Especially with so much change hitting me within one year!

For 2018, I am sticking to my tradition of not setting resolutions in this New Year, but rather setting goals. Even though this upcoming year is bringing quite a bit of change in itself, I want to continue to work to better myself every day I’m alive. So here are the goals I am setting for myself to accomplish within 2018:
