Reinventing Myself

"Now you can reinvent yourself". That's what my therapist Sally told me when I informed her that my hours have been cut at work. It's funny...I had been complaining to her that I have no time to myself working full time, taking care of a house, and being one of two caregivers for my mother. But when I was told my hours were cut at work due to some programs not making money, I panicked. Then Sally suggested I pursue the things that I have wanted to do but for which I never seem to have the time. The theory is that I will finally have time for myself,  which should make me happier and less stressed, and in the process become the person that I want to be.

One of the things I have wanted to attempt was a blog/journal. At first I was going to blog about dieting and eating healthy....which I really need to do. But I believe that my eating habits and what's going on in my life and in my head are all meshed together. So here we are.

I encourage comments and sharing, but please be polite. As Plato said "Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
