Doing Things a Bit Differently This Year

For those of you who have been around, you know I love a fresh start. Whether it’s after a stomach flu or a Monday being on the first of the month, I embrace the chance for a new beginning to make a change. This year started as the mother of all fresh start years with New Year’s Day on a Monday.

Well, what would have been an incredible new beginning for me was not. Let’s just say bidding farewell to 2017 skidded into my clean slate of 2018 and I spent January 1st eating potato chips on the couch.

Me at 2:15 a.m. still out watching my favorite band…

I spent a day or two fretting my missed opportunity and then it hit me. Why not celebrate it?? I screwed up my chance to be perfect. GOOD. Leading with this new idea, I’ve been pretty much doing what I feel like for the past 10 days. This happens to include a daily few spoonful’s of Ben and Jerry’s. Why not?

My favorite flavor – right out of the carton.

I’m still exercising but not because I want to get thinner, because it makes me feel good.

I’m still saying FUCK because I FUCKING love saying FUCK.

I haven’t been super productive because, well, I don’t want to.

I’m drinking wine when I feel like it.

This year, I’m not going to be nicer, thinner, smarter or more efficient. I’m cutting myself some slack and so far I’m really enjoying it. My resolution is to embrace the little things in life that make me the happiest.

Like Ben and Jerry’s…

Who’s with me??

    Oh Krissy! I figured this out years ago! I may look like an overweight poop emoji but am I happy? Fuck yes!
