i am who i am

December 31, 2011

i love the sequins and the confetti raining from the ceiling.  i love the champagne.  the fun dresses and fluffy headwear.  i love the celebration and the electricity in the air.  friends by your side as the sun sets on last year and those cheesy cardboard horns herald the dawning of a new year.

but more than all of this, i love the opportunity to start fresh.

some may diet or set unrealistic resolutions.  inevitably i won’t be able to get a treadmill at the gym come monday.  and the lean cuisines will be picked over, so i’ll be stuck eating marie callendar’s full-fat alfredo with bacon and lard for the next week…until all the dieters fall off the wagon and shovel frozen alfredo into their face.  i’m not going to be that girl.  and i happen to like my new year’s resolution.  i happen to like it quite a bit.

i, jenny sparklicious dancing queen, hereby declare that at the stroke of midnight tonight (tomorrow?) i will stop caring what other people think of me.  what i wear.  what i eat.  what i read on the elliptical at the gym.  what my college gpa was.  what i do on friday night.  i do what i want, and from here on out, i will not care what other people think of what i want to do.

as my dad would say, “it is what it is.”  and you know what?  that’s exactly what it is.  i am who i am.  i wear what i want.  i eat what i want.  i read us weekly in public.  so what?  who cares?  not me.

if you don’t like it, then you can’t have a champagne cupcake.

may you wake up with confetti in your hair and memories captured for all time on your digital camera.  may you always have a glass of bubbly in your hand (diet coke counts).  and may you always remember the past, anticipate the future, and celebrate the here and now.
