So in June of 2009 I was in need of extra income. I had my sister visiting at the time and the idea came up of making a calendar to sell online. We had a camera, and I knew there were websites where you could purchase things like that as gifts so we said -- let's do it! I wanted it to be inspirational for other fatties, too, so I started to think up catch phrases that I use and rules I try to adhere to (even if I think I can't some days) to include with each month. Since 2010 is quickly coming to a close, I started thinking back to the calendar and wanted to see how I did with them. And share them with anyone who reads!
PS: Thank you to my palmful of sweet cheeks (who I hope are reading!) who did buy <3 You helped a lot.
January: It’s not about being typical or unique, but authentic.
February: Don’t ever get discouraged.
March: Sensuality exists at every size.
April: There’s nothing wrong with being the most fabulous person in the room.
May: Let go of investing in strangers’ opinions!
June: Find ways to celebrate being yourself every day.
July: Love yourself from all angles.
August: Give and accept compliments genuinely and graciously.
September: Embody the confidence you admire.
October: Build yourself from the ground up if you have to.
November: Reclaim the word fat.
December: Always leave something to be desired
My hardest challenge has been May, though I have made a great strides towards it. I also have been more recently working on July. And as always, I have February, September and November in the forefront of my mind.
