A Year of Dreams.

This life is full of uncertainties.  It will swirl you around until you can't take any more and then demand that you walk a straight line.

It is unbearable and exhilarating.  It is a ride that you have one chance to enjoy.  You either spend your time clinging desperate to the side, learn how to fake it, or actually find your bliss in it's dips and peaks.

We have allowed our lives to live us for far too long.  We have followed in it's wake of demands and fallen short repeatedly of what we think it wants from us.  As we pause, take stock of our yesterdays and hopes for tomorrow, the brevity of our future looms.  It will either flatten us or persuade us to push higher, farther, and deeper to our passions and longings.  This life is worth living.

I hope that you decide to take complete hold of yours.

As you are staring at your long line of resolutions, goals, or hopes for the new year, I hope that what tops your list is not lose ten pounds, get healthier, sleep more, exercise constantly, rather I wish that you would place first and foremost a desire to live fully, each, and every day.

That your goals would be to pursue your desires until they become your realities.  To not let go of your dreams based on your circumstances or your fears.  Go out there, pursue your hearts greatest wish.  It can only come true if you make it happen.

No one will ever 'discover' you, it is up to you to make yourself known.

Be your own shooting star.

Peace joy and love in this brilliant and fabulous New Year.  Here is to 2014.

New Years Day.

Happy New Year!

What an exciting day.  I love the start of the new year, the freshness that comes from a blank slate.  I plot out my goals and hopes for how I want the year to go.

This start is the most interesting I've yet to experience.  My house has been placed in storage, my husband is 4 hours away, and we have no idea what is going to come next.  We thought we had everything lined up and then all of the doors that seemed wide open, shut in our faces.

It's an adventure and I am looking forward to enjoying every moment.  My children and I are up at my parents house, enjoying the fresh mountain air, and the soul cleansing that comes from being in the country.

We have no idea what this year holds, but we plan to find a landing place, to settle, to cultivate deep roots.  There's a lot of blind faith and trust happening in our hearts.

I am not clouding my new year with resolutions.   I don't want to tip the scales toward failure.  I've set some goals that I look forward to reaching and I hope to take you along the journey.  I'll be blogging regularly about health and wellness, reaching goals, posting recipes, and living a rich and satisfying life.

I'm excited for this year and I hope that you are, too.  I wish you well, the fulfilling of your dreams.
