Another year has come and gone. Now that I’m a grown-up, the years seem to go by so much faster than when I was a kid. One day my kiddo is a newborn and the next she’s 11 and listening to Adele’s new album 21 on repeat. If there’s one thing for certain, it’s that time continues to tick on even if we aren’t ready for it.
The New Year is a perfect time to remember to take stock of what’s important (staying mindful, feeling gratitude, eating healthy, spending time with family) and toss out those things that aren’t (saying yes to anything you don’t want to do, living your life in “shoulds”, SlimFast shakes, you get the idea).
This coming week I’ll have a new Gwyneth recipe to share. But in the meantime, enjoy your New Year’s Eve however you wish to spend it. I’ll be hanging with my family at home eating sushi because the thought of going to some crowded event downtown gives me hives. See how I said “no” to something I didn’t want to do? It gets easier the more you do it. Practice it a lot this year. Trust me, it’ll change your life.
