Sharing my experience; striving for my goal. This journey to a healthier me is about enjoying my grandchildren to the fullest, travelling along the less-beaten path in countries around the world and, someday, rocking beside a cozy fire with a smile on my face knowing I made the world a better place by actively connecting with it every day.

Bigger is Better!
So much of my focus in 2012 was on becoming smaller - fewer inches, smaller portions, lower numbers on the scale, smaller sizes in the closet. That is still ongoing but 2013 is shaping up to be a year of growing bigger:
A bigger heart with room for selfcare - a notion where I can put myself first without feeling selfish!
A bigger heart with room for gratitude - for new friends; new love; new places and new experiences, and;
A bigger heart for courage - courage to change, courage to let go; courage to face fear and triumph.
This special day is much bigger than the sweetness of chocolate or the grandeur of diamonds - it is one that can be marked with - a SMILE. I am discovering the power of a smile - from and to strangers - and realizing, slowly, as Maya Angelou has shared, "A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer; it sings because it has a song."
Love yourself, and then share that feeling, that song, with others - it will make that moment, that day, your life - BIGGER!
