A Modern Girl's Manifesta


Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.
(Mary Anne Radmacher)

As I reflect on 2009, I am struck by the progress I made without moving an inch. I had the same job, apartment and boyfriend. After years of moving around and completing an endless series of firsts, it was a refreshing change to stay in one place.

Part of me was scared that I wouldn't grow without any significant life changes. Instead, I found that stability affords new opportunities. It feels like I've just scratched the surface and I'm looking forward to finding out what exciting things this new year will bring.

I created this “Modern Girl’s Manifesta” as a reminder to make every day an extraordinary adventure. I hope it inspires you to sparkle. Feel free to pass it along. Happy 2010!
