Be the Master of Your Own Happiness

It’s about that time of the year where some of us lose steam on our New Years goals and become lenient. As is the case, Trevor and I decided to make February’s theme “for the love of you” here on Edit the Now, which means all our posts this month will be inspiring enough to get you back on track.

Have A Better 2019

I never particularly felt New Year’s Day brought new possibilities and a fresh start while in school (since the beginning of the calendar year falls in the middle of the school year in the USA), but I’ve fully embraced the concept as an adult.
