As January unfolds, it’s important to take note of where you are in your life -- be grateful, but also be aware of the goals you wish to achieve in the future.

Gratitude is number one and is proven over and over to greatly improve your quality of life.

When creating goals and resolutions, make sure you stay in your own lane and avoid comparing your lives to others. With social media, it’s hard not to be a voyeur and take note of what others have, comparing them to yourself.

If you are feeling blue as we enter 2016, start a gratitude journal. Write 3 things you are grateful for daily and please, please write this quote somewhere:

 “comparison is the thief of joy."

Stay in your own lane and be committed to your own definition of success, but don't forget to enjoy the journey ;).
