Can you believe it’s day 20 of your Change Challenge already. Isn’t it amazing when you start a new project or long awaited life change that the time flies by so quickly? That’s why today’s topic is so important. Finishing!

With this in mind, I can’t help asking the question, if we have become so masterful at making choices on these things, why is it that we find it so difficult at times to put this same intention into making life choices?
So on day 17 I’m looking at what’s really important. I’m always amazed at my 9 year old daughter’s game plan. At the beginning of the year she’s all fired up about saving money so she can buy her Christmas presents.
