This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Happy New Year!

January, 1, 2012

New YearI hope you all had a bang-up beginning to 2012! The New Year has barely begun, and I have already seen so many ads with statements like, “Look as good as a model in less than a month.” This started me thinking about New Year’s resolutions. I don’t believe they should involve being “as good as” or “better than” anyone else. I’ve decided that the ideal New Year’s resolution is for each of us to be our best…without comparing ourselves to others. As I wrote in The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men, “Every female has something spectacular to offer.” That goes for guys too. So here’s to your best year yet and the best you:)

    You should start a dating website Katherine, matching European and American people… I for one, would be your first client as I love American women! 🙂

    This is SO TRUE, Katherine! Amazing words to live by. The best thing that we can be is the best possible version of ourselves, without trying to emulate others. Admittedly, it IS hard to not want to compare ourselves to everyone else, but nothing is better than people (men AND women) just as they are, without trying to be anything else. Thanks for this reminder in a time when, like you said, everyone is so focused on being “as good as” or “better than” others! Have a wonderful and prosperous New Year, KKC!!
