Normally at this point in the year, I have a massive to-do list. I’ve carefully considered my goals for the year, broken the big goals into bite-sized monthly pieces, and then set up what I need to do each week to hit the monthly portion.
It’s been a while since I stopped listening to my instincts, trusting my intuition. I’ll take an art workshop that involves tuning in, but I fall back out of touch with my inner voice as soon as the course ends.
I’m not sure what the problem is, exactly, but everyone I talk to rates 2017 somewhere between “meh” and “horrible.” It just hasn’t been a favorite year for a lot of people. Admittedly, I’m one of those. Sort of.

I don’t know how your social media looks right now, but mine is off the rails. Facebook, specifically, but I see it in other places, too.
