In just a few hours 2013 will have come to a close, and 2014, the New
Year will be upon us.  I’m excited for
this.  I’m not going to say the corny, cliché
‘New Year, New Me’, but I do know that 2014 will be better because I’m putting
it out there.  Positive thinking!  I don’t do resolutions per se, but I do
believe in setting goals, hence my 30 Before 30 bucket list.  So I’m sharing with you my 2014 goals.
