It's Never Too Late To Make A Change!

"I'VE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT PEOPLE NEED TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES AND I SEE MY ROLE AS OFFERING SUPPORT TO THEM, TO PROVIDE SOME LIGHT ALONG THE WAY."

This is a quote by Leo Buscaglia. He was one of my very favorite authors. So much of what he said were things that I used to live my life by. I would have loved to meet the man, because I believe I could have learned so much from him. I don't idolize men. I only know that this man had a wonderful gift that was given to him by ...

I would have loved to meet the man, because I believe I could have learned so much from him. I don't idolize men. I only know that this man had a wonderful gift that was given to him by
God, and he taught me so many things through his books. His words amazed me.
So anyways, yeah, that is a random thing about me.

I love to be positive and I love to encourage people. I love my life, and I love God, and it is only through Him that I am able to love my life and encourage others.

I love to laugh, and I have a great laugh, because I don't think laughing is worth it, if it doesn't come from way down deep.
I also love to cry... yep.. I am not a pretty cryer, but when a situation calls for tears, well they fall, and they fall from the heart.
"I have a strict policy that no one cries alone in my presence." - Steele Magnolias (Dolly Parton)

I am fat.. there, i said it. But only I can control that. Only I can determine how much weight I lose and how healthy I choose to be.

Heart problems run in my family and I am at risk right now with a cholesterol of 240. I asked my doctor for 6 months to get it under control, and that is what I intend on doing.

I have a lot to fight for. I have my children, and my children's children. I have my husband. I have all my friends. I have so much in my life and I have too many people who need me to not fight for a new me. And I know for a fact, that God isn't done with me yet, and I owe it to Him to be at my best.

So a fight it is... I have a goal, I have a plan and I have the determination.

So there are the facts of me. Plain and simple.

I have tried this so many times and failed because even though I am very encouraging to others, I have never felt worth the trouble of all this. I would get really far, and then drop it all.
Not this time. I am worth it. I will not only make others around me proud, I will make myself proud.

There you have it. Life as Kathy. Love it or hate it, it's me in all my glory.

"TO LAUGH IS TO RISK APPEARING THE FOOL. TO WEEP IS TO RISK BEING CALLED SENTIMENTAL. TO REACH OUT TO ANOTHER IS TO RISK INVOLVEMENT.

TO EXPOSE FEELINGS IS TO RISK EXPOSING YOUR TRUE SELF.

TO PLACE YOUR IDEAS, YOUR DREAMS BEFORE THE CROWD IS TO RISK BEING CALL NAIVE.

TO LOVE IS TO RISK NOT BEING LOVED IN RETURN.

TO LIVE IS TO RISK DYING.

TO HOPE IS TO RISK DESPAIR, AND TO TRY IS TO RISK FAILURE.

BUT RISKS MUST BE TAKEN BECAUSE THE GREATEST HAZARD IN LIFE IS TO RISK NOTHING.

THE PERSON WHO RISKS NOTHING, DOES NOTHING, HAS NOTHING AND BECOMES NOTHING.

HE MAY AVOID SUFFERING AND SORROW, BUT HE SIMPLY CANNOT LEARN AND FEEL AND CHANGE AND GROW AND LOVE AND LIVE. CHAINED BY HIS CERTITUDES, HE IS A SLAVE, HE'S FORFEITED HIS FREEDOM.
