I’m back! So sorry I’ve been missing from my blog writing for so long! The holidays took a lot out of me this year. My husband was sick so the responsibility of doing Christmas largely fell on my shoulders and quite frankly, I didn’t have an ounce of energy to spare for writing.
However, holidays are over, everyone is back to school and work and I can once again focus on doing what I love, posting positivity!
So let’s begin with a hearty “HAPPY NEW YEAR!” I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and are ready for new beginnings. Don’t worry, I’m not going to impress upon you the ridiculous notion of resolutions for the new year. Ridiculous you ask? Yes, ridiculous because rarely does anyone ever keep them. We all start with great intentions but within a couple of weeks, the effort of doing something new like losing weight, working out at the gym, eating better or drinking more water, all fall to the wayside and we are left feeling like a total and utter failure. I say avoid those feelings by avoiding making resolutions.
Why not start the new year with a simple promise of being more kind, more helpful, more loving or more generous towards friends, family, co-workers and even strangers. Often this promise is a little easier to keep and I think more important than trying to change how you look. It’s also important to our planet to spread love and positivity.
If you truly want to be a healthier version of yourself, start with your mental and emotional health. Change your attitude about yourself. Accept, embrace and love who you are because you are amazing. When you start to believe that you are good enough, wanting to live a healthier life will become part of your self-care routine. You’ll make healthier choices simply because you love your body and want to treat it well, not because you feel pressure to change it from a disapproving society.
Whether you choose to make resolutions or not, I hope that the coming year brings you health and happiness because that is what everyone deserves. You deserve a bright future full of wonderful adventures and memory making moments! Start the new year feeling Pretty, Plus and Proud and step forward with pep in your step!
