twenty thirteen.

January 1 always comes with new resolutions. A vow to go to the gym, lose that extra 10, 15, 20 lbs, to eat better, to say “yes” more, to write on that blog you started months ago…
This year, instead of placing all of these resolutions on myself that are usually thrown out the window by February, I want to focus more on things that I can accomplish that are actually obtainable. So here they are, feel free to hold me to them.

Run the NYC Marathon. Write on this blog. Run the LI Half Marathon. Do a 30-day yoga challenge. Stay present. Get involved with more play dates. 
Stay positive. Project love & support to those around me. Learn something new. Take a trip. Explore more creative outlets. Be Fearless.

Ready, set, go…

the beginning.

{pursuit of happiness}

this first post marks the beginning of a journey that doesn’t have a set ending. with no ending in site, a task can seem long, unbearable and completely daunting. they say that the adventure lies in the journey, not the destination. that being said, we still need to know where we are going & the answer to that is to find happiness.

that’s not to say that i’m not happy. i am. i have a wonderful husband, a smart & fun loving little boy and an extended family that is supportive, caring and funny. but i want to learn to appreciate the little moments, to truly be grateful for all the amazing things that do come my way & to not dwell in the negativity.

it’s easy to get caught up in the sunday blues, the monday morning blues, the weekday afternoon lows…we can probably just categorize this as the weekday doldrums. it doesn’t have to be soo bad. we need to think of monday morning as a launch pad for a week of adventures. yes, ok there is work involved – there are spreadsheets and meetings but there are also laughs with coworkers, lunches, breaks to walk in the park. sweet little moments that are shared with friends that are the pick-me ups i need to be more grateful for.

so starting now, we are on a mission to destination happy. along the way, i hope to write my own rules on what defines happiness for me. stick with me?
