Hello! Hello! I hope you all are doing well since the new year has begun! (Ahem, My birthday was Jan.13th By the way ;). / I think 2015 is going to be extra special. Of course, I am thankful for everyday- but as we evolve and grow, to me, it just keeps getting better. Some days not so much maybe. I know there can be rough periods in our life that we wish would hurry up and get outta there! (Believe me, I know). But then there are those moments afterwards that are the sweetest. Like right now, for me. I hate saying this, cause please don't go out there and try to get sick (Lol.) But I feel so renewed after being sick. I started the year off with a bit of a cold, sore throat, etc. I was out of work for a few days. And I just decided to sleep those days. I don't go to Dr.'s anymore for actual antibiotics unless it's completely necessary. (You should really research the effects of antibiotics). So I take matters in my own hands. Eating raw garlic, (Yeah, I said it :/ ) And taking Wellness Formula, seriously the best thing I ever discovered. And also taking Good Belly & making ginger tea, and juicing ginger. All of which did help, but it does take it's sweet time to get out of your body. But regardless, it happened. I think the thing is after being sick, or maybe even when you've indulged a bit too much. You just don't feel very good, and not clean. And I typically want to clean my house and clean up my diet. Which is exactly what I'm doing!
-I'm pretty excited, cause part of doing so- I got two new books from the store. One is a journal, and one is a 2015 planner. Very exciting. I love journals & notebooks. I also am updating this website! So you'll be seeing some new things happening here shortly ;) Oh and some re-vamped recipes. More on that later.
But I wanted to write this because after just having my birthday & starting the new year with all of our resolutions, I wanted to talk about balance. Balancing any new goals or regimens isn't easy. Even starting something new and trying to make it a ritual isn't so easy :/ Again, believe me I know.
But give it a go! A real go! I want to use a reference that you may or may not like, sorry for this- I know I'm a cheese ball. But I was watching Devil Wears Prada yesterday. Sort of a *spoiler alert* if you haven't seen it and want to... But Anne Hathway's character works at an office for a very mean high end designer. And she just got chewed out once again by the Designer boss lady & she runs out and goes to talk to her only sort of a friend, co worker. And he says that deep down, you know you aren't reaaaally trying. And how she wants to cry about it, etc. And asks what do you want me to say, "Poor you? Poor you?" And I just really started to think about that in different aspects of my life. (Oh wait, and then after that scene she gets a make over and comes back into the office totally owning it. Yes!) *End spoiler alert.* So take it from Devil Wears Prada. Give whatever your trying to make a habit or something a part of your life, apart of you, give it a real real chance. And don't give up. Just don't do that. I'm an actress, wanna be singer, and want to be a more fitness involved person & a super clean, nutritious, eater. But I have to work on it really hard. We all do. Alright ya'll. TGIF!
