At the beginning of each year, I sit down to list out the goals I want to achieve in the months ahead. From a young age, my parents instilled in my brothers and me that as long as you set out what you want to be, do, see, and have, the possibilities are endless for what you can accomplish year after year. I truly do believe that the process sets one up for success and results in positive, and in some cases, life-changing choices being made.
Last year at this time, I was gearing up for my first-born to head off to Kindergarten. I was starting to have extreme anxiety over reaching this milestone. I had spent the last five years of my life raising him, and now I was releasing him to the world, relinquishing control over what he would be experiencing on a daily basis.
