Future Letter to Myself: 2018

It’s the end of the year, which means it’s time for New Year’s Resolutions. As I have for the last few years, I’m writing a future letter to myself — a different take on resolutions and goals for 2018. What is a future letter to oneself?

As I shared in my 2014 Future Letter to Myself, one thing I want to do this year is start complete a scrapbook about our time in El Salvador. I’d like to create a scrapbook per post (although for Afghanistan, it’ll probably be more focused on our R&R trips!).

2013 Intention Review: A Letter to Myself

I shared my 2014 Future Letter to Myself last week, and now that 2013 is fully over, I wanted to share the “results” of my 2013 annual letter.
