As the first quarter of the year 2014 closed, I looked around and took stock and realized that for the first time in my adult life, I am living MY life, not surviving another crisis, not appeasing someone else, not trying to hide from my past, etc. And after I had a good cry, got depressed because I might not ever get the chance to do some of the things that I took for granted when I was 18, trembled in fear at the thought of having to actually show up for life, I was completely and totally blissed out and anxious for more!

I didn’t win that novel contest, but so what, I am now a published author who will be adding another two books to her resume. I am ten pounds lighter than I was a month ago. I believe that I will once again wear jeans! And I suddenly realized I enjoy my own company and I am content. Totally bizarre feeling, being content, not something I have been before, ever. It is really cool!

So, here I am, revved, in control, blessed beyond measure and ready to take on another ten or twenty pounds!

Member Since: 3/1/2014

Fitness Minutes: 952

My Goals:
To write everyday.

To learn something about writing, losing weight and taking care of my body everyday.

To use the tools at my disposal.

To not listen to anyone who cannot or will not get on board with my vision.

To stop letting everyone else’s problems be mine.

My Program:
To eat a nutrient-based diet that does not exceed my caloric intake guidelines.

To have at least 75% of my diet come from food that has micronutrients and the other 25% from macronutrient rich food that is non-processed.

To do the dreaded cardio at least 5 days a week.

To strength train at least 3 times a week.

To get more sleep.

Personal Information:
I am a firm believer in the paranormal, energy fields, auras, chakras, and the power of Earth, Air, Water and Fire. I am an open-minded, incredibly eclectic believer in the God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit. I worship in the cathedral that God surrounded us with and we call Nature.

I am as liberal as they come. Cannot stand hate-speak and will not tolerate it. I am proudly pansexual, (if you need to look it up, because I am not bisexual).

I have a love/hate relationship with my antidepressant and anxiety meds. Which means, yes, I have struggles with depression and anxiety. But I am discovering that most authors/writers do, to some degree or another.

Other Information:
I am obsessed with the horror genre. From books to movies to graphic novels, I just love it! I tend to hang out most in the land of ghosts and vampires, but I can appreciate a good slasher movie. I am tired of Zombies, unless they involve Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez and the Resident Evil franchise.

My favorite movie is currently, Rose Red. My favorite book is much harder to come up with because I love to read and enjoy so many authors, in so many different genres.

I have learned to love a new author’s work, my own. Which is new to me. My finished novel is called The Choice, and it is a horror novel.

    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face.
    And when that person has ugly thoughts every day,
    every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier
    until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it.
    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly.
    You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth.
    But if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
    ~Roald Dahl~

    ~~~~Creativity Takes No Excuses~~~~

    If it's important enough, YOU'LL TAKE

    If you don't know where to start,

    If you feel stuck, ASK SOMEONE TO

    If you're tired, TAKE A TIMED BREAK.

    If you don't know how to do it, TRY

    If you believe that you can do it,

    ~~~~~~Happy Wednesday~~~~~~
    Love all, trust a few, do
    Wrong to none.
    (William Shakespeare)
    Sending you Lots & Lots of (((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))

    Send A Drop Of Kindness
    Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012

    Send a drop of kindness,
    And see a happy face.
    A drop of kindness goes real far,
    It may even reach outer space.

    Send a drop of love,
    And feel a loving embrace.
    It feels so good to feel like,
    You are in the right place.

    Send a drop of hope,
    But be that shinning star.
    Hope is wonderful to have,
    But sometimes you can't sit away so far.

    Send a drop of faith,
    With a single prayer.
    And God will show the way,
    As faith is always there.

    Have an emoticon day! emoticon emoticon

    Sometimes the strongest
    women are the ones who
    love beyond all faults,
    cry behind closed doors,
    and fights battles that
    nobody knows about.

    Are you a strong woman?

    Have a fun-filled, fabulous, fantastic, faithful, and friendly Friday!!
