Staying Comfy and Passing Along Great Advice

            I know, I know. I’m late with this blog. But it seems to me the beginning of a new year requires some sort of  “resolutions” post, and, unlike so many of my friends who’ve blogged fabulous ideas about how to start the year, I find myself woefully under-qualified in this area.
            Perhaps because of a l-o-o-ong history of making resolutions only to break them in a matter of weeks...days...hours, I feel more comfortable receiving this sort of advice rather than giving it. And although I know it’s healthy to step out of our comfort zones occasionally, I also know it’s sometimes good to simply yield to the experts. So while I can’t offer any original insights on how to get your year started right, I can pass on the wisdom of others. And that’s what I’m doing.
            Please check out these bloggers to learn fresh, inspiring ways to jump-start a successful 2014:

Wishing you a new year that is full of hope!




  1. Thank you for...
    1.) ...the bouquet. On this wintry day, I've been longing for flowers! How did you know?
    2.) ...introducing me to Ann Voskamp's lovely post. I'm guessing I'm going to re-read her 25 several times before I'm finished.
    3.) ...mentioning my blog.

    Happy New Year!

    1. You're welcome, Brandi. As I told you, your post on making a list really inspired me. I started writing my own post about "lists," but then realized I was pretty much repeating what you'd said. So rather than re-invent the wheel, I just linked to your great advice!

  2. I really liked the 25 for Sanity Manifesto, and it reminds me that one of my goals for the year, for life, should be to search out ways to grow spiritually. To think more consciously of myself as a spiritual being and to nurture that as my essential core. I'm not expressing it very well, but thank you for reminding me of that!

    BTW, really enjoying TRAVELING MERCIES. :)

    1. Sonia, I'd also set growing in my faith as a goal for this year. When I discovered Ann Voskamp's post, I was excited to find she had listed many tangible, practical ways to do that.

      Glad you're enjoying the book!
