Epiphany (New Year,New Me)  


Tonight I watched a few episodes of "Charmed" with my niece Aimee whos ten, and she asked me if all the stuff in the show was real,witches and magic ect...Obviously I told her it wasn't and it was just pretend,but something strange happened to me when I watched the second episode...I had an epiphany,I saw myself as one of the characters in the show who was like...25 I think turned into an old lady and I saw that as being me,(the old lady,having the best days of her life taken from her) and then I made a decision...I need to change my life...now.

Im not very happy,im miserable actually.

Im over weight,I have no friends (im not really interested in the ones I did have anymore and they have families anyway,kids I mean and never really keep in contact, and when I do,they are busy)so I need new ones.

I want to make 2011 the year that beats the rest in my past,I want to lose weight,get a new hair style,get new friends,get a better social life,have more fun and forget all about why im the way I am to begin with,because of my fucked up past.

It's all up to you, Vonnie! YOU have to truly want it. It's within your hands, within your power. Remember? "No excuses, no apologies, no regrets!"

DO IT, sweetie! You can!

You can do it if you really want it. I did, and it started with 2010. I stopped hanging out with friends who didn't really give a shit about me, all they wanted to do was drink and lie about their great lives. I lost 25 lbs, changed my attitude, met some new friends, most of them from LJ and traveled a lot. I met Gale (twice), Scott (twice) Lee Tergesen from OZ with that fandom (twice), and Chris Meloni from OZ, and a few others. Yes, it's hard and I do get lonely considering 95% of my friends live elsewhere. Go for it, I'll help!
Yvonne Reidyvonnereid on December 29th, 2010 02:44 pm (UTC)
Yea well,my friends are pretty much the same,its all about them and im just the mouse who says nothing,well im fed up with all that crap now,they can have each other and get on with it!

Thats great that you lost all that weight,you look lovely in all the pics I saw of you,and meeting Gale...truly awesome :) I know Scott is lovely too,I have read reports from others aswell as yours that he is (so happy for that you met them both...and also a tad jealous hehehe)

Will need your help with this aswell,thanks for offering it Merrily :)

Huge hugs and Happy New Year x

I sort of have but its a WiP at the moment. About 3 and a half years ago my nephew commited suicide and it threw me thru a loop. Went on medication, gained weight etc. Now 2 years later since I had this spark of an idea I have .... sort of learnt the guitar (something I wanted to do as a kid), went to England for my friends wedding, have learnt Reiki, lost 13kg, about 2 stone in weight (still about 3-4 stone to go). And am off the medication : )
I dedcided to do something major for myself each year (for me its a learning thing) 2011 I think I want to learn a language and I've always had a thing for latin so I think that will be my goal next year.

Im really sorry to read about your nephew hon.
About three years agao my fave cousin hung himself and a year and a month later,his father did the same,I was very close to them both,it was such a hard time for us all :(
But they are happy now,I really believe that,the same with your nephew :)

Your not alone Vonnie, even I feel a little like you do & it's just a funk you get yourself into & your the only ONE that can get you out of it.

Good luck, you have lots of friends here on the LJ & thats great. But RL friends are important as well, I wish you luck, & I'm starting my diet next week to,. Not on the 1st Jan, your doomed for failure, maybe on the Wed, Ive always liked Wednesday's lol
later jx
Yvonne Reidyvonnereid on December 29th, 2010 02:48 pm (UTC)
I started mine yesterday,I said to myself "Why wait" so,im on mine now :)
I love all you guys on here and im so grateful to have you at this time (you are all way more supportive than my rl ones) and your right,we are doomed to fail if we start on jan 1st,I have always done that in the past and always failed,but im not gonna this time!
I hope you succeed too :)

Huge hugs and Happy New Year x

Making a decision about what you want to change.....is half the battle... the new year means a clean slate..... you get to start over.... and I am sure you will succeed.... remember you have all your LJ friends... and you will make new RL friends..... Happy New Year and Happy New You... lol...

Your thoughts and words echo thoughts I have been having...I am making a conscious effort to do just what you say as well...we can do it gal!
I have signed up for a music experiment and am making an appointment with Learn Direct to do English and possibly computer studies...wish me luck and of course I am with you...I say again...we can do it!
be well
later x
