As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve already broken one of my New Year’s resolutions. I resolved to write on this blog every day, not matter how small the entry. That…hasn’t happened. I’ve posted occasionally, but fallen very short of my one-post-a-day goal. Technology is partly to blame. I cannot figure out how to make my WordPress app on my phone work–in a fit of frustration I deleted app and have yet to add it back (clearly “be more patient” was not one of my resolutions). But that isn’t a great excuse, so
I’m fixing it I fixed it and re-resolve to write a little bit every single day.
My other resolution was to love myself more. I was inspired to make this resolution by one of the most fabulous people on the planet, RuPaul. One of my favorite RuPaul quotations is, “If you don’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?”
This is so true. If I don’t love myself–if I’m not happy with who *I* am–how can I love my fiance, my step-kids, or anyone else? If I can’t see the beauty and the goodness in myself, how can I truly see it in others? Short answer: I can’t. So I’m loving myself more this year.
I’m going to start an exercise where I pick out something I love about myself each day. These can be physical traits, personal traits, anything at all that I love about me. Who knows–maybe I’ll post them here each day! Satisfying two resolutions with one blog post. 🙂
