Life is so much more than what we eat or how we move or how we look to others. It's about living! To our fullest potential.

Yet what we eat and how we move ultimately will affect us. I am coming out of a hole of depression and food comfort.

It's been a tough three year battle with my own health while caring for my extended family and my own household...the well known "sandwich" season of life. Just over a year ago, I lost my Mom (in-law) to a 3 month fight with infection after pancreatic cancer surgery and 9 months since I lost my Dad (in-law) to a 2 month fight with pneumonia. I also had a surgery less than a year ago. I miss my "parents". They had been a rock in my life for almost 28 years.

But ... I learned a few lessons: I no longer feel guilty for taking care of self. I now know that to enjoy my own life, it's the little things I do that add up to an amazing return in my peace of mind and state of heart.

I need to learn to love and see myself as Worthwhile. I need to see myself as others see me: optimistic, sometimes crazy-fun woman who loves driving her jeep, re-storing her FJ40, camping, hiking, & watching football; and get back into baking, cooking, crocheting & using her camera.
