Is it just me or is there just something oddly exhilarating about ushering in the unfamiliar? I know a good majority of us bought new 2018 calendars, wrote our annual resolutions and tried to envision what this year could possibly bring after a nebulous 2017 took Hugh Hefner and our beloved Chester Pennington.

The reality, though, is that we can never see what’s coming. It’s impossible to for us to prepare for the unknown or anticipate the unforeseen hurdles that befall us all.

We can, however, begin. That is, begin to lay the foundations of the greatness we’re destined to attain. Begin the pursuit of the dream that’s begging to meet reality. Begin asking the toughest questions that demand answers. And, yes, begin again when you fail. It is inevitable, but it is also your greatest momentum.

I can’t quite tell you what 2018 will bring for the F.A.S.H squad, but I can tell you that our family of creatives begins and begins again every day. Every lash, flash and piece of steamed clothing is a mini, yet mighty, piece to the ultimate puzzle that is Fearlessly Aspiring Something Higher.
