What Would Your 2015 in Preview Look Like?

Happy New Year, everyone!

Facebook recently did their annual year in review summary for people to post and/or customize if they wished to, which gave me an idea for a thought and/or writing exercise.

If you were to do a review of your 2015 a year from now, what would it look like?

What do you have coming up that you are planning? What are you hoping for in 2015, whether you do it or it happening to you? Long shot or slam dunk?

Take a little time to think about it all and I hope you’ll like what you come up with!

Best wishes for a joyous and prosperous 2015, everybody! Thanks for coming by my blog!
