A Look Back at 2018

I have a bit of a tradition when it comes to the New Year -- my dad and I toast to the New Year with pink champagne and I tell him about what I hope to accomplish. Sometimes, it’s fairly simple things, like making sure all of my dishes are washed before going to bed at the end of the night and other times --like this New Year’s-- it’s things that are fairly substantial; like have a first draft of the children’s book I want to write. This 2019 goal felt daunting when I spoke the words aloud and it actually caused me to realize something about myself that I’ve always known by have kind of ignored: I’m easily discouraged.
