What will the new year bring?

The new year has settled in. Doesn’t feel all that different so far.

The biggest thing on my mind at the moment is my upcoming trip to France. I’m not sure if I have a girlfriend there or not. I guess that’s the way long distance goes. It’s been months since we’ve seen each other. Video chatting is helpful, but it only gets you so far. It’s tough when you have no idea what a person’s day-to-day life is really like.

What’s going to happen when I finally arrive in Paris? I don’t think that anyone can answer that, not even her. I sense some hesitation on her part, but I know that I put out the same vibes. It makes sense to be hesitant. That doesn’t mean that I don’t want to make the most of it and see where it goes, though. Perhaps she thinks the same way.

Regardless, I have to say that having a smoking hot French girlfriend has given my self esteem a healthy boost. Whenever I feel sluggish or unattractive, I remember that I get to choose what’s important in my life. I can either focus on my stupid acne or the time that I’ve gotten to spend with an amazing woman who likes me for who I am.

That’s a message to everyone struggling with any kind of body image issue: even if a lot of people are turned off by your acne or your lazy eye or your pudgy thighs or whatever, there are people in the world that don’t focus on those things. It’s a rare find, but it’s wonderful when it happens.
