When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

I recently made a realization about some issues that have been plaguing me my whole life. I realized that I have been forced to compete for every last little thing that I have including attention. Now in the perfect world a child would never have to compete for love and attention, but this is not a perfect world. These issues have been causing me major problems my whole life, and finally at 45 years old, I have been able to identify them. Over this last week, I stayed aware of this competitive issue, and I found that now that I am aware of it, it is no longer affecting me anymore. Now every-time the competition for attention comes up, I now react with I’m not going to play that game instead of getting angry, like I use to. this realization has been so liberating, and I have been, so much happier at the same time. Before this realization, I didn’t think that happiness in my life would ever be possible, but thankfully, I was wrong!

I got this dress in 2006 in hopes that one day it would fit, and that day finally came, 11 years later. This dress is a size 6, I don’t ever remember wearing a size 6, but when my father passed away I found a pair of jeans that I wore in 6th grade they were a size 6. Now lets just say that 6th grade was at least 30 years ago, but I made it! that’s all that matters. Oh, but I’m not done yet. I’m down weight wise to 165, and the goal is around 135-140. I’m not sure what size that will be, but I look forward to finding out.

The latest in my weight loss!

Why?

Why is it that families don’t work together like the Brady bunch did?

Why are we taught lies?

Why do people say that they truly love the beauty that you make, but they refuse to share it with your friends?

Why do people say I love you, and seconds later they treat you like their worst enemy?

Why do kind and loving people get stepped on?

Why mom’s be mothers, and dad’s be fathers instead of them…

Why can’t mom’s be mothers, and dad’s be fathers instead of them being people that suck the life out of their children?

Why aren’t children more protected in the world?

Why is there still sooooooooo much discrimination going on in everyday life?

Why do people feel the need to take away other peoples happiness?

Why do people feel that they have to use other people just to get ahead in this world?

Why do people have to be so totally heartless?

Why is compassion non-existent in this world today?

Why? Why? Why?
