    When I am getting healthy

    and losing weight, some people get nasty or insecure. My husband gets very insecure. I want to be around when my 2 year old gets older. This is for me.

    I'm quick to judge and it sucks

    but I don't hate anyone.

    I'm making a goal to focus on more positive

    and to stop worrying so much about things beyond my control. I've always thought the serenity prayer is so beautiful because it truly is something that we need to remind ourselves of every day. <3

    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 wrote this a couple of years ago

    and I have made a lot of progress since then. Wanting to be liked I have this strange need for people to like me. Okay, that may not seem so strange, but with me it becomes an all too consuming thought. Whether someone likes me or not should not make me miserable...

    Now I will pick myself up

    and brush myself off. Do what's exactly right by me: study hard, workout hard, take great care of myself... love myself so completely. I will be even more amazing, stronger and even better than before :)

    Whenever I get discouraged I think of the old me

    and how much better I am now. I remind myself old me would have done this and I did this. Old me would have had half a bag of Milano cookies new me just had two oreos. Old me would have bought a 2 Liter and some candy at this gas station. New me didn't buy a damn thing. This is...

    I burned my last cigarette

    before midnight. Today is now the 4th of July, marking my independence from drugs. One day at a time. I will recover and grow from the mistakes I made. Today is a new day.

    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...

    but I got a job, lost some weight, my grades are up, I've gotten accepted into my top choice colleges, and I graduate in May! God is good, I will continue to prosper.

    It's been almost 2 weeks

    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!!

    For the longest time,

    I thought I was at a stalemate with myself. No vehicle, no job, no home. I've achieved nothing since high school, how pitiful. I recently chronicled the abuse I suffered from the second semester grade 8 to the first semester of college, and with it chronicled the effects my...

    I definitely am making big changes in my life

    Had a good day. A productive day with 2 small

    victories. Met an old friend and chat. A warm weather. Attitude was a topic. What else do I have some control? How to make my emotion work for me, instead of against me? I wish I can someday. A peaceful, sleepy Sunday night with no worries. How cool is that.

    I realised a very sad reality today.

    I've been tossing this idea around in my head

    recently and was hoping to get some outside perspectives on it. "You hurt my feelings" is something I have heard over and over again, and something that I have even told other people. Recently, though I feel like this statement is inaccurate at its core. No one can hurt my...

    I feel good when I'm DOING something,

    even if only in my mind. Always thinking "what can I do better" but must get trapped or paralyzed in this too. I've decided to start "working" on doing less, not beating myself up or putting so much pressure on performance. Just be and feel who I am. Opening myself up so others...

    Gossip is the worst. As humans we are prone to

    it, but I'm making an effort to avoid it. I make an effort to keep my private life very exclusive. Exposing yourself to many people only gives them ammunition. My circle is very small. Especially at work. Learning from past jobs that the closer you get to the inner circle, the...

    I often find that younger people become obsessed

    or prove their "maturity" by believing and acting as if they know everything. Never stop educating yourself and learning from others. An intelligent person will know that he/she can never learn everything. Be grateful for the lessons you learn and the stories you hear around you...

    "The biggest barrier to happiness is

    associating with miserable and angry people. The term MISERY LOVES COMPANY is a misnomer. Misery needs company. Miserable people must justify their misery; they will make you miserable at any cost. Surround yourself with happy people."

    I am getting ready to run my first 5k!

    It's been a goal since I can remember and after lots of training and prepping I am ready! I have 4 kids so it's nice to do something for me for a change! Feels so good to be taking care of myself and it makes me a much better wife and mom!

    My new husband was a single child

    and lived a sheltered life. We have only been married a few weeks now, and since he comes from a religious family, we lived strictly apart until our wedding night. All that went well, so I won’t say more about it. But a couple of days after the “big night” things began to...
