I was at a great event last week, called “Create your Dream Year in 2014” hosted by motivational speakers Patricia Moreno and Terri Cole. All female speakers shared their personal journey, some of the struggles they’ve dealt with are; alcohol and drug addictions, broken marriage, low self esteem and fear of ending up alone. It was touching to hear their stories, very brave to open up to all these strangers in a room, and very powerful to hear how they changed their life. Even though their life experiences were all different, they all changed it the same way. How? By changing their thoughts!
By shifting their perception from “not feeling worthy” and “not having enough” to “I AM worthy” and “I have everything I need”. Putting fear aside and filling the space up with love. Your thoughts create feelings and those feelings create actions that ultimately determine your reality. If you want to live a happy life, it’s important to have happy thoughts. Replace your negative thoughts with positive ones, even if you don’t fully believe it yet; fake it until you make it
This might not be a new concept to you but it’s always good to be reminded again. I left the event inspired and excited about the new year. What do you want to manifest in 2014?
When I woke up saturday morning it was snowing!! It was magical and I couldn’t wait to go outside. A perfect day to go ice-skating in Bryant Park with a bunch of awesome friends. I hadn’t been ice skating in about seven years, but quickly got the hang of it again. Boy we had so much fun chasing each other, skating backwards and dancing on ice :) Isn’t it the best feeling to come back home after a fun day out in the cold; tired and hungry. And all you want to eat is comfort food… oh yeah! This Shepherd Pie recipe is a real treat, I made it twice now and the original recipe says it’s eight servings but I can tell you that both times the four of us cleaned out the oven dish
I found this recipe on food network and thought it was close to perfect. I couldn’t resist making it healthier; I added some extra veggies, replaced heavy whip with whole milk and used a little less meat.
Serves 4 hungry adults

If you have any great winter recipes you’d like to share with me, please do! I would love to know what you eat this season!
Lots of love,
