You Don't Have To Be What They Tell You To Be!

My life has always been an ever-changing journey down a winding path, absolutely filled with twists and turns. I am not exactly sure how I got from the beginning to where I am now, but I am sure glad it happened. Somehow I have arrived in this place I need to be. I am engaged in the continuous process of building a new and better life for myself. It is a lot of work, but that is ok with me. If you just sit around waiting for good things to happen, they probably never will. I have my good days ...
My life has always been an ever-changing journey down a winding path, absolutely filled with twists and turns. I am not exactly sure how I got from the beginning to where I am now, but I am sure glad it happened. Somehow I have arrived in this place I need to be. I am engaged in the continuous process of building a new and better life for myself. It is a lot of work, but that is ok with me. If you just sit around waiting for good things to happen, they probably never will. I have my good days and my bad but that's just part of life. Mostly things are good. I have wonderful friends, an awesome husband, great pets and a cool family. What more could a girl ask for?

What else is there to know about me? I am a Leo. I graduated from Michigan State University and I am currently a Doctorial psychology student in Chicago. When I finish my schooling I want to go into clinical practice and work for a non-profit organization that assists underserved populations. Because of my strong commitment to equality I will become involved in social policy and advocacy throughout my career. To quote Edward Norton in Death to Smoochy “you can’t change the world, but you can make a dent!” That is exactly what a plan to do.

Today is Teddy Bear Day! It says, “A Teddy Bear is a special friend to children all over the world. He's cuddly. He makes you feel secure in an otherwise insecure world. He's lovable. Your Teddy Bear is both a companion and a comforter. And, he's not afraid of the dark. He'll keep you safe.

Teddy bears are, of course, named after US President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt. The name came about after a 1902 hunting expedition. The hunt had found no game, so at the end of the day someone brought out a baby bear and suggested that Roosevelt might like to shoot it instead. Roosevelt understandably felt that this was not exactly sporting and refused.

HELPS you when you need it..... I. INSISTS that you continue.... J. JOINS you on your journey.... K KICKS you when you need it.... L. LOVES you AS IS.... M. MAKES you laugh when you need to... N NEVER lets you down.... O. OFFERS you Support.... P. PICKS you up... Q. QUIETS your fears.... R. RESPECTS your Process... S. SUPPORTS your efforts.... T. TELLS you the truth... U.

¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¨Welcome to the EE team!!
I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
