Happy Friday (bah! it's actually Saturday!!)
It's been back to school week...for all of us :) The kiddos have been thoroughly enjoying their first days at school, I've had readings to do, and spent time at lectures and in "the tank" practicing counselling skills. It's been a fresh new start to the year.
Some have a word to guide their year, or have set goals or resolutions. As you've entered this new year, what has been on your mind?
I've gathered some articles this week and found time to post them on this Saturday morning :) Hope you enjoy!

Blessings on your weekend!
