This is my year that I have been focused on transforming myself into a happier and healthier version of myself. One way I hope to do that is through changing the way I speak about myself. It seems like an easy goal for the new year, but it is hard. I know that I am not alone on this goal when I cam across Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations with Bishop T.D. Jakes. And you know that if Oprah promotes it then it is going to be amazing.
I have lived in Texas for most of life. Texas has prided itself on a strict conservative values. When it comes to justice system that can mean harsh punishments. In the state of Texas, a guilty man can be sentenced to death. Texas is not the only state in the United States, but it is important to the the setting of this story. In a recent episode on the Economist, they did a special feature on a private detective responsible for helping overturn death penalty cases in Texas. With the title of Lifesaver, you know it was going to be an interesting story.
Creativity gives you the power to create amazing things. But if someone asked the question of where did it come from, I can’t answer that. I don’t think anyone currently can. I was listening to TED Talk Radio Hour when they discussed this very topic.
It seems like the easiest and obvious way to improve you health in the new year is by making sure you get your sleep. The kind of sleep that leaves you ready to conquer the day. When you can go all day with no naps. However, I can’t remember the number of times I have stared at my ceiling late at night trying to figure out why I can’t sleep. Who else is with me? So maybe it is the great first step toward having a healthier in a new year.
A goal of the new year for me has been to work on being happier and healthier. One of the ways I hope to accomplish that goal is by learning how to erase the negative voice in my head. But it is easier said than done when it comes to erasing self doubt.
Then I was gifted with the book, The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown. She has been featured on Oprah and TED Talks. She is a writer and research. She breaks down the shame and fear we face in life such as the fear of standing out or being enough. She explains the psychological why along with how we can reverse the process. In the end, readers and practicers of these steps will move toward what she calls “wholehearted living” or simply embracing who you are.
The year has just started and I am so excited for the items on the horizon. You each have inspired me to continue and create. You have commented with sweet words, and added amazing comments to some awesome pieces. So this year, I wanted to open my writing to all of you.
If you are like me, healthy restaurants makes you think of inconvenient and possibly not tasty. I am happy to say Flower Child is different.
Christmas movies easily gets anyone ready for old Saint Nick to make his annual trip. They make you smile and giggle. You bond with family and friends while watching them as well. So this Christmas Eve, I have decided to compile my top 5 Christmas movie list that I would recommend for a movie marathon tonight.
It is the start of winter today according to the calendar, but it might as well have started back in November. So it is time to create my new seasonal bucket list for winter this year.
