Don't hate me because I'm beautiful...

In the last two weeks my life has flip-flopped yet again. Normally I'd panic. Okay, so I did panic, briefly. But then I got over that. And you know what? I feel better than ever about myself.

For the first time in a long time, things make sense. When things make sense, I'm able to focus on what's important. Even better - I figured out what's really important to me.

I'm setting goals and re-evaluating where I am in life, where I want to be, and what I need to get there. I'm gonna do it.

I've already lost almost 8lbs in two weeks. My stress levels are down. Energy is up. 

I start a new job on Wednesday. I'm going to be on my feet again, moving while I work. Which means I'm more likely to stay fit. AND the new job is in a field I adore - crafts. I'm working for Joann Fabrics' new store, doing the setup and (hopefully) continuing when the store opens in February. So it's retail plus craft stuff. Woot!

I'm hoping it all works out. I have some big time goals and dreams this year. They will come true. It's amazing what a confidence boost can do for you. And this time, it's coming from within.
