As we say goodbye 2017 and hello 2018 I like to focus on hopes for the new year. As always I immediately go to work life balance and hope for a more peaceful resolution then the year before. Since this seems to come up year after year it’s safe to say we’ve not figured out the ideal situation, but seem to at least maintain a reasonable amount of balance. It’s easy to get caught up in the crazy and miss out on the calm. We can find ourselves spinning out of control and not even notice the rest stop staring us in the face. “Count your blessings” is easier said than done. My hope is that we simply take more time to breathe and not miss the good already in place.
