It’s January 2nd and I’ve already seen streams of reference to dieting in my facebook feed, I’ve already seen commercials selling ‘quick fix’s’ for your self esteem. There are already stacks of magazines covered with messages about who lost or gained weight in celebrity land and how its time to shape up for your summer swimwear.
But you know what – you are beautiful just as you.
Sure I love fashion, and jewellery, and nail polish and buy cosmetics and straighten my hair…. And my blog will probably get filled with that stuff… Maybe that makes me a hypocrite.
But as Woody Allen said “When we lose twenty pounds…we may be losing the best twenty pounds we have! We may be losing the pounds that contain our genius, our humanity, our love and honesty.”
Life is for enjoying – so as long as you are healthy and as long as you happy then it doesn’t matter. Sure, express yourself with fashion, and make the most of what you have with a little make up – but don’t compromise your health with an extreme diet.
Happy New Year everyone
