Bet you think I look a lot like Meryl Streep, but maybe it's Meryl who looks a lot like me ;-)

"The tragedy of growing old is that you’re young."
Oscar Wilde

It is true,, no matter how old we get, we are still the same person on the inside. We still want the same things, even if some of us have veered off course along the way. We still want to look good. We still want to feel good physically, mentally and emotionally. We still have goals and we still have dreams.
Even though I have seriously veered off course in the last several years and have for a time lost my way, I am still that young woman who first set sail. I still have goals and I still have dreams ... and I am here to do all that is within my power to try to reach them.

Let it be ... Oh let it be

I agree. I feel completely unworthy, yet if I am personally attacked I will respond with fierce aggression and anger. How dare someone attempt to sully my name? I have worked hard to create a very good reputation amongst people that know me and I will absolutely not tolerate someone bashing me! Yet I allow myself to "self bash" all the time... makes no sense at all!

Thank you for the goodie :) If it ever looks like I have my act together, just remember the parable of the duck on the pond; He looks very calm and serene floating around, but under the surface he's working like crazy to keep things moving.

I can't look back at my life and say "I wasn't loved enough as a child...", I was loved plenty and still have a great relationship with my parents. However, I think the ending of my marriage in 1998 is what left me with no love for myself. I have a hard time accepting compliments because I feel I possess nothing worthy of complimenting. Conversely, when bad things happen I feel I deserved them, for being an abject failure at life.

Everything I try to do feels like an uphill battle because a big part of me keeps saying that I don't deserve anything good; fitness, health, career, love, etc. It makes damn near every aspect of my life a struggle! And sometimes I just want to stop.

So now I can say that I didn't mean to get deep, sometimes it just happens. :)

Have a great rest of the week :)

Thanks for the blog comment. Luckily Thanksgiving for me was just one day, one meal. I have not had any leftovers either, which is a bit odd. Years past I would be enjoying thick turkey sandwiches, but for some reason I just don't want them now.

You're right, so often the friends we make here are what keeps us going when we're not feeling up to it. Although sometimes I feel bad because even when people say nice things and compliment me, I still can't take them to heart. My self loathing over rides the niceties and I continue to feel ashamed and unworthy. This is something that I need to work on, most assuredly!

IAM _hiS sent this to me, and it was so precious I thought of you. eva
IAM_his sent this to me, and it was so precious I am sending it to you.
Most of All
Thanksgiving Day brings to mind
the blessings in our lives
that usually go unnoticed:
a home that surrounds us
with comfort and protection;
delicious food, for pleasure
in both eating and sharing;
clothes to snuggle up in,
books and good entertainment
to expand our minds;
and freedom to worship our God.
Most of all we are thankful
for our family and friends,
those treasured people
who make our lives extra special.
You are part of that cherished group.
On Thanksgiving, (and every day)
I appreciate you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
I spent my holiday just celebrating another day, by myself. I haven't been doing too good on my diet, because I blew it because I went into severe scoliosis-severe back problems, & have been going to physical therapy. I am much better now, and eating turkey is no biggy. eva
