It’s a brand new year, a fresh start, a chance for new beginnings! I am excited about the year ahead! 2017 brought both ups and downs, which I survived. I feel blessed in so many ways! I have learned a lot about life and myself, and I strive this year to not only keep learning, but to never give up on the development and maintenance of my healthy habits. Mistakes will be made, but it’s all about progress and not perfection! I found this quote which I love.

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are
making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”

    "The moments that you will remember forever....
    The ones of laughing until you cried, that perfect night,
    and the feeling of love in your arms. It's that endless song,
    that incredible book and most beautiful movie.
    It's the moments where you had to be there to feel it, when you randomly
    bump into someone you haven't seen or heard from in years.
    It's that feeling of receiving an unexpected gift.
    It's when you risk it all and put it all on the line.
    They're the inside jokes with your best friend.
    It's the moments of true happiness that come from the simplest things.
    These moments define our lives. They are our lives.
    They make life worth living and sometimes they reveal our weaknesses to the world.
    These moments are the most important thing in life.
    They make you feel incredibly and indescribably infinite."
