Yesterday I had lunch with my super cute friend Joelle Duff. We've known each other since we were three years old and have been friends ever since. Life has definitely gotten in the way over the years and we don't get to see each other too often. But we had a fun afternoon yesterday eating delicious food at the Corner Bakery (you have to try the chicken pesto sandwich), enjoying yogurt at Golden Spoon, and picking up a few essentials at the Brea Mall. Joelle has the cutest blog! Check it out at wherewelove.blogspot.com. Joelle came up with this fun idea for 101 things she wants to do in 1001 days. Well she got me totally inspired to write down my goals and new years resolutions (one of which is to start blogging more...hence my first post in like 2 months). I found this great article on the Real Simple website this morning called "9 Secrets of Motivated People". Most of the ideas were things I had heard before like telling people what your goals are and making sure you write them down but one of the ideas I loved was to "remember the deeper meaning." They talk about not just focusing on the end goal but learning to enjoy the journey. Gordon B. Hinckley once said "Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured." So that's going to be one of my main goals this year and I've decided that Miley Cyrus is providing my theme song: "The Climb" (don't scoff...I love me some Miley). And once I've got a more refined list of new years resolutions I'm going to share them on this blog so all 3 of my readers can help keep me on track!
