Last night I started reading May Cause Miracles by spirit junkie Gabrielle Bernstein. If you have not heard of  Gabrielle I can wholeheartedly promise you that you're missing out. Gabriel is a firm believer that simple, consistent shifts in ones thinking and actions can lead to the miraculous in all aspects of our daily lives (relationships, work, finances, bodies, and self-image). Gabrielle offers a 40 day challenge intended to help you release fear, allow gratitude and love and ultimately live a life of abundance, acceptance, appreciation or happiness. 

Now your probably wondering why I am sharing this with you? A post on Daily Crush beyond perfectly photographed family rooms and fashion roundups...I know what you're thinking. You may recall one of my goals for 2012 was to be more real on this blog and I have failed miserably. I never want it to be journal chronicling my personal day to day life but I could share a little more about me, a little personality, some sort of thoughts and opinions as Sally + Molly have mastered in their weekly "Toast Talk" Series. I think this 40 day "challenge" is a great place to start in terms of opening up a bit. Knowing me, I likely wont post daily but I plan on sharing some highlights every few days of topics, affirmations, advice I think you may enjoy, because lets be honest in this crazy world we live in contentment, happiness, and inner peace – whatever you want to call – can be hard to achieve.
