Let's talk about...
2015 is going to be the year of gratitude for me. I'm going to do my best to live life more, get away from behind my computer, and spend quality time with family, friends, and myself. Yep. Myself.
I have so much to be thankful for in this life. A great job that allows me to work at home and take care of my puppies, a husband who works hard to take care of me, family who supports me and encourages me, friends who help me follow my passions, and hobbies that keep me happy and entertained. I have clean food and water, a roof over my head, clothes on my back, and my health to be grateful for.
With that being said, I also have a lot I can work on, push toward, and make better. In order to help with that, I've become a Beachbody coach! I have high hopes for this new year, my health, and this new business venture. I'll still be working at home, editing, and writing (which is also super exciting this year!), but I'll also spend some time doing that, inspiring others to get healthy and happy. :)
I'm also going to keep writing, like I mentioned above, and release my debut novel sometime in 2015. I'll have two following that one--hopefully fairly quickly. Then I'll be off writing some other stuff. Whatever tickles my fancy. I want to try my hand at collections of short stories, maybe some poetry. Who knows. Whatever floats my boat. <3
All of that makes me happy. But nothing makes me happier than seeing YOU happy, healthy, and full of life and gratitude. And what better way is there to do that than to express it out loud and shout it from the rooftops? Well, you could make a gratitude chain. :)
Anyone with me? It's pretty basic. Cut some strips of paper so you have it ready. Then, each day, write something (different) you're grateful for, thankful for, happy about, in love with, etc. Something positive should go on each link, and you can make a chain of these as a visual, a tangible list of reasons to be happy on any given day.
If you want to take it another step further, you can post your gratitude on Facebook. I'll be doing that along with a photo of some sort every day to keep the thankfulness and positivity flowing on social media. Feel free to join in with me, comment on my posts, and link me to yours. <3 Take pictures of your own chain and share it with the world. Positivity is contagious, so let's spread it!
Big hugs and all my love,
