Growing up, the New Year celebrations were about meeting family and friends👨👩👧👦, eating🍽️, parlour games🃏, and story telling📖. But it wasn’t always like that. There was a period in my youth where Christmas and New Year stressed me out.
I was worried about
😱 “letting go” so much I’d get fat
🤬 going crazy with my eating
Essentially, I was being my harshest critic.
Over the years, I learned that
🛤️ it’s about progression and NOT perfection
🍱 a few meals will not ruin months of progress
📸 memories with my loved ones are more important than weight
🥳 there’s no shame or guilt in enjoying food and time
❤️ I had to be kind to myself
With those thoughts in mind, welcoming New Years became more relaxed for me.
