Be grateful.

Happy New Year, normal people!

Are you looking back on what you ate or drank or how little you worked out during the holidays?

Stop that.

Every single time you start to get sucked into that black hole of regret get hold of yourself. Thump yourself on the forehead, snap a rubber band on your wrist…do something to remind yourself to be grateful for that leg of lamb, that time with Gramma Jo, that beautifully crafted beer, those things you only eat or drink once a year (e.g. aunt betty’s fruit cake, uncle bob’s extra noggy eggnog.)

Unless you’re being courted by a mysterious mogul or monarch you’re not getting presents ever day, right? That’s “the holidays” or pretty much any special occasion throughout the year.  Food presents. Enjoy. Be grateful.
