    Well, see, that is just unfair to other women.

    that is what Sophia Loren says, and she seems to be doing pretty well!

    I think the reason that people open up to people like the woman who is giving you your facials is that there are not many people in your life that you can let into your personal space, who make you feel better about yourself. When I was a hairdresser, at first I was taken aback at what people would tell me. And it weighed very heavily on me. I had been a psychology major in college (not finished) when I changed direction to become a hairdresser, and I wanted to fix everyone inside and out. Then I realized that listening was part of what I did to make them feel better, even if I did not have a response. Being able to have a response akin to yours was icing on the cake. You are lucky to have her in your life right now.

    Yes, listening is a gift and a skill. I am working on being a better listener.

    I am more of a solver. I want to fix everything for everyone else before I help myself.

    I was a better listener when I was working as a hairdresser, not as good now, it takes constant practice.

    The process of blooming, opening and finding the true persona is a difficult, but rewarding quest. I don't liken it to the blooming flower, but to the tiny sprout, just breaching the earth. You've fought your way upward, skyward, toward what is good, true, and right. Now that you've found the sun, you are growing further, faster, and even more gorgeous.

    I love all these deep thoughts on growth that people are posting. The way I see my past is that I was "living half a life" and now I see how full and fulfilling life can be. If fact that is my working title for my future MDA Friday success story.


    It's funny, I hesitated to even post on this topic because I feel like a lot of my journal must come off as self promotion. I'm not really vain. In fact I am coming from the exact opposite direction, so all these good feelings are foreign to me.

    Even with the binge issues, my self image has shifted immensely since 2010.

    Pebbles! Your voice is awesome and that's one of my favourite songs ever. In the original, when Louis Armstrong starts up, I ALWAYS get goosebumps.
