Happy New Year

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my clients a very Happy New Year. May the stories you share in 2017 nourish friendships, evoke peace, and instil a sense of wonder in others. May the stories you hear remind you that you are cared for and loved and that this world is still, despite its human flaws, still a beautiful place that we must honour and respect.

What's the story you want to be telling in 2017? Share it with me in the comments below.
