#HD12

On The Big Bible Project this morning we ran a story about the hashtag we're seeking to get going, #HD12, which stands for Hopes & Dreams for 2012. 2011 2011 has been a difficult year. In February 2009 I qualified as a Life Coach, aspects of which have affected much of my practice within work, but also my life itself.
