So I have been doing a lot of self evaluating lately. One of the things I was thinking about is my Facebook. I didn't realize that I have over 400 "friends" on my list. How many of them are actually friends and how many are acquaintances? How many could I call if I was in a bind and know that I could count on them? I think Facebook is a person giving a list of people permission to stalk them. If someone can't return a call or ask how I'm doing then I really don't want them to know what's going on in my personal life. It's time I adjust that list a bit more too. 

I've heard a lot of people say that your 40's are a time where you accept yourself and don't care what others think. They have also said that they are their best and most comfortable with who they are in their 40's. Well, I'm getting there. Maybe this is my selfish time to get me back. I started that by going for a run today. I actually like running and my knee felt better so that helped. I just wish I could control my breathing! I'm going to try to run every other day and use my bike or the elliptical when I'm not running. My goal is 25 lbs gone by my birthday! November 14th. I think that's realistic. I need to do this for me. When I don't like how I look, I am miserable! So, once again, I am going to do something about that!! Look out world, I'm making my way back!!  LFG!!!


  1. I am looking up to you. This is Sonya P from Lewis. And I am right with you. I am 35 36 in Nov and I have been a wife and a mom for 13 years and I have no idea who I am or who I could be. I think I will start to get to know me. Who knows I might start to like myself.

  2. Thanks Sonya. I hope you can learn things about yourself you hadn't known or thought of. I sure have learned a lot. 1 example is, make sure you don't pour your heart out to someone unless you truly know them, but then again, how do we really know anyone. People are entitled to their opinions but that doesn't mean their opinions are gospel and should make you question yourself or your values. I sleep fine at night because I know I'm a good person with a good heart and if people don't know how to take my strong personality then that's their problem. I'm tired of being the 1 to put all the work into a friendship. I've tried and now I'm moving on. Good luck girl!
