Sooo, my new year started out with a little bit of a kick to the gut. Remember how I was telling you a week or so ago that I’m the editor and head fashion woman at a wedding blog? Well I just found out yesterday that the blog is shutting down in two weeks, leaving me without a job.


I allowed myself a couple of hours of self pity (and a tear or two), ate a huge brownie and indulged in some horribly wonderful reality TV (have you ever seen Celebrity Wife Swap?!).

But today is a new day and I’m determined to tackle it with positivity. I just need a wee bit of help. Of course, I turned to Pinterest (click the link for sources!)…

I hope the New Year has been kinder to you than it has to me so far. And if not, I hope at least some of these inspirational words have resonated with you enough to force you out of your pity pool and toward action!

I for one am going to get to work on my 2012 to-do list!
