2016 - Keep on Keepin' On / by Brett Holman

I keep hearing that 2016 wasn't the best of years. I guess it's easy to see all the negativity and there are a lot of reasons to be frustrated. It was a tough year but a great year nonetheless. The constant in my life is change and there was plenty of that. We moved back to California and both started new jobs. The abbreviated version is that Liz and I always follow opportunity and those opportunities made sense. I'm eternally grateful for her ability to always be supportive throughout OUR journey.

We worked, we traveled, we ate, we adopted the best dog ever, and we even bought a house. I look around and I still see a lot of good in the world but it's tough sometimes to wonder where this world is headed. I won't give up because it's not an option. I'm fortunate to still be out there smiling and following my passions even with all the negative distractions. I hope you all have a great rest of the year and keep on keepin' on in 2017. Keep spreading the love, following those passions and giving back whenever you can.
