So one of the emails sent to me today from Spark was regarding Happiness. The whole I can be happy when I.....for many of us on this website it is my happiness can happen when I lose or I am a certain weight.
When I was young in very early twenties I had that mindset, as time went on I realized fat or thin, ugly or beautiful on the outside doesn't really matter when it comes to happiness. It is all about the person you are. Sure we all have our bad days and aren't "happy, happy, joy, joy" each and every minute, but we can view things in a positive way more often than not.
Taking time to enjoy your life, not letting others ruin what you do, being resilient, doing small acts of kindness, these are things that can make each day a bit happier. My weight doesn't make who I am, it is just how the world views me and I refuse to be one of those fat people on Dr. Phil saying how I can't have a life because I am fat, that is just a cop out!
