PICTURE IT WELL: be the one who has moxie

Black-crowned Night Heron. © Curt Given/Given Photography 2015This year switch up your resolutions. Instead of setting them based on what you haven't done like getting fit, cutting down on TV, or starting a new hobby, try this. Set them based on what you want to become. I read somewhere that the top three things women want are to be more courageous, to set strong boundaries and to not take stuff so personally. So what do YOU want to become this year?  A woman who takes more risks, knows her limits, or walks away from master button-pushers? This year, be the girl who has moxie! Happy New Year!

It is good to remind each other that it is okay to walk away from major "button pushers." Our lives are much more enjoyable when we surround ourselves with positive, supportive and happy people!
