It’s that time of the year where most of us are focusing our energies on those unwanted holiday pounds, firming up before bathing suit season, and making better choices for a healthier lifestyle. While there’s nothing wrong with this—in fact I’m doing it myself—I do think that it’s important to keep things, in perspective.
I ran across the following TedEx video in my newsfeed. I can honestly say I don’t ever watch videos that are longer than a couple of minutes, let along a thirteen-minute video, but I couldn’t stop. I encourage you to watch this video and ask yourself what defines you.
I hope you find Lizzie’s story as inspiring as I have.

'Tis the season to be busy, and Miss America 2014 Nina Davuluri is in the midst of a packed schedule of holiday events!
On Tuesday, November 26, the holiday festivities continued as Nina had the honor of flipping the magical switch at the Tree Lighting Celebration at the beautiful New York Palace Hotel. The majestic celebration symbolized the start of the holiday season as the lights transformed the Palace Hotel into a royal event in New York City!
Wednesday, Nina joined Gretchen Carlson, Miss America 1989 and host of The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson. Nina was featured on "The Power Panel," where she discussed a variety of current events and promoted the Miss America Scholarship Program.
Nina celebrated then Thanksgiving on Thursday, as she rode on a patriotic float in the 87th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!
