November 2017 goals marks the 11th installment of the monthly goal series I started back in 2013. I share goals that I wish to accomplish in the new month and strive to complete them.

I also have a strong belief that if I don’t succeed its ok to move it forward until I do.   October 2017 GOALS October started off very promisingly, I thought I would have time for relaxation and travel times.
