But sometimes I totally feel like that. I started this post like a week ago, because I really didn’t want to write it. Certain things are so hard to just “put out there”, and this is one of them. Like many women, I’m not thrilled with my weight, and yes, it makes me feel super insecure sometimes. Other times, I could really care less, because big or small I’m still me, and my husband really likes me. I call him a chubby chaser, and he says “No, I’m a Kristy Chaser”. They’re pretty much synonymous, but you really can’t argue with his logic. Bottom line, I like me. At times I’m insecure with how certain clothes fit me, and yeah, I’d like to lose a few pounds, but mostly I just want to be healthy, and if I stay a thick girl… I’m totally okay with that. I rock it.
My first initial thought was that no one inspires me, but in reality I am inspired by many many people on a daily basis in a very many different areas. I guess my first thought was “no one”, because it’s hard for me to pinpoint just one. I’m easily inspired. 🙂 I’ve been inspired by authors, artists, musicians, chefs, poets, preachers, etc. I could post a number of different pictures, but right now today, I’ll post a picture of someone who I’m inspired by right now, this very day.
I know I’m about 5 years behind everyone else, but I just finished reading Eat, Pray, Love. I’d begun my spiritual/writing journey earlier this year (and I’m a total foodie) so this book was extremely timely. It inspired me to continue or step up some things I’d been doing, as well as opened up some other ideas that have begun to churn in me. Great book, great author.
I’m conducting an experiment…
I took a little time to reflect after my “crybaby post”…
I’m going to purposefully and consciously spend my time on positive, productive things. I’m walking away from facebook for a bit, because really, it depresses me. Idk why, it just does, and I’m feeling rather depressed as of late. Since my little basket of “productive things” includes writing, blogging is definitely going to be an appetizer to that. I’ll be doing some personal stuff as well as exercises and initial work for a much larger project, but this here blog will be a warm up, and let’s face it–I just really love my little corner of the interwebs.
I keep seeing people talk “31 day photo challenge”. I’m thinking I may do this… could be fun, especially if I can get my other bloggy friends on board (Chris, Sarah, this means you). Here’s the list:

Day 11 – A picture of something you hate

Introspection coupled with my fear of posting pictures of myself… could be fun. Even if no one ever looks at it all, it could be rather therapeutic. Yeah, I just convinced myself. I’m in.
