That Famous NYE Song: My incorrect interpretation!
Tuesday, December 31, 2019
*Blog title and post edited since some helpful sparkpeople helped me understand what the song meant :). Oops
Still those thoughts pop into my my mind some days more than others of "Hey, whatever happened to my old pals cookie and brownie?! They were so sweet! I enjoyed their company immensely. They brought me comfort. Maybe I should bring them back into my life for a reunion over coffee!!" Then I thought of my incorrect interpretation of that NYE song that has the lyric "should old acquiescence be forgot and never brought to mind" (or to mouth). I take it at face value..literally and figuratively. Fuh-get-about those "friends" cookie and brownie...for good!
Cookie and brownie seemed sweet and comforting and too often I remember them fondly. Then I have to remind myself how these "friends" made me feel beyond our first few minutes together. They gently wooed me down a path of addiction and helped me ignore that my weight kept increasing. They made me feel sick, embarrassed and ashamed. While they seemed sweet on the surface, they did not nourish or enrich my life in any way. They were bad for me and bad for my well being.
I still don't actually know what the "Auld Lang Syne" song means, but cookie and brownie are old acquaintances I hope to truly forget and never bring to mind! Luckily I am surrounded by "friends" who truly nourish me and contribute to my well being like broccoli, legumes, cauliflower, blueberries, apples, avocado, flaxseed, chia, brussel Sprouts, fish, nuts (everyone needs some nutty friends), lean meats, brown rice, quinoa and so much more. I raise my glass to nourishment, health and well-being!
Best wishes for 2020! Cheers!!
