30 Day Monthly Resolution

I have been watching Mind Over Munch on YouTube since about November of 2018. I will admit. I got sucked in mainly because of the food prep and the bento lunches. Yes, even the vegetarian and vegan food prep and bento lunches have been appealing. I am excited about trying some of them soon! I also signed up for the newsletter and have actually enjoyed the things Alyssia has discussed in her newsletters. In December one of her emails really caught my attention...enough that I am actually going to make it a part of my #2019YearToRebuild!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! It's time to ring in the year 2018. Are you ready for it? I think I am and I am not. I am ready for a new year and new adventures. I am not ready to say I have done my best for 2017. I am ready for winter to be done and spring to arrive. I am not ready to be closer to turning the big 50 in just over a year.

However, no matter how ready I am or am not, time continues and the New Year will be here in a blink of an eye. As I sit here planning blog posts, filling in my 2018 calendar, and looking ahead to classes and opportunities for second semester, I invite everyone to take the time to honor the events and lessons of 2017 and thank the year for how we have grown. Then, turn towards the new year and welcome it in. Maybe not with open arms, but at least with an open mind and heart.

After all, the New Year is coming. Perhaps this is the year you tackle those obstacles that have been holding you back. Perhaps this is the year you challenge yourself to reach a little higher and a little further. Perhaps this is the year of becoming a better you. Why not make 2018's slogan #newyearnewyear. I think that is my goal!

Here's to a wonderful and prosperous New Year!

It's that Time of Year

It's that time of year. That time where Facebook feeds have "30 Days of Thankful" or twitter posts are 140 characters full of everything one might be thankful for.

Here in central Ohio, we have seen the leaves change colors, we have had a week of temps in the 70s followed by a week of temps in the 30s with SNOW! Some of us still deny the passage of seasons by wearing shorts, sweatshirts, and winter caps. Others have gone full-out with down coats, scarves, gloves, and thermal underwear.

This holiday week many are preparing for traveling to see family and friends. Others are happily enjoying a quiet holiday with a "chosen few."

No matter your political persuasion, we have all been through the ringer lately and have probably shed more than a few tears.

Budgets are stretched tight as many plan for end of the year gift giving holidays. We look for that perfect gift, or that obnoxious gift, or that gift that will keep on giving.

Maybe this time of year marks an opportunity to look inside and around to assess what you have, where you are, and what you want to do with your upcoming days.

Maybe, this time of year is just another day in the year. Maybe......
