New life

bud

My last couple years have been difficult to say the least. I have gone through and continue to go through some really difficult times. I try to be happy and upbeat. I try to be strong, especially for my kids. I try to enjoy life. I have been in a counseling group for a little over a year. I meet with three ladies who love me put don’t pull any punches. Sometimes I come out of my meeting feeling loved and sometimes I feel really beat up. It is wonderful to have a place where you can cry, feel challenged and really grow as a person. I am starting to feel as though I am getting a new life. I feel like I am turning into the person I want to be. I am starting to be confident, I am helping others with my experiences (this is a passion of mine) and I am starting to be comfortable in my own skin again. In order to be comfortable in my own skin, I have started the South Beach diet. I am tired of looking in the mirror and feeling tears. I have clothes in my closet that I would love to wear. I am not looking to be any magical weight or size. I am wanting to be healthy. I want to live long and be with my kids. I cannot change all the circumstances and crap in my life BUT I can change me and how I react to the crap. That is what I am working on and it feels really good.

    That is so awesome. Focus on health and happiness and not an exact weight or size. Go you!!

    Feeling comfortable in your self (and your skin) is a wonderful thing to aspire to and I wish you much success. Life is hard, I know, but I do believe that our trials form us into who we are, for better or worse, we must be who we are and believe in ourselves.
