Why This Is Awesome: Kung Hei Fat Choi! Are you ready for the Year of the Dog?

Longtime followers of this blog may recall that I traditionally set my New Years’ goals to align with the beginning of the Lunar New Year, not January 1st. Well, the last few years I’ve tried something different. Yet whether it be not setting goals at all and playing it by ear, or creating a vision board instead of selecting resolutions, I’ve always kept an eye on the Lunar New Year.

According to some sources, the Year of the Earth Dog (2018) is going to be a year of lifestyle changes — both large and small. And if you’re of the entrepreneurial mindset, business aspirations are definitely worth your time and dedication if you hope to see growth fueled by integrity and honesty.

Regardless of whether or not any of this will come to pass, I’ve chosen to share these Lotus Moments to represent our journey into the new lunar year. Why? My folks have a 10-year-old Akita/Alaskan Husky mix who never likes to sit still long enough to take a photo, but whaddayaknow, I somehow managed to snag these precious pics over the weekend.

So I’m taking it as a sign that maybe, just maybe, the sources might be on to something about what the future will bring. Say hi to Ichigo, dear readers. This 120 lbs. of forever-shedding-winter-fur says the foundation we poured last year is ready to carry us forward. Tally ho!
