I can’t grasp how 2014 is already creeping up on us with all of its unpredictability. As I am starting to look ahead, I can’t forget what 2013 taught me: take time and look back to reflect.

And now we are here.. reflecting on 2013 and prepping for 2014.
This year has been a year of change and transition. God definitely made this year happen for me and I am blessed beyond measure. I am sad to see 2013 leave but, there are some things I am looking forward to making happen in 2014. I hope you all have set some new year goals for yourself. Make them feasible, keep them close to your heart, and make them happen.
What’s the one thing you want to see happen in 2014?
