Whether it be your therapist, hairdresser, sister, or best friend, make sure you build that tribe, and surround yourself with people who encourage, inspire, and remind you of how truly fabulous you are.
While I am grateful for the new acquaintances made over 2012, I soon discovered that as soon as Facebook can create friendships it can also end them. Which is why I intend to do a Facebook cull to rid any toxic friends intent on spreading negative energy to ruin my karma!
Plodding away on that treadmill may leave you thinking only of the destination of loosing that stubborn five pounds/that muffin top etc; but you can lose a whole day biking in Epping Forest or the South Downs, or kayaking in Snowdonia and not realise how many calories you've burned through.
I am certainly not cured of my fear of being tied down. But I know now that fantasising about a life that 'could' be means you miss out on the life you have. Head in the clouds is fine but feet on the ground is better.
I don't hate people. I will mourn the loss of this person in my life, regardless of how I've been treated, with dignity and respect, not only for me but for him. It might make it harder, but he is from Mars after all, and it isn't that great there from what I understand.
