Wishes and dreams

Another year comes to a close. I checked several things off my list of goals, but there were others where I fell short. Goals, like most things in life, is a matter of focus. You do make strides in areas where you focus and spend time and energy. The ones where you fall short are usually wishes and dreams. If something is important enough, I normally move it to the next year and vow to make it happen.

As Fishducky commented a few posts back,  "Life happens while your busy making other plans." I smiled when I read her words because it's so true.

In a few hours, we'll say hello to 2017. I hope the year is kind to us all.
