NYE Resolution

I've never been much of a New Year's "resolution" type, so I've redefined it for myself with a bit of a twist. This is a NYE's resolution, if you will.

Between the holidays and a big job application I recently finished, I've spent a lot of time in the last month reflecting on 2014. Having only started in February, this was an amazing first year for ITLT and I'm beyond proud of what the team has accomplished. Personally though, 2014 was challenging to say the least. Between medical diagnoses and seemingly-never-ending-quarter-life-existential crises, I'm left feeling emotionally exhausted with not many more answers than I had going into 2014. The year, however, was full of learning and adventures, which many people contributed to -- a few I can't seem to get out of my head!

Upon your reflection, who are five people that made a positive impact on your life in 2014? It might be hard to narrow the list; it was for me! I tried to pick people who I might not necessarily reach out to on a regular basis, or maybe someone who went out of their way to make a personal difference. I'm thinking about more amazing people even as I type this, so I may have to repeat this project every several months...

You can write letters, cards, postcards, or quick little notes; I chose an arbitrary number of five recipients,  you can select however many... it's really the thought that counts.

But we are hosting an...

Instagram Contest
