"I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances."

Happy New Year!!

January 1st, 2015. 
Day 1 of a new year, a fresh start. What will this year hold for me? 

 I decided not to make resolutions this year.  I've  always made them but never stuck with them and always ended up feeling like a failure by February.  I'm sure I'm not alone on that. 

 I decided to chose a few words and phrases for the year.   Some things to live by and inspire me for 2015. 

Here they are in no particular order:

    1. Love myself - something I have to work on every day. I have struggled with this since junior highschool, so much as it almost cost me my life. I need to take time for myself and be comfortable in my skin. This is something I must work on for me but more importantly for my two young daughters. I must lead by example and be a good role model. 

    2. Pay it forward - I am very blessed and love to give back. I want to show my daughters how it feels even better to give then to receive. 

    3. Follow my passions - Follow through and try the things I haven't done yet but have always wanted to!

    4. Enjoy - Stop to 'smell the roses' more and enjoy the little things. Life is short, enjoy the ride. 

Are you making resolutions this year? If yes, what are they?
