Me and Charles Manson

Hey guys.
This weekend our weather warmed up, the skies were clear and it was absolutely beautiful!!
So to enjoy the beauty,  I went on a hike.
I love to hike,  and this particular place has a pretty impressive view.
I get to this spot, I see this view, and I feel like I can accomplish anything.

 Ive been doing alot of soul searching and thinking lately, and I have come to the one conclusion that I need to start doing things for ME.
To make ME happy,  so on my way home from the hike,  all sweaty and stinky,  I walked into the Laughing Buddha, and did something Ive been wanting to do for years......
something my husband has declared he did not want me to do....but on my hike,  I decided,  its my choice, and it would make me happy,  so I did it.
I pierced my belly button....actually,  I didnt do it,  Charles Manson did.
This guy looked exactly like Charles Manson.  EXACTLY....almost made me think twice about doing it.....but I said screw it, and I did it.
And I love it!! Every time I look at it,  I am reminded that I did it for ME,  to make ME happy.
Saturday night,  I met up with an old friend from Junior and High school....had a blast!!!  A BLAST!!!!
I told her secrets I havent told anyone and she didnt judge me, which is exactly what I needed,  in fact I think she may have even seen things my way on the subjects...
I felt so damned good and renewed that I got up Sunday morning and asked if anyone wanted to go for another hike....
No one wanted get this........I WENT ALONE!!
Yup,  I went at that 5 mile hike alone!
and Im a tad bit ashamed to admit that halfway through my hike,  I had tears in my eyes....
from feeling so good.
This weekend was the first time in a very very very long time,  that I felt good about myself,  that I felt like I was my own person,  and not just someones mom, wife, or whatever,  I was mine.

This weekend I was MINE!!  What a lucky bitch!

Oh and have I mentioned,  Ive been soda free for one week!~!
AND,  I have cut back to just ONE cup of coffee....swew.........change is in the wind my friends, and I am super excited.
