Does anyone else have the tendency to hold on to things longer than they should? 🙋🏻 That’s definitely me.

One Word for 2019

I’m not a resolution person. Sure, I set goals (I do that all year) and the New Year is a great time to review and look at those goals. But for me, the new year is the time I set an intention for the upcoming year. It can be an area I want to grow…
