Another year has come and gone. The older you get the faster it seems like time flies. It is hard to believe that 2016 is already over. If there is one thing I relearn every single year it is that times keeps marching on. We cannot stop it, but we can plan for what comes next. With that thought in mind, take some time this month to ponder what you want to accomplish in 2017. It is a new year so think about what does a good year look like for you. What does a great year look like for you? What changes are coming up? What do you want to do?
Back to college
For Gavin – you will go back to college and finish your freshman year. This summer you will need to get a job and earn money for next semester. You will start thinking about what you want to major in and then return to Richmond for your sophomore year. Filling in the rest of the story is up to you. For Riley, it is time for high school soccer, and you will start thinking about what college you want to attend. Grades matter, so do your best. You will also get your license and have a vehicle to drive. Probably time for a summer job.
Back to Europe
I am planning some fun stuff for 2017 – we will return to Europe this summer to visit France (video below describes the potential options). We will likely return to NYC and perhaps visit the West Coast. I want you to think about your plans for 2017. Are there things you want to start doing or do more of, or do less of, or stop doing? Make the time to think about 2017. It will be summer before you know it. Personally, I have set many goals and made plans that I will share over the course of our time together. Happy New Year – hope it is a great one.
In the days of my youth
I was told what it was to be a man
Now I’ve reached the age
I’ve tried to do all those things the best I can
No matter how I try
I find my way to do the same old jam
