(wo)man in the mirror.

Have you ever stopped at took a good, hard look around? Not only at your surroundings and the people around you, but at yourself?

I like who I am, but I feel like I'm lacking. I need to change things up and be a better/happier me. I've been so consumed with moving and packing(not to mention the flu that had me bed-ridden for a whole week!) that everything for me has been halted. I hate that. Tomorrow marks a change!

*Gossip. I do it too much. I'm done. No need for it.
*Gossip and venting are two completely different things. Make sure I know the difference.
*Telling it TOO truthfully. Saying the truth and hurting someones feelings can be just as bad as lying.
*I need to have me time. I haven't even been reading!
*I need to pick better things to watch and read. I need to fill my head with uplifting things.
*I need to focus on being friends with people who lift me up as a person.

I have some really great people in my life and I feel that I need to focus on my relationships with them.  I used to think that the more friends I had the better, but I found out that most of them weren't worth my time. My biggest one right now is a friend who constantly "takes". Our whole friendship is her asking things of me, but when I ask for a favor in return, she finds a way out of it. I've finally got to the point of saying no and it feels great. Shes one that I won't be friends with any longer once we move into the new house. A good friend is one who will pack up and come over just because you are stressed and could use a little help not one who bails when they know you need them.

I just feel like I'm in a rut. Thank goodness everything with J and Little are as perfect as ever! I'm using this time before we move and when we get into the new house to start fresh.

It takes someone who is "real" to take a look at themselves and notice they need change. Even if other people think they're just great as they are. ;)
Proud of you Kim.

That's awesome that you want to take a stand to better yourself and your life! We are all works in progress and we could all stand to take some time to grow as a person. I go through periods like this every once in a while. My best advice, try doing something completely out of the box. New experiences are a great way to grow. You may also meet some interesting people along the way. Good luck and have fun!
