Plus Size Militia.

by Jamila Pierre

Welcome to the first post of the year 2014!


New Year's Eve, and all days from two weeks prior leading up to the day most people look forward to, are filled with contemplations, reflections, and social media time-lines that may very well drive a person mad (due to the repetition).

Everyone and their mother wants to express their desire to change for the better in the new year and declare it as "Their Year".

Uh uh uh, before you mistaken my mini rant that is about to take place for "Hatertude", please take a moment to try and understand where I’m coming from.

Before I continue on let me be clear in saying; everyone is entitled to express themselves how they see fit, everyone is allowed to claim their life and declare their desire to change for the better in the new year...I just need for people to start living up to their potential.

This is very easy for anyone to say of course, I am no exception...I too need to get my ISH together; which is why I decided years ago that if I’m going to make a declaration of actual effort to change and improve...then I wouldn't be the person who hoards that improvement for the end of a year, only  to show the most minimal stick-to-itiveness possible after the first week following the New Year and reverting back to the same BS I wanted to believe so desperately I was going to change.

As far as I’m concerned, everyday is New Years and chance to be better.

Don't take another second for granted.
