Z is for Zest ~ A to Z 2015 Challenge

Z is for Zest...



keen relish; hearty enjoyment; gusto.

It so easy to get dragged down with the stresses of life. Don't allow yourself to fall down the rabbit hole of despair. Find what puts the zest in your step and provides you enjoyment for your life. Whether it be a brisk walk to get you out in nature, socializing with friends and family, curling up with a good book, etc., discover what excites you and engage!

Kudos to one and all for accomplishing the A to Z 2015 Challenge, it's been a blast!
