For the last number of years, I've been obsessed with losing weight and trying to look better. My goal now is to feel better.

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.

In less than a year, I have lost my Mother-in-law (9 months ago) to a 3 month fight with infection after pancreatic cancer surgery and my Father-in-law (2 1/2 months ago) to a 2 month fight with pneumonia. I also had a surgery 4 months ago.Life isn't about how much you have, how perfect your body is, or what others think. Life is to be enjoyed with contentment, love and a fun attitude. Find the good. Be grateful. Move forward.

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've learned to love and see myself as Worthwhile. I now look at myself & see who others see: optimistic, sometimes crazy-fun woman who loves driving her jeep, re-storing her FJ40, camping, hiking, & watching football; who loves baking, crocheting & is seldom without her camera.

And there ain't nothing wrong with that.

    Long time no see! How's it going in Canada? Blessings from the desert in the Southwest US! I hope you are doing well. This has been my year of the "hospital" and I don't like it one bit. emoticon
