Changed my user name to Grateful Dawn

Saturday, April 05, 2014

I just changed my user name to reflect my actual name and the state of being that I wish to have in my life. When I chose my user name years ago I had used a name that I had used in role playing games in college and which I later used as my name in a inbound technical support call center plus my employee number (Helena988816).

It just feels more honest to use my real name. Making real, lasting changes in my life requires honesty and integrity. It means taking a real look at myself and seeing myself for who I really am. Being honest about how much weight that I have to lose and making the commitment to keep the weight off once I lose it.

Real change begins with loving and accepting myself as I am right now. From this point I can take steps to be the healthiest me I can be.

Here's to becoming our healthiest selves! emoticon

    IT's funny you say that... the name I use here, is also a "handle" during the pre-internet bbs systems and a connection to Stevie Nicks album. If changing your name here, makes you feel better - then it definitely a good move for you.

Im proud of you.
