Interview of the Month
An Interview with
by Susan Edwards Colson, Esq.
Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe that 2016 has drawn to a close. Of course, the start of a new year gives us time to reflect on successes from the past and anticipate the future. I once had a friend who was part of a military family, which meant that every few years she moved. I, who lived in the same house, same neighborhood, same school my entire childhood, wondered about all those moves and what they meant to her. She said, “I always think to myself: Who do I want to be this time? The “fun” kid? The “good girl”? Or maybe the “creative one?” I get a chance to put everything aside and try on a new me.” I always think of her and what a great perspective she had toward change. After all, who doesn’t love a fresh start?
