Hello all ... With everything going on in our country right now, it just seems so wrong to be writing the usual newsletters or blogs. It's January 15th and I have been pondering this since Christmas.

I have loved keeping a reflective journal. I can see my growth and progress over the year. I can see what I've achieved as well as what challenged me - and what also may challenge me!

I have learnt a great deal about myself and my skills, but it just didn’t “spark joy” as Marie Kondo would say. So I picked it up, I thanked it, and I put it to the side.
