The Daily Post: The Red Shoes

As I’ve whiffled on about on Instagram since January 1st, I don’t like this time of year and I especially don’t like the self-flagellation aspect (oh, I have to make a resolution. I have to be thinner, fitter, drier, better, more like Angelina Jolie hahaha).

It’s all just setting yourself up to fail because hardy anyone has the real deep down desire to make those resolutions come true. If you do have a deep down desire, then you’ll do it any time of the year, not wait for January to roll around. But total self-indulgence isn’t the either. I’ve tried that too and just got fat.

So this year I tried ‘magic’. That is, keeping the fairy tale aspect of Christmas, without all the over doing it and pressure. So, in this little photo story, my red haired lady might be on her way to the gym. But she’s wearing a pair of magical red shoes… and the gym is in a castle…
