The holidays are over, and things are packed up nicely and put away, (a little bitter sweet right?) With this new year, it comes with a new ideas, plans, new goals, and a “New Year New Me!” A few weeks ago, I spent sometime thinking about a word I wanted for this year and all though a lot of words came to mind, I finally fell upon “positive” Its so easy to get wrapped up in the negative, the whoa is me, the unfair, etc. I wanted to change that, because all though I am not ungrateful and I do count my blessings, it still can be hard. We are taught (or I have been anyway) that we don’t compare ourselves etc. or that we shouldn’t. However, I think its only human that we compare and even if at times we don’t mean to, we do. I don’t want that in my life anymore, in any way shape or form, its toxic, stupid, and plain ridiculous. I want only positive thoughts, ideas, feelings, etc. I think when you wake up with a “positive” attitude about how your going to act, react, and feel for the day it helps a ton, and even sets the mood/tone for your day. I have been a lot happier acting on that word and implying it in my life a lot more. Along with this new word and “new me” I decided to hit up my local Walmart store and pick up some magazines. I normally don’t even buy magazines, (I have plenty to read and look at on social media) that said, there is something about sitting, relaxing, cuddling up, (with a diet coke) and reading some great magazine. I actually picked up two that in the past I have flipped through at the checkout many times. I chose All You® or Real Simple® magazines to devour, HA! I loved seeing the healthy recipe ideas, healthy life ideas and tips, fashion, and even some great love stories (“Real Simple® had in their magazine for Valentines). Reading magazines aka these two magazines helped me focus more on my “positive” word for the year. I read a lot of “good mood food” stuff, and looked at a lot of great pictures too. All these things inspire me and motivate me more, for the new year, new word, and new me! that is a win win in my book

Inspiration comes from all over, and I found a lot in these great magazines. Diet coke, some DIY pom poms, and some good reads, makes for one happy positive me aka jen!
