How to Reflect on your Year: Realize your Path

It's easy opening doors for the new, but when it comes to letting go of the old, things may get difficult. 2017 is just a day away, and the New Year is a chance for change. A chance to start fresh, make detours, realize where you're heading and hopefully continue on a path that consistently pleases your heart, soul, body and mind.  We don't believe that change can only happen in the New Year. There's always a chance to make changes and adjust your path. But any opportunity to make time for yourself, reflect and set goals should be snatched and cultivated.
