What is your emotional weight? Forget the actual scale, and those actual pounds everybody else is telling you to lose in the New Year. I am asking you to step on your own Happiness Scale. If you had to call out a number for the emotional weight of your break-up that you have been lugging around, what number would it be? Fifty extra “pounds” or so?
Oh my. No wonder you were so hard on yourself last year.
It’s time to start dropping some “LB’s.” And by “LB’s,” I mean “Lies ’bout yourSelf.”
Lies that state you were the reason your marriage ended with an infidelity. Lies that state it was those forehead wrinkles or those brown spots that suddenly appeared on the back of your hands a few years ago. These “LB’s” are the ones really weighing you down.
With all this talk of resolutions, and denying ourselves things in the New Year for our betterment, how about we stop the self-blame and drop all of those emotional pounds? They are weighing us down in ways actual pounds never will. It seems like a lot, I know, to have to actually start a new year by coming to terms with the pounds of emotional heartache. The theory goes that if we do unload ourselves of the self blame and start to embrace the new Everything, we will feel lighter than we ever have. In our heart of hearts. In our minds and in our bodies.
Jog off the blame. Sweat out the flaw-finding, and waist-pinching, and for gosh sakes, get rid of those magnifying mirrors! What are you thinking ladies?
It’s a New Year. Let’s decide it’s the Year We Don’t Fear.
Let’s just lighten our loads and let ourselves be free of self judgement. Free of the fear of risk. Free of the sadness and anger. Shed the pounds of blame. Set a new goal on your Happiness Scale and put away the actual one. Shoot for your goals and dreams and focus on blessings and good times.
Things are getting lighter already!
