So I spent this morning relaxing with a cup of coffee:


So yummy.

And I also was catching up on reading some magazines. I was reading the Glamour issue from back in December (I know, I am realllly behind), and there was an article where Jane Fonda was interviewing Jennifer Lopez.

I really loved this quote..but then when reading the article I came across this:

“JF: What have you learned from all of your past relationships that prepares you better for a new relationship?

JL: I think that I’ve finally learned the biggest lesson of all.

JF: What is it?

JL: You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be OK on your own before you can be OK with somebody else. You’ve got to value yourself and know that you’re worth everything.

JF: And not settle for less.

JL: And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can’t really have a healthy relationship.

JF: I agree. We talk about falling in love. What’s wrong with that sentence? Falling. When you love yourself, you don’t fall. You stand on two feet.

So true! Sometimes we have to take the time to find ourselves and fall in love before we are ready to find someone else to fall in love with! Here is the full article if you want to read.

Hope you all have a beautiful day!

Race to the finish…

So I was doing my normal Thursday morning blog surfing, and I was leaving a comment…which lead me to a revelation…

…this problem doesn’t happen only with books.

At first I thought I was just being silly, then I realized that this happens all the time!  Reading, cooking, eating mindfully, exercising, in my love life…


…so now to brainstorm ways to follow through.

Two helpful tools just came in the mail from my Amazon cart:


These two things can help me out on some things…but what about others?

I need to think more about the bigger picture. Why am I not following through? How can I change my mind set?

…to be continued…

What do you do to stay focused? How do you follow through?

So I have been doing a lot of thinking over the past week…

I was thinking back over the past few years after graduating college. I was thinking about how different of a person that I have become, and then person I still want to be.

I have had some major life changes—and a lot of minor ones.

I graduated college, and then graduated again.

I found my passion and my talent, and a way to blend the two in a form of a job.

I have dated some guys who made me realize how strong I am, and some that have taught me to be vulnerable.

I have found that some friends grow up with you, and that some grow apart.

I have learned some of the best times for getting to know people are over coffee—or beer.

I have learned that the best way to learn about forgiveness is through the eyes of a shelter animal.

I have learned not to hate my thighs for not being as thin as I want—but to love how strong they are. They did carry my 13.1 miles, after all.

I have learned that the community of healthy living bloggers are inspiring, beautiful and strong.

I have learned that I am my Father’s daughter, over and over again.

I have learned where I want to go in this life, and who I want to take with me on the journey.

So please—join me! I am transforming the blog to “Seeking Amy”, documenting my journey of finding happiness and balance…


…of growing up…


…of finding
