Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016!!


This past year has been a mixed bag of ups and downs. There were lots of closed doors and newly opened ones. It has been a year of creativity, waiting, growth and soul searching. As 2015 draws to a close today I can’t help but look back and reflect as one normally does this time of year. I can honestly say I am in a much better place than I was at the beginning of the year. As I assess the year I can’t help but feel inspired for all the new year has to bring and all I have to give to it. I put together another list of goals to accomplish – a bucket list, my 2016 Manifesto if you will. I have listed them below and plan on following up on them throughout 2016.

I wish you all a beautiful  new year full of happy memories, adventure, love, prosperity and health. I hope we all grow, learn and discover new things every day. Start each day with a positive attitude and a can-do spirit. Love with all your heart, be humble,  honest and kind. Give to those who have not and take only what is given freely. God bless, and have a Happy New Year!!

                My 2016 Manifesto
