Mesolutions


This year, I resolve to be kinder to myself.

I resolve to stop bullying myself.
I resolve to stop making fun of myself for every little misstep.
I resolve to stop berating myself when I make mistakes.
I resolve to stop calling myself "stupid", "idiot" and "fat ass".
I resolve to feel like I am good enough.
I resolve to feel like I deserve the good things.
I resolve to not feel responsible for the bad.
I resolve to give myself a mommy mulligan when I need it.
I resolve to feel OK doing something just for me.
I resolve to feel worthy of the life I have.
I resolve to love myself.
No matter what.
I resolve to be OK with the fact that I will probably screw all of these up.


Happy New Year, friends.
I hope the best day of your 2012 is the worst day of your 2013.

  1. I didn't know you were so down on yourself. Stop that now, Sugar, because you rock. And I resolve to never call you Sugar again.

    1. I don't know... probably. You are a very funny, very smart, very real and open person who, from what I can tell so far, has a lot of great qualities!

  2. Happy New Year! I have many similar resolutions- let's keep them together. The biggest one is to stop bullying myself. I have enough people in my life (I am a law student and surrounded by Jack asses) that bully me enough! so team me! is my new motto!

    Keep writing- your blog makes me smile every, single, day. Really it does- some days it was the only thing that made me smile- your coping helped me to come to terms with my own problems and see a doc- so stop bullying yourself and instead give yourself a gold star..or a pedicure :)

    Take Care!

  3. Radical self love for the win! Write down a few spectacular things about yourself and repeat them in a mirror to yourself. OUT LOUD.

    even if it's just "You are super awesome". It will feel great to hear it outloud :)

  4. Good resolutions! I think I'll steal them and make them my own as well! :)

    Here's to seeing the best in ourselves this coming year and overlooking our (occasional) shortcomings.

  5. I know so many women that could really use this post so I'll be "sharing" (why does that word piss me off so much?). I am printing this post and placing it on my kitchen mirror, where most of my self-abuse occurs. Because, I'm good enough, I'm strong enough and doggonnit, people like me.

    I think you should also add, "I will not hurl myself down the stairs anymore". You've been there, done that. m'kay?

I love hearing from you. It reinforces that writing this blog is not just a silly waste of my brain matter. If you leave a douche canoe comment, I will delete it. I am powerful like that.
