CHICK MAGNET

Hi All!

I have an article over at Cranky Fitness today about visiting the big gym.  Crabby McSlacker is the host over there and she is super funny while still being informative.  I don’t know how much business she is going to get coming from my site to hers but as you can see I have my Chick Magnet on high so hopefully I will be able to suck a few readers in that aren’t related to me by blood.  Don’t get me wrong I do love my existing readers.  Hi Mom!

There is a saying that “You believe you are what you are told you are” so if like myself you grew up being told you’re useless and worthless, then I guess that in normal day to day interactions that other people seem to find so easy I would naturally be daunted in the extreme!  As if I wasn’t the equal of anybody else present!

Therese Unplugged

Friends!

Therese is one of the amazing Yise women who has changed my life for the better.  She is astoundingly open with and accepting of her own faults as well as others.  I can always count on Therese to tell it like it is.  Which usually has me at least, bug eyed and jaw dropped!  Everybody should have a friend like Therese!

From as far back as childhood I have struggled with my identity, I never felt I fitted in anywhere, a square peg in a round hole. Continue reading
