Happy Holidays

For the past week and a half I've been needlessly working myself up over the quickly approaching holiday season. Thanksgiving is probably my least favorite day of the year. My family has our big Thanksgiving feast at lunchtime, so the eating can continue throughout the entire day. A self induced food coma is expected out of everyone on this big day. I hate it. 

I stumbled across this, this morning and feel in love with it...

Happy Holidays
what if...
Hunger means you eat when physically hungry instead of emotionally hungry.
Attitudes about your size has to with the size of your heart instead of the size of your body.
Parents accept and value you for who you are, not according to how you look.
Problems are resolved in ways other than stuffing or restricting your feelings with food.
You spend as much time and energy on helping others, as you do on how you look.
Happiness comes from within rather than from expectations of others.
Occasions for the holidays emphasize relating to others instead of emphasizing food.
Love of self means you deserve to treat yourself in the best humanly possible way.
Identity of self involves more than how you look.
Disapproval of self is changed to approval of who you are.
Acceptance of what one can not change includes your body features.
You treat yourself as you treat your best friend.
Society values you for being you without emphasis to your weight or size.

What a perfect way to start my day. We are 48 hours from the big feast- I better start pumping myself up now.
