My thoughts on life around me and trying to find the true me.

Books? Oh books, where are you?….

Step One: Destress

The first step in reinventing myself is to get rid of my stress.  Ok, maybe getting rid of my stress is too much of a goal. Let’s start by bringing down the stress level.  I have always said I don’t know how to relax.  At the tender age of 41, how do you train yourself to let it go?

I have decided to start small.  I am treating myself to an epsom salt bubble bath as often as possible to soothe my sore muscles as well as a massage every other week (I might have to get a part time job to pay for this) and reiki.

My reiki master says that I am holding on to the past.  If I can let that go, I have hope that I can move on to where I should be.  Consciously, I know that the past will always remain in the past and is there for a reason but I guess my unconscious just can’t seem to grasp that concept.  Any tips on how to get it there would be greatly appreciated.

In the meantime, Calgon, take me away…….

Outing Me

If you are here expecting to read all about how I am outing myself to my family and friends, you are in the wrong place. This blog is about how I am going to out me to well, me!

Inside me there is a Woman who has been fighting to come out for a LONG time.  It only took me 40+ years BUT I am ready to find her.   I ready to banish the low self esteem, the need for approval from anyone and everyone.   I am ready to find the TRULY confident woman that lies within.  Sure, I may come across as confident but the truth is it is all a facade.  An act in the play I call my life.

My kids like to name the months.  November for instance is Thanksgiving month, December is Christmas month.  You get the idea.  February is love month.

I decided this year that I deserve the love of THE most important person in my life.  Sorry but I don’t mean my husband or my kids. I mean ME.  The time has come to focus on me.  To banish the I suck at everything thoughts.  To find the wow, you rocked that thoughts. 

I am starting a new act but this time, it is NOT going to be an act, this is going to be the final performance and I plan on knocking them dead!
