Eat What You're Craving: A Lesson in Choosing Happiness

With Christmas come and gone it tis the season to start seeing peoples' New Year's resolutions posted here, there, and everywhere, one of the most popular being giving up all things sugary and fatty and hitting the gym.

Those who have followed me for quite awhile know that I'm not a big fan of making resolutions when the new year looms near; I feel if you're going to set a goal for yourself why not do it ANY day of the year instead of waiting until the end of the year for a 'new start.'

That being said however, I'm on a reading kick lately and I recently read something in a young adult book called Through the Zombie Glass by Gena Showalter (second book in the series) that made me really stop and think. The characters were at Thanksgiving dinner with all sorts of traditional Thanksgiving foods spread about. Along with a single bowl of spaghetti.

"You did all of this?" I asked.
"Everything but the spaghetti." 
"Which you have because...."
"Of my rules. I only eat what I'm craving and I was craving my dad's spaghetti."

You know that feeling when you start falling in love? Everybody who has been in love knows that I'm talking about; Just the mere mention of them brings a big smile to your face that ultimately hurts your cheeks. The anticipation of seeing them face to face simultaneously gives you unstoppable butterflies and makes your heart race. They're the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning and the last thing on your mind when you go to bed.

Yeah, you know what I'm talking about.

While falling in love with a person is romantic and grand, in this particular context I'm actually not referring to a person at all...

This is exactly how I feel about travel. Just the mere mention of traveling fills me with so much emotion it's hard to keep it contained; I'm continuously falling in love with the world and all it's endless possibilities.

Hence my obvious transition to a travel website! Of course with limited funds and health issues I can't just go full force into things like my heart, mind, and soul would like me to, especially with building my website back up and making a name for myself as a travel blogger.
