This is me now:
What a difference a year makes, and a commitment to getting healthy.
My birthday present to myself this year is committing to a another year of making me a healthier, happier person. That girl a year ago was unhappy, overweight, frustrated and trying to hide behind a smile. A year later, at 34, I’m still the same girl in some ways. I still feel sad, overweight and frustrated. Oh yea, I still hide behind that smile too. But this year, I’m different in many ways too. I feel hope. This year, I have confidence that I am working on me the right way, to battle the sadness, to make myself healthy and strong. All of which will ease the frustration I feel at times. This year I look at where I have been and it makes me so proud where I am now and confident that I’ll make it where I want to be.
Okay, sappy birthday, i-have-come-so-far, can’t-wait-to-be-34 post is over. Wanna see what else I got myself for my birthday???
I also bought myself this little gem (got it for a steal through Coach Factory…let me know if you want an invite).
Anyone wanting to lavish me with gifts for my birthday, here are a few places and things just to give you some ideas, you know in case you are rich and have spare money to spend on someone you don’t know…(I kid, I kid…but not really): here, here, here and here.
