    I am 44 and overweight.

    .. I started a regime a week a go and I've been disciplined. I know I can do it. Am I too old for doing a triathlon?

    I've been starving myself

    for the last week. This doesr happen often but I'm riding high on a wave of deep stress. I'm overweight again and this is my quick fix for getting down again. I'm terrified of good because I can't control myself and I'm also quite lazy. My energy is low my breath stinks and I...

    Be present. Make love.

    Make tea. Avoid small talk. Embrace conversation. Buy a plant. Water it. Make your bed. Make someone else's bed. Have a smart mouth and a quick wit. Run. Make art. Create. Swim in the ocean. Swim in the rain. Take chances. Ask questions. Make mistakes. Learn. Know your worth...

    Been through a lot. Lost a lot along the way.

    Confidence, peace of mind, friendships, too. However, God is good, and I'm looking at the negative through positive lenses, because he's about to replace all that I've lost with better.

    I am going to start doing something

    once a week or more that stretches my comfort zone, and helps me feel alive. Today I will pay for someone's groceries in front or back of me, or pay for their meal in the drive through, or some type of random act of kindness that presents itself. I'll return and report.

    My world collapsed right in front me.

    I spent an hour and a half with an 82 year old

    lady in the small confines of a tiny square fire lobby. It was one of those life happenings that just kind of happen. She fell down the steepest flight of stairs ever landing on the concrete lobby floor on her head and shoulders. There wasn't an awful lot I could do except keep...

    I'm guessing in today's society

    that would require me to be slightly less deeper than a puddle. Ah **** it, I'll continue to be me, the rest of you can suck it up.

    I think being more Womanly is the answer

    for me. Being more feminine is the goal I aspire to in order to reach higher as a person. Being a man is just not enough for me. I am limited. To be seen and accepted as a Woman would be the most wonderful ascension and promotion this life could offer. Women have created...

    I was watching one of my favorite movies today

    and I realized I was a lot like one of the characters. She was kind. Very kind. She didn't hurt people with an words and she helped people in any way that she could. I reflected on how when I was younger I wanted to be like her... I look at myself now and I can't see her in me...

    There are plenty of things about myself

    that I would like to change. I know for a fact that I am not the best person that I can be or the best friend that I could be. I think that pretty much everyone could say this and that there is not a person out there who is so perfect and doesn't have anything about themselves...

    I'm the girl that talks everyone out of suicide,

    but has a hard time keeping herself from it. I'm the girl who tells everyone how beautiful, wonderful, smart, and amazing they are, because she doesn't want them to feel the same way she does.

    I'm struggling to be stable in my school right

    now. I'm missing my dues and doing assignments really slowly. Part of the reason is because I get easily distracted and I'm a lazy girl. I get major panic attacks, and my anxiety level goes through the roof. I really need help to get out of this cycle, any suggestions?
