Welcome to New Focus Daily and to 2019!   How did THAT happen? A new year already? If you are like me, time seems to go by soooo quickly these days.    While I am always amazed at how quickly that happens AND a little sad, I am always excited about starting fresh and what’s ahead.

What is your vision for 2019?  I know many of us make resolutions.    I am one of those who tends to make resolutions at random times of the year, so I don’t have a lengthy list of things every January, but I always have one or two things around this time of the year that I decide I really want to work on.   Also, I usually pick one word to focus on during the year that is meaningful to me.  Last year I had two, one of which was “focus” – which I feel like I did well, having accomplished several things I really wanted to accomplish – and the second being “peace,” which is something most of us could probably use a little more of in all aspects of life.   For 2019, my word is “courage” – which can be so important as we face challenges in life, both the “good” challenges as well as the challenges that might be not-so-good. Courage! I hope to find it when I need it and hope that some of our featured articles will also foster a sense of courage for those that need it.  We have some incredible Untold feature stories planned that are sure to invoke a sense a courage as well as amazement, gratitude, and so much more. Just wait, and you’ll see what I am talking about!  

At New Focus Daily, our featured articles focus on inspiration, education, empowerment, and helping our readers to be the best that they can be.   Whether your goals for the new year – or in life in general – are health-related, financial, personal, or something else entirely, NFD strives to inspire readers to live better and be better.  Look for articles this coming year that include food, finances, legal, home/DIY, self-help, inspiration and personal interest, and MORE.  Through our published feature stories, we seek to help our readers be their own best selves, which is an amazing feeling! And just maybe readers will even find a little bit of courage if they need it – there’s my 2019 word – especially in reading through some of the Untold features which will often leave tears in your eyes and that sense of “wow – simply amazing” feeling.

Let’s start 2019 excited and enthused about what is yet to come -let’s GO!
