because

i was never going to share a picture here, on line of myself.

it could be ’cause i was shy…or that i am aware that this is the internet…and anyone can see what i post.

but i have done a 180 tonight.  a realization that i just don’t give a damn.

why?

because i AM proud of my accomplishments

because despite everything i have been going through as of late, i have still been true to me

because it matters…alot.

because for once i can look at myself and feel…OK

because it’s always ok to strive and look ahead and want more

because i want to show you all, just how very proud i am of myself
my hard work
my ambition
my dedication
my trials and tribulations

because it matters.
every single bit of it.

all the tears, the nay sayers, the people who doubted me

all of it.

here i am, getting to where i want to be

and no one can bring me down
no one will make me stop.

because

because i am so worth it…and nothing anyone can say can change my mind.
you will never bring me down.

because this is what hope, success and hard work looks like

because i love all of you who have supported my journey.

i show you….me.  the real me.

because…for the first time in my life, i feel like me.

because i respect myself, and love myself.

and this is what it looks like.

i’m a happy bee :)

 

no grumpy pants today!  i am wearing my kick ass fantastic pants!!
 
I am in such good spirits lately.  ever have those moments where everything just seems to flow?
where you wait and wait and wait and then suddenly one day out of the blue everything comes together?
this is where i am.
 
even with lack of sleep…and the white stuff falling from the sky…it feels like nothing can bring me down. 
I’ve been doing some kick ass writing lately, which makes me happy.
 
I’ve been smiling since yesterday, feeling pretty amazing.  I found out that 2 people have gone ahead and purchased Turbo Jam because of me.  One friend has borrowed my beginner disc and is going to purchase it soon.
i know, doesn’t sound that big to you does it?
well…it’s huge for me.
 
I know I am a big promotor of Turbo Jam…it works for me.  I don’t expect it to be everyone’s “thing”…but i love it (as you must know by now!)
 
But it’s not the Turbo Jam per say that has me grinning.  It is the fact that i was told that i inspire people.
who woulda thunk????
I have inspired people to get off the couch and get healthy. 
I am blown away!
Now, these are people who have told me they went ahead and bought it.  Who knows if my blog has reached anyone else…people i don’t even know…i wonder if anyone is out there inspired to make changes.
i know there is one beautiful woman who reads my blog…that i have never met…who went ahead and purchased the dvd…and i was sooo very proud!!!  (everyone say hi to jm!)
 
It means something to me…to know that all of my hard work is being noticed, is being rewarded by getting other people healthier, more active.
 
I never thought i’d be that person.  you know…the one who works out and eats healthy and loves it….
and then get told i inspire.
 
life is funny.
 
So since i am in a happy mood…and have a kick ass weekend planned…let me leave you with a happy kick ass song.
this has been on repeat in my car for 2 days.  I generally don’t even like her….but i love this song  clickety click here
 
Happy Friday kids!!
