I'm not exactly sure why, but for a long time I have denied who I really am. Whether from fear or shame or guilt, I have hidden who I really am. I'm 30 years old, and just discovering that. So who am I?

The Good:

I am passionate, and determined. And yes, I AM DISCIPLINED! Why did I not know that before? Why have I told myself all these years that I wasn't disciplined enough to stay on track and lose weight? I am beautiful. Incredibly beautiful. Beautiful in ways that are entirely unique to me. I have a beauty that cannot be hidden, and that no one can take away from me. I am intelligent, and creative. And I am deeply and unconditionally loved!

The Not-So-Good:

I am an emotional eater. I denied that for many, many years. I'm struggling with my self worth and value. Up to this point in my life, I didn't believe I had any. Now, I'm fighting to break free from that lie and truly discover that I am worthy and have value. This is probably my biggest obstacle, and it feeds the emotional eating.

My Hope:

I am hoping that through this journey, I will discover more and more of myself. I feel like I have only been living a small part of who I really am. I am excited and nervous to uncover who I was really created to be, and to see all the limitless potential that creates.

    Read your comments on myABC blog...Bruce and I have been very fortunate to have visited Azores Islands, Lisbon, Portugal, , Vigo and Corunna Spain, Paris France (actually spent Mother's Day there had a luncheon cruise on the Seine) Bruges, Belgium, Dove, England and spent 4 days in London England on one cruise. On another cruise we visited Rome Italy, Pompeii and Naples, Crete and spent 3 days in Athens Greece on another transAtlantic cruise. They are one day visits in these cities but worth it to me to say I've walked through the streets of Rome and have seen the Vatican, among other ancient sites. I get the "biggest bang" for my buck with going on a cruise!

    Glad we are back together too! I'm surprised the frogs are still alive because they are those little container frogs. I bought them in a gift shop at least 2 years ago. You only feed them a few pellets a couple of times a week and I'm not great about changing the water. Btw, I LOVE your Pixie pic!
