Happy New Year’s Eve!
On this eve of 2011, we look back and appreciate all that 2011 has given us, mourn what 2011 has taken from us, and look forward to the blessings that 2012 will bestow.
This year, let’s make a promise, to ourselves. Not necessarily a resolution (super New Year’s Day Resolutions post tomorrow!) but more like a vow, a promise, to ourselves.
This year, let’s
treat ourselves gently, with respect and full appreciation.
celebrate our individual beauty.
share our love for others, freely and openly.
ban fat talk, and hate for our bodies, ourselves from conversation.
ignore messages that we are not worthy, that we can always be thinner,
grab what we deserve, with strength and valor,
love, not hate, and, of course,
eat. Let’s eat. And enjoy every bite of 2012.
Happy New Year’s Eve everyone.
