ONEderland but I've got to live outside of the Mirror.

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Good Morning everyone!

I finally made it to ONEderland. A place I haven't been too in probably 7 years. But that's not really the interesting stuff. I've been learning to focus on my other talents and live my life how I want regardless of size!

I've recently taken up knitting, jewelery making, and I'm attempting to write my first novel. I've been pulling myself out of the Mirror as it were.

However, I will be the first to admit it does help that my confidence has received a boost! And that I have a ton more energy than I did before. I can go jogging with my dogs now, so now they are so less hyper than before and I even got checked out by a guy when I was going car shopping with my significant other. I'm taken of course but the look was much appreciated!

Well I'm just rambling at this point! But I thought I'd show you some of my new projects!

Booties for my new Nephew!:

Trying my hand at earrings!:

Me trying them on:

    emoticon on reaching that huge milestone, sweetie! emoticon Or to quote some unknown Sparker, You Rock, Loser! emoticon

And it's emoticon that you are building confidence and joy in other areas of life, as well. Some folks can get so obsessed with their exercise and analyzing their food intake that they sort of forget the whole point of becoming more fit and getting healthy is to enjoy life--not to keep losing weight or reach some "magic" number.

Love the booties and the earrings-- emoticon Wishing you continued success and joy on your journey!

Blessed Be, Amanda emoticon
