"Don't fight to be a size zero. Fight to make yourself proud."

Hey y'all! My name is Melissa and I am a 23 year old recent graduate of Western Kentucky University (Go Hilltoppers!) with a degree in Flute Performance. I was born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia but I recently moved to Louisville, Kentucky to work and eventually attend UofL to become a music therapist. I love life and all that it has to offer!

I've been overweight since I was six years old and I am SICK OF IT! I''m tired of repeatedly trying to get this weight off and failing so I made it simple: this time I won't fail. I got back on the wagon Monday 6/23/14. I'm excited (and a little nervous) to see where this journey is going to take me.

Thanks for stopping by my blog...and reminding me that I'm not alone. This is my first visit to your blog. I love the pictures of your puppies. I also love your chosen field. I played flute in high school and my daughter (she's 43) also did. She even used my old flute. Now her daughter who is 10 wants to learn how to play it.

Out of my 5 grand kids one of them is mildly autistic and he's had some music therapy. Does wonders for him. Thank you for wanting to help the world in such a wonderful way.

Hiya!! Haven't seen activity lately and just hoping you're ok. I couldn't remember if you said you'd be traveling but just to know you're thought of.

Depression? Flutist Performance? Music therapist! I have a Sparky idea you should check this out. Her name is crazy but her voice drips like honey and the love and science in her work has made her the most renown
"mental reprogramer" I know internationally. Belleruth Naperstak. Her website is Health Journeys. A consummate professional in the arena of biofeedback application. It takes 21 days to establish a brain cell pattern. You can listen to the CDs, especially effective before sleep. Her list is phenom! Performance Self Esteem PTSD (Army returnees) Healing Trauma Abandonment Anger and Forgiveness (I just bought this one). I love her weight loss CD. Wellness Stress. Every word is researched. She is used in medical hospitals, etc. She just redid her music too. She uses therapeutic music theory as well. To change the subject...I absolutely love the way you write. So thoughtful, and still so young! Talented in music. Fluent in French. You need to look closer, real close. You got a lovely talented profile and compassionate. What is not to like here????? emoticon Belleruth can help you move permanently away from the negative thinking. Also Louise Hays You can Heal Your Life says it best: Its just a thought (anything negative), and a thought can be changed. Give them a try. It fits perfectly with your career as well.
