Getting my

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

I picked up the term "RAWR" from my best friend. When I think about it I picture someone who feels strong (mentally and physically), powerful, confident and not afraid of change. I had some "RAWR" for awhile but lately it's been lacking in my life. I am in the process of a divorce (I had no idea it would take so long) and I've been frustrated with the situation lately. I'm starting to feel powerless about what's going on. Today I had a stern talk with myself (no beating myself up, just putting the facts out there) and realized that I'm not powerless. I can help determine how this is going to go. I've been having a bit of a pity party the past couple of days...not exercising, sleeping a lot and not eating healthy. Well...that's done! It's time to pull on the big girl panties and get my RAWR up and running.

I have no reason to feel sorry for myself. I've got the best support system anyone could ask for. I've got a great family, great friends and sparkpeople. I've got the ability to improve my health and my life. So...here I go...again. This is "The year of Sarah" and I'm looking forward to it.

Watch out world...here I come :)

    Way to keep your chin up! It can be good to let yourself have a "pity party" for a few days...allow yourself to get it out of your system...but now you are doing the right thing by shaking off the no-energy blahs and getting back out there!

    Ahhhh....perfect blog. I completely understand, sister. And I'm right there with ya. I've been letting the "trash" in my life bury me. (A-hole boss, stupid guy friends, etc). I've got to find my big girl panties and put those babies back on, too!

    We can do this, Sarah...I know we can!

    Rawr, baby....rawr!!!
