As 2016 becomes 2017, hopefully goals and resolutions will be met. Many people want to make the year better and make themselves better as well.  My goal this upcoming year is to be more spontaneous. I want life to be full of great adventures and memories that shall be remembered, and I want to encourage others to live life in the moment. You’re only going to live this life once; that’s all you get, but if you do it right and fulfill your wildest dreams, once is enough.
