    When I was small the family would visit my

    grand aunt . She lived in an old farm house with just a pot belly stove for heat. I would sleep with Mom and Dad upstairs in a feather bed...it felt so secure.

    Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed.

    It means the damage no longer controls our lives.

    Self Love Once when I was running,

    from all that haunted me; to the dark I was succumbing- to what hurt unbearably. Searching for the one thing, that would set my sad soul free. In time I stumbled upon it, an inner calm and peace; and now I am beginning, to see and to believe, in who I am becoming...

    As I get older I'm learning more

    and more to be myself.... I don't only live to please others, to take care of others, to make everyone else happy....Sometimes I have to be a little selfish...to think of ME first..... After all, this journey is mine.... And the clock is ticking

    Well just left the gym.

    . My goal is at least 15 min everyday.. Walking to my vehicle I looked in the western sky and saw a bright star and just a sliver of the moon. I thought how like my heart the moon is. And how now the only thing left is the sliver but I have hope that someday it will be full again...

    According to the BMI (Body Mass Index)

    for my current height weight and age I am obese. And I am. I know this and it has bugged me for a long time. But I want to change how I am. I want to get fit and feel better about myself. Now I am stretching every morning and trying to get in better health.

    I've heard that time heals all wounds.

    .. So I'm wondering why, after all this time, I am still having such a hard time accepting things the way they are?? I feel like a piece of me is missing, and I am trying so hard to search for that missing piece. The more time that passes makes me realize that I am missing the...

    How can you dedicate time to figuring out

    yourself when you have to deal with bills, drama, and absolute needs? I have no clue. I'm either working, in lectures, cleaning or sleeping. There is no time to relax. Hell, I'm lucky I have energy in the evenings to even come on here. Tips anyone?

    I love my daughter more than anything. She is amazing. However my husband ignores me. I work like a dog and he ******* I don't make enough money compared to him. I feel like a second class citizen in my house. He makes fun of me and gets angry and defensive at the drop of a dime...

    New to this. Not sure what to say.

    So, here goes nothing. I am incredibly bored. I have a great life and probably shouldn't complain. I just don't know what to do anymore. I don't like where I live, even though I have a great home. Don't like my lover, even though by all standards he is great. I just want...

    Working, school, and losing weight I'm back to me! Sometimes I find myself thinking about the past and start pitying myself, but then I tell myself life goes on.

    I've gone through a huge amount of change

    during the past few years of my life, but I'd like to continue to grow from that. I do think life is beautiful and that we have complete control of our outlook on it. We can choose to dwell in what's wrong or celebrate what is right. We can body shame ourselves or choose to...

    Some of you know I mostly struggle with

    relationships. But once I'd made my mind up to stop attempting a Jessica Rabbit to his Roger and start reprising the role of Marge to his Homer, things got a lot better. Encore! Bravo! *collects roses and sweeps off the stage exit right*

    Somedays are harder than others.

    I have always been driven by my feelings and emotions, even perceived as too emotional sometimes, but I can't be like this anymore. I have to let go of my past, I have to let go and regroup my self, my thoughts, my goals. I will be fine, it will all be ok, take a deep breath...

    I don't want to be down anymore so I've changed my diet, started exercising and trying positive affirmations. It's hard but I have to do this for my sanity.

    hanging over my head, and the solution is often so much easier than the fretting over the problem! good examples : filing tax returns, dealing with insurance companies, and getting cars serviced. feeling powerful today!
