I know it’s been a week or two since you’ve heard from me but much like most of you, I have been relaxing, recharging, spending time with loved ones and getting ready to press reset on my attitude and lifestyle for the New Year.
People tend to under estimate the true value of a thing called rest. Myself being no different from everyone else.
