I’m not much of one for the new year//resolution thing. I won’t hate on myself with disordered eating and damaging exercise regimes to attempt to conform to what is supposed to be the ‘right’ sort of body. My body is healthy and fine and does what I need it to do much better near to ‘fat’ than it did when I had a supposedly ideal body. I won’t change who I am when I like who I am, nor make promises of improvement because of a specific day. Self-improvement is a life-long commitment path I put myself on as a child, and making silly promises seems sort of a trivial insult to that commitment. That’s just my take on it though — I do appreciate some people actually make use of the concept of the new year to make some significant improvements in their lives.
For me though, it’s just another day that I commit myself to trying to get by. I commit myself again to trying to be a better person, and to consider kindness where I can. I will continue to teach myself new things as opportunities present itself. In short… I will continue to be the me that I am instead of the me I am not, and we together will continue to grow and love and enjoy our existence the best we can in spite of the bipolar trying to make with the stealth-murderin’.
Hope everyone is having a good day whatever your take on today is.
