Here we go again

For months I’ve agonized over whether or not to continue writing about #OneGoodThing each day, a project which started as a New Year’s resolution three years ago today. I knew with clarity that I wasn’t done last January 1st, same as the January 1st before that. But this year, I considered ending the series at…
