Happy New Year!

I hope you have a happy new year! And that this year is one of getting to know yourself and those closest to you. I get reflective this time of year and I'm all about sharing my deep thoughts with my blog readers. Ask yourself:

What makes you happy?

I'm learning that you have to know the answer to that question in order to help yourself be happy...and sometimes we need to help ourselves.

What do you want?


What do you want?


What do you want?

be brave.

What do you love?

dieting in life is good. discipline is needed. structure helps. goals push us forward. But, don't get rid of what you love most. What am i saying? Diet, but don't get rid of dark chocolate. Create a schedule for discipline, but leave room for resting/sabbath. Set goals for your emotional, physical and spiritual well being, but live in grace because you're not perfect and neither is life.

What do you want this next year to be? to change? to not be?

Write it out. I'm a huge fan of journaling.
