Who Are you? Part 2

It’s an age old question isn’t it? Not to mention it’s a hard question as well. Who am I? Well of course we all wear different hats and have different titles, but do those define us? Are there things about us that would surprise those that know us best? I have been asking my self this question for a long time and I’ve come up with some answers. Maybe you can relate? Welcome to part two.

I am an 80’s kid. Born in ’75, the 80’s were a time of great movies, music, hair, fashion and style. Life was good. I remember more about these times than I do last week! I could also “joke” that it was the last time I wasn’t considered truly obese, a word I absolutely hate! Until now, those were the most beautiful 10 years. Today you can see me stop and rock out to all those great songs or watch those movies at the drop of a hat. If you’ve followed my journey at all, you know it’s also my favorite music to work out to.

I am a bookworm. Reading has always been an escape for me. It’s a love that was passed down to me by my beautiful momma. It’s a way to deal with feelings and depression. To get a glimpse, though temporary, into another world or life. For those on the weightloss journey, you should read Kelley Gunter’s book You Have Such A Pretty Face. I laughed, cried, and totally related to so much in this book. Grab it off http://www.kelleygunter.com or Amazon. You won’t be sorry.

I am a woman learning to love herself. I made an appointment with myself, to show myself some love. It started like this : Ran the kids to school and treated them to smoothies. Did weights and worked out on the bike (30 minutes=5 miles). Spent some time with Jesus. Did some much needed skin care. Painted my own nails because I can now (before I couldn’t reach my feet). Coffee and a selfie for fun. When was the last time you made an appointment with yourself? It’s hard to carve out the time to do it. But so necessary.

I am a Pediatric Medical Assistant and have been for almost 18 years. Working with littles is my favorite thing. I have an amazing group of people that I’m fortunate enough to work with and caring for today’s youth is our passion. This group has been with me through a lot of life’s trials and through even more triumphs. They are my second family. We spend a lot of time together and know each other well.
