This Halloween we had a Fancy Dress party and invited all our family round to our house. 20 adults and 10 kids; We had a blast!
We hired a selfie mirror, had Halloween themed food and a fireworks display!
Our family dressed up as the Day of the Dead Mexican Family. It was great fun! 🙂
This is me with my face painted! Usually I smile in photos, but I really got into character and kept a serious face on for all my photos.
It is great fun dressing up, putting on masks and facepaint and pretending to be someone different for the day for Halloween but it got me thinking about how many people are not being themselves everyday and putting on a mask.
Being overweight and uncomfortable with your size can dominate your life; every thought, what you wear, where you go, what you do, how you feel…
It is insane how much it can take over your life and make you feel like you are not being yourself, and not living the life you really want to live.
We only have one life, so it is really important that we don’t let it pass us by, while we are wishing to be more happier and healthier in our own skin.
Some people say; “Just be happy the way you are” and while I agree with this to some extent, I don’t agree that we should make being unhealthy OK.
It is important to be happy on your journey to a new you, happiness won’t be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, happiness is something you create everyday as you move closer to your goal, and build in the healthy habits and mindsets that are the foundation of a healthy happy you!
There are 2 months left in 2016.
If you feel like you have been spending this year not being yourself, not doing the things you want to do, not wearing the clothes you want to wear, not feeling as good about yourself as you want to, then I challenge you to take off your mask after Halloween, and start to make the changes that will help you to turn this around so that you can feel how you want to feel about yourself, your health, and your opportunities in life.
Wouldn’t it be great to end 2016 feeling free to be yourself in 2017.
What would change for you in 2017 if you felt happier and healthier?
On the 1st January if you could be wearing clothes 2 sizes smaller, if you could feel healthier, feel in control and empowered, feel confident and happy. What would you love to happen in 2017 for you? What would you be free to do?
I seen this post on Facebook this morning from Marilyn Monroe’s page – the quote reads “Be free to be you”
If your weight is holding you back from being yourself and living the life you truly want and deserve, then make a commitment for the next 2 months of 2016 to give yourself the best Christmas present of all – the gift of being free to be you in 2017.
