    but the truth is that I love the idea of

    improving myself and would love to be able to do that. But whenever I find myself in any kind of unpleasant situation, i don't see myself anywhere near improving my attitude or behavior! and most of the time it's painful and harmful for self.

    I am always left surprised by how the human

    brain and emotions work. Yesterday I was so depressed about my weight. This morning I got up early and went to a bootcamp class and it really made me feel better. It takes so much discipline to regularly exercise, but I realize now that it really rejuvenates body, mind and...

    Never go back to an old love,

    no matter how strong it is. It's like reading a book over and over again when you already know how it ends.

    It doesn't matter who you are

    or what you can do. There is always a little bit of improvement somewhere in your life. Whether it be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual you can improve. And that is exactly what I am always doing. Everyday is a new day to learn and improve on myself.

    I don't owe it to you to react positively

    when you mistreat me. I'm allowed to call you out. I'm allowed to be angry. It doesn't make me any less kind or positive.

    It's been about two years

    now since I first realized I had a problem. It was my 2nd year in college and I was talking to a professor about my idea for my independent study. She had started making a few corrections and I started to cry and quickly excused myself from her office. I sat in my car crying...

    I am a single mother of 2 children.

    I just ended a 3 year relationship because I am career focused and he couldn't handle it. If you can't get on the level, get out of my way!

    Always always always strive to be a better

    version of yourself. Evolve, grow, face your demons with your head held high...this is your LIFE and it's not here to stay, so get it together. Life gets overwhelming and it's easy to drown in the everyday struggles. Hard to explain why, but I look up to the sky and see the sun...

    Time For A Major Overhaul!

    Floating

    I awoke this morning and felt the absence of my usual sense of wonder. I missed it.   In fact, I felt like crying.   Well, I don’t have anything against crying… but … the day was beautiful… did I really want to fill it with my tears?   And where were these tears coming...

    I am one month sober today.

    I thought I was going to ruin it earlier this week, but I didn't. I used to drink 4-5 glasses or more of whiskey/rum/vodka per night. Now I don't have a single drop.

    How am I always improving myself?

    I do so by improving my relationships with others. I do so by building strong, healthy, lasting friendships. You are who you hang around.

    3 solutions to every problem: accept it,

    change it, leave it. If you can't accept it, change it. If you can't change it, leave it.

    Embrace The Change...

    since I've smoked a cigarette. I didn't think I would be able to do it at first, especially without the use of nicotine patches or gum, but it's honestly very easy now. Week 3 here I come!!

    On My Road to Victory

    For the past 7 years, my life had been mostly a struggle, more so psychologically, as I had acquired a lot of fears which at the time I could not understand, let alone deal with. I was shy, anxious in just about any social situation, and eventually got depressed. I realise now...

    You know all the stupid stuff

    that gets you down? Don't let it. You are much better than that so started realising it now. Ignore and forget the cr*p. And just learn to enjoy every moment, like every moment in the present is simply the best. You can make it if you really want to.
