Happy New Year

January 15, 2014
By Megan Fisher, MHS, CAADC

Happy New Year to all!  Has everyone made his or her resolutions for 2014?  Like many people, I have had trouble keeping my annual resolutions in the past.  I have made many promises to myself that I would improve this or that, from my weight to my career to my finances.  This year, I’d like to take a different approach and I wonder how many others out there might benefit from this perspective.  I resolve to accept and love myself as I am!  My whole life, I have struggled with not quite feeling good enough.  It is fairly common to hear recovering addicts and alcoholics refer to the plight of the ‘egomaniac with an inferiority complex.’  As a Christian, I know that Christ loves me for who I am.  Thus, who am I to think any less of myself than He does?  I will continue to seek God’s will for me and live a life which honors my body, my mind, my soul, and my relationship with Christ.  I will also, however, find ways to celebrate the miracle that I am and whom Christ has determined is worthy of salvation.   If you have any thoughts on this topic or ideas for other discussions, please send me an email at megansmosaic@newleafresources.org.

By the way, as of today I have been smoke-free for 108 days!
