Day 73- Celebrating ME
Sunday, July 21, 2013      4 comments

I've never really celebrated me. Other people have not really celebrated me. There were many times I think I really deserved an award, but something happened and I didn't get it or someone else got it because they were friends, or I was just ove... Read more

Tuesday, July 16, 2013      1 comments

Wouldn't it feel good to get a nice big sledge hammer, take the scale outside and pulverize it into a million little pieces!!? It would be totally and completely worth the effort and deeply satisfying to my soul. I hate how it has the power to j... Read more

Day 62- Things are REALLY changing
Wednesday, July 10, 2013      4 comments
