    I’m finally coming around to this idea… Now is not a time to take stock of all the ways in failing and want to do better next year. Instead I’ve decided my main resolution is to have more fun. I’m often too busy “mothering” in all the ways that I don’t have fun in any way. With this in mind, when my four year old saw me folding socks and said, “look, mom has a sock hand!” I took the opportunity to chase and tickle him with the sock monster ????

    I needed to hear this. I’m embarrassed to admit that I have been thinking a lot about losing weight in the new year, and I know this is rooted in self-loathing and fear. Digging deeper: Why do I want to lose weight? Because after a difficult divorce, I’m afraid no one will love me again. I’m afraid that I need to find a partner who is financially well-off, because I don’t trust my own ability to make enough money to support my children. And on top of that, I don’t trust that there is any potential mate who will see me as beautiful just the way I am. It would be a lot easier if I was really just concerned about my weight.

  3. Beth,
    I’m just getting around to reading this post (645 unread emails in the personal inbox had me like “whoa”), and I had to reach out to thank you for these words. You have really hit the nail on the head here–I was just thinking about the bikini thing yesterday and investigating what it would require for me to be happy as I am at ANY GIVEN MOMENT, not just when I’m in the best shape. It reminds me of some advice our mutual friend gave me which is to constantly ask myself the question, “what am I REALLY up to?”
    Anyway, I thank you for your wisdom and honesty. Love your work. Keep doing you!
    Devon 🙂
