Happy new year

48 things I learned last year

I’m not one for new year’s resolutions. Not anymore. I now know there’s far more power in what I’m learning and putting my attention on how I can build this into being my Best Self, including, for example, my daily habits – those tiny things that we do without even thinking about them.   Things …
