This is the time of year when I start thinking about my goals for the following year. Last year my goal was to focus on downsizing and getting rid of things I don’t use. I consistently worked all year on that and can now say it’s just part of how I clean.


I want to add another goal to my list, one that can be carried throughout my whole life. This quote perfectly sums up my 2016 goal of being kinder to and more patient with myself — to focus on the big picture instead of what’s right in front of me. Who’s with me?
