Resolving to be Happy
Wednesday, January 02, 2013
I could be ashamed to get back on this site. I could be upset that I fell off track yet again & let my clothes get tight. I could beat myself up & give myself hell, get on a ridiculously strict new fad diet & start the yo-yo cycle all over again. But guess what? That’s not how I roll.
I didn’t resolve to lose weight this New Year. I resolved to treat myself better. I resolved to be kinder, more patient, & more understanding of the fact that I am a human being and just as deserving of love & respect as anyone else. Instead of focusing on the negatives, which won’t get me anywhere, I’m just going to get right back on the horse & keep moving forward.
So I don’t know exactly what I want to do with the rest of my life. So what? A lot of people don’t figure that part out until way later in the game, but I know eating the same old comfort food & cocktails while avoiding the gym won’t get me any closer to a happy fulfilling life, but you know what? Neither will being able to fit in a size 6 pair of jeans. I’m in charge of my life. I’m responsible for my own happiness & success & it’s time to get back up, brush myself off again, & keep fighting for me. I’m sure it won’t be the last time I have to do it, but one thing I know is that I won’t be the thing standing in my own way. I’ve got to keep trying & that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
Happy New Year, everyone. Remember that you are not your weight. You are that light inside of you that makes you smile & even though sometimes you have to fight to keep it glowing, it’s always worth the battle because you are beautiful & worth taking care of.
