2015 . . . The Year of Quality!

"In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years." -- Abraham Lincoln

For me, 2015 will be the Year of Quality. I don't want to "do it all" -- just the best stuff! I won't spread myself thin going to every party -- just the ones I really want to attend. I won't buy every shiny trinket that catches my eye -- just the ones I know will really make an impact. I won't eat every single cookie that crosses my path -- just the ones I know will be ...

For me, 2015 will be the Year of Quality. I don't want to "do it all" -- just the best stuff! I won't spread myself thin going to every party -- just the ones I really want to attend. I won't buy every shiny trinket that catches my eye -- just the ones I know will really make an impact. I won't eat every single cookie that crosses my path -- just the ones I know will be worth it. I want to actually have fewer things and experiences in 2015 -- so I can really focus on the ones that make me happy.

I'm determined. I'm ferocious. I'm ready to keep banging my head against the wall until I figure out what will work for me. I see now that it isn't enough to lose weight -- it has to be sustainable, you have to be able to keep it off. There is no magic recipe -- the formula for success is constantly changing. And I am determined to keep up.

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog! Hearing that makes me so happy! Over the past year or so I've been fortunate enough to meet some amazing women who have inspired me to embrace my natural shape and even the parts of my body I used to hate. They have showed me that beauty comes in all different shapes and sizes and what really matters is that you're happy, healthy and confident in your own skin. I think that's why it made me feel so happy and honored to be called a positive body role model by you! Thank you.

And I also wanted to say that I've been following your journey and I find your attitude so inspirational and refreshing! Keep up the amazing work and let's show 2015 what we're made of :)
