Appreciate the Past, Enjoy the Present

It's that time of year. You know, the time of year when you see people posting New Year's goals, resolutions, and tips to bring your hopes to life. And nothing is wrong with that, but what I worry about is the temptation to thrust yourself into future without appreciating the past and enjoying the present.

So why not flip the script today? Can you make a list of everything you accomplished this year? Not only will it remind you how far you've come, it'll prove how far you can go. And that's the best way to start a new year.

In light of being accountable, here are three things I did this year that made me proud: 1. I made tamales for my neighbors; 2. I photographed The Knot Dream Wedding…live on the internet; and 3. I invested in a business coach. I'd love to hear what you're proud of in 2015, so holler back!
