New Year’s has come and gone, and I have to say I am beyond excited for what this year has in store. If your 2017 was anything like mine you had quite the roller coaster ride in both incredible and challenging ways. In my own life I’ve gone from the mountain top of marrying the love of my life, to the valley of being asked to resign from my fairly new corporate job in San Diego not six months later.
The craziest part though, I wouldn’t change any of it. Every up and down in your life is leading you somewhere, and you can either fight tooth and nail against God’s plan or you can show a little faith, have a cup of coffee 😉 and enjoy the ride. We can help with those last two. So here’s to 2018 and making it the best year of your life!
