Well it’s another New Year and a new decade as well. I’m sure we’ve all seen those New Year new me posts. But what about those of us who aren’t really feeling that way. It’s a New Year but I’m still me. And what about those New Year’s resolutions everyone makes… This year I’m gonna lose that last 50 pounds, or this year I’m gonna get into those skinny jeans I’ve had in my closet for years….
That’s great, and I applaud you for wanting to better yourself. But it doesn’t mean I’m less of a person because my goal is not the same as yours. Just because I’m plus sized doesn’t mean I long to be skinny. My goals for the new year are to be healthier, to stop putting myself last, and to be unapologetically me! I plan to love myself so much that you can’t help but love me too! I don’t want to listen to those negative voices that say ,”thank goodness I don’t have all that butt” or at least I’m “normal sized” I just go and buy something. I’m sure those people mean well, or at least I hope they do… but those words hurt. And I vow not to let them get to me and to help you shake them off too! So wear that rainbow, crop top, mini skirt or whatever makes you happy cause I know I will!!!
Happy New Year friends!!!
