I just recently returned from a journey back home to Ohio. It’s been years since I’ve seen a snowy Christmas and this year did not disappoint. Though I’m always saddened by how short those trips are and how infrequently I see my brother and my parents.

I find it helpful to get away (when I can) to step outside of the life I spend so much time buried in the minutiae of and look at it. Studying it to find places for improvement and putting pieces together to decide what the next step will be.

Snowball fights with your siblings and making snow angels helps too!


Happy New Years to everyone! Let’s let it be a year of goals set and progress achieved. Of growth and perspective. Of lessons learned and skills sharpened.
