Day 25 for Beth

~Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.~

~Bernice Johnson Reagon~

I thought I would open tonight’s blog with the above quote from Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon who is a cultural voice for freedom and justice.  I am mentioning her as tonight’s inspirational, motivational woman.

Today was a really postitive day.  I felt so empowered by those who read my page titled “My Ugly Truth – the making of a fat girl.”  I felt that my story should be told and I took the risk and put it out there.  My hope is that the reader with walk away with a sense that they, too, can overcome any obstacles in their life.  I do not see myself as a “victim”, I believe that each event that life brings us, we draw from that experience.  I am becoming a stronger person and I am learning to say, “No”.

How did I do today?

  • Breakfast – Gluten-free oatmeal with berries from The Juicy Cafe
  • Snack – Split pea soup with veggies and shredded chicken from, you guessed it, The Juicy Cafe
  • Lunch – Stuffed green pepper and asparagus
  • Snack – Energy drink made with carrots, strawberries and oranges from, right again, The Juicy Cafe
  • Dinner – Another left-over stuffed pepper

Evening Reflection:  I am feeling better inside than I have felt in years and I feel really good about the changes in my life.  Thank you friends!
