Comedic Relief Or New Years Resolution..

A new year and new you.. Or so I overheard of two women sitting on the beach. It deserves a ponder of magnitude proportions! Watching the crowds pile onto the beach and line up like sardines in order to spend the last of the holiday season in the sun before heading back to reality, was fodder for thought.
Hmmm, what is it about the first of the year that people feel compelled to begin again, change their bodies, turn over new lies, I mean leaf(s)? You and I know that new years resolutions are just denials and fantasies we throw out into the atmosphere in order to find comedic relief right? Yes! I’m right and my butt and the extra pounds I proudly carry will be happy to confirm, conform and happily provide a laugh or twelve. Ahhh the sight of changes in the body which you said you’d never have. That awful relative you said you’d never be like. That thing/behavior you said you’d never ever do. Comedic relief I tell you. Laugh, go on, right now, laugh because you know you want to. We are all the most beautiful imperfections that ever lived. Inside and out we hold the power to change. Once a year we collectively decide that we are going to morph into something that could be, even if it doesn’t want to be…
I’m so psyched about the possibilities right now I had to write this! Oh yeah baby! I think I’ll decide to become a super model or perhaps an actress on the big screen. Sell chocolate on the beach so it melts in my hand and I get to eat it instead. Shave my head and sell my service of sun reflection to beach goers for a quicker tan. Maybe I will just change clothes and comb my hair every morning and see what happens, hmmm. Oh the possibilities abound and my head hurts and now I need comedic relief I tell ya! Where’s that mirror darn-it!
Tomorrow I think I’ll make a list and then burn it and scatter the ashes into the universe and see what comes back. I’m thinking maybe an ashy tan or grey hair or a mouth full of what-the-heck-was-I-thinking? I do want to go on record as saying change can happen any day you decide and it doesn’t have to be New Years.
Now anyone who knows me, knows I’m just playing the devils advocate here but sometimes it can be the best excuse ever to wake up a crowd and PEOPLE it is time to wake up! It is January 1st after all. Change is healthy, good, exciting and accessible anytime but only if it is reachable, comfortable, challenging and YOU. My new year and new me will just have to co-exist with each other and whoever wins is my hero. Go Team Reality!
