Find Me

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Today, I hauled my voluptuous booty outta bed.
Took my necessary medications.
Got naked.
Weighed in... (Ugggghhhh, up 1.8 lbs, water weight perhaps?)
Got dressed.
Got the kid dressed.
Fed him.
Found my tennie runners.
Took the boy to his bus with the dog.
Took the dog around the block.
Went home and grabbed my iPod.
Left dog at home and went for another "me time" 0.85 mile walk.
Stopped by the store before coming home and picked up 'Hotel Transylvania' from the redbox for my boy who gets out of school early today to surprise him. (He's been dying to watch it.)
Went home and made myself a strawberry smooth that contained a splash of milk, fat-free strawberry yogurt and about 10 big frozen strawberries.
And now...
I'm sitting here sipping it and writing this blog....

How exciting! emoticon
All that done before 9 am... Nice... and the whole day lies ahead.
Let's just pray my teenager doesn't hurt my decent mood by playing another disappearing act for hours and hours today after school. But I'm not going to let that ruin my day until it happens, IF it happens.... it better not... grrrr....
emoticon lol

So, I'm not sure really what the point of this blog is...
Perhaps it's just to share that I'm in a decent and hopeful mood today.
But also to share the song of my day...
Every time I walk there always seems to be a song that touches my heart with it's lyrics, the one that stands out among all the others on that particular day... Today that song was...

FIND ME by Diana Degarmo
(I SOOOO wish youtube had it but I couldn't find it. Look for it if you can, it's good.)
Here is a link to amazon if you can use it...

So here are the lyrics...

"Find Me"

When morning comes
I'm gonna force myself to crawl out of this bed
Open my eyes
And stare out at the open road ahead
Oh, I have stumbled
Been knocked down
But now I'm ready to leave the ground

[Chorus]
And fly, spread my wings
And leave the past behind
There's a life for me that I wanna find
And I'm strong enough to be myself this time
I'm wanna leave and not look back
I wanna laugh and love and dance
Don't wanna miss another chance
To find me

For so long
Oh I was too afraid to make a change
Nobody knew
The smile I wore was just a masquerade
Now I'm letting go of
All my fears
No more hiding
No more tears

[Chorus]
I'm gonna fly, spread my wings
And leave the past behind
There's a life for me that I wanna find
And I'm strong enough to be myself this time
I'm wanna leave and not look back
I wanna laugh and love and dance
Don't wanna miss another chance
To find me

Oh I've made promises
To everyone else
And now it's time I do something
For myself
Yeah

[Chorus]
Hey I'm gonna fly, spread my wings
And leave the past behind
There's a life for me that I wanna find
And I'm strong enough to be myself this time
I'm wanna leave and not look back
I wanna laugh and love and dance
Don't wanna miss another chance
To find me
Yeah, yeah
Oh
Find me

~~~ Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday everyone... don't forget to keep searching and reaching for your dreams. I am and someday I hope to really "find me" too.

emoticon, Marisa

    emoticon You are amazing! I'm so stinking proud of you.

    (When I grow up, I want to be you) Well, that's not creepy at all! Haha. But really, I know you're struggling and I know you're hurting, but look at you! You're pulling yourself up and you're doing this. Every little step forward is a step closer to good health and all your goals. Keep going. Maybe you'll light a spark under my butt too.
