Sometimes we all need a refresher course in life. I thought it might be fun to revisit some of Angie's older posts as part of that refresher. I picked this post:

I picked it because women as a group are indeed bombarded with unrealistic images of "how we are supposed to act and be." No matter how much we try to avoid it, it creeps into out psyches and affects our judgement. I try to be conscious of this and remind myself of life's reality in comparison to Madison Avenue's fantasy. I may not always be successful, but I do try.

The part about loving and respecting our bodies is especially poignant to me. Too frequently we forget to respect our bodies and all that it does for us. To care for and respect my body this Holiday Season I am consciously doing two things: (1) I am making time for a 30 minute work out, and (2) I am attending Holiday Parties with a plan to avoid overindulgences.

I hope I did justice to Angie's original post.
