Fresh Start

Fresh Start

I hate New Year’s Eve but I love the start of a new year. There’s something powerful about endings and beginnings. You can cast away the past and look ahead. I don’t make resolutions. They never last. I try to prioritize. But also to give myself a break when I make mistakes.

Great Expectations

I set the bar pretty high. For others but mostly for myself. When I promise to do something, I do it. When I say I’ll show up, there I am. If I’m your friend (a real friend vs. LA friend) then I will be there for you. No matter what. Even in horrible LA traffic.
