Did you see Eat, Pray, Love? Did you read the book? I did. I loved the book (even if I thought the author was a leetle bit selfish). I loved the movie (mostly because of all the eye-candy: Julia Roberts, Javier Bardem, Italy, food.). In one part of the saga, Liz is asked for her “word”. What’s your word? Can you possibly sum up yourself in one word? I’m not sure I can; but I can decide a word for this year for myself. One word that describes who you want to be, what you want to do, your resolution, who you want to become.
Want to know what my word is for 2011?
Sounds harsh, I know. But it’s not. It’s a good DONE. I’m trying really hard to work on feeling good enough. Feeling happy with myself JUST.THE.WAY.I.AM.
DONE with looking in the mirror and pointing out flaws to myself.
DONE with starting every day thinking how bad I look.
DONE with obsessing about my weight, my body, the food I eat, the exercise I do.
DONE caring what others think.
DONE doing things because I think I should instead of doing them because I want to.
DONE trying to please everyone.
DONE being “friends” with people I shouldn’t be around.
DONE feeling like I have to be super busy 24/7.
DONE with the white noise in my life. It’s ok for it to be quiet. It’s good.
DONE with trying to be perfect, better, something I’m not.
What do you think? Oh, wait, I don’t care! 😉
What’s your word?
