2016 has come to a close and I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about 2017. Clearly, there is a lot of uncertainty regarding many issues. However, as a “planner” my goal is to approach 2017 as I approach each year…with an open mind and an open heart. I’m not one for predictions, but I’m sure this year will be filled with changes, controversies, unexpected events and political challenges, as always. The best we can do is connect with where we are…emotionally, physically, financially and have a plan on how to move forward. Of course there are always obstacles, but knowing that there will be obstacles, and being able to deal with those obstacles as they arise, is all we can do. Fortunately, there will also be birthdays, graduations, celebrations, and other times spent together with family and friends. My hope is that we can put our energy into positive change, supporting what is important to us, while staying in tune and vigilant with what’s happening here and around the world.
I wish you much health, happiness, prosperity and peace in the New Year, and I look forward to continuing our work together.
