A Stroll Down Memory Lane
Julia's post today made me start thinking about the past when I was the most happiest and the most unhappy. Here is a picture of me in high school - yes amazingly skinny huh? I look happy right?
But that was probably one of the most miserable times in my life. Well it got much worse in my early 20's but it was directly related to my life as a teenager and to be honest just because I WAS so screwed up.
These days I am tired and fat and have problems galore - but I am happy. It's amazing to see the difference. I think the public as a whole would assume I was happier in the first pic. Isn't it amazing how to world equates happiness on the first visual.
Now don't get me wrong - I hate being overweight. HATE it. I am struggling with losing weight and exercising...I want to be fit and healthy. I want it with all of my heart. But I wouldn't go back to 16 with that 16 year old body for the world. No way in heck would I do that ever.
So why do I post this? I have no clue...I just remember looking SO good in this pic and remembering how screwed up and looking for love and attention I really was.
It makes me want to lock my kids in the closet during the teenage years as well.
