I am completely enamored with singer and writer JJ Heller’s beautiful song, “This Year (Happy New Year)” and plan to make the song part of my daily ritual of reminding myself what’s important in life (and what’s not). Her lyrics are so simple, so pure and so freeing. I encourage everyone reading this to check out the song (below) and to really listen to the lyrics. It’s all about forgiving one’s self for whatever’s come before and embracing this moment for all that its worth. If that’s not a recipe for success, I don’t know what is!
No matter what you think, you are perfect in this moment. Yes, you — you specifically!
And yes, perfection can accomplish change — but change is more likely when the want comes from a positive place of loving yourself. When I was able to finally take off over 250 pounds of excess weight, it was because I was loving myself in the “now.” When I hated myself, I just kept getting bigger and unhealthier. When I started looking in the mirror and seeing myself as a friend (and as terrific in the moment), real change started to occur. So next time you look in the mirror, remember that you are a supermodel. (True story!)
