Igniting Growth

Reflection and Renewal

Wednesday, January 18, 2017

Its a brand new year and with that comes a fresh start, a new chance, a new mountain to climb.  I always look forward to January as a time to reflect on the prior year and imagine the future year I want to craft.  In my reflections on the past year, I reviewed my blog posts and wanted to highlight a few I thought I did not want people to miss as they turn the page to the new year.
