Happy New Year! I know I'm a little late to the party--but I've been recovering from all the festivities. I started a detox on Monday and I feel great! I'll be sharing recipes and tips on how to do a whole food cleanse here and on my instagram all next week!
With a new year comes new resolutions. I thought I'd share a few of mine, and hopefully you'll share a few of yours! If you have any tips to help me with my resolutions, I'd love your advice.
I am making a commitment to my health-physical, emotional, and spiritual. As many of you know, I love working out, cooking healthy meals, and doing yoga. The problem is, I don't do these things consistently. This year, I want to stay committed to my well being. I believe that we spend a lot of our time overcommitting to "stuff" that doesn't necessarily make our lives better. It's time to say no to what doesn't matter and start saying yes to what does--like taking care of ourselves.
I am going to be positive! I've been reading Susie Pearl's "Instructions for Happiness and Success" which is based on the law of attraction. Essentially, you have believe great things are going to happen in order for great things to happen. It seems like a simple concept but I honestly struggle with it. As an attorney (to be) I tend to overanalyze situations and think about all the things that might go wrong. I've noticed however, when I believe that good things are going to happen, the goodness keeps flowing in. So this year, I want to maintain a positive mindset, because I know it's going to be an amazing year.
I want to love without fear. Life is hard. It tests you, scares you, and crushes you. But it's also beautiful--it shows you what you can achieve, how strong you are, and how much love your heart is capable of. There have been a few (okay maybe more) times where I wanted to give up on love. I wanted to hide behind my walls, freeze my heart in a pretty glass box, and basically be Elsa. But what is a life without love? Happiness is love (according to me and this Harvard study). So even though it seems damn near impossible, I want to have this be a year of love without worry. Wish me luck :)
Whew, that was pretty long, and if you made it through, thanks for reading. 2014 was an amazing year. I finally launched this blog that I'd been dreaming about for so long. I feel like I win the lotto every time I see someone read a post, so thank you so much to each and every one of you! May 2015 be a year of growth--for me, for you, and for our little gold book. Cheers!
