Little Thoughts

Whole Living magazine is one of my favorites. I love their articles on healthy whole foods and supplements. They also have a feature in each issue, 10 Thoughts on Whole Living. I love reading these little positive thoughts, they just make you feel good. Here are a some of my favorites from the current issue:

Make this the year you follow through

Other people may have opinions about where your life is headed, but only you have the power to prove them wrong.

Seek out foods that sustain, nourish, and warm you.

Creativity goes beyond sheer artistry, it takes courage to express your feelings.

An ending doesn't have to be sad. It's the only way to begin something new.

2010 In a Nutshell

In 2010...

I made new friends, broke my precious macbook, bought a new macbook, helped friends make a better life for themselves, moved out of home, went to the funeral of my Aunt, watched my cousins cry in pain from losing their mother, started graduate school, My friend Anna moved across country to California, had a broken heart, left a job that I absolutely loved to begin my real teaching career, missed my Delaney friends terribly, began teaching at The First Academy, turned 26, babysat A LOT, learned that change is very hard, spent the month of October in Halloween chaos, started selling Thirty One Gifts, became more obsessed with monogramming, and the list goes on...

Let's just say 2010 was a hard year. A lot of change and heartache made me stronger. I am looking forward to what 2011 has to bring, and what God has planned for me this year!
