As it lies before us, we can envision the possibilities associated with a fresh start. There are opportunities to improve, opportunities to dream big, and opportunities to carry this year's accomplishments into next. Here are a few picks to help ring in the new year!

Gratitude Journal

Gratitude is an excellent resolution and one that will change your life. The pages are designed with prompts to guide you and help you stick with gratitude practice. Regarding gratitude, Rustico's founder/CEO says, “One of the common themes I noticed from my daily entries is that often my struggles and challenges were providing the most impactful moments to be grateful for.” See it here and see the special edition here.
