One of the most famous Christmas quotes of all time is this one from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens: “I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” Reflecting on this quote has made me think about resolutions a little differently for 2016.  I would like you to join me in a different […]

A Simple “Yes” Makes All the Difference

Recently, an old college friend I had not seen in years asked me an interesting question: “How did you make such a profound change in your life?” This person, who knew me 20+ years ago from our wild days at the University of Georgia, wondered how I could have gone from a carefree, hedonistic lifestyle with an aversion to any […]
