What was the #1 New Year’s Resolution in 2015? Yep, you guessed it – LOSE WEIGHT!

In 2010 I lost 150 pounds – True Story! I lost 150 pounds that came from the deepest folds of my heart and radiated out into every fiber of my mind, body and spirit. What’s left of that weight sits in an urn on the table in my living room. My son Brandon.

After that weight loss, losing that ‘last 5 pounds’ or making New Year’s Resolutions based on vanity began to seem silly. Would I really be happier five pounds lighter, if my butt was tighter, my belly flatter or my arms more sculpted? Happier – No. More body satisfaction – Probably. Overall quality of life satisfaction – Probably not. Would I feel more love and belonging in my relationships – No. But damn, I would be smokin’ hot! (for the record – there is nothing wrong with these resolutions as long as you are clear on what you get for your efforts)

Grief reshuffles what our resolutions should be & and what’s worth working for.
