Peace Love Rain Snow

I do wish it would snow here!
I'm Renee'. 51 years old, married with 4 grown kids ages 16 to 25. Here to get back on track to losing some weight.
Words that have meaning for me....
~I am my own problem, but I'm also my own solution.
~Live less out of habit. Live more with intent.
~Never be afraid to fall apart because it's the perfect opportunity to put yourself back together the way you wanted to be all along.
~Oh mirror in the sky, what is love;
Can the child within my heart rise above;
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides;
Can I handle the seasons of my life?
~Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air...
~Secrets of success are found in your daily routines.
~Buy the ticket. Take the ride.
~The day I decided my life was magical, there was suddenly magic all around me.
~I knew who I was this morning, but I've changed a few times since then.
~Monsters are real and ghosts are real, too. They live inside us and sometimes they win.
~Time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to start, so dance alone to the beat of your heart.
~Carry on my wayward son. There'll be peace when you are done.
~Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?
~Where's your will to be weird?
~There is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness in the proportion.
~I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.
~It's not easy being the psychedelic sheep of the family.
~She dreams of the ocean late at night, and longs for the wild salt air.
~Let us dance in the sun, wearing wildflowers in our hair.

Personal Information:
Having anxiety & depression is being scared and tired at the same time. It's the fear of failure with no energy or urge to be productive. It's wanting friends but hating to socialize & feeling everyone hates you & no one cares anyhow. It's wanting to be alone but not lonely. It's caring about everything then caring about nothing. It's feeling everything all the time then feeling completely numb. It's answering 'I'm fine.' instead of opening up because it's easier than trying to explain what's going on in your head because you really don't know what's going on in your head. It's wanting a full life, but feeling so very empty. It's really loving who you are, yet hating yourself at the same time. It's having a perfected fake smile to hide your injured soul so no one will ever notice how broken you really are.

Other Information:
I love horror movies, books, music & rain.

I sometimes feel I say too much, I sometimes feel I need to say more. I can't find that comfort zone.

    yep .... from late 2015 up until now, have lost so much progress that basically I gave up. Going to try one last time to get back on the right track. The road is made more difficult because of emo & physical issues but not ready to pack it in just yet. Will make an honest effort for the next couple of months and then decide.

    hope the rest of your week finds you in good health and happy spirits.
