A couple of words changed my life.

A while ago I was so down like I've never been before, it was one of those times when you terribly need guidance, you need someone to remind you who you are as a human and what you are capable of, I came here and I wrote what I felt I let everything...

Body Image

Do you ever just sit and sulk about yourself? I was talking to an old friend and her previous relationship was not a good one for me. I know it wasn't/isn't my relationship but her boyfriend or whatever they were/are would always make comments to me....

9 weeks after surgery: Good news and bad news

So it's officially the 9 week mark. Because I never had a formal cast, it's not like I can look forward to having the cast taken off. BUT, after two weeks of physical therspy from hell, and a whole new set of xrays, I do have one thing to look forward...

Finding Happiness.

Smile every chance you get.  Not because life has been easy, perfect, or exactly as you had anticipated, but because you choose to be happy and grateful for all the good things you do have and all the problems you know you don’t have. Never let a...

“You are your own best judge.” When you start judging yourself by looking through the eyes of your parents, husband, friends, or boss, you end up running around doing more and more in an effort to gain their approval. It does not take long before...

Your Self Worth.

Don’t go around begging for love. Don’t put yourself in that position. Just know that in this moment you are enough, you are good enough and you don’t need anyone or anything to feel this way. Never get your sense of worth from outside yourself. Don’t...

Another Night...

It's one of those nights again. I sit here and question every little thing. Why am I here? What can I do to become happy again? Am I just overexaggerating?  I'm at war with myself. Nonstop fighting and thinking. What can I do? I try and distract...
