Top Ten Tuesday | 2016 Resolutions
interest of full disclosure I’ve never been one to make resolutions nor am I
particularly “into” the idea of them. That being said, there is a lot good to
be said for them and that doesn’t stop me from making goals in every New Year.
The trouble comes in in not following
them. This is most often my downfall.

down I’ll be creating some accountability and
maybe, just maybe, I’ll follow
through on some. Let’s get this list started.
