Happy New Year!

It's almost a new year and we all know what resolution is on everyone's mind. Resist it. Overcome it. Make a resolution to be healthier. To eat better and to exercise.. but stay away from the idea of losing weight. Maybe you'll lose some by eating healthfully and exercising- maybe you won't. Probably not actually. Don't let that be your goal. Let yourself focus on loving your body and keeping it healthy- because what it does for you is amazing. It gets you through each and every day and you should treat it as well as you possibly can. In fact, make a resolution to throw out your scale. Who cares what the number says as long as you feel fantastic? We all know how little that number actually means. If you know it, don't be ashamed of it. If you don't know it, well it's no big deal. It's not a badge or honor or of shame any more than the length of your hair (which is a hell of a lot easier to change by the way).

Make a resolution to love your body, no matter what. To dismiss the abuse of others as ignorance, intolerance, and hate and know that you are far too worthy for such juvenile bullying. Make a resolution to realize the power of how amazing you are and to look at every other person you see as a unique and beautiful individual. Stop counting calories, and stop saying "I can't do, say, think, or eat this because....". Make this the year that you finally stand up for yourself. Happy New Year everyone! May it be fantastic!
