  I’ve been a “planner” practically since I was born.  My parents love to tell stories of how type-A I have been since childhood – sticking to a schedule, being one with my school planner, and planning vacation itineraries down to the minute.  Similarly, I have always loved setting goals and intentions, especially at the […]
