Embrace…

New Year’s is coming and this is the time of year where we all reflect and make resolutions to change ourselves for the better. Don’t. You don’t have to change anything about yourself – trying to change who we are is kind of crazy. We are not broken, we are not in need of fixing. That said, I do think we are here to grow and learn. Growth stems from acceptance and in many ways change is consequential to that growth.

Do you. Embrace yourself for who you are imperfections and all. After all, it is our imperfections that make us perfectly human. What would the world be like if we looked at our imperfections as an opportunity for greater awareness? Maybe we would begin to see our weakest attributes as our strongest gifts. This is something I’ve been thinking about today.

It’s been said so many times before, but we really are better when we think together. At my WW workshop, my friend Beth mentioned this great new app: Paprika.

I have to say, it is amazing! I think it’s going to be very helpful. It organizes and saves recipes. It creates shopping lists and it is just the tool that this fledgling cook needs. I think I can create menus for the week using this app. Anyway, right now, I’m pretty excited to get started with this.

I want to laugh more in 2019. Who is with me?

This is just too funny.

Just because it’s still the holidays and I want to hold onto them for as long as possible...

  1. Jennifer can you direct me to the place in you blog with the link to the Ted talk on happiness? I can’t find it – have no idea when it was there early on or in the last few months…and I would love to see it again. Thanks for any help you can provide!
