Hi everybody.

The New and Improved Paper Jellyfish

The Paper Jellyfish started out as a fitness and diet blog. That incarnation of PJ has since gone into the light and transitioned into the void.  I killed it. Well, more accurately I let it die. I no longer have any interest in being a diet and fitness blogger. I was doing it for the wrong reasons, and I do not believe there are any right reasons. (For me anyway, if you have a diet and fitness blog go ahead and do your thing)

Why Sara?

I started a diet and fitness blog for the same reason I became a personal trainer. By the way, I also quit my job as a personal trainer. I wanted to be thinner. I wanted to be thinner at all costs. I was ready to center my life on the things that it took to be thinner because that is really the only way to be successful. (at being thinner, and well most other things too)

Screw That.

I do not want to make my entire life about making my body look a certain way. I do not want to put all of my physical and mental energy into a certain body fat percentage. I have other things to do. I have better things to do. I am a creative and interesting human being who is capable of much more than being attractive to whoever it is finds people thinner than me attractive.

So What Now?

Well guys, now the Paper Jellyfish is going to be about the stuff I really care about. It is probably going to be part food blog (I freaking love food and cooking), part self-acceptance blog (I am full on crunchy hippie love child now), and part whatever I want it to be (I am the princess around here).
I appreciate any of you who are hear reading and got this far. I look forward to sharing my passion for all things food, fun and love with you.


P.S. Please feel free to leave your favorite cooking, food, vegetarian, yoga, fan fiction, unicorn and any other blogs that inspire you in the comments. I love inspiration.
