2017 is nearing its end! I know it’s been a difficult and challenging year for many, from natural disasters to the state of our politics but right I’m choosing to focus on the positive as the year closes out. I refuse to look back at 2017 as a negative year overall. Bad things happen, they always do but I won’t let that put a damper on the memories. It was a challenging year in many ways but also such a good year in many ways.
