Home is where the cats are.

It took me a long time, but I've finally decided to join SP to try and lose weight. I have health issues and issues with self-esteem, and I just feel like it's time to get serious about losing weight.

It took me a long time, but I've finally decided to join SP to try and lose weight. I have health issues and issues with self-esteem, and I just feel like it's time to get serious about losing weight.

I am in my 40s and live in the DC area with my boyfriend and 7 rescued cats. We are vegans and are learning how to homestead, little by little.

I pay my bills as a secretary, but started my own business selling photography goods and services, hand crafts, virtual assisting and writing/editing services, and vintage goods back in 2008. THAT is where my heart is--with my own business. It's just too young to support me yet.

When I'm not working--and I work a LOT, as you can guess--I like to travel, cook (I especially enjoy taking traditional recipes and veganizing them,) read, and of course help animals. (I no longer take animals into my home, but I try and remain active in animal rescue in other ways.) I am an artist and Child of Nature at heart (Hippie!)

As active as I am, there is not much I love more than my home, my boyfriend, and my animals.

It's nice to meet you!

Courage is very important. Like a muscle, it is strengthened by use. A very dear SparkFriend this week posted on our Recovering Alcoholics team thread, Sobriety Blessings, this incredible reflection, "Sobriety has given me the courage to do the right thing in spire of my fear."

In my blog, Strength Training Builds More Than Muscle, I focused on having the courage to change our lifestyle and to reach our goals, our heart's desires.

Success is not final.
Failure is not fatal.
It is the courage to continue that counts.

Blessings today and always! emoticon

Courage is fear that has said its prayers!

I completed Steps Four and Five this week with my sponsor. I am a grateful recovering alcoholic.This has been a soul searching and incredibly empowering week for me. I just want to share something from my AA meeting today:

" Higher Power take my will and my life. Guide me in my recovery.
Show me how to live. "

One incredible new team member of Recovering Alcoholics reminded me how important it is to revisit Step One each and every day. I do this and also revisit daily Steps Two and Three also. The inspirational thought I have shared speaks to Step Three:

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of
God as we understood Him.

The serenity which floods my soul is indescribable, but I know you have experienced this and can share in the joy of living sober!

Blessings and a BIG emoticon
