I was confirmed a Methodist, raised by a Catholic and a Lutheran, and I was married Catholic. I consider myself a Catholic. For me the Easter holiday season is a season of fresh starts and cleansing. It is also a time to focus on what is important to us. You don’t have to be a… Continue reading Lent is Quickly Approaching
The one thing that I have learned about being fat if that as a fat person I am invisible. Doors close in my face. People will look around me or through me, verses actually seeing me. It is not unusual for people to walk right in front of me as if I wasn’t even there.… Continue reading Can you see me now?
I remember the day (very clearly) it was in December of 2019. My department was getting up our Christmas decorations. Everyone was laughing and having a good time. Down the hall I spotted the new guy who had just started. I pointed out to the ladies unboxing with me “hey that is the new guy… Continue reading There was once a new guy at work
I have started a February Activity Challenge that was created by Lauren at im_louiseLane on Instagram. So far it is going good. It is not too late to join in if you are interested. I have been making sure that I get at least 10 minutes of movement a day. I know that does not… Continue reading February Challenge
12 days in to our 2022 “Fresh Start” and I already feel left behind in other people’s dust. I am not comparing myself to anyone else, but I really need to get it together and focus. I think my head has been all over the place and focus seems to be …out of sight/out of… Continue reading Get Out of the Dust and Start Setting Goals!
Apparently I left off writing in May and never came back. 2021 was a tough one for me. My year started off with my mom in the hospital, then she passed away, and then I gave up on life and myself. I would have probably been better off if I had kept writing. I never… Continue reading Where did the year go?
I do not believe that there should be a size or weight cut off when it comes to wearing a bikini. I do however think it takes a lot of bravery and courage to wear one. I don’t care what size person you are talking about. You have to be brave. I am NOT that… Continue reading BRAVE IS A WOMAN WHO WEARS A BIKINI
When I started this site with good intentions in mind, then my world fell apart. Five weeks ago my mom passed away. I feel fairly confident in saying that my life will never be the same again. My mom was my best friend. She was always there for me, as a mom, but also as… Continue reading WHEN I COULDN’T BE BRAVE ANY LONGER
THAT TIME I HAD TO BE BRAVE As if 2020 wasn’t hard enough, at the end of 2020 my mom had to have her mitral valve in her heart replaced. She hasn’t been home since then and it’s been 11 weeks. She has had a lot of complications since then. Some have been kidney issues,… Continue reading That Time I Had To Be Brave
I haven’t written anything brave lately because I have not felt very brave. I have shed a lot of tears lately for myself, feeling sorry for myself, and for my mom who has been in the hospital for months. Life hasn’t gone as expected. I have essentially stopped living because of what is going on… Continue reading FEELING LESS THAN BRAVE
