you ready for it? I think I am and I am not. I am ready for a new year and new adventures. I am not ready to say I have done my best for 2017. I am ready for winter to be done and spring to arrive. I am not ready to be closer to turning the big 50 in just over a year.

However, no matter how ready I am or am not, time continues and the New Year will be here in a blink of an eye. As I sit here planning blog posts, filling in my 2018 calendar, and looking ahead to classes and opportunities for second semester, I invite everyone to take the time to honor the events and lessons of 2017 and thank the year for how we have grown. Then, turn towards the new year and welcome it in. Maybe not with open arms, but at least with an open mind and heart.

After all, the New Year is coming. Perhaps this is the year you tackle those obstacles that have been holding you back. Perhaps this is the year you challenge yourself to reach a little higher and a little further. Perhaps this is the year of becoming a better you. Why not make 2018's slogan #newyearnewyear. I think that is my goal!

Here's to a wonderful and prosperous New Year!
