One of my biggest weaknesses' has always been anticipation. While it is still present in my life, over the past year and a half I've learned to put anticipation at bay.  Anticipation can lead to avoidance and today I do not want to avoid things unless they are dangerous.    When anticipation creeps up on me, I reevaluate the day, moment, hour, or second to put my mind at ease.  I put my worries in a bottle and send them away, similar to the picture above.  It is difficult, yet simple because we are responsible for how we feel and ultimately how our day will turn out.  If you are having "what you feel" is a bad day, remember two things:  someone else has it worse and tomorrow can be a fresh start or a new beginning.  

It's not a secret that I love to research and write.  Last year with school, work, commitments, and other activities, I did not have the opportunity to write as often as I would have liked to. This year will be different as each day will be a new beginning and I have 365 Days of new beginnings and opportunities

Now I present our year in review:  

For 2016, the personal articles I am most proud of are:
