Where to begin...

I am a single mom to one beautiful daughter who is my inspiration. I would be lying if I said I was truly happy because I’m really not. I am happy with the fact that I am a mom and my dear daughter at this point in time is the only thing that makes me happy. I haven’t been happy with my station in life for a while, so for the past 3 years I have been going to school to become a teacher. I know that going back to school at my age is a huge accomplishment but it’s hard to be proud of myself when all I can think of is I should have done this a long time ago. Now that I am getting closer to finishing my education, I am afraid my weight will hurt me when it is time to find a job. I am afraid that the people who do the hiring will look at me and think “can she keep up with the kids” or “what kind of example will she set for her students.” It’s weird, I know I am more than capable of being a great teacher; however, I lack the confidence that’s needed to show everyone else that I am capable.

So I must admit that this journey is going to be a long one because I have a major habit of not finishing something when things get tough. I have never liked doing anything that was hard, I don’t like being in pain, and I don’t like putting myself out there because of my fear of being hurt. So I know this is going to be the hardest thing I have ever done. I have been a quitter in the past but no more… I CAN AND I WILL BEAT THIS!!!
