The end of 2015 is near and for the last couple of days, I have been reflecting on what this year has been for me both professionally and personally.  I started off the year with the expectation that there was going to be some changes and I was not disappointed.

Professionally, I changed jobs to further a career in public relations. The offer started with an email from a local healthcare public relations company who saw my profile on LinkedIn and reached out to me.  During this journey, there has been some challenges but it has been a worthy experience.  As I round out this year, I have embarked on my writing career developing articles on green living for Examiner.com.  My initial article, Drought stricken Los  Angeles looks at use of storm runoff and it has gone pretty well in the first 48 hours and my income will reflect a positive change in lifestyle as I grow as a writer.

Personally, there have been a couple of health issues with myself and my youngest child.  We have both come out on the other side doing better and feeling stronger. It is important that you always seek medical assistance as soon as you feel off in any way.

Going into 2016, there are no resolutions just the commitment to further grow professionally and work on me as a person as I head into the year with a soon-to-be high school graduate and a goal to make a difference using the written word.  Additionally, I encourage everyone to go outside of your comfort zone and do something you have always wanted to do to enrich your life and make a difference to others.
