Happy New Year 2019! A New Year, A New You!

Excited about 2019? I know that I am! I recently found the art of Heather Stillufsen and I love it! You can find it on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/RoseHillDesignStudio. Her “Every day Art” is inspiring and thoughtful. Perfect for the new year and the new and improved me.

What about you?

Every year, we all make new year’s resolutions to be better: more than we were last year. To eat healthy, lose weight, be more productive/assertive/caring/effective, etc.

This year, I want to publish two books, I published one is 2018 (Emma’s Heart, the first in the Echo Village Series).


To help us along our journey in this new year, here are some books, articles, and products that I have found.

Guide to Weight Watchers Including a 30 Day Meal Plan for Rapid Weight Loss (Weight Watchers Cookbook) (Volume 1)

This is a healthy and easy to follow plan that can help begin the weight-loss/healthy eating plan that many of us promise ourselves that we will do each year. It includes menu plans and easy to follow recipes.

As we all try to build new positive habits and break old negative habits, a good reference is:

Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones


It’s a great read and has information that everyone could use.

A blog that I find inspiring and that has me questioning myself and changing my internal dialogue is:

Pointless Overthinking: Understanding Ourselves And The World That We Live In.


With the right tools, a positive attitude, and determination, I believe that we can all reach our goals and become the better version of ourselves that we hope to be!

I wish all of us a wonderful 2019.

Happy New Year!
