At the start of a new year, we review what's gone before and plan for the future. I hope your past was all you hoped for and that 2017 is even better. For those struggling, as well all do from time to time, take a deep breath and look for something - anything - that brings pleasure in your life, no matter how small. And know that tomorrow brings new beginnings.
New years brings new opportunities for change, self improvement and exposure to new things. Aside from the usual resolutions that fly out the window mid January, its worth really looking inwards to see what you want to change, learn or be. Changes can be free for the taking.
