Congratulations on making such positive changes in your life. It's a tough road to change the way we eat, exercise and cook. I'm with you on the weight--also lost 20 this year and minding the scale so it stays off. Wishing is one thing, doing is really the only way such changes can happen. Have a very merry Christmas and New Years, and here's to another 20 pounds disappearing in the coming year!


Great job!! I need to follow your lead on the weight and life changes. I faithfully read your blog and love it!!! I have a friend in Novato, so sometimes hit the Thrifts that you speak of.
Merry Christmas to you and Family!!!!


Merry Christmas to You and Your Family. What a positive year of change you experienced. I am looking forward to reading your posts in the new year. Your posts this year were very helpful, motivating and a pleasure to read.


I've always enjoyed your personal, reflective style posts; and especially enjoying this year-in-review! Your house manifest was AWESOME, to be sure, (and a lot of applying yourself, thriftily)! Congratulations! The nutritional and health path you've shared continued to modify and then transform YOU, as well! More Congratulations! For me, the best news was "the new friendships" that "got you through the year". Experts list "The Most Stressful Things" in Life to include moving & the death of a loved one. That you've thrived through these experiences warms my heart. Happy Christmas, Selena! (& Dave, Cerys, Keiran and your Dad, too!)

COngratulation on changing your diet and losing 20 lbs which is indeed quite a lot for someone petite. I'm an inch shorter and very small boned, five pounds cause my clothes to fit too tightly, ten and I'm up nearly two sizes, so I do understand. Life *is* magical, and spirit is love that keeps growing and spreading. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement, your lovely blog. I hope you and yours have a lovely holiday season in your new home. XXX


Thank you for sharing your reflection and personal insights, Selena, which you do so well. You always inspire and give us a lot to think about. You are much appreciated.

Girl, your 40s can be fabulous so do not fear them. But keep those good eating habits up as you move into your 50s as you'll need to question every food choice you make a little more thoughtfully. Plus, keep exercising. We have the power within us to make choices that affect our lives in positive ways as you have demonstrated. It's an amazing journey!

Merry Christmas!

Thank-you for another thoughtful post. I've been a follower for a long time and you've inspired me to start a blog of my own. You still stand out amongst a sea of other blogs. Well written and thoughtful and stylish. I wish you all the very best for you and your family for 2013. Please keep posting and inspiring the many people that read your blog.
I hope next year brings your business to new exciting levels. You deserve it.

Kind regards.


We share a birthday! Cheers to a wonderful 2013!

This idea ties in with what has been called the imaginal realm, a sort of twilight zone midway between physical and spiritual reality. A certain tolerance for ambiguity is, I think, necessary in carrying out these highly subjective experiments.

It's easier to tell the difference between two flashlights that are 6 lumens apart when one is just 2 lumens bright than it is to tell them apart when one is 200 lumens.

The more stimulus you're getting (light, sound, pressure, delight, sadness) the less easily you can notice a small change. That seems obvious, but it's worth saying.


Great post- very inspiring. I hope to follow your lead and change my diet and drop some weight this year. Thanks for sharing this:)

I thoroughly enjoy your blog.

I can't figure out who the designer is. I really like the shirt, but I can't find it anywhere.

As a Landscape Architect I often encounter clients who have gotten advice from real estate agents or others with equally questionable training and experience in what will make a place more desirable.

If recycling were really efficient and cost saving then some one would make money at doing this and it wouldn't have to be forced down our throats. Many municipalities have had to shut their recycling plants down due to cost over runs.


you are covering your ass, and i'm sure it will nicely cover hers. i can only imagine how wonderfully cosy this must feel.

You don’t have to use fancy and overly creative fonts. In fact, it is recommended to use standard fonts such as Trial or Times New Roman. These will help ensure your contact details are printed legibly on the card


You know, it is pretty awesome to have followed your blog for a couple of years and to see where your life has taken you. You've had all kinds of ups and downs, but also so much growth in the direction of the dreams you share here. It's very inspiring, especially because you are so down to earth. Thanks for sharing! I'm wishing you and your family a very happy New Year.

How do I compare the image that was created to the text field. Do I pass something in a hidden field? Is there an example of how this Add Comment code does the comparison? Thanks!

It is fundamental issues that are often allowed to cloud certain matters, which in turn can drain confidence from individuals, but most people who commit to personal development training find that they become more able to see past awkward obstacles,

Great stuff here. The information and the detail were just perfect. I think that your perspective is deep, its just well thought out and really fantastic to see someone who knows how to put these thoughts down so well. Great job on this.
