Hello and thanks for visiting me ! Let me introduce myself to you.
The introduction is where most people ask you to be “real” when describing yourself. So, I will try to do that for you.
WHO AM I?
Still trying to figure that out.
BEST QUALITIES IN LIFE
I would have to say some of my best qualities are dignity in face of adversity, I’m honest, generous, understanding and I show great actions of selflessness when it comes to those I love.
I have a well-rounded sense of humor and really like the fact that my husband provides me with enough laughter to take away some heartaches.
LIFE ISN’T ALWAYS EASY
Our lives always had to be structured, disciplined and patterned. Structure leaves less chance for degrees of unpredictability, which can make life more difficult for our family. It wasn’t by choice that I chose to live this way, but rather for a specific need that our lives had evolved to this.
With each up-hill battle, I learned a new set of skills to deal with another portion of my life. In taking care of their needs, I found that I have the strength inside me to overcome anything I put my mind to.
NO ROOM FOR PITY
I came last on the chain of command in my household, as far needs go. Truthfully, it helped our household run well and we could not have kept a stable home environment any other way. It is not something I want people to pity…because I am in control to change things. I’m making choices that place me as an equal in my household ranks and in life.
WHEN YOU FALL – YOU PICK YOUR BUTT UP
When you put yourself on the low-end of the spectrum for too many years, you fall apart on the inside but look perfectly put together on the outside. Certainly, I don’t recommend it, and most people couldn’t live the life. You need to be strong; mentally, emotionally and physically in order to deal with all aspects of life.
My experiences have shaped me for the better. The experiences have pulled out some rather great qualities. Some, I didn’t know that I had within me or I had felt that I did not.
I NEED SOMEONE TO ANSWER TO
I seem to do well when I have someone to answer to. Maybe, because I have had so many years of practice doing it out of necessity. It gives me a greater purpose in my life, being the one people look to in the time of need; or, so I think. This time – I’m answering to myself and YOU.
LET THE JOURNEY BEGIN!
Tomorrow’s journey begins Day 1 of the 365 days to weight loss blog. It will become a blog, not about one year of struggles but rather the trials of living every day of your life and a place to share my thoughts on what shaped me into thinking I did not measure up in this world and what I will do to change those thought patterns..
