Happy New Year 2020! A New Year, A New You!

Hello Friends,

Excited about 2020? I know that I am! If you haven’t found the art of Heather Stillufsen check her out! I love her art and find it very inspirational! You can find it on Etsy: 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 in 2018 (Emma’s Heart: An Echo Village Romance (Echo Village Series Romance Book 1)) and the second in 2019 (Laurel’s Love: An Echo Village Romance Novel).

Now, last year I set a goal of two books as well, but only got one done. I don’t see that as a failure but as a challenge to do better this year. I lost a few pounds and got healthier, all wins for 2019! How about you? Have things changed a lot for you? Let’s make our first goal this year is to write down our goals!

To help us along our journey in this new year, here are some books, articles, and products that I will be using to help myself focus on my larger goals and make smaller tasks to achieve those goals. Check these out if you need inspiration or to bolster your determination!

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 ones, some good references are:

The Greatest You: Face Reality, Release Negativity, and Live Your Purpose Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be Get Out of Your Own Way: A Skeptic’s Guide to Growth and Fulfillment

These are great reads that have 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 2020.

Happy New Year, Happy New You!
