A New Blogventure: Adding Joy and Making Purposeful Change

I love my life.  I have a good family, job that I love, and friends that mean the world to me.  I live in an apartment in my favorite city, drive a reliable car, and have enough money each month to pay my bills, get groceries, and have a little fun on the side.  I am an incurable optimist to begin with, but I'd say I'm very blessed.  Although I am very satisfied with who I am, I will always believe that every small change made to improve my health, perspective on life, and overall happiness can make a huge difference.  Which brings me to the purpose of this post...

For the past few months since I got this blog, I've been looking for my niche--something I could blog about on a regular basis that is actually interesting and attracts the bloggers out there to come back week after week.  Have you ever heard the term, "go 100 mph for 100 yards?"  Well, that is me.  When I get a new idea, I tend to get really excited about it and jump right in, but quickly lose interest.  This of course held true when I got the urge to blog.  I think maybe I've posted five times on here since March.

Well, believe it or not, I have decided to make a commitment to "Just My Type!"  I have an entire year, yes an ENTIRE YEAR of blog posts lined up for 2012!  All thanks to one of my favorite women of our time, Kathleen Passanisi.

I had the privilege of attending a women's health seminar with my mom this fall, and Kathleen was the keynote speaker and I instantly fell in love!  She is an amazing woman and I encourage all of you to check out her website and her books.  I will be telling you more about Kathleen as the year progresses, but let me just tell you--you are all in for a treat.  She is an amazing woman--did I say that already?

Each week I will be taking one of Kathleen's tips--either from her "Adding Joy to Life" or "Passanisi's Pointers for Purposeful Change" and challenge myself (and sometimes my friends and family) to take some of Kathleen's advice in an effort to improve our lives. 

Look out for my weekly happenings in 2012.  I am very excited to start my new blog-venture.  Until then, head over to Woodn't Ya Know It or The Cheese Thief (two of my favorite blogs).
