The days before Christmas are filled with cookies and candies and pecan pies….
Of course, I indulged in all of the above.
What the heck is wrong with me?
I have read the books: Only eat when you are hungry.
How can I possibly be hungry 24 hours a day?
And then, after all the goodies,……
Ding ding ding!
A loaded Italian?
I got a sandwich again.
I hate false advertising.
Ok, so if I have my ducks in a row, a glass of red wine is equal to an hour at the gym.
2 glasses later, I am home and fit as a fiddle.
Oh woe is me, and hungry as a bear.
You know what?
When you get to be ancient, why not indulge?
I mean, what the hell?
One of these days, it will be curtains for me.
She never did eat anything that would be “bad” for her.
I am going on a binge starting tomorrow.
Ooops. I think I started today.
And guess what?
When I am gone, I can’t eat a chocolate bonbon.
I can’t sip a glass of red wine.
I can’t enjoy a night of frivolity.
So, I resolve, right now, on this day, December 20, 2016, to live it up, enjoy every person I meet, laugh until it hurts and just be silly.
Life is, after all, a journey.
And it is meant to be enjoyed.
