It Feels Good

It is hard to see in this picture, but I had my nose pierced yesterday!

I have this new found sense of excitement and adventure, and I feel so in love with life right now. I feel like I’ve discovered a new part of myself, and I really like who I have uncovered. I’m taking chances and risks that I’ve never been brave enough to take before. The past is not taking up so much space in my mind lately, and that feels like such a relief.

Last night I went and had my nose pierced. It was something that I had wanted to do for awhile, but I always worried about what other people would think. Yesterday, I thought, “Screw it!” I don’t care what anyone else thinks, and I’m so glad that I did it. I love it! I have had a great start to my summer. I went over to a friends house yesterday, sat by her pool, and got started on my tan. I also got a start on some of my household chores. I have a ton of energy, partly due to the fact that I’ve been eating well, and working out. I’ve been used to starving myself for so long, that I forgot how it feels to be nourished. It feels good:)

Good for you. I can't say that I've ever wanted to get my nose pierced but if it makes you happy it's worth doing :) I also envy you all your energy, wish I had some.

I've had mine for almost 15 years now and I can't imagine not having it! Good for you for taking such good care of yourself! It's amazing how good it feels, doesn't it?
