Oprah says I'm OK

I read the newest issue of Oprah this week, all about being beautiful from the inside out. And even though I read it while drinking 20 oz of Magnesium Citrate and pooping every ounce of everything in my body, it turns out I am fairly well balanced and happy. Who'd a thought it?

I really like Oprah magazine. The articles. I ignore the cute little must haves, like the clutches that are "so affordable at $300 a piece you need one in every color." Oprah has really left the red dirt behind her, huh? Oh well, good for her. I skip to Martha Beck.

So anyway...

What I am and what I want to be isn't as far apart as I'd thought. I want to lose weight and be healthier, but I'm not as far off my goal as I'd been making myself think.

I am a neurotic, introverted over-thinker, but I pretty much know how to deal with myself. (My counselor gave me a great way to deal with my neurotic thoughts. I say: oh look, I'm being neurotic. The world doesn't revolve around me. Wah! Wah!--- I added the Wah! Wah! part, but it works for me.)

I still haven't been able to separate my should do list from my to do list, but I'm working on it.

I can take myself out in public without embarrassing myself.

I listen to people, really, and not just to think of what I'm going to say in response.

What revelations!

Hmmm... Oprah and a colonoscopy prep... the new spirit journey.

im sure oprah would be impressed!!! :))))) the only problem i have with oprah magazine is the consumeristic view it tends to perpetrate. i do love martha beck, however.
