Day two into the New Year. It's been quite a day.

My car, my beloved car, is having transmission problems and will be traded in for a new/newer car in the next few days. It saddens me. Yes, getting a new car is exciting, but this car has some meaning for me.

This was my first, brand new car. But I loved it for another reason. In 2002 I had a terrible car accident. Besides the physical injuries, my spirit was hurt. I was terrified of driving and swore I would never do it again. Facing your worst fear and immortality will do that to you. It's terrifying and shook me to my core.

But I lived in Los Angeles. How could I not drive. After weeks of being driven around by friends and relatives, I finally realized that I had to face my fear. And I got behind the wheel of my first new car. The car isn't anything fancy, but I felt safe, so that made it priceless to me. I pictured myself driving that thing for 20 years, never once being ashamed of how old it was. But, it wasn't meant to be.

I said this would be a year of changes and two days in, it's true. I'll update on what car I end up purchasing.

For now, some inspiration...

Happy 2015!!!!

Here it is, the beginning of a NEW YEAR! I think this is an exciting day. You get to start over and set new goals to better your life. Have you written your New Year's Resolutions?

I spent the last week of the year analyzing this past year. It was a tough year, but also a year filled with many blessings. I'm grateful for all of the wonderful people that are a part of my life. They made a difference in my life, and for that, I am thankful.

As this new year begins, I am setting a lot of goals, just like everyone else. But I don't just want to make a list of goals that I'll forget about. I want to change my life.

That's quite the statement, right?

While I love my life, I want to be more present in living it. I want to seize everyday and do the things I love. I want to influence the life of others, I want to make a difference. I want to be a better person and I want to become a better version of myself.

How am I to accomplish all of this?

I'm breaking down my life, day by day. I'm making small changes that will help me become the best version of me. Some things may seem like small changes, but when all the changes are added together, it will change my life.

I'll be posting everyday, both here and on Instagram. I'll post the things, quotes and people who inspire me. I'll post challenges and update you on the things that work out, and those that don't.

I hope you'll join me on this journey. A 365 day journey. What will you name your  journey?

For now, let's name my journey...A Life that Sparkles.

I hope you enjoy the new layout.  There are more changes coming in the following weeks.
