A New Resolve

It's a new year and every year we make resolutions. Every year we give up on said resolutions.

This year I am not making an resolutions.

That's right. Instead of making resolutions, I am instead resolving myself to live a better life. I am mustering up all the resolve I have to be healthy.

I have decided that weight loss goals and calorie intake goals are all fine and dandy, except that thus far they have not helped in me in the long term. My goal in life is to become a healthy person. To me this means that I want to become a person whom I love. I want to be happy. I want to find a way to not be stressed out all the time, to let things roll of my back and to look for the good in everything.

I want to do things to take care of myself and cherish myself like getting enough sleep, meditating, reading, getting massages, being active mentally and physically. I want to put quality fuel into my body and quit feeding it poison and crap. This is what healthy means to me.

For the first time in my life, I don't want to be a stick figure. Yes, I want to lose some weight so that I am able to do more things, and so that I can hopefully have children some day, but I no longer feel that I have to be thin to love myself or so that someone else can love me. Alex loves me the way I am, why can't I?

I want to embrace my body, glorify my body, love and cherish my body as my temple, and to do things only to make it better and happier.

So, this year, only quality things go in my body and mind.
