what’s your story?


happy new year!  it’s a new start for all of us at once. i love that we get a chance to collectively hit the reset button and change the way we’ve been eating, acting and thinking we all have resolutions, great ideas and big plans but my hope is that first we take the time to get in touch with ourselves, our bodies, our minds and the world around us. as we do that, let’s not forget that loving and nurturing ourselves first is the best way to affect change and share our visions. we all have a story to tell, so let yours unveil itself to become a masterpiece that’s revealed instead of fighting the current. we’re exactly where we’re supposed to be, so ride that wave, sing your song and express yourself! no one else will ever come close to being you so take the opportunity to BLOOM! happpiest new year and all the best to you and everyone you love in this brand spankin new year! bonne année mes chers amis!

    Hello, friend. I wanted to stop by and thank you for being a part of my blog in 2013. You have been a blessing to me. For the coming year, I have a few wishes for you.

    May 2014 bring you much joy.
    May we all have peace in our homes,
    laughter by our firesides,
    time spent with family,
    and contentment in our hearts.
    Be well, my friend.

    Sage advice, Claudia. I have been meditating on what I really want for myself this year. My next step will be to make a vision board with these things. Then I shall take steps to achieve them!
