2015 . . . The Year of Quality!

"In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years." -- Abraham Lincoln

For me, 2015 will be the Year of Quality. I don't want to "do it all" -- just the best stuff! I won't spread myself thin going to every party -- just the ones I really want to attend. I won't buy every shiny trinket that catches my eye -- just the ones I know will really make an impact. I won't eat every single cookie that crosses my path -- just the ones I know will be ...

For me, 2015 will be the Year of Quality. I don't want to "do it all" -- just the best stuff! I won't spread myself thin going to every party -- just the ones I really want to attend. I won't buy every shiny trinket that catches my eye -- just the ones I know will really make an impact. I won't eat every single cookie that crosses my path -- just the ones I know will be worth it. I want to actually have fewer things and experiences in 2015 -- so I can really focus on the ones that make me happy.

I'm determined. I'm ferocious. I'm ready to keep banging my head against the wall until I figure out what will work for me. I see now that it isn't enough to lose weight -- it has to be sustainable, you have to be able to keep it off. There is no magic recipe -- the formula for success is constantly changing. And I am determined to keep up.

Thanks for the lovely salad. I thoroughly enjoyed it, right to the bottom of the bowl. :)

Thanks for the blog comment. I think a lot of people here on Spark are in the same boat during these cold Winter months. It's just so hard to feel motivated when it's cold, you don't want to get out of a warm bed, or leave the warm confines of the house. Hopefully as the weather we will all be feeling more motivated to make positive changes in ourselves.

Of course changing jobs, or in my case, going back to work after years of unemployment, throws things off for a while. But again, hopefully, these changes lead to more positive feelings and actions.
