Forty Four and Lesson Learned

I have to admit, I am one of those who loves to celebrate my own birthday. For so many years, I wanted others to make me feel celebrated and special, but then a few years ago I decided to take matters into my own hands and make MYSELF feel celebrated and special. Leaving that up to others was unkind of me…who…

Shoes That Fit

I have to admit something. Since I quit dieting (and by dieting, I mean trying to lose weight through external forces as opposed to internal motivations) I feel happier than I have in a really, really long time.

Rolling along

Hello Friends! How’s it going? I’m doing well. I’m about halfway finished with my Christmas shopping – most of the big stuff is bought and now I just have to take care of all the little things – teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, gifts for the mail carrier, etc. Its these little things that usually make me crazy because it feels…
