Dora Nola Tributes, Meryl Streep
"Don’t waste so much time thinking about how much you weigh. There is no more mind-numbing, boring, idiotic, self-destructive diversion from the fun of living."
Yet... Is it just me or is there a lot of talk about losing weight in January? It's that time of the year, where we are made to feel guilty and shameful about our joyful holiday excesses and the weight that comes with it. Better start working off those extra holiday pounds! New Year, new you! I unfortunately am not 100% capable of not giving in to the societal pressure of looking a certain way, and some days are harder than others. God knows I'm trying to change my perception and my relationship with my body for one of acceptance, permission, grace, and respect. I have to remind myself constantly that my happiness comes from living a full, honest, authentic and meaningful life, not from seeing a certain number on the scale. That's why I found this quote was so pertinent right now... I love that in very few words, Meryl brings us back to the essence of it all- the FUN of living!
And by now, you know I love a quote that is straight to the point, no BS!
Thanks Meryl, you are an inspiration to us all.
