Best of Our Blogs: January 2, 2015

Goodbye 2014. We’ve had a year long relationship with you. There’s been pain, loss, and heartache. Not to mention hope, courage and joy. It’s been real.

Welcome 2015! We don’t know you yet. But we’re excited by your fresh, shiny and glimmering presence. We’re trading our old selves for everything you represent. Health. Transformation. Possibility.

As emails advertising holiday gifts have been aggressively and quickly replaced by messages on resolutions, diets and bucket lists, we’ve also turned the other cheek. Instead of spending time to reflect on 2014, we’re excited to jump ahead, delve right into new ways of eating and being in the world. We haven’t yet given a chance to grieve the end of one year before we start planning and dreaming about the next one.

Do you really want to be successful in 2015? Before you start tackling that resolutions list, read our posts this week. You’ll find a little bit of contemplation, pause and reflection will get you closer to all the things you really desire in life-love, happiness, purpose and self-acceptance.
