Up late and rambling because the kitchen is closed

Saturday, January 17, 2015

What is it about blogging that draws me? It's not like anyone is reading them. I knew that would be the case when I decided to quit pretending to be cheerful 24/7.
I mean It's not like I spend my life with a little storm cloud over my head, I just need to get a little more real about life the universe and, well, me.
I had a wonderful time tonight; the whole family got together for dinner at my brother's place. We had 2 tables full of people, the table I was at was discussing the history of politics in Alaska, and the other table was discussing Japanese talking toilets. So I ask you, what really is the difference?
The problem I have with trying to pretend that my issues aren't there is I can't deal with issues I can't even look at. I mean how am I supposed to lose weight without mucking about in the dark side of who I am? If I can't dig up the feelings, face them, and make peace with them how can I ever hope to stop self-soothing? Continuing to try weight loss without the messier work of sorting myself out as a person is the very definition of insanity.
So here I am, messy, not always upbeat, sometimes whiny, but never boring. Well, mostly never boring anyway.

    Keep blogging! You are already acknowledging that there is another side to getting healthy, cleaning out the negativity that has contributed to the problem. Once I started doing that, I realized a lot about myself. It isn't a fun process, but it is a freeing one. Keep up the good work. You are AWESOME and gonna lick whatever stands in your way!
