Just a gal getting by on wishes and dreams. Still finding my path in a lot of ways, but striving to make a positive impact on the world. Starting with myself. Trying to live life simply and enjoy the journey, yet still love to see the sparkle and glamour of it all. Believer that to appreciate the dazzle of the stars, you have to also have the darkness of the night. Without one there is no other. Still what we choose to focus on is all on us. Striving to sparkle.
I share my life in Wilmington, North Carolina with a lil chunky black pug named Baxter & a couple of budgies named Barris & Beaker. Would love to live low impact and help leave the world a better place. Trying to reduce my personal impact any way I can. Adore food (it’s a daily habit), being at the beach or any where I can relax and enjoy nature and my Carolina Panthers. Avid reader, lover of quotes, obsessive photographer of any & everything and occasional trier of recipes found on Pinterest. Also a big fan of glitter.
After a physical showed high blood glucose levels I changed my life. Dropped 50 lbs in 6 months and taught myself to eat healthy again. My ideal meal is low carb with loads of veggies, fruits and flavor. I find the carbs rather than sugars spike my blood sugar so I have no guilt indulging in chocolate or whatever I am craving now and then (in moderation). Exercise has been a life saver in so many ways. I highly recommend it & in regular doses. Completely my first 5k in 2013 in an attempt to prove to myself that I could be in big crowds without panic attacks again and had my agoraphobia under control. Little did I know the rush would be addictive. Now I look forward to joining in as many 5ks as finances and time will allow.
I love a good motivating challenge. 100 Days of this, Month of that… count me in. I may not make it all the way through but I love the extra push it gives when you start out. Feels great when you do complete it to reach the goal.
Can’t really say I’m an expert on much other than the world as I see it. Even then my perspective can change. I’m not a doctor, a lawyer or anyone else who can give you advice that will stand up in court. This blog is just a place for me to get out my interpretation on life as viewed through my eyes. A glimpse into the world of an average girl, with a larger than life imagination & optimism.
My beliefs and opinions are uniquely mine, but just because they differ from your own doesn’t mean we can’t all get along. All with open minds & hearts are welcome here.
