Hello, 2017!
I love a new year, new month, new week, new day. I can't help but get all excited about the possibilities! I'm definitely among those that like to start a new challenge at the beginning of something - except that one time I gave up dessert for the rest of the month...that one I started immediately because you've got to check yourself before you wreck yourself - and there's just something special about a new year and a clean slate.

Who doesn't like to consider themselves a badass, if only on occasion? Someone who doesn't take any [...]
My Most Productive Year Yet
Thirteen months ago, I found myself saying 'I'd love to do that someday…' or 'I've always wanted to do that!' far more than I'd like to admit. Once I realized what I was doing - or more appropriately, what I wasn't doing - I started asking myself why. Why wasn't I doing any of those things that I really wanted to do, like travel more or learn another language or take control of my financial future or challenge myself in new ways?
