But, despite all of this, I still try to set a couple of New Year’s resolutions each year… not to be hard on myself, but, to celebrate my potential. Today, I would like to share one of my New Year’s resolutions with you. I’d also give you some help for setting your own goals for 2019. New Year’s resolutions not your thing? Don’t worry!
