Is it just not a car-buying day? Or are you having bad weather again?

Hi Monet! Good to see you again. Glad you stopped by. It's been a busy day and It feels good to finally sit down!

How have you been?

I got this in an email.. and I loved it.. so I am sharing it with the ones I LOVE



I'm doing this for me. Not for those who called me too fat to be pretty.
Not for the snooty vendors who look down on me when I try on dresses.
Not for those who say "Too bad, she has a pretty face".
Not to make my parents happy.
Not to fit in to a stereotypical idea of beauty.

I'm doing this to get healthy.
To show myself that I can.
To be a strong woman: I can be athletic. I can be beautiful.
I want to feel good in my own skin.
I want to find MYSELF beautiful.
I want to look in my mirror and smile.

I don't want to think "What if I felt good in my skin ..." anymore.
I don't want to look at a beautiful dress and think "Too bad..."
I don't want to think of myself in disgust. My body and I deserve better than that.
I don't want to mistreat my body. It's not my own little garbage can.
I don't want to devalue my health.
I do not want to binge and purge, binge and purge.
I do not want to punish myself anymore.

Hmmmm... I don't think I'd ever want to jump off a tower like that. My fear of heights is not stopping me from anything I WANT to do in life, so I don't see the point in doing something that's gonna give me a heart attack on the way down!
